I was recently asked to join the design team for HOME IMPRESSIONS, a stamp store with their own range of stamps based in Holland and run by my friend Ria.

See the design team blog here.

The first sets of stamps arrived yesterday and I just LOVE this Gothic Arch set so decided to have a play with them today.

This effect on the crow is done by inking the stamp with black ink and then pressing the un-inked rose stamp onto it, this removes some of the ink. Then stamp the crow image onto cream card, I find a slightly glossy card works best.

These pics were taken in my garden, this ring of rusty barbed wire hangs on the back of the shed door and I think it makes a great place to display these cards!!

What the shed door normally has hanging on it!!

Your arches are really stunning and made me go off in search of those stamps! I look forward to seeing what else you can do with their range.

Forgot to say how disappointed I was that I wouldn't be able to buy the frog and welcome stamps!
