Laurel Burch – Part I

Laurel Burch Banner

We were very excited to add to our collection of Laurel Burch images in our April Catalog. These whimsical images which lend to bright, beautiful colors just have us completely enchanted. We’ll look this week at some of the new images and then  a little later on in May at the rest of them. Remember that our Laurel Burch Coloring Guide is yours to download so that you can get the Laurel Burch look on your own projects.

First up is the beautiful Imagine Butterflies set! Five lovely butterflies with masks/stencil included plus a pair of antennae to share and the word “imagine,” can be paired with the matching Cutting Dies set to create an entire garden full of magical flutterings.

Moroccan Tile Time

Moroccan Tile Cling Rubber

Our 6″ X 6″ stamps have been so popular with crafters and artists creating many kinds of projects including cards, scrapbook pages, and decorative painting projects. Last week we looked at the new Paris Map (you can see those posts here – MONDAY, WEDNESDAY, and FRIDAY), and this week we’re sharing with the new Moroccan Tile image, which is a perfect background for all these great projects.

Window Messages with Vicky Papaioannou!

Window Messages Banner

Today we’re sharing a wonderful stamp set that helps you make a really quick card or a much more involved project. It’s so versatile, it’s up to you! This is our darling Window Messages Perfectly Clear Stamps Set.

Stampendous Window Messages
Window Messages Perfectly Clear Stamps

These stamps are tons of fun, if a piece is too big or the wrong shape, just stamp it and clip away part of the image. They are easy to cut out because most of the design fits in the square part of the stamp. The handy zigzag makes a great border, or you could use it as a stem for the flowers as Deb Antonick did here on her mixed media journal. She also used our Funky Alphabet to complete this project.

We’re extra excited because the always talented Vicky Papaioannou shared a terrific card featuring this set on her YouTube channel this week.  We’d love to share it with you here!

You can find more details on the construction of this card on Vicky’s blog at http://www.clips-n-cuts.com/2018/04/spring-card-nuvo-pencils/

The Stampendous Design team has some inspiration to share with this great set as well.

Today we want to show you our fabulous 6″ X 6″ Paris Map Cling Rubber StampThis awesome background is great for all your travel memories, it’s a wonderful map of Paris, completely hand-drawn by Fran herself.  She was inspired to do this by a trip she took to Paris last Summer. They walked 29K steps all over this magical city!

Here are some of the samples Fran made with the Paris Bonjour Set and the Paris Map. You can click on them to see them larger, and we will work on putting them up on the website as well. Notice where she has used the free fleur de lis stencil that comes with the stamp set (the small ones), and where she has used the large fleur de lis die cut that comes in the cutting dies set.  Remember, we’ll give away three sets to lucky winners, with U.S. Addresses, who comment!!!

Take a quick look at this wonderful set along with Fran in her newest YouTube video:

We’d love to hear about your favorite Paris memory or dream. We’re giving away three sets of this beautiful stamp set and matching cutting dies this week!  If you missed the chance to comment on Monday, be sure to do so as well as today.

We know you’ll love her little trip to Paris. She also included our new Paris Map 6″X6″ Background Stamp. It’s such a versatile background for any travel-themed creations. Please leave her some love!
