Introducing... Winter Botanicals: Sweet Broom & Quilted Stencil


Welcome back to day 3 of the October 2018 Release product introductions.

This is the fun part, you now get to see all the sneak peeks in action. The Design Team have worked their socks off and created an abundance of inspiration to share with you over the coming days :)

Thank you for all the comment love yesterday here and on social media. If you missed yesterday, you can catch up HERE, where myself & the DT introduced 2 Stencil Designs and an addition to the Simply Said Blocks series. You can catch up HERE with day 1, where myself and the Design Team re-introduced Background Builders: Christmas and Jolly Christmas clear stamp sets.

Today we are introducing Winter Botanicals: Sweet Broom & another Stencil, Quilted. Here is a look at the two products.

First up is Winter Botanicals: Sweet Broom, a lovely multi-step foliage clear stamp set. Though I have categorised it as a Winter Botanical, it can be used and paired with a variety of other clear stamps and products all year round.

This was one of the cards we made at last weekends Uniko Stamping Retreat and I wanted to show how the detail stamps can be used on their own and not just as shading inside the outline foliage stamps.

I was inspired by an Autumnal sunset when I chose the colours for my ink blended panel and I used Altenew inks. The foliage stamp and sentiment (from Simply Said Blocks) are stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black ink.

Next is another card we made at the Stamping Retreat and it was technique based, embossing with stencils...

I'd never tried embossing with stencils before I made this card and it was one technique which inspired me to create this stencil design. I was so chuffed with how the embossing turned out and I'm kinda loving embossing with stencils!

I wanted to make sure the embossed background wasn't obscured too much, so I chose to use the flowers from Beautiful Blooms III and a sentiment from Simply Said Blocks. 

That's all I have to share here, but my AWESOME Design Team have created projects to share with you all too. Be sure to hop along, commenting along the way. You never know, I might just pick some random comments to WIN some prizes this release ;)

WOW! That was another inspirational hop, so many new ideas of how to use these new stencils and sentiment stamps. I hope you enjoyed the hop & will come back tomorrow for the last product introductions. 



  1. A pretty autumn stage to showcase the lovely layers of the Sweet Broom. The dry embossed stenciled background of your second, paired with the flower arrangement, is gorgeous! I LOVE this technique (it's almost becoming my preferred way to use stencils...almost).

  2. The Sweet Broom set is great, the multi-step allows for versatility and I like the modern look of the branch!

  3. Wow, so many pretty peeks. Off to hoppity hop. Hugz

  4. two very classy professional cards Bev. These stamps look very enticing!

  5. Wonderful inspiration on the hop showcasing the fabulous new stamps and stencil xx
