Jungle Fun with Copic Markers

In our recent April Release we had a great time with our new Jungle themed products! Fran made tons of WindowRama cards and dioramas using all of the great dies in those sets. You can see lots of her projects in videos on our YouTube Channel.

In many of those projects you’ll see delightful, little, mini-backgrounds that Fran made with Copic Markers. We thought you’d like to see how she put those together.

Here’s a video where she shows you how, and you can see how we incorporated them in to our fun Jungle Series cards.

Hey, Wild Thing!

Our new wild stamps really make our heart sing! You’ve seen our new animals with cutting dies, our great backgrounds to put them on, and now we want to share our two new Perfectly Clear Stamps Sets with you. Our Jungle Life and Jungle Greenery sets are so easy to use to expand your wild projects. Take a look at these great sets!

Each of them contains our premium, photopolymer stamps, made in the USA, that work well with so many inks (although we prefer VersaFine by Tsukineko!). They each come with a colored index sheet as well, so you can have a quick coloring guide to get you started.

Our very own Fran Seiford had a lot of fun playing with these great sets! Here are a couple of ideas.

These sweet stamps are perfect on just about any project, small enough for tags, fun in groups for cards and larger projects. We also have a special surprise for you! These puppies and kittens come with their very own comfy chair for snoozing and snuggles.

Every package features the sweet chair pattern you can trace or cut out of your favorite patterned papers or stamp to decorate. If you like, you can download the pattern as well, HERE on our website. Here are some great examples using it!

Fran made a great video to show you how the chair comes together. Check it out:

Sweet CURIO Rubber Stamps for the Holidays

 

Curio Rubber Stamps Banner

 

We’re continuing this week with our sweet CURIO Rubber Stamps. These adorable pieces of displayable art are also beautifully made rubber stamps that will give you a Stampendous Impression Every Time. Made from gorgeous, solid hardwood, they have a full-color, wipe-clean index that will display the image, personally colored by Fran, for years to come through lots of use. The rubber stamp side is deeply etched and closely trimmed.

One of the nicest features of these stamps is the full-color index on top. This is a lovely inspiration starting place for your own coloring. Although, of course, you can color any of these great images how ever your heart desires.

Let’s look at a couple more of the animals today. First up is our Tired Kitty! This sleepy kitten is all ready for Santa’s visit, but I don’t think he’ll be able to stay awake that long. So fun to color, you can color him/her just like your own sweet cat. This would be a darling stocking stuffer for the cat lover in your life.

Llama Gonna Have Fun! and Winners!

This week our Design Team featured our three newest animals on their posts. These three critters will really hit the spot with your trendy teens, and your cards will be the hit of every party!

First up is our Llama Delivery stamp! Available in wood mounted or cling rubber, like all three of these stamps, this sweet South American favorite is ready to deliver a pile of gifts to the lucky recipient.

Our sweet Happy Hedgehog has happened by to help you send any greeting you like to your friends and family. Hedgehogs are pretty huge right now for really tiny creatures. The internet is obsessed with their cuteness, and you will make a big hit with the millennial set when you send a Happy Hedgehog greeting.

And last, but not least, sloths are a huge trend right now. We secretly think it’s because teenagers wish they could sleep as much as sloths seem to do. They’re really fascinating creatures, and even their slow-motion lifestyle has been developed for the purpose of survival. We loved learning about them while making this darling stamp! Your teens and millennials will really appreciate this sweet, swinging slot.

Where the Wild Things Are – Friday

We’ve been celebrating some Wild Things this week. We’ve got a couple more team members who are sharing today with their wild creations.  Be sure to join us next week when we are “going to the dogs” (and cats)!

We have a couple more of Fran’s samples she made with the Laurel Burch stamps. These great cards show you that wild things don’t have to have wild colors! In fact, black and white can be deliciously wild. Especially when combined with some great embossing powders! Take a look! (you can find all the great wild animals from this week’s posts on our website HERE)

Now head over and take a peek at some great inspiration from the team!
