Preview....Pick of the Bunch Stamps!! and more news..

If you've visited my blog or the Tonic Studios website over the last few days you'll know why I'm so happy to bring you this post.

 Next week sees the launch of my "Pick of the Bunch" range of floral stamps!

I've been busy drawing all my favourite flowers, together with foliage, butterflies, bees, ladybirds etc.
Today I'm showing a little preview of the Peony Stamp Pack .I've coloured these in pinks but, of course, they will look great in reds, white, cream or whatever colour you choose.
I'm really delighted to be working with Tonic Studios on this project as they are a great bunch of guys but, equally as important, the quality of their products is second to none. 
You will be able to see (and buy!) the stamps on Create and Craft on Tuesday when Jodie Johnson will be demonstrating them.

The stamps will be coming soon "to a shop near you" and in the meantime there will be lots of inspiration for projects using them on my blog and also on Blog Tonic

The exciting thing is that the stamps are just the start of the range! There are lots of other crafty products to complement them. I hope you get as much enjoyment from them as I have had creating them.

The border punch used in the top card is the beautiful Daisy Border 2 punch

This is another of the Peony images and the border punch is Dotty Border

On the gift tag I've used the Peony bud with the little snail stamp and the border punch is Floral Border

One more thing - if you liked the Cardigan cards which I made earlier in the year, you'll be able to see a newer version (with a cute little twist!) in next month's Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.
