  4. Ils sont à tomber ces tampons, merci de nous donner l’occasion de les gagner!!

  5. Wow! You made so wonderful layouts and card with the stamps! These fishes are so cute <3
    Greetings, scrapkat

  6. I just saw Revlie Schuit’s use of the leaves for hair, and thought they would make neat fish, or fish scales; and, you’ve already done it! I really do like these stamps. I am enjoying how various artists use them.

  7. Fabulous work! I love how you turned the leaves into little fishies :-) The washi tape stamps are pretty awesome too! It’s such a versatile set of stamps isn’t it?

  8. Fijn dat je de lancering van Birgit’s stempellijn even op facebook in de art journal/mixed media groepen zette… ze zijn geweldig om te gebruiken in art journals!!! Ik vind jouw projecten ook mooi Marsha, en zo veelzijdig. (Die visjes van bladeren: goed idee zeg!)

  9. ohhh I hope to win a stamp set they look like sooooo much fun to play with! I LOVE your use of the leaf stamp – making them into fish!

  10. Such creative use of the stamps. Whatever comes down the pike these days – stamps remain my favorite tool.

  11. Fantastic collection, fantastic art you girls created with those stamps!!!!! Absolutely adore the leafs and washi tape, but they are all great.

  12. Beautiful works of art Marsha, these stamps are fabulous! Who knew there were so many ways to use the leaf stamp? Thanks for the inspiration.

  13. En toen had ik spijt dat ik niet toch van alles verzet heb om naar het Mekka te gaan; had ik ze daar kunnen kopen….Want als ik jou mooie xreaties met de nieuwe stempels zie, wil ik daar graag mee aan de gang! Groetjes, Gerrina

  14. wat een geweldige collectie stempels, ik ben er helemaal verliefd op, op ze allemaal, maar vooral die I heart washi tape…smelt….
    ook je layout van ‘op dit moment’ is super gaaf!!

  15. I adore these! Love what you’ve done with the “I heart Washi Tape” set! <3

  16. I love washitape. My friends tried an intervention from stopping me to buy more washitape. With the washitape stampset, I don’t have to buy it anymore. I can make it myself in all the colors I want. My friends happy and me happy. Love your layouts. Especially the happy mail one.

  17. I love what you did with the punchinella stamp! It’s on my list to purchase, for sure!

  18. Your work is amazing!! Love how you used the washi tape stamp for a background and the leaves to make fish!! I’ve subscribed to your page and look forward to viewing more of your work.


  19. Love the fishes…and what you did with the I heart washi tape in the second scrapbook page. Real winners! Speaking of winning, I’d love to win especially the leaves or the punchinella stamps. Can’t get enough of punchinella. Thanks for this opportunity.

  20. I love the leaves… and the leaf fish are amazing! Love the colors and the composition! Thanks!

  21. Very nice examples. I love the New stamps and would love to win some. Thank you!

  22. These stamps are gorgeous! I couldn’t even pick a favorite because I love them all! Julie’s decorative bowls are just awsome – yummy textures and colors!

  23. WOW! Such vivid use of the amazing stamps! Started out favoring Layered Stripes, but you creative creatures are showing all of the stamps in such varying ways that I just want them all!

  24. Beautiful projects! I’m in love with these new stamps, so creative! Hope I win some :)
    Thanks for sharing the chance to win.
    Have a lovely day!

  25. Wat een een origineel idee om visjes te maken van de bladeren. Ook de de tekst vind ik mooi.

  26. que d’idées et que de réalisations !!! des réalisations à l’infini avec ces tampons ;) j’aime beaucoup le “punchanella “

  27. I love all the sets but if I was pushed to choose just one it would be the Layered Strips because of its size. Invaluable for larger works!

  28. Ces tampons sont vraiment superbe, moi qui souhaite m’essayer au Mix Media, ils seraient parfait.
    Superbe tes créations !!!!

  29. i love the way you used the “i heart washi tape” stamps on the background–that is also my favorite set! they are all wonderful, though!

  30. Beautiful stamps and really pretty projects you made using them! Those fishes are a great idea!! From the collection my favourites are French lily, layered strips and punchinella background.

  31. Hoi Marsha, wat gaaf dat jij al aan de slag mocht met deze gave stempels! En wat een prachtig werk heb je ermee gemaakt! Je moet er maar opkomen om van de bladeren stempels visjes te maken :-) super!

  32. Love your colours and of course the fishes. Really fun. Thank you for the inspiration.

  33. très belle utilisation de ces nouveaux talons! super technique! bises
