Happy Monday, my friend! It’s a stat holiday here in Canada; Victoria Day, for Queen Victoria’s birthday. However you’re spending your day, I hope it’s a good one! Since it’s now mid-month, I thought I’d share with you the May new releases and products from some of my favourite suppliers.
JOGGLES – NEW IN STOCK
I’m one of the few people I know what actually thinks real mice are cute! If you’re not in that category, maybe you prefer the adorable House Mouse stamps from Stampendous? These adorable designs are guaranteed to make you smile -and we can always use a smile, right? Check out these 17 designs, now available HERE. Here’s a peek below, of some of the stamps available.
I told you they were cute! And, they won’t chew through your wires, or eat from your pantry!
Maybe you prefer sparkly, over cute? Then you’ll love the new Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes Kits! The new Kits are all inclusive, and available in 6 gorgeous colours.
To see how easy these are to use, check out this video, below.
How fun is that?! I love the idea of using the Glided Flakes through stencils, and on with fine details stamps. I can see getting carried away, and gilding everything! CLICK HERE to see all the colours in these new kits. You can also purchase just the jars of flakes themselves, in other colours, HERE.
ALTENEW – FULL OF WHIMSY
This month’s new release from Altenew is called Full of Whimsy. It’s soft, playful, friendly – just what we need right now, for our jangled nerves! You’ll love the flowers, wreaths, and brushstroke alpha set. Here’s a look at all of the stamps included in the release. Be sure to check out these & the extras, HERE.
I think if I had to pick a favourite, it would be the Whimsical Flowers & Quotes set (rectangle floral frame), followed by the Blossom Wreath set. They would both be versatile for any occasion, or season -just change up your ink colours!
CONCORD & 9TH – #C9SAYITSIMPLY
This moth’s release from Concord & 9th is, in their words ” focuses on helping you create multiple cards quickly (but beautifully, of course) so you can #c9sayitsimply to all those helpers who have impacted your life in big and small ways.” The main stamp & die sets are called, appropriately, Simply Said. The neat thing is that the dies actually cut around the sentiments, so you can easily layer them onto your backgrounds! Have a look.
These are the perfect sentiments to send to those people you’ve had to ‘physically distance’ yourself from, during this pandemic. Even for those you don’t know, like nurses, grocery clerks, etc., if you’re into doing random acts of kindness 🙂 Check out this release, plus some awesome background stamps they have on sale, HERE.
