Here’s a quick break from all the holidays! We thought we’d share a lovely, everyday stamp with you today, our beautiful Rose Postcard. This stamp is just wonderful because you can just stamp it, and your background and focal point are already done for you. You can add a little color, you can color it very intricately. It’s so versatile! It’s available in wood mounted or Stampendous Cling Rubber.
We had such a variety of lovely samples made with this product. We wanted to share them with you today. Some of our team shared this earlier, so we’ve just compiled all their posts here for you.
Friday is here and we have a fun twist to the spring theme for this week. The stamp images in the spotlight today all have beautiful blossoms in creative containers!
Our Bicycle Basket stamp is full of blossoms and ready for a fresh delivery to your project and it also works great with our Pop Up Stages Die Set for a beautiful spring or summer theme card. Watch this video for a quick way to make the basket of flowers pop.
A children’s wagon is full of pretty planted pots to stroll around the garden looking for the perfect place to set them.
It is time to start hearing cheerful birds outside your patio door and we have an adorable Watering Can stamp with a bird who has a song! It’s just the right size for a gift tag, ATC card and more!
It was great to spotlight our newest spring and garden products this week and you can see them on our website with the rest of our Flower Garden, Spring and Summer selection anytime you need inspiration or new ideas but for today we still have more to share from our design team!
This whole week we are looking at spring and what inspires us from our gardens! Today’s spotlight is on our beautiful succulent images designed for stencils and stamps with a few in some pretty creative containers.
New metal stencils designed by Fran Seiford from our January catalog are terrific to color in a large variety of hues using stencil brushes, inks, or other media.
And we have some amazing succulent stamps too that look fabulous on cards, scrapbook pages, or in a gardening journal too!

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.
