Today we are debuting the following stamp sets: Thankful, Sunflower Wreath, and the Thanks A la Carte.  All of the sets debuting today coordinate with one another. TE stamp sets are made from high quality deeply etched rubber and come pre-cut and mounted on EZ Mount. To use, all you need to do is take the stamp off the storage panel and mount on an acrylic block. Stamp sets are packaged on a full color panel. Full size stamp sets are on a 5.75" x 8.5" panel, mini set panels are on a 4.75" square (CD size) panel and petite sets are on a 3" x 5" panel. A la Carte stamps do not come on a panel but are pre-cut and mounted on EZ Mount.

For my project today I made a set of tags using the new Sunflower Wreath set and the new Mini Leaves die set.


Sunflower Wreath is the another addition to the seasonal wreath series originally concepted by Jami.  Sunflowers are so bright and happy and they're great for Fall as well as Summer!  I used the set to make some pretty Fall Thank You tags.  The set (it is petite sized) was illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line and includes eight stamps.


I used various scraps of designer paper from the Lost and Found Sunshine pad from My Mind’s Eye.  The wreaths were stamped on Choice Snow White cardstock and cut out using the coordinating Seasonal Wreath die. Once cut I colored the images with Copic markers and accented with Spica Pens and Glossy Accents.


To accent the tags I die cut some leaves from green wool blend felt using the Mini Leaves dies and attached them to the tags using buttons and some Doodlebug twine.  I also added a few Tiny Twinkles along the bottom edge.


Here is a close up so you can see the Glossy Accents that I added to the center of the flowers and the touch of glitter from the Spica pens.  I’m loving this combo of yellows with a touch of green and light blue.
