Introducing POETIC: Floral Brushstrokes

May 24, 2017

One definition of ‘poetic’ is as follows: having an imaginative or sensitively emotional style of expression. That description is perfect for the stamps and dies which are part of our brand new collection, Poetic! Join us this week as we take a closer look at all of the new products, share inspiring tutorials, and host a giveaway, too. View the complete collection by taking a peek at the catalog. All Poetic stamps and dies are also available in our online store.

    How awesome is this! The daisies on the card in the video remind me of the cone flowers by my front door, that I leave ’til the end of season, so the goldfinches can eat the seeds. Mimi has captured the look perfectly with this card. I think this stamp has to be on my list! And I thought I didn’t need any more stamps!!!!! 🙂
