New SP Stamps

NEW STAMPS ALERT!!  It's that time of the month again and I am so excited to bring you a larger stamp release this month. We've got lots to see so let's get started!!

It is my pleasure to introduce to you the new SP and Company stamps for February!!!!

Journal This - A Vintage October Signature Stamp set
This is a set is I am SUPER EXCITED to tell you about! The lovely and fearless SP design team leader, Chrissie Tobas, is the creative mastermind behind this stamp set. She is debuting her signature line of stamps for SP with this little beauty. This journaling basics stamp set is perfect for vintagey cards, scrapbook layouts, tags, making your own journaling tags/cards, you name it! There are numbers, days of the week, months, extra journaling bits, elements, a tab, oh my gosh, so much greatness! She will be adding even more wonderful stamp sets to her Vintage October Signature line so look forward to even more great things to come.

Easter Bunny Sentiments
This is actually two separate sentiments "Happy Easter" and "The Easter Bunny's on his way!" They could be used separately, or combined to make all those pretty Easter Bunny themed projects. These also fit in the Swirly Doo Valentine's swirly shape AND also in the Pure Happiness shape. I envision this little set being used for great little treat boxes and goody bags for children's Easter festivities.

Elle Elephant single stamp
This is Elle, the adorable little elephant! She is just a cute little figure to add to your projects. Her hand is out in case you would like to put an accessory in her hand (a heart?). She is just so adorable!!! She could easily be changed to a boy if need be (maybe try an omitting technique and remove the bow on her tail, or just color that bow blue!).

Lucky Mini stamp set
This little mini stamp set is perfect for, you guessed it, St. Patty's Day!! The cute little 4-leaf clover lends itself to paper piecing or any coloring techniques. And the sentiment is fun and decorative. I am sure you are going to see this mini stamp set used in a number of creative and inventive ways by the design team. We've got great plans for this little set!

Sympathy & Care
This stamp set is the stamp set in the February SP Monthly Kit. It is a heartfelt sympathy set called Sympathy & Care. It isn't your average sympathy stamp set, in that is has uplifting sentiments in it, rather than just the "so sorry for your loss" type sentiments that focus solely on the sadness. This set is about celebrating our loved ones. I think this is an absolute must have because unfortunately, there is sadness in life, and we need to lift up our loved ones. This set is one I am most proud of.  Although this is a sympathy related stamp set, the sentiment on the bottom could be used for anything "Celebrate the beautiful moments". Also, if you omit the last line of the first sentiment, it can be an everyday sentiment also "Wishing you rainbows and sunshine".

Spring Bunny single stamp
This is our more realistic image from this month's lined images. The spring bunny could be used for all your spring themed projects. This cute little thing could be combined with the new Easter Bunny Sentiments above, or be used for just because or nature cards. This little cutie is a really fun one to color too!

Diamond Background
This is one of our super long panel background stamps. This patterned stamp is long enough to stretch over the entire width of a standard card base (5.5inches). This is not one of our repeatable background stamps, but could easily be converted into one (stay tuned for a special tutorial on how to convert non-repeating backgrounds to repeating backgrounds!).

The next two stamp sets were released a bit early as a mid-month release, but I wanted to formally introduce them today along with the rest of our beautiful stamps!
Pure Happiness
Pure Happiness is THIS stamp set!! For real, this set is just the funnest thing. It is my pleasure to introduce you to the Pure Happiness stamp set! This set just puts a smile on your face, doesn't it? This is one of our full 4X6 stamp sets.
In case you can't read them on the stamp swatch here is the full list of pure happiness sentiments:
  • Pure happiness is great friends & chocolate.
  • Pure happiness is singing in the rain.
  • Pure happiness is rainbows and sunshine.
  • Pure happiness is chocolate.
  • Pure happiness is hot cocoa.
  • Pure happiness is April showers.
  • Pure happiness is having you in my life.
  • Pure happiness is spending time with old friends.
  • Pure happiness is dancing like no one's watching (if you will notice, on the stamp swatch it doesn't have the apostrophe in the "one's", but the actual stamp set DOES have the apostrophe, the swatch was just made first before the set was finalized).
  • Pure happiness is laughing so hard your face hurts.
  • Pure happiness is taking time to enjoy the little things.
  • Pure happiness is having you for a friend.
Now that is 12 wonderful and happy sentiments, or you could finish the saying on your own. Seriously endless possibilities!!

Turtle-y Awesome mini stamp set
This adorable little turtle can say cute little turtle-y phrases for many different occasions. SO CUTE! This set measures approx. 4X4inches, so it is one of our mini stamp sets. I start cracking up every time I read these adorable sentiments (and my hubby even loves them, that is truly saying something!). These are sure to put a smile on the face of a person receiving this little guy on a card project!
