We also brought out four darling Cling Rubber Stamp sets in our ocean theme this year.

These four sets, which retail for only $8.99 each, have two greetings and a complete scene for easy, quick cards. Debi created a darling group of cards using these sets, plus we’ll be sharing more projects featuring them in some top stamping publications later this year.

Our Design Team have also been sharing with our super fun Summer sets. Take a look at their cute contributions. Which set is your fave?

Friday Wilds

 

We have had so much fun being on our wild adventure with you this week that we are certain is isn’t time to stop! There is at least one more day of inspiration at least and then we’ll be on to our next theme that has something to do with magical gardens, but for today we will be taking a dive into the exotic water region of our wild week with our PenPattern Angel Fish.

We have some open spaces on this delicate angel fish that could use a doodlie doo, too. Don’t all fish from the deep so?

Did you see this beautiful card from Pam Hornschu earlier this month? Wow. It’s just amazing! You can stop by her blog here to see it posted during our Doodlie Doe week or use the project page on our website here. The background paper is amazing and her doodles define the body stripes of the fish amazingly.

We have a growing collection of PenPattern images so along with the first release we shared this video to help get the creative juices flowing with these stamps. It is a great overview of just how fun these images can be. Enjoy!

Our last three collaborations have had a a special giveaway from our Australian distributor The Stencil Specialists, we are so thankful that they wanted to play along and widen our giveaway base. If you make your store orders locally in Australia, then we sure would recommend them. Stop by their website to see what all that they offer and also their blog where they share some really neat projects using them. Recently they have been sharing some wonderful projects on their blog using our stamps and essentials and with such a great style on each one we decided to share a few here on the blog today.  To see all of them though, go to their blog posts  here and here! Let’s see a couple projects that Julie created for their blog.

The Angel Fish is phenomenal in gold embossing and colored with metallic gel pens and all on such a colorful base.

This is so simple, but it has an amazing effect in design when done right. The pop of background color is genius, Julie, just genius! If that only filled your mood board half full then we have more to fill it up the rest of the way with our designers posting their projects today.
