Bundle Monster recently came out with a new set of plates, this one in the collage style that I love so much. Of course I couldn't wait to get my hands on them.
The set has 25 plates, and have a heavily floral theme; within that there are tropical plates, garden plates, forest plates, and a scattering of other specific looks.
First up is my video review of the plates, for those who prefer to see them in motion while someone chats about them:
Next up are the still shots of the plates, so you can peruse them at their pleasure:

It's hard to communicate the size of the images on these plates, since there is so much variety within the set, so here are two of the plates next to a Konad plate for comparison purposes:

But the most important question is, how do they stamp?

The plates stamped well without any special gymnastics on my part. I love that the special details in the images, like the woodgrain on the door, are preserved.
Overall, I think this is a solid collection. I love that it doesn't have the harsh lines between sections; I think this gives more flexibility to the plates, allows you to work more seamlessly (literally!) with the different patterns. I personally would have liked the set to have a fewer flowers and more of the other details (like that beautiful door); however, flowers are always good to have and are universally popular. This isn't meant to be an edgy or artsy set, and it delivers a variety of lovely looks quite well.
I bought my plates directly from Bundle Monster; you can also find them on Amazon.
