Contains Spring in Creative Ways!

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!

More Lovely Lilacs

stampfocus_blog_lilacs

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.

HMP59 House-Mouse® Lilac Aroma Stamp

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.

Mosaic Madness

A fresh look at mosaics is the inspiration for some of Fran’s stamp designs from our October catalog.

With a few extra crafty supplies already in your stash, you can create a fun project, or two, or more! Watch Fran’s video for some fabulous ideas to get you started.

Our large selection of metal stencils is ideal to help you create a mosaic style background. Fran highlights Mosaic Swirls in the video to provide a tiled effect alongside Mosaic Bird and Mosaic Mushroom stamps. Here is Mosaic Swirls along with more Dreamweaver Stencils we think are great mosaic makers! Click on any caption to see more ideas from these fabulous products.

Our talented Design Team has been sharing their Mosaic Madness throughout the week. You won’t want to miss these great projects. Grab a comfy chair, a cup of your favorite beverage, and enjoy more inspiration from them! Be sure to leave them a nice comment if they put you in a mosaic mood!
