dkdesigns new release: Vintage Seed Packet!

So excited to share this new dkdesigns set now available from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps! It's been a few months since my last release, and I'm loving all the possibilities of this set. Meet Vintage Seed Packet!

Like Vintage Postcard, this set is interactive, and each piece can be used on its own, or in a wide variety of combinations. It's great for collage stamping too. The flower and sentiment at the bottom fit in the circular opening... that opening can also be used for a shaker opening, or can be mortise-masked and stamped with images from other sets - lots of possibilities there! Here's one concept of how the stamps can go together to look like an actual vintage seed packet.


For my card I used the vintage botanical illustration, and created a background with it. After stamping the flowers, I stenciled the diamond pattern with a Polychromos pencil, then colored the rest of the panel with Inktense pencils. There's a tutorial for this technique HERE.


Love the fonts in this sentiment! Click below for more samples using my set. Thanks for visiting me!!

Thanks for stopping by!
