Stampendous P107


Good morning Peeps, Brenda here with our mid month inspirational post where the Design Team are sharing their "go to stamp" and it's always a bit odd when it comes round to my turn and introducing myself, but here goes. 


Most of the team and those that know me could have predicted the stamp I would use for this post, it's been a standard joke for many years that when in doubt Stampendous P107 Agapanthus Cluster will pop up, I even use it in class sometimes as it remains a popular choice. 

I can't really tell you what it is about it that has such an appeal, but it's probably the sheer simplistic elegance and the fact it fits just about any style of card and works particularly well alongside an inspirational quote and and stands out so well against an inked background. And it's wood mounted which are by far my preferred choice, I know they are bulky and take up room and I guess if I was not fortunate enough to have such a large craft room I might have to re-think that one.

It's been my favourite stamp for many, many years and was one of the first I bought. This might be cheating a bit as I have also used Penny Black 2695J Dance, Sing, Love which is my all time favourite Penny Black stamp, but I needed a sentiment on the card as well !!

So here is my offering using not only my favourite stamp/s but also Pan Pastels which are my go to medium of choice and I especially love these two colours together.


And if you needed any convincing how much I love the stamp, the above photo confirms.......now I know it's sad that I have two Stampendous P107's but I bought a second one a few years ago just in case it was ever discontinued..............and two is so helpful at classes !!

Thanks for taking a peek.

  6. That is gorgeous, Brenda! I love the colours you used too. Like you say, Agapanthus cluster is perfect for so many occasions and so elegant, and that quote is perfect alongside it. Yes, it was a predictable choice, lol, but the range of stunning cards you have made with them is endless xxx
