Laurel Burch was all about love. She wanted to share the love that is the core connection between all living things, and her art clearly demonstrates this. You can learn lots more about Laurel and her journey at www.laurelburchstudios.com
Our newest designs for January from Laurel Burch are all about love as well, and birthday and friendship! But one of our very favorite sets from this release has been the new Laurel Burch Icons Perfectly Clear Stamp Set. This set of little doodles that Laurel included in most of her art provide a great opportunity to make backgrounds and borders with a Laurel Burch flair. They’re ideal embossed in gold or used with your monoprinting plate or other techniques. Here’s the set:
See if you can spot them in these wonderful samples:

Laurel Burch’s whimsical animal figures are her way of showing the connection we all have to Nature and each other. They are always radiating love and joy. How does she do it? She uses a unique color palette of gorgeous, bright, vibrant colors. We’ve created a color chart for you to use when coloring her wonderful images. You can download it on our website HERE.
This week the fabulous Vicky Papaioannou is working with our new Laurel Burch Tribal Cats in her super-popular art journal! From Gelli printing to stencils to embossing to fantastic paint products, you’re going to love the results of her amazing work. Check it out (be sure to leave her a nice comment!!)
The newest additions to our Laurel Burch collection also include some great stamps available either wood mounted or in Stampendous Cling Rubber. Here’s a look at them, but you can see them all with all of their details on our website.
Our Design Team is playing this week with their take on the Laurel Burch images, as well. Please take a few minutes and go appreciate what they’ve made.

Our January catalog introduced some great, new Laurel Burch stamp images to our line, as well. We’re going to share them this week, along with some great inspiration from our design team! We hope you’ll leap in and leave some love for our newest products and our team’s efforts!
The new January Cling Rubber Stamp sets with coordinating cutting dies are (click on the photos to be taken to the product on our website):
Their matching cutting dies –
You can see, right away, that both of these sets lend themselves to a very mixed media approach to Laurel Burch. While maintaining the brilliant color palette, the dies let you cut shapes from paste papers, background papers, old photos, and so much more! Adding the stamp over the top defines the images and creates the look. They’re so fun! Here are some of the projects we’ve created with them, always using our colors in proportion to the Laurel Burch Coloring Guide we developed. All of these samples were created by Fran Seiford for our January Catalog.
Some of our Design Team have projects to share with you today! And there will be more on Wednesday!! Come on Back. But first, stop by and give our team some love!
