Llama Banner

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.

Hooray for our little friends in mousey grey and brown! This little family is just the cutest thing around, and they’re always having so much fun together. You know they each have personalities and quite the story, and even though you can color them how you like, each one has a color scheme especially for them. Our House-Mouse Designs® Coloring Pages tell you their little story and help you color them to match. You can find those here. Each page can be downloaded as a pdf on your computer to guide you.

The House-Mouse family in our April catalog are celebrating birthdays and babies in addition to Summer. Here are a few more sweeties and some Design Team Sharing.

First up, Mudpie has fallen into a snooze from eating too much birthday cake, and Maxwell has a surprise planned! Those two!!

Brush Up Your Sentiments

 

We always love having new word stamps! They can really brighten and change up a card even if you’re using a well-loved flower or background, and these new sentiments can really take the card to the next level! They have big open spaces that allow for doodling, coloring, painting, stenciling, paper piecing, and so much more! We know you’re going to love our new Great Big Greetings!! They’re available wood mounted or on Stampendous Cling Rubber!

Christmas in July with BoBunny Vintage Dot Paper

Christmas In July Banner

 

Our holiday catalog is loaded with gorgeous Bo Bunny background papers. They’re the perfect shades for our Laurel Burch Color Palette, and Bo Bunny donated enough papers for us to make our in-house cards, supply some to our Design Team, and even have a few sheets to give away!!

The Vintage Dot line of papers is yummy! There are lovely dots on one side with a “distressing” of color variation, drips, scratches, and visual texture. The reverse side has a damask, pattern with more distressing used all over. It’s thick, it’s textured, it’s beautiful quality! The colors are perfect! You will love working with this paper.

Bo Bunny Vintage Dot Papers

We used these for our holiday catalog, on our store display board programs, and our Design Team loved them, too! Now, you have a chance to love them, as well! Three winners this week will each receive 10 sheets of BoBunny Vintage Dot Patterned Paper (one each of 10 colors), plus choose our brand new Laurel Burch Cling Holly Cat or Cling Holly Pup stamp! That’s some Christmas Card stamping in the bag!  Leave us a comment telling us whether you’d choose the Cat or the Pup and your three favorite colors from the Vintage Dot Papers line! Please also visit BoBunny on their social media and mention how gorgeous this paper is!  You can find them on Facebook HERE, on Pinterest HERE, or you can tag them on Twitter @BoBunnyPress, or on Instagram  @mybobunny. Our Official Contest Rules are, as always, HERE, and it’s open to U.S. mailing addresses only.

 

Here are some of the cards we made in-house, Debi Hammons made these cards from images Fran Seiford colored using our Laurel Burch Coloring Guide –

Christmas in July with BoBunny Background Papers – And A Winner!

Christmas In July Banner

 

We were super blessed for our holiday catalog to be able to play with some of these gorgeous Bo Bunny background papers. They are the perfect palette to coordinate with the Laurel Burch Color Palette, and Bo Bunny was so generous to us and donated enough papers for us to make our in-house cards, supply some to our Design Team, and maybe even have a few sheets to give away!! 😉

The Vintage Dot line of papers is just so gorgeous! There are lovely yellow/gold dots on one side with a “distressing” of color variation, drips, scratches, and just so much visual texture. The reverse side has a gorgeous damask, tone-on-tone pattern with striking distressing used all over. It’s thick, it’s textured, it’s beautiful quality! The colors are just yummy! This is one of those papers that you hate to choose which side to use, because it means the other side gets glued down to your project.

Bo Bunny Vintage Dot Papers

We loved using these in-house for our holiday catalog, we’ve included them on several of our store display board programs, and our Design Team loved them, too! And now, you get a chance to love them as well! We’ll have three winners this week who each receive a package of 10 sheets of BoBunny Vintage Dot Patterned Paper (one each of 10 colors), plus either our brand new Laurel Burch Cling Holly Cat or Cling Holly Pup stamp, winners choice! Oooh… that’s some Christmas Card stamping in the bag!  Just leave us a comment telling us whether you’d choose the Cat or the Pup and which three are your favorite colors from the Vintage Dot Papers line! It would be really sweet if you could visit BoBunny on their social media as well, and mention how gorgeous this paper is!  You can find them on Facebook HERE, on Pinterest HERE, or you can tag them on Twitter @BoBunnyPress, or on Instagram  @mybobunny. Our Official Contest Rules are, as always, HERE, and it’s open to U.S. mailing addresses only.
