Wanted to share a REALLY fun project that our in-house Graphics Specialist, Terry Braddock did with these cute stamps! She had a baby shower to attend and the hostess asked that each attendee bring a onesie decorated to show their personality. Then the mother-to-be had to guess who was represented by each one. Terry is a swing dancer with a country flair so she made this adorable shirt and matching skirt with our Cowgirl Boots stamp. THEN a friend offered to crochet the matching boots! (we’re still waiting for a photo of the baby wearing her ensemble!)

PenPattern – Fun to Doodle/Color!

This week our wonderful Design Team have been featuring our PenPattern designs on their blogs. These simple designs have large, open areas for you to doodle in and color. They’re fun images to use with kids, and charming enough for any greeting! Of course they’re all available in wood mounted or Cling Rubber.

Here are a few of our favorites:

Love the way Lea took the time to doodle tiny shapes into the sections of our PenPattern Turtle. It adds such texture and life to him! Notice the cool Micro Glitter on the glue dot bubbles! Awesome!

Another quick one by Lea Kimmel, the alternating of doodling and coloring on the PenPattern Fish is so fun! Plus we love that she left some sections just black and white! The quick coloring time left her time to add bubbles, Color Fragments, and fancy ribbons to really complete the underwater look!

Tenia Nelson adopted this easy color book style for our PenPattern House. The bright, fun colors make it a delightful card for any age!

Finally, in a really simple card, Fran Seiford took some of our terrific papers made from our Creative Palette and just stamped the PenPattern Heart in different areas. It was a cinch to cut out the pieces and layer!

Stampendous and Imagine Crafts Header

We’re back with Day 4 of our wonderful collaboration with the folks at Imagine Crafts! This terrific company has been so good as to supply us with some amazing inks. They generously support all of our events, so we are super excited for this opportunity to really showcase their products! Our focus this week is on the luscious Radiant Neon inks, but Imagine Crafts also supplies us with the must-have StazOn for stamping permanently on non-porous surfaces like glass and metal, the can’t-live-without Memento inks for using with our Spectrum Noir and Copic markers, and the ooooh-wow-love-it VersaFine inks – our total favorites for use with Perfectly Clear Stamps. We are so super lucky! We got to feature the StazOn inks in our blog hop with ICE Resin earlier this month. Don’t worry, we’ll be featuring the other inks as the year goes on. Lots of chances for you to win.

Speaking of winning!! We’ve got some Radiant Neon inks to give away with our wonderful Fran•táge Color Fragments! We’ll give three prize packages (we choose the colors) randomly drawn from the comments on all the blog posts this week.

PenPatterns are Here!

Fran has done it again, and in our April 2014 Catalog we’re introducing one of her newest ideas, PenPatterns.

Folks seem to have taken to doodling in and out of shapes for their stamped artwork lately, so Fran has created some images that are perfect for this new trend. These charming images have large open spaces ideal for doodling your own patterns into with either black or colored pens or pencils.

PenPatterns are available in both wood mounted and Cling Rubber

You can also enjoy stamping patterns into them with our new PenPatterns background tiles. (psst…these also make great card and page backgrounds!)

Finally, these terrific images make just plain fun coloring! We took them with us to Los Angeles this past Saturday for La Feria de los Niños and the kids had an absolute blast coloring them! Our good friends at Faber-Castell USA were good enough to supply colored pencils for us to use. Our friends at Prima Marketing sent along some fantastic adhesive jewels and paper flowers. The kids were in heaven! Look at this proud miss with her finished work!

And have you ever seen anyone color more intently than these two little crafters? Our new PenPatterns were a HUGE hit!
