Avocado Arts Stamp Club - can a girl have too many stamps?

I came across this very new Stamp Club while blog hopping the other week. I'm not sure how I ended up at Kimberley's blog (one of the Avocado Arts Pit Crew), but from there I got the link to the Avocado Arts stamp club and their blog which has lots of inspiration on how to use their stamps. Those that know me also know I just can't resist stamps, but what I particularly liked about these (apart from the fantastic communication and superb service from Michele) was the fact they have now provided me with the opportunity to use up some of my scraps.

This is their first kit and includes lots of individual stamps which you can use to build up your own scene. They stamp out very crisp and are great to use directly onto your card to colour in or you can use them for paper piecing which is what I have done with my card. I've used up some scrap pink/red paper and stamped out the tulip image 10 times. I've cut out a circle from a scrap of pale yellow paper and stamped just one of the greetings onto it and then used one of the tiny circle shapes to build up a pattern on the circle using SU's Daffodil Delight ink pad. I've then inked the edges of the circle and added all the tulip shapes to create a larger flower. I might at the weekend make another card at the weekend but create more layers with the tulip stamp to give more depth to the design.

If you like the stamps find out more by clicking on the links above and if you decide to go for them please let them know I referred you to them as they also offer a referral draw giving you the chance to win a gift.
