Laurel Burch Stamps by Stampendous

Introducing Laurel Burch

We’re wrapping up our week of introducing you to our new Laurel Burch line of rubber stamps. If you want to try and achieve that Laurel Burch look, we thought we’d offer a few tips we’ve learned working with her images. Stay tuned for more tips in future posts.

SaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSave

– Cats, Dogs, etc. have more human shaped eyes rather than rounded animal shapes
– Women, cats, etc. usually have multiple “eye shadow” colors above and/or below
– Colors are vivid and vibrant not muted.
– Paints are blended from one color to another
– Blend from yellow to oranges and then reds not yellow next to red
– Colors often change from one hue to another in the same vivid value spectrum.
lbcrs01_lbcrs02_lbdcs01_lbdcs02_sscl101_fs_800_watermarked – Warm color blends are next to complementary cool color blends.
Ex: Yellow orange flowers might then have a border color of aqua blues.
lbv002_fs_800_watermarked – Accent with metallic gold paints or pens.
– Embellish with dots, swirls or geometric patterns.
– Offset bright color images with deep blue or black, not just white backgrounds.
– Dark mottled or starry skies are a favorite.
lbw002_sscl101_fs_800_watermarked – Asymetrical, overlapping, close spacing no big open spaces.
– Layers of hand made papers with torn or deckle edges.
– Papers to match the Copic Marker color chart.
– Metallic accents of gold paper or embossed gold patterns and encrusted edges

Introducing Laurel Burch

 

We’re celebrating our newest stamp license, Laurel Burch, all week this week. Be sure to check out Monday’s post HERE, if you missed it. We’re really excited to share our projects with you, and we can’t wait to see what you make using these fun, exciting stamp images.

Laurel Burch Flutterbye Stamp
Laurel Burch Flutterbye Stamp – card by Fran Seiford

Artist Laurel Burch began her creative journey at a very young age. First known for her signature jewelry designs, she eventually developed her own unique style of folk art painting. She celebrated our connection to the Earth and all living things with bright, vibrant colors and images of cats, dogs, jungle creatures, international women and so much more. We’ve captured her look in a collection of two large Cling Rubber stamp sets with coordinating Die Sets, two Perfectly Clear Stamps Sets, and 14 individual images available in both Cling Rubber and Wood Mounted styles. You can explore the whole collection, along with all our sample projects on our website HERE.

lb_web_banner_1200x400_lb_blk_bkgrnd

We are thrilled to announce our newest series of licensed images from Laurel Burch Studios. Laurel Burch created so many beloved and magical creatures, flowers and more that work perfectly to create pop up cards, home decor and greetings galore. We know you’ll enjoy stamping, coloring, and creating with her art.

This week we’re sharing these gorgeous stamps and the terrific projects we’ve made with them. We’ve got some tools to help you bring your stamped creations to life. First, we’ve created a Color Chart to help you achieve this vivid, magical look. Copic Marker numbers are on the chart, and you can download it to color in with your own markers. Or you can download it in full color to match your other media. Click the link above to download from our website.

 

Fran has also created a terrific video sharing some samples using the new images. We’ve got the samples on our website as well, so you can have a closer look. Take a look at the video here –

 

Finally, we’ll be sharing lots of samples here this week and our Design Team will be sharing their own projects on their blogs as well. Do join us for a week of colorful fun and creative joy with our newest license, Laurel Burch.
