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!
If you’re loving our new Laurel Burch wild animal stamps, you might be wondering how Fran made those wonderful backgrounds on the samples that appear on our website and in our catalog.
She’s made a video to share this technique with you, and we think you’ll love it! Take a look, then enjoy the samples our design team members have created to celebrate the wild things in our lives! Just click on the image below.
Let the fun start! We are exploring where the wild things are all week, and we are beginning with the super Laurel Burch stamps from our April release! We also have some winners to announce from last week’s commenters!
These jungle creatures share the spirit of adventure in the design of Laurel Burch and we are thrilled to be bringing them in time for a summer of creating greeting cards, home decor and more! We can’t wait to see what you make with them!
These stamps are available in our deeply etched and precision cut premium gray rubber on a 1/8″ gray rubber foam backing and either mounted on a premium American hardwood handle with decal image on top OR on a cling vinyl decal with full sized image for easier storage and use with an acrylic handle (sold separately). Here’s a great gallery of ideas to get your creative mojo moving on this Monday morning!

If you are wondering what goes with Superstar birthdays, we have the answer, desserts! After all, a party isn’t a party without cake, and we have plenty to choose between our stamps and stencils.
The most recent of our sweet stamp treats are the Dessert Display and Cupcake Tiers available in both wood mount and cling mount (shown below) rubber stamps.
We also released Cake Tiers Perfectly Clear Stamps complete with numbers and sentiments to celebrate those milestones for birthdays, anniversaries and more!
To make this set even more exciting, Fran Seiford paired Cake Tiers with our Pop Up Stages Die Set for a superstar card insert, and we have a quick video for you to see how well it all comes together, plus a link to the cards printable project page on our website!
Ready for more inspiration? Hop on over to see what our designers have baked up for a superstar birthday theme.
You may see stenciled sweets on the designer’s post this week, but we didn’t want you to miss the sweet stencil products that go along with our desserts theme today. Stop by last Friday’s Stencil Palooza post for a gallery full of them!
It is going to be a stellar week around here as we celebrate the superstars in our lives. We’ll be highlighting stamps, stencils and more that will produce the most cheerful memory-making projects for a superstar birthday!
Superstar Birthday and Oh My Stars stamps work together for a star-studded card or scrapbook page plus they work with so many stamps and stencils in our birthday collections, too!
Take a look at these striking designs from two of our design team members, Lea Fritts and Janelle Stollfus.
And there are more creations from our designers today that will inspire you to create oodles of birthday cards using our new released products! Enjoy!
A new lilac image arrived in our House-Mouse stamps to add to the lovely lilacs theme of products. We adore this Lilac Aroma stamp as much as Monica does smelling the fragrance of these syringa flowers.
And we know the lilac is Monica’s favorite flower because she was caught smelling the Scent of Lilac on another stamp and smelling flowers is any House-Mouse personal amusement in the garden. Stop by the House-Mouse stamp section of our website to see more!
Before we move on to inspiration from our design team today, here are more flowers we want you to see from the latest catalog. Cyclamen and Geraniums are beautiful and a joy to make into cards or adding to your garden journal.
And now here is the entire week of design team inspiration starting with today’s posts.
Fran created this beautiful springtime card easily by using the coordinating dies for the butterflies, lilac, and leaves, but she used another valuable die tool to give the card it’s dimensional look.
If you guessed Fran’s Pop Up, Die Set you are correct, but if you alternately said Pop Up Stages Die Set that would work just as great! Our Pop Up Stages offers more variation in dimension with the individual dies for columns, tabs, and stages, but the results are spectacular whichever die set that you choose.
Adding dimension with our Lilac stamps and dies extends to this fantastic mixed media key piece by Dee Adams.
The butterflies were stamped into Chunky Embossing Powder on a die cut to give depth to the wings. As well Dee added them, so they look like they are taking a brief rest on the antiqued key. Click the photo’s caption for more information about this amazing project.

It can be spring any time of the year with our Lilac Cling Stamps Set and coordinating Lilac Die Set. The large size lilac makes a terrific impression on handmade cards and scrapbook pages with great butterflies to set a delightful spring scene.
There are many ways to combine the images in this set for dozens of unique projects, and we’ll share a few here today! Here is a great video with Fran Seiford sharing various ideas on creating with these stamp and die sets, plus you’ll get some storage tips you won’t want to miss!
Here are some of the beautiful and creative cards Fran designed with the Lilacs Stamp Set and Die Set.
