“Artistic Endeavors” Goes Whimsical

June 28, 2016

There’s another exciting announcement on our Simplicity site today… click HERE to check it out!



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. You can view the complete catalog HERE and shop for all new products in our online store.


Today we take an artistic, AND whimsical, endeavor.

Introducing 40-477 Cottage Treehouse



Card above also features 51-108 Envision

Introducing 40-478 Little Gini



30-283 Snippets, 51-191 Gift Card Pocket, 51-119 Flower Frolic


What better way to begin artistic endeavors than with new stamps and dies! So how about a GIVEAWAY! Leave a comment on this post for a chance to win a $25 shopping spree to our online store. And for an extra entry, like our Facebook page and leave a comment there, too. (Giveaway closes July 3, 2016 at 11:59 PM PST.)

    Oh no!! These new releases are just too cute and have just swan dived onto my “never ever gonna end” wish list! lol! Although that’s nothing new with Penny Black, as I was just this morning trying to add more Penny Black onto said wish list and I think I broke the website I was on as it kept going off line!! LOL!!! I would absolutely LOVE winning a little shopping spree to get a few off said wish list, but I won’t hold my breath.
