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”.

What would I pay, To spend a day, Warm on the sand!

We might have a view of sailboats and surfers, seashells and beach huts, too with Pink Your Life stamps by artist Nicoletta Zanella.

For a day at the beach, Nicoletta provides all that is necessary to enjoy the ocean and stay cozy on the shore in our Beach Day Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.  Check out the versatility with these stamps from our designer’s projects that go from pastels to grunge hues!

Assemble your scene from Beach Day or make it easier with these stamps, too!

Accent any shore with the look of real sand using our Golden Sand Embossing Enamel! Kristine used it on her Beach Girl (below) and Beach Day (shown above) cards for a great effect. Find our embossing powder in a single jar or in a 5-Jar Beach kit in the Opaque Embossing Powders category of our website.

April Showers and House-Mouse Designs®

Crocus Droplet by Kristine Reynolds

It’s Friday, and our April Showers are just about over! All this week we’ve outfitted ourselves with boots, and cute sayings stamps, layers of umbrellas and let the rain fall with stencils so today we get to play in the rain with our House-Mouse Designs characters and still stay dry!

Monica mouse is so thirsty she takes the chance of a few raindrops crashing upon her nose so she can drink the fresh water from a Crocus bloom.
