We’re gonna be real with you. Your initial reaction to the IOD Branches & Vines might be “meh” but trust us – you NEED this stamp set!
It’s like the bread in a PB&J sandwich – the peanut butter and jelly get all the glory, but they would be nothing without the bread, right?
The IOD Branches & Vines Stamp is a single 12 x 12-inch sheet with – you guessed it – branches and vines! Inspired by nature but in keeping with the style of simple line drawings, the elements in this stamp set are designed to infuse some realism in your floral decor.
The stamps in Branches & Vines can be used by themselves to ‘build’ whatever composition you want but they are specially designed to complement the other fresh floral stamps by IOD:
- Grapes Stamp by IOD
- Peonies Stamp by IOD
- Chrysanthemums Stamp by IOD
- Sprigs Stamp by IOD
- Sunflowers Stamp by IOD
Be sure to pin this post for later as we’ll be adding project ideas with the IOD Branches & Vines Stamp.
The 2021 June release of IOD stamps will be available for purchase starting in mid-June from approved IOD stockists. Click here to find a retailer near you.
IOD Branches & Vines Stamp: The unsung hero of the IOD fresh florals
IOD Stamps are designed to be quick and easy to use (both prep and clean up) AND the images are “buildable.” That means you can arrange them however you like to create a custom, cohesive look. These are perfect for printmaking by themselves or for adding an extra or unexpected flourish to a design.
The lines and composition of this stamp are perfect for impression techniques. The ridges of the stamps are deeper, more distinct, and durable as compared to other craft and decor stamps. They create a crisp, two-dimensional image when pressed into troweled paint, air dry clay, or a joint compound medium.
Other mediums you can use with the IOD Branches & Vines Stamp
Our favorite medium is IOD Decor Inks, but you can also use decor paints such as chalk, clay, or mineral-based paints. For more mediums, as well as the prep and care for your stamps, check out this “How to Use IOD Stamps” basics.
And don’t forget, in addition to furniture, you can stamp impressions on polymer clay, plates and table decor, and so much more. The better question might be, “what can’t you stamp on?” 😆
Reusable Masks for the IOD Stamps
Use the reusable IOD decor masks when you want to create layers in your design without disrupting the original stamped image. The mask is shaped just like the stamp and it covers the original image. This protects (or masks) that first impression as you continue to stamp your project. The plastic mask keeps your stamped designs crisp and clear. It also creates depth in your design by giving the sense of foreground and background.
