MAGICAL DRAGONS

Once upon a time there was a magical kingdom in a land far, far away, and it came to life in the CUTEST stamp set called Magical Dragons. The newest addition to our Birdie Brown line will enchant you with three large dragons, an absolutely sweet baby dragon, and a fair princess and brave knight in shining armor. Create charming scenes with the wee knight saving the pretty princess from the too-cute-for-words dragons, and add details to your scenes with the whimsical clouds provided or reimagine the clouds as puffs of flames coming from the dragons’ nostrils! You’ll find hours of creativity in your fair castle with this stamp set. And as the story goes — we all lived happily ever after! The coordinating Die-namics are open inside to allow you to stamp, then cut OR cut, then stamp. This feature keeps our Die-namics lightweight and allows for easy removal of the die cut from the die.

MONSTER LOVE

Make some monstrously fun cards with the Monster Love stamp set. This delightful 2 step stamp set features six little monsters that you can personalize with mouths, eyes, antennae, and other fun details! Simply stamp the solid bodies first, and then add the details. We make it easy to build your two step monsters because the stamp sheet provides indicators around the solid and detail stamps so that you know which stamps go with which. You’ll also love the punny sentiments in two playful fonts that are perfect for birthdays, love, and encouragement. These monsters are cute and bold (not scary!), and they will steal your heart! The coordinating Die-namics are open inside to allow you to stamp, then cut OR cut, then stamp. This feature keeps our Die-namics lightweight and allows for easy removal of the die cut from the die.

STITCHED TRIPLE PEEK-A-BOO WINDOWS

The Stitched Triple Peek-a-Boo Windows Die-namics allows you to create adorable scenes and fun windows to add character to your creations. The three windows are surrounded with stitch lines, and you can keep them hooked together or break them apart to use singly. This Die-namics coordinates well with the Monster Love stamp set, but it will work well with any of our delightful images.

MIRROR IMAGE

The Mirror Image stamp is a must have in your stash! With this one stamp, you can revolutionize your entire inventory of stamps. Ink up any stamp, stamp it on the mirror image stamp, and then stamp the mirror image on paper to create a reverse image. How magical is THAT? The Mirror Image stamp works best with a conditioned stamp. Watch this video for ideas of how to condition your stamps for the best results.

Wondering how you might use this handy little stamp? Barbara’s created a little step-by-step with some examples!

Have you ever wished an image was oriented in the opposite direction than it is? Often a project design would work better if this were the case and Mirror Image Stamp Set allows you to do just that.

1. For my first example, I ‘m going to use the cute hedgehog image from the Warm & Fuzzy Friends stamp set, watercolor paper, VersaMark, and White Detail Embossing Powder.

mirrorimagetute2

2. Using the MISTI, remove the black foam pad and place a piece of clear acetate in the corner with stamp mounted as if it was on a stamping block. Mount the Mirror Image stamp on the door so that it will cover the stamp.

mirrorimagetute3

3. Ink up the stamp with Versamark, close the door , and stamp onto the Mirror Image stamp. Do this gently; pushing firmly may move the door slightly, distorting the image. Repeat.

mirrorimagetute4

4. Working quickly, open door, remove acetate with the stamp, replace black foam pad, and place watercolor paper into MISTI in the same place. Close door and press down firmly-the image stamped on Mirror Image Stamp with Versamark will transfer to the paper. Repeat steps 3 & 4.

mirrorimagetute5

5. Heat emboss with white embossing powder. The image on the bottom is the mirror image and on the top is one stamped normally.

mirrorimagetute6

6. Here the images are watercolored to show more detail.

mirrorimagetute7

7. For my second example I’m going to stamp on Copic friendly paper with Versafine. Versafine works well because it stays wet long enough to apply heat embossing. I’m using my favorite little parrot from Polynesian Paradise.

mirrorimagetute8

8. Employing the same technique, remove the foam pad from the MISTI, ink up the image with Versafine (I’m using Onyx Black,) close the door, and lightly stamp the image onto the Mirror Image stamp. Repeat steps for complete coverage.

mirrorimagetute9

9. Here I’ve applied clear detail embossing powder…

PREMIUM DYE INK CUBES

Each set includes four cubes. These sets do not match the card kit sets. Each set will feature unique colors though so there won’t be any color overlap between sets.

With our August Release, we have 2 sets to share. Premium Dye Ink Cubes – Set 1 features Orange Fizz, Grape Jelly, Lemon Drop, and Limelight. Premium Dye Ink Cubes – Set 2 features Green-Eyed Monster, Cherry Crisp, Tangy Orange, and Milk Chocolate.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CENTERPIECES

The Happy Birthday Die-namics is a one piece die that cuts each letter of happy birthday separately as well as 5 long, thin stripes (in 3 lengths), 7 stars (in 2 sizes), 5 candles (with 5 corresponding flames) and 4 dots. Assemble the design as shown to create the illusion of a birthday cake or use the separately cut pieces in any configuration you can dream up. Taken all together, you’ll make a big impact, but the accents give this die endless possibilities. This design is also a perfect addition to gift bags and boxes for that personal, handmade touch to make the recipient’s birthday even more special!

POP-UP ELEMENTS DIE-NAMICS

The Pop-Up Elements Die-namics will give stability to popped up elements on the inside of your cards giving your recipients a fun surprise! Center the center fold line with the card base fold (or other folded card stock), and cut, leaving behind a platform on which to adhere stamped or die-cut elements. Simply reverse the fold of the die cut element, so that when the card is opened, the element(s) pop up.

CELEBRATE WITH CAKE

The Celebrate with Cake stamp set from Lisa Johnson Designs gives you the opportunity to create stunning tiers of birthday cake goodness without one cake decorating class! With this buildable stamp set, you’ll create incredible confectionary creations with ease. Mix and match the dot, stripe, and flourish layers or keep it consistent with one design. Go for lots of colors or keep it monochromatic (perhaps in white or cream) for a wedding card instead. The wide range of sentiments give you many options to say happy birthday, and small banners, a flower, leaves, candles, flames, and star allow you to accent to your heart’s delight. The best part of this stamp set? These delicious cakes are all calorie-free, so you can have your cake and eat it, too! The coordinating Die-namics are open inside to allow you to stamp, then cut OR cut, then stamp. This feature keeps our Die-namics lightweight and allows for easy removal of the die cut from the die.
