Attention Wine Connoisseurs!

Stamps Happen

Friends of ours are real wine connoisseurs….wine of the month clubbers,  wine cellar in their home ~ the whole nine yards!  Soooooo, when I found this awesome set of stamps by Stamps Happen from their new line for 2009, I couldn’t resist ~ especially since the stamps produced by this company are always very detailed and so well-made.   (Here are links to a few other cards I previously made with Stamps Happen stamps… Guess How Much I Love You, True Love & Don’t Worry…Bee Happy!)

You can check out the ENTIRE collection of Stamps Happen  rubber stamps at Janlynn ~ they have an amazing selection of stamps and accessories!  

As you can see, I put each stamped and Distress ink colored image (Distress ink  coloring tutorial can be found here) into a frame for a collage grouping as a gift for our friends.   Here are some closeup views: 








I also made a set of blank note cards using the same stamps to go along with the framed images…

Here’s the entire gift set, along with a bottle of vino’, of course!   I’m planning to get a basket with a few other treats to present the gift package.  🙂

  10. Mary – beautiful! As the artist behind the stamps I always ‘see’ them the way I painted them so it’s fun to see others take the line art and play. And I love the little frames — where did you get those?
