Paisley for All!

Peacock and Paisley

We have two great stamp sets with coordinating dies to share this week. On Monday we met our Poised Peacock and our Paisley Patterns. Both Cling Rubber Stamp Sets come with a free template for masking the images or creating super cool backgrounds. Both also have available, matching, cutting dies! You’ll love these gorgeous sets! (and Free Shipping with Promo Code BLG717 on orders over $50)

On Wednesday we took a closer look at our Poised Peacock. So today, let’s investigate our Paisley Patterns set a little more closely! This awesome set includes six stamps. Five are very definite elements and they have corresponding cutting dies in the die set. The sixth stamp is a wonderful background that is delightful colored in, tone on tone, or even used as a resist pattern. The included stencil/mask set for the five elements is perfect for masking/layering or for coloring them in with stencil brushes, sponges, paint, or other methods.

Fran has created a great video sharing her samples with these fun stamp images:

Wanna win one?

We’ll give away one Poised Peacock Stamp Set and Cutting Dies and one Paisley Patterns Stamp Set and Cutting Dies (so two lucky winners) this week! Just leave us a comment telling us if you’ve ever seen a live peacock! Where? When? Was it just the coolest? We want to know! Or if you’re more Paisley than Peacock, tell us about your lifelong love affair with those irresistible patterns!  U.S. Winners only – Official Rules.

We have so enjoyed this week reading your hilarious adventures with peacocks all over the world. Who knew so many people had chased or been chased by them! You’re all awesome story tellers!! We can sure see that a lot of you would love one of these sets!

We have Design Team Members playing along today –

Peacocks and Birdcages

We really love the new trends in peacocks and birdcages. Such pretty soothing colors and such fabulous, elegant images. Plus the beautiful look of silhouettes is all the rage. Here at Stampendous we’ve revisited some of our classic feather images as well to add depth and dimension to this terrific look.

These new stickers are more detailed than many of our previous stickers. They have a second layer of color added to bring out the beautiful details in the Peacocks. We also have a lovely new sticker selection in our Koi Pond Class A’Peel™ Stickers. Either of these would be wonderful for weddings or other elegant occasions. We even have stamps to coordinate with them.

These new stickers are also perfect for Fran’s Sticker Background Technique™. We’ve used them together with our Peacock Fringe Benefit Kit containing 5 jars of coordinated Fun Flock and Glitzy Glitter colors to create a dynamic card that would wow anyone.
