 New exclusive Memory Box sets created just for Simple Pleasures
to commemorate our 19th Anniversary!!

 MBOE Images Both

 

Each of these two new exclusive sets comes with
two stamps on one wood mound
 and three component dies as described below:

 -  a wood mounted floral single stem rubber stamp
with a second stamp, a flower petal, on the end of the flower wood mount.

AND

THREE DIES ...

 - a matching same size die of the floral stem image
 - a matching same size die of the flower petal
 - an extra single petal die

 Why so many extra components?!?

So we can 3D the flower petals!!!! 

 

  This is what the main floral dies look like.

 See the petal stamp on the top of the floral wood mounts?!

No need for fussy cutting, the die will cut your stamped shape effortlessly!
