Fran•táge a Friendly Greeting

These beautiful collage stamps we’re featuring this week capture perfectly the Fran•táge style. Vintage, shabby chic, a bit timeworn and well-loved (or neglected), all these elements lend a charm and beauty to items and greetings. We’ve done the work for you with collages of vintage and original images combined with Fran’s flair for composition to create these gorgeous stamps. Each with a small space perfect for the greetings from our Quotes Perfectly Clear Stamps™ sets.

The design team has been sharing all week, and they’ve more to share today! Hope you’ve enjoyed the inspiration and might want to add a couple of these images to your collection!

Kristine Reynolds made this gorgeous card without a greeting! So festive and sweet with all the butterflies adding so much texture, and using the Encrusted Jewel Technique on the edges of her focal point!


Here’s some more inspiration from our terrific team!

Beautiful Butterflies

Our Spring Collage images are just perfect for a quick and colorful card! Pick certain areas to color, color the whole thing, don’t color any of it! Stamp on patterned paper for a quick card, or layer over many other images for a textured wonder! These great images are super simple to use.

You’ll notice that each of the images has a “space” that’s perfect for a greeting! Well, our Quotes greetings sets have lots of words that fit beautifully in those spaces.  They are:
