Sassy Silhouettes in the City

Sassy Silhouettes City Banner

Our fun Sassy Silhouettes are back in two new, fabulous Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Sets. We’re having so much fun with these new sets on various colorful backgrounds where they are enjoying all sorts of your favorite activities. Our first set is Sassy City, and the girls are playing all around the city.

Fran made a special video to showcase these two sets and show how easy card making can be when you can just stamp a dark silhouette over a splash of color and make something dynamic and interesting! Pair them with our Big Words Happy or Big Words Thanks sets or our Greetings Galore to create cards for absolutely any occasion. Check out the video, then the products are below. Then visit our Design Team blog posts and comment for your chance to win some stamps! We’ll give away two of each set!

Aren’t shoe glad it’s Thursday? Oh we are, since it’s time for some stenciling inspiration that is solely about shoes!

This dazzling fashion stiletto stencil is a new design by Fran Seiford with nice open spaces for adding unique details with so many techniques. Here’s one idea by Janelle Stollfus who used a second brush stenciling over the Stiletto for a great design.

Fashion Dame with Lindsay Weirich from The Frugal Crafter

1-20160425 Nat Kalbach and Friends

Lindsay Weirich is having some vintage fun with Nathalie Kalbach’s Cling Fashion Dame Rubber Stamp Set in a video tutorial and it’s perfect timing with the blog hop we just had this week. Here’s her video, enjoy!

Two tips to keep in mind that are different from the way Lindsay used the products. First, ink your stencil flat on the table, not in your hand. Second, when peeling off your stencil, turn it upside down and peel the paper off the stencil, holding the stencil flat against the table. These two tricks will keep your stencil from getting bent and warped, warping will impair its function if used later with paste or sprays.

Products that we spotted in the video are:

Blogging this week with Dreamweaver Stencils

p.txt

We’ve had so much fun showing off our new April products to you, and we ALWAYS have loads of fun playing with our friends on the Dreamweaver Stencils Dream Team. So this week we’re going to show you all sorts of fun and amazing inspiration with both!

We invited the Dream Team to play with one of our favorite new products. We supplied their team with the Blossom Beauty Cling Rubber Stamp set with matching Cutting Dies. When they combined them with their newest products….well, WOW!!!  Our team received a very generous assortment of the hottest stencils from Dreamweaver to combine with their own Blossom Beauty stamps and they’ve made some real magic!

Of course we’d love you to have your own Blossom Beauty and Dreamweaver Stencils, so this week we’re giving away three prize packages to lucky commenters!
