More festiveness - flowers, flowers and trees!

I'm back again with some more Stamp Soup! If you've never come across our range of 'Soup' it offers you something really different for your stamping. The Soup sets of stamps bring you the ingredients to create 100s of possibilities with your stamps - we give you the leaves and petals and shapes and patterns which you can then build and layer to literally create as many different things as you wish - nothing is as it seems, you need to turn them all upside down, left to right and back to front to see all the possibilities - it gives you sooooo much fun!! 


This is the sample card which was the form of the demo I did live on air - it turned out a little different live but that's what I love about Stamp Soup - you never have to make the same thing twice!!...
This was such a simple card to make and super quick too, I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour paints on this card for the background and the holly, deliciously rich and opaque I adore those paints...
I literally just sketched a couple of lines out and then used the holly to make up the branches - you have different holly leaves so make sure you change them around to give you a more realistic and artistic impression to the branches, don't have them all facing the same way etc...


On this card I used the Lindy's Stamp Gang Spritzer sprays to create this gorgeous background. All I used here was the Reindeer Red and a tiny bit of blue and oversprayed it with the Flat Fabio Chalk White, love how it went all pinky round the edges. The flower is again made up just from that one leaf/petal and the leaves are the larger version so you can get diddy little flowers and leaves or great big massive ones! ....
 And finally today an uber simple CAS card - love this tree - all I did was use some Altenew blue inks for the snowflakes which again everything is from the Stamp sets....I think this is really pretty and is a super quick card to make if you want to send out all the same cards this year, you could easily batch make these and have them all made in a day (unless you're like Imelda Marcos with your cards!)....

You can get all the stamps and CD here
there are 2 stamp sets and just one CD to co-ordinate but as ever with Stamp Soup nothing is as it first seems so make sure you look at the ideas sheet - you can make postboxes, windows, doors, fences with these and the leaves and petals are definitely NOT just for Christmas which makes it a really great investable set of stamps to take you all year round.
