Introducing POETIC: Summer Fun

May 26, 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.

Summer fun.
Bright and happy.
Today let’s take a closer look at new stamps and dies which are essentials as the temps begin to rise.

Introducing 51-356 Summer Goodies

Introducing 40-522 Happy Birthday

If you’re looking for a bold card design that can be made using only one stamp, here’s a fun card idea for you.

stamps used on card shown above: 40-522, 51-353

Jill began by adding faux stitched lines to her watercolor paper using our Creative Die, 51-353 Cut Out Borders.

Next she stamped the new Slapstick/Cling stamp, 40-522 Happy Birthday, using waterproof ink.

She painted her image and background using Distress Reinkers used as watercolors.

Then to give this one layer card extra dimension without any bulk, she added shadows to the letters. To begin, she colored with a Tombow Dual Brush Pen on the right-hand side of the letters.

Using a paintbrush and water, she blended the marker to give a softer appearance to the shadows.

And finally, she used the bullet nib of the marker to add dots on the shadows to coordinate with the playful style of the stamp.

That’s it… an easy-peasy one-layer birthday card ready for any summer soiree.
