Creative + Curious: Day 2 - MASSIVE GIVEAWAY ANNOUNCEMENT


Hello there, friends! Thank you so much for your very lovely words about our first two stamp set peeks (click here if you want to check them out). I’m not going to mess around too long talking, because I want to hop right into the new clear stamps that we have to share with you today. The Bloom Brigade designers continue to take cardmaking to the next level — they aim to inspire you to create your very best work, and they show us that it is totally possible!! Let’s soak up the beauty.

REMEMBER:
If you order on release day, Sunday, May 20, — we’ll have a special discount for you!

---------------------------------------------------

We have TWO sets again today, and this first one might look a bit familiar. After getting loads of requests to bring the Rosé All Day digi out in clear, we’ve heard you and taken action! Get ready...


Introducing Artistic Bouquet

When I think about the kinds of things that make me smile, flowers and art supplies are at the very top of the list. So I combined them in bouquet that will stimulate your artistry and leave you with a beautiful final product! This illustration (originally introduced as digi Rosé All Day) encourages you to explore color complementary color combinations to bring out the beauty of the individual forms. From dabbing color in the dainty budded branches to revealing the veins in the Cyclamen leaves, you’ll feel like the true artist that you are as you bring this image to life. Set up on a larger canvas of 5 x 5", and with four all new sentiments, this set is a delight to work with.

And now.... how about some mushrooms?


Introducing Wild Mushrooms

This is a set unlike anything you’ve probably seen before, and that’s just the way I like it! Embrace our natural world and feel a connection to earthy wonders with Wild Mushrooms. This set is designed on the largest stamp canvas I’ve ever released, a 6 x 8"! That means you get 11 big stamps — each mushroom grouping can be the focal point on a card, although they also work together if you cluster 'em just so! Coordinating dies will be available, too. I took great inspiration from vintage mushroom identification charts, which seem to have been especially popular in Europe. Here are a few charming examples:



Notice how the mushrooms are shown in the environment in which they might be found in the wild. Some are in a meadow with grasses and daisies. Some are amongst decaying leaves on a forest floor. All of these clue help foragers determine what variety of mushroom they've come upon, and know whether or not they are edible. NEAT STUFF! Now... what does this have to do with stamping? Well goodness gracious, these mushrooms are a cute as a button! You can even make your own little identification charts. Look at what I made with this set.... 



And NOW let’s go see what the Bloom Brigade has made with BOTH of these sets. Seriously, be ready to squeal.



BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE — A MASSIVE GIVEAWAY!!

Loved getting to hug you in person.

Squeeee! The morels with the violets!! I just came back from Indiana and have loads of pictures of both... we were fortunate enough to find 46 Morels in one spot... the largest was 4". Oh, they were soooo yummy!!! and you captured them perfectly! Picking just one set as a favorite is too hard! I have three-way tie... Orchids Rock is the one I use the most - because they do!! (rock that is!) I'm waiting on Cup of Columbine to become a 'real' stamp... love Columbines... I've already told you my aunt has quite a delightful variety of them. And now, the Wild Mushrooms, especially the Morels, because they're my favorite treat.
