Good day to you, my fabulous friends! Are you ready to explore some really fun and interesting stuff this week? We’ve been working behind the scenes for months to prepare an abundant collection of stamp designs — with subject matter designed to get your creative wheels spinning! What do I mean? Well, let me tell you a little bit about this collection:
Creative + Curious Collection
These stamps were directly inspired by my sense of wonder with the natural world, and from my belief that we are the artists of our own lives. Choosing happiness, choosing to explore, to continue learning, to truly live this amazing life we have been given by our Creator. From the thrill of discovering a tiny mushroom in the forest, to designing beautiful bouquets with an overflowing array of possibilities. From celebrating the birth of a baby, to sharing words that empower, love, and lift up.
We have flowers, oh, we have so many flowers, all drawn with care and passion by an artist and gardener who knows her way around a leaf. We are introducing our largest stamp canvas yet, 6" x 8", which holds a massive amount of images and sentiments. We'll have coordinating dies for several sets, too! If you wait until release day, May 20, to order — we'll have a special discount for you...
So, without further adieu.... let’s get this thing rolling!! We have so many designs to share with you, we are going to be doubling up on previews. Each day you’ll get to see TWO new clear stamp sets displayed through the eyes of our designers, the Bloom Brigade. DOUBLE TROUBLE UP IN HERE.
First up... inspired by the name of this very company. and a flower I’ve been longing to draw waaaaay up close. I think you can figure out what flower I’m talking about....
YOWZA!! Just try to stay seated when confronted with such a visual delight. I had to hop out of my chair for a second there. But that photo is actually kinda drab compared with what our designers have come up with for today... I know that sounds crazy and maybe even a little blasphemous, but have you looked at this:
Introducing Poppy XL
If you’re as entranced as I am by a mysterious, crepe-papery Poppy, and long to bring this drama to your craft table — this is the set for you! Poppy XL is a large-scale flower, nearly 4” across! When paired with the leaves, stem, and bud images, you can create your very own scene. Several of our designers are showing off this brilliant flower today, be sure to visit everyone’s blogs so you don’t miss a single. shining card.
Next up... and this one’s gonna send you straight into a tropical state of mind....
Introducing Big Sexy Leaves
This stamp set is pretty huge. SIX INCHES by SIX INCHES, my friends. Large enough to cover your entire card front with leaves to spare. I was inspired by vintage tropical wallpaper, which is really making a comeback lately, to design an all-over print of palm fronds and ferns, caladium and peace lily, philodendron and fanciful leaves of every stripe.
Stamped as a backdrop for florals or lettering, this one is unparalleled in its richness. You know I love to pack in every detail, and you’re getting a lot in Big Sexy Leaves. Come see what the Bloomies have made, you’ll get the idea of what is possible...
Enjoy the tour, my dear ones, and be sure to come back tomorrow. I will be announcing a MASSIVE GIVEAWAY, you’ll for sure want to know the details. Take it away, Bloom Brigade!
