Many of these stamp sets cover lots of seasonal events like Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. They are all fairly self-explanatory and you will undoubtedly be bombarded with lots of versions of them over the next couple of months, so how could I deliver a twist? I was guided by a comment on Facebook about the Chemist and Laboratorie sets - "they are lovely but what would I do with them?" Well how about...
yes, a Valentine's card!! It's all a question of thinking outside the box, and the key to this one was the song title Love Potion No. 9.
Tissue tape is a fantastic way of adding some extra detail quickly and it doesn't cover up the colour underneath either.
Glossy Accents and layering always help to add dimension and there is a Simple Saying for every occasion which can be colour coordinated too.
With the 'chalkboard' style currently very popular, you can use the formulae stamp for any project to do with education; this is a sneak peak of something you'll be seeing soon. And in another sneak peak, why not use the Laboratorie stamps in your Halloween projects? Even witches and wizards need to learn how to create their lotions and potions! I'm even considering turning The Chemist into a gardener or florist by placing flowers or fruit in his hand to replace the test tube.
So to answer the original question, "they are lovely but what would I do with them?", the answer is get to creative and look at the versatility of these stamp sets. With an extra 15% Friday Focus discount there has never been a better time to add them to your collection. See all the Tim Holtz sets on special offer at The Funkie Junkie Boutique here.
