May 2017 New Stamps!


 
Welcome to the May 2017 Quietfire rubber stamp release. There are eight new stamp sets to play with! (Wow, 8!!)
Where to start….? 
I absolutely love sayings with double meanings.  I guess that’s why the two music stamps are my favourite!  The Music in my Heart sentiment was sent to me by Karen S (I’ll be sending you a complimentary stamp Karen!)  and is such a beautiful sentiment.  It’s perfect for a sympathy card.  Let me know what you'd use it for!


The Music in my Heart
 

The other music stamp saying is from Design Team member Connie Nichol.  Whether you’re talking about music or comfortable companionship with a friend, Moments of Silence applies.

The Leafy Acanthus Background is from an illustration I did years ago in the William Morris style.  Use it with a light coloured stamp ink for a subtle effect.  I think the quiet floral background combines beautifully with the “stillness” of the The Greatest Revelation.  Makes you pause and think.

 Thanks to a big nudge from Cheryl A., the Queen of Everything, which was sold out, has been resurrected. It’s a bit different, but the sentiment is still as strong as ever!  Cheryl, I’ll be sending you a complimentary set.


Queen of Everything
 
This new Modern Calligraphy style works well with whimsical sayings, so here is a really fun set of stamps.  If you have the Wishing You A die set, then you can combine it with Wishing You Whimsy perfectly!

And last but not least, for those who like to doodle and colour there are two new sets of Fill 'er Up Caps:  DAD and MUM
Both these sets only have two letters, as one is repeated.  If you already have our JOY or LOVE set, then it's easy to make MOM
This brings our total of Fill 'er Up Letters to 11....  ADEJLMOUVY and T is part of the Thanks - Fill 'er Up set.  If you're feeling adventurous, flip the M upside-down for W and the U upside-down for N!  That takes us to 13 letters - half way there! Give it some time and we'll have the whole alphabet!

DAD



MUM

And that's it for now! Have fun and happy creating!
