Hello everyone! Welcome to Day 3 of Waffle Flower Crafts April Release!

Introducing Rock My World Stamp Set

I hope that we can have something unique in every one of our releases. And today's set is that special one in this release. As the weather gets warmer, I start to think summer and all the happy memories I had when visiting my grandma's during summer vacations. There was a river near her house and I remember spending hours playing with the river rocks. I've seen a lot of stone painting artwork lately and it encouraged me to make a stamp set about rocks.

Rock My World Stamp set

The rock shapes were created from scans of some real rocks we picked up during a morning walk. I cannot draw these organic shapes from scratch - for some reason, only the real ones seemed natural. Rock My World Stamp Set Preview [add_to_cart id="" sku="271003"]

And a card

Hi! I'm Lorena Cantó: A Spanyard mother, wife, dog lover and full time journalist specialized in foreign affairs by day... and passionate paper crafter 24/7. We are currently posted in Bolivia, South America, and my love for all things ink and die cutting travels with me around the world. From the barest clean & graphic to the unbelievably inky and messy, there's no creative technique I'm not keen to try!
Lorena is an avid contributor to one of my favorite paper crafts magazines. She is often the creator of my favorite projects in an entire issue. I met her during my trip to CHA show earlier this year and enjoyed spending time with her. No wonder her name popped up when I was putting together the design team, right?
