Eret's favourite stamps


Good morning, it's time for our mid month inspirational post and a reminder that this months theme is 'Pretty in Pink", there is a fabulous £40 store voucher to be won from PDA who sell not only great quality cardstock and essentials, but much more as well including stamps, embellishments and products from many of our favourite crafts stores such as Imagination and Hobby House.

This time it is Eret who is sharing her five favourite stamps with you. Eret lives in Estonia and I think the beauty of her Country shows through in many of her cards, I will hand you over to her to tell you more about her choices........

"Hi! It's my turn to share my favorite stamps. Oh boy....It's much more difficult than making a card. I have to admit that I failed. I am not able to choose five single stamps. I bring out five stamp sets and try to select favorite images from them.

I'll start with my favorite background stamp: Sparkle N Sprinkle Crackle Background. It's fabulous for adding pattern and texture to all kind of projects.

On this suitcase I stamped the image with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Copper Flame and Caramel embossing powders. I like how this pattern makes it look like an old leather.


Crackle Background looks awesome on masculine cards. On this graduation card it's stamped again with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Clear Detail EP.


I love butterflies. I reach over and over again to the Hero Arts Butterflies #3 set. I can't choose which butterfly from the set is my favorite.

On following card I used butterflies as embellishments. They are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with Promarkers and fussy cut.

I also love flourishes and swirls. I have many sets but Viva D├ęcor Floral Embellishments I like most. My favorite stamp in there is the largest.

Here's a card with the large flourish and previously mentioned butterflies. Flourish is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and I added some stickles to it.


Shabby Chic Birdhouse  is most gorgeous stamp set I have. I love these pretty images and beautifully designed sentiments.

The bird from this set is so adorable. It's perfect for spring cards. Here's one earlier card I used this image.

I also used the birdhouse and sentiment on a chocolate pocket card.

Here is one more beautiful stamp set - Dahlia. Again, I'm not able to choose one favorite stamp from the set - maybe two: largest flower and leaves. But they are all wonderful.

You can make awesome layering with those images. On following card, largest flower is popped up in four layers.
