This was the "Mystery Stamp" at Cyberstampers for the month of June, 2004.

Just look what folks did..............

These three cards are the work of Wanda Hentges.

Each very different from the other, all striking.


Cindy Cade's lush color selection shows the stamps off beautifully.

Linda Ferguson's soft color combination and intricate cutting took the images in another direction entirely.

Vincentia Faddis used soft greens, embossing and sparkle to come up with this "rendition." The repetition is very effective.


DIY VIOLETS art stamps, rubber stamps, unmounted rubberstamps

D0-it-Yourself Violet Kit

These offerings to the "carving gods" are "practice pieces" for a complex project thatwas never completed. But...the leaves, blossoms and the tiny "center" are useful for making solid floral backgrounds, frames or individual blossoms. Both solid and "outline" versions offer versatility. Originally "actual size," they have been reduced to fit more attractively on standard fold cards. This set is larger that some of the other blossom/leaf combinations.

Approximately 3 x 3 3/4"

The set...$7.00


HYDRANGEA seaasonal, unmounted, rubberstamps


21 N

3 x 4 " $8.00



Small Hydrangea and Shadow Stamp

Each 1 3/4 x 1 3/8 $4.25

FLORAL MINIS MODIFIED art stamps, rubber stamps, unmounted rubberstamps

These images are modified versions of existing stamps. Many of you will recognize all the "traditional" card size floral designs which have been reduced and modified to offer additional options for use. The borders have been removed to allow more flexibility.

If you already own the full size version and/or the previously produced mini versions, you'll find these stamps work well with those designs.

If you are new to the carved florals, this is a great way to "play" with all the images.

Flat 5 1/2 x 8" -- Most images 1 1/2 to 2" high by 1 1/2" wide.

21 J $18.00

Got to playing with this stamp and it reminded me of a Hawaiian shirt..couldn't resist trying this out with a pattern I have had in my file cabinet forever.

One of the great things about how Ida uses stamp images....it's hard at times to identify the stamp! Makes the work truly personal and unique.
