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:

One of the things we’re excited about at the Craft and Hobby Association Mega Show is that we can now bring you our very, very favorite white cardstock at a terrific value. Our new Mixed-Media White Paper is a gorgeous, ultra-brilliant, super-white 80lb cover stock that is perfect for any media you enjoy using. It takes alcohol markers beautifully, but also works brilliantly with colored pencils, water colors, acrylic paints, ink refills, embossing and even computer printing. We use it for absolutely everything here in the Stampendous Graphics Department, especially monoprinting with our Creative Palettes. We’re thrilled to be able to offer you a 25 sheet package of 8-1/2″ X 11″ paper for a suggested retail of just $7.99. That’s amazing for a premium paper like this. You’ll just love it – we promise!

Prize Package from Add a Little Dazzle

Here’s a fun project featuring our Cling Blossom Beauty plus our Cling Hydrangea Garden Set and the Hydrangea Garden Cutting Dies Set. This card was made previously by our in-house Sample Artist Debi Hammons. I was able to bling it up very quickly with the addition of just a few hydrangea blossoms cut from the gorgeous turquoise metal sheets. I stamped them with StazOn Ultramarine ink, die cut them with our Sizzix Big Shot, cut between the petals with scissors and crumpled them up a bit, then added some of our gorgeous Teal Micro Glitter with a drop of Zip Dry by Beacon Adhesives. Talk about adding a LOT of Dazzle!!
