Silhouette stamp collection from Stamps By Me

Good morning everyone

I've been very busy sampling the absolutely gorgeous new Silhouette stamp and die collection from Stamps By Me  which are being showcased tomorrow on c&c

For these samples I've used:
Wildflowers 1,2,3,4,5
Wild Trees
Leaf 1 die
By The Moonlight stamp
Distressed patterns stamp
Distress Oxides
Distress Inks
Clear gems
Embossing powder
Versmark Ink

Used Wildflower 5 stamp set
The background panel was created using Iced Spruce DO, which I blended over the flowers that had been stamped and heat embossed in white
The Distressed Patterns stamp was inked in the Iced Spruce around the edges of the white layer, to create a frame

Used Wildflower 4 and 5 stamp set
Cracked Pistachio and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxides were blended through a Mondrian template.
Honeycomb and a harlequin stencil were inked through randomly over the top of the Mondrian stencil,  to create extra depth
The flowers were inked through areas of the framed stencil in black onyx versafine

Used Wildflower 2 and By The Moonlight stamp set
Cracked Pistachio and Peeled Paint Distress Oxides were blended through a square stencil, which was also slightly twisted and inked around the edges again, to create a shadow effect
The grasses were stamped in a combination of Olympia Green, Vintage Sepia and Habanero Versafine.  The moon was stamped in Iced Spruce DO

Used Wild Trees stamp
Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxides were blended through a leaf stencil
The stamps were inked up in Vintage Sepia versafine

Used Wildflower 2 stamp
The Leaf 1 die was used to cut out an aperture. A background was created, on a seperate piece of card, using Worn Lipstick and Fossilized Amber DO. The moon stamp, from By The Moonlight,  was stamped using water to create a bleached out effect.
The grasses were stamped in Spiced Marmalade DO and Fired Brick DI.  The sentiment stamped in Habanero Versafine. This was then adhered behind the Leaf aperture panel, before matting and layering onto card blank

I hope you like these stamps as much as I do. They stamp beautifully and are so versatile,  as you can see from these samples

Thankyou very much for stopping by
