Peacocks Galore

Peacock and Paisley

We’re sharing two great new Cling Rubber Stamp Sets with Matching Cutting Dies this week. We met our Poised Peacock and our Paisley Patterns on Monday . 

Both Cling Rubber Stamp Sets come with a free template for masking the images or creating super cool backgrounds. You’ll love these gorgeous sets! Today, let’s look closer at our Poised Peacock.

The set has four stamps and a stencil that makes a great peacock feather background. The matching cutting dies cut right on the edge, with even the peacock feet cutting out perfectly. We evened the dies out around the edges of the feathers, so a little coloring “outside the lines” will produce easy-to-cut feathers that look amazing.

 

Fran has made a wonderful video sharing her samples with this great stamp set and dies.

Wanna win one?

We’ll give away one Poised Peacock Stamp Set and Cutting Dies and one Paisley Patterns Stamp Set and Cutting Dies (so two lucky winners) this week! Just leave us a comment telling us if you’ve ever seen a live peacock! Where? When? Was it just the coolest? We want to know! Or if you’re more Paisley than Peacock, tell us about your lifelong love affair with those irresistible patterns! U.S. Winners only – Official Rules.

We have Design Team Members playing along today –

And some inspiration from our website – All these samples are by Fran Seiford. You can find them all on our website by searching “Peacock”.
