Funky Fossil Designs - New Release day and Giveaway!!!!

Yippee, yippee, its finally release day at Funky Fossil Designs!!!

All five new stamp sets are available to purchase now in the store, and while your there you can check out the previous stamp releases and all the incredible stencils Sarah has created!!

To celebrate this fabulous day I created a card using two of the new stamp sets:

I was trying to photograph this card the other day with our new kitten Remy, so please excuse the slight slant/lean to the right as she kept trying to jump in the photobox to play with the Studio Katia pearls.....

I stamped the floral and owl images from the 'Quirky Owls' and 'Blooming Birthday' stamp sets, using Gina K Amalgam black ink on white CS. I coloured them all with my Altenew Artist Markers and then fussy cut out.

To capture some of the marker colours I used, I cut out  panels of green and lavender CS. The green was adhered straight to the card front and the lavender popped up on a piece of white foam. I arranged and glued the floral pieces on the panel and then put the owl on foam tape. I stamped the sentiment (from 'Quirky Owls') with Altenew 'Lavender Fields' ink and put on foam tape, along with some Neat and Tangled sequins.

There is a HUGE GIVEAWAY for this release. You could win yourself all of the five stamps released today, that would be amazing!!!! All you have to do is leave a comment on the Funky Fossil Design Release Day Blog Post.  And you can increase your chances by leaving comments on the Design Team Release Day blog posts and Instagram posts too. 

So excited to see what stamp sets you have your eyes on, and then to see all the gorgeous cards and projects you create with them. I'll be back again in a few days with some more cards using this new release.

Happy shopping and enjoy the weekend!

Take care
