Paisley for All!

Peacock and Paisley

We have two great stamp sets with coordinating dies to share this week. On Monday we met our Poised Peacock and our Paisley Patterns. Both Cling Rubber Stamp Sets come with a free template for masking the images or creating super cool backgrounds. Both also have available, matching, cutting dies! You’ll love these gorgeous sets! (and Free Shipping with Promo Code BLG717 on orders over $50)

On Wednesday we took a closer look at our Poised Peacock. So today, let’s investigate our Paisley Patterns set a little more closely! This awesome set includes six stamps. Five are very definite elements and they have corresponding cutting dies in the die set. The sixth stamp is a wonderful background that is delightful colored in, tone on tone, or even used as a resist pattern. The included stencil/mask set for the five elements is perfect for masking/layering or for coloring them in with stencil brushes, sponges, paint, or other methods.

Fran has created a great video sharing her samples with these fun stamp images:

Peacocks Galore

Peacock and Paisley

We’re sharing two great new Cling Rubber Stamp Sets with Matching Cutting Dies this week. We met our Poised Peacock and our Paisley Patterns on Monday . 

Both Cling Rubber Stamp Sets come with a free template for masking the images or creating super cool backgrounds. You’ll love these gorgeous sets! Today, let’s look closer at our Poised Peacock.

The set has four stamps and a stencil that makes a great peacock feather background. The matching cutting dies cut right on the edge, with even the peacock feet cutting out perfectly. We evened the dies out around the edges of the feathers, so a little coloring “outside the lines” will produce easy-to-cut feathers that look amazing.

 

Fran has made a wonderful video sharing her samples with this great stamp set and dies.

Acoustic Sounds and some Winners

The burst of Acoustic Sounds is evident on our collage style stamp by the same name. It’s swooping and swirling seems to elevate the guitar above the musical background and with these layers already built in to the design you can create a full A2 size card  (4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches) in minutes.

R224 Acoustic Sounds Wood Mount Rubber Stamp (also available in Cling Mount)

This fantastic card example by Fran Seiford is perfect for a quick card. It has a great rythmic feel to it with that colorful background created using the Creative Palette Rectangles plate.

CHA Show Banner

The CHA show floor opens tomorrow for the mega blast of new products in the craft industry! We wish you were here! (if you ARE here, visit us in Booth #723) While it’s not open to the public, we can sure give you a peek at the newest products from Stampendous!

Our Creative Palette Monoprinting plate we released last year has been a HUGE hit! Folks are loving the terrific patterned papers they can print with this versatile tool, plus the fact that they can easily pick it up and transfer the pattern to home decor and other projects. Decorative Painters are thrilled with the way it performs as a palette! It’s just all around a must-have for your studio.

This year we’re thrilled to release two new versions of the Creative Palette. Rounds and Rectangles. Both include new palette shapes and sizes plus images you can use on an acrylic stamp handle to create more patterns and backgrounds. You’ll love them both. Fran has made some terrific videos for you to see the benefits of these new additions to the Creative Palette family!

 

Creative Palette – Rounds
