“Artistic Endeavors” Teaser #2

June 21, 2016

With our newest collection we invite you to take a journey… let’s call it an Artistic Endeavor. Along this journey you will find a special collection of stamps perfectly suited for not only cardmaking, but also mixed media techniques and art journaling. You’ll also spot some lucious florals and a touch of summer fun with cute critters and characters. And it wouldn’t be an artsy endeavor without a few new Creative Dies, too. A full reveal of the catalog and all products will be available in our online store beginning Friday, June 24. But until then, let the teasers begin….



Yesterday’s blog post showed these same stamp designs and how they were used on art journal pages. Today we share the same stamps again but with tag and card ideas.

    Oh my gosh!!! I just found your site tonight and cannot wait to be able to purchase your products. I have only been painting for 6 months and haven’t learned how to draw very well yet. Your stamps are EXACTLY what I need to complete some backgrounds I have started. I love the one with words of kindness, butterfly trio and deco frame!!!! Going to find your page on Facebook right now.

    I always get so excited when new Penny Black designs appear. This one seems even more clever and for someone who thought she had enough butterflies and hydrangeas, I guess I’ll have to rethink!

      Hi Judy! The “You are so Special” card was created by first stamping ‘Flowerets’ with VersaMark ink, sprinkling with white embossing powder, and applying heat to set. The background was then inked with Distress Inks (Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive, Wild Honey, Vintage PHoto) using an ink blending tool and a foam pad. Then ‘Verdure’ was stamped using VersaFine Ink (Olympia Green). ‘Flowerets was stamped again onto white cardstock and heat embossed with white powder. The flowers were colored with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink using an ink blending tool and a foam pad. The flowers were then fussy cut and adhered onto the card using dimensional adhesive. The base of the card was inked with Worn Lipstick and Vintage Photo ink and then the texture was stamped using Vintage Photo ink. Hope this helps– happy stamping! 🙂
