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.

Laurel Burch Whimsy and Fun!

Colorful Laurel Burch Banner

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.
