Colorful Laurel Burch

Colorful Laurel Burch Banner

We are so privileged to be the licensee for artist Laurel Burch’s wonderful artwork in the realm of rubber stamps! Her work is so colorful and bright and full of life and fun. We are always delighted to see what folks share with these stamps. If you share anything, please do let us know by dropping us an email at submissions@stampendous.com with a link to your work. Or you can always join our Stampendous Facebook Group and post your wonderful projects there. We have a Pinterest Board just for Laurel Burch Creations, and we share them on Instagram as well. We’d also love to suggest that you visit laurelburchstudios.com, since the work of this fabulous artist is available on so many other products including tote bags, jewelry, and so much more!

Our January catalog introduced some great, new Laurel Burch stamp images to our line, as well. We’re going to share them this week, along with some great inspiration from our design team! We hope you’ll leap in and leave some love for our newest products and our team’s efforts!

The new January Cling Rubber Stamp sets with coordinating cutting dies are (click on the photos to be taken to the product on our website):

and

Their matching cutting dies –

LBDCS07 Magical Horses Cutting Dies

You can see, right away, that both of these sets lend themselves to a very mixed media approach to Laurel Burch. While maintaining the brilliant color palette, the dies let you cut shapes from paste papers, background papers, old photos,  and so much more! Adding the stamp over the top defines the images and creates the look. They’re so fun! Here are some of the projects we’ve created with them, always using our colors in proportion to the Laurel Burch Coloring Guide we developed. All of these samples were created by Fran Seiford for our January Catalog.

 

Some of our Design Team have projects to share with you today! And there will be more on Wednesday!! Come on Back. But first, stop by and give our team some love!

Prize Package from Add a Little Dazzle

Here’s my sample using the Blossom Beauty. I die cut the flowers after I stamped them with StazOn. I stamped the Butterfly with our W120 Rattan Weave stamp before die cutting him and stamped it on the card front as well. The butterfly is from the Lovely Garden Die Set. Notice that I added our Gold Holographic Dot Sparklers Class A’Peels™ Stickers to the flower center for even more dazzle!

Imagine Crafts and Stampendous – GLOW!!

Stampendous and Imagine Crafts Header

We’re back with Day 4 of our wonderful collaboration with the folks at Imagine Crafts! This terrific company has been so good as to supply us with some amazing inks. They generously support all of our events, so we are super excited for this opportunity to really showcase their products! Our focus this week is on the luscious Radiant Neon inks, but Imagine Crafts also supplies us with the must-have StazOn for stamping permanently on non-porous surfaces like glass and metal, the can’t-live-without Memento inks for using with our Spectrum Noir and Copic markers, and the ooooh-wow-love-it VersaFine inks – our total favorites for use with Perfectly Clear Stamps. We are so super lucky! We got to feature the StazOn inks in our blog hop with ICE Resin earlier this month. Don’t worry, we’ll be featuring the other inks as the year goes on. Lots of chances for you to win.

Speaking of winning!! We’ve got some Radiant Neon inks to give away with our wonderful Fran•táge Color Fragments! We’ll give three prize packages (we choose the colors) randomly drawn from the comments on all the blog posts this week.

STM Imagine Crafts Prize Package

These inks are just as brilliant and opaque on paper as they are in the package! You’ll be so pleased with them. Look at this terrific sample from Design Team Member Kristine Reynolds:

These April Flowers Need No Showers!

Bowl Bouquet by Janelle Stollfus (R199)

Last week our Design Team celebrated with a look at all the terrific Stampendous floral images! We always tell beginning stampers that if you just get some good flowers and a good set of greetings, you can make cards for any occasion. It’s so true! Flowers are appropriate for everything. And our Jumbo Cling Rubber Flowers come with a free Template and Mask so you can stencil backgrounds, mask the images, mask the backgrounds, use chalk, spritzy stuff, sponging, embossing…the sky is the limit! Let’s take a look at what our Design Team has done with these April Flowers!
