Default Silhouette Stamps ... which one?

I'm thinking of buyinh silhoette style flower stamps ... any suggestions ? Due to budgetary constraints I can only afford one ... if possible with a corner type stamp included.

TIA.

Starving Artistamps carries some beautiful floral silhouette images in two different sizes. You can find the large images here and the smaller ones here.

I have a few cards made with some of the large silhouette images in my gallery:
Soft Silhouette
Color Blocked Floral Silhouette
Spritzed Floral Silhouette
Sparkly Silhouette

Inkadinkado have some clear silhouette stamp sets

http://www.inkadinkado.com/products/...stamps&max=all

I don't have any of their flower sets - yet! - but I have the Birds Galore set and am really happy with the quality and they are good value.

I love my Silhouette Blooms I set from Cornish Heritage Farms - you can see it here. No corner stamp but four really useful sentiment stamps included - I love the font styles of these!

There are two more gorgeous silhouette sets at CHF:
Nature's Silhouettes
Silhouette Blooms II

They each have great botanicals in silhouette, and very pretty sentiments.

I'm reviving this from the SCS old thread graveyard see if anyone has new suggestions for flower silhouettes. I'm sure many new sets of stamps have come out since last June.

Specifically, does anyone have any suggestions for a large size flower silhouette? I'm contemplating making the wedding invitations for my brother's wedding and his fiance really likes the look of something like this or this.

Thanks in advance!

This is a nice flower silhouette from Hero Arts - but it is a stamp for the bottom of a card as opposed to a long one for the sides. Thought I'd post it anyway!

the angel company has a cool silhouette stamp in the new catalog.- not a flower but its a head of a woman. Its interesting and could be used with florals.

One of the stamps on the new Tim Holtz Fairytale Frenzy set kind of has that look about it but I don't know how big it is. The best pic I've seen of it is here (this is a UK store) - look around for internet or local stockists if it's the sort of thing you want.

For ultimate flexibility on sizing, you might want to think about using a smaller stamp and multi-stamping rather than trying to find something that would do the whole thing. Take a look at this tutorial by Keri Sereika for a good example of a single floral used to create a 'vine' effect.

Have fun!

Thanks for all your suggestions!

'Vining' with a smaller stamp may be the way to go, especially if she'd like to incorporate more than one type of flower in the image. I really like the Tim Holtz set too!

Don't forget to check out Stampin Up. There are a couple new florals that I think would fit the bill.

There is a rather full sized set from Paper Inspirations that you can pick up at Hobby Lobby - try and use your 40% coupon. Lots of different images, flowers and grasses, not sure about a corner image. It is clingable red rubber, not clear. But with a coupon it is a really good number of images and good sized images. Sorry no link, but maybe a search on Paper Inspirations red rubber sets will provide a photo.
