Fall/Winter 2021 New Release – Reveal Week – Day 1 (GIVEAWAY POST)

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to our Fall/Winter 2021 Reveal Week Day 1 and THIS is also our GIVEAWAY Post! Our New Release can now be Pre-Ordered at www.ppstamps.com! YAYYY!!!!! Don’t forget about our FREE SHIPPING deal for purchases over 65CAD+ (within Canada) / or 78USD+ (across the United States).

Visit our blog this week (12 Oct to 16 Oct) for some fun and awesome projects from our talented Creative Team and myself. Most importantly, continue reading for a chance to win some prizes! Our new release includes 5 new stamp sets & coordinating dies, 3 new stand-alone dies (one of which is our very first layered die set which I’m very excited about!), 5 new circular Stencils 360°TM, 3 new 6×6 stencils and an amazing collection of colored cardstocks! We will be focusing on some of those products this week, and then in early November (2 Nov to 6 Nov) we will have another Inspiration Week where we will continue to showcase other products from this release (with more Giveaways)!

Now let’s jump right in! Today is our showcase of the Legend Of The Koi stamp set & coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts; and our first set of Layered Dies, the Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies!

Our Creative Team has made the most amazing samples! We also have new videos coming up this week over on our YouTube Channel. Be sure to check them out later in the week to get more inspirations!

First up we have Stefanie’s creation featuring the Legend Of The Koi stamp set.

This layering stamp set is so much fun to play with. Stefanie chose different layers from this stamp set to create these two gorgeous koi fish. I love her watercolor background which compliments the fish beautifully.

I am loving the gold heat embossed sentiment as well! The details on these koi are just stunning!

Next up is Julie’s creation!

She used the new Handcrafted Porcelain stencil to create this gorgeous background. I love the splash of paint for the added movement. Her koi are super sharp and eye catching!

The white heat embossed sentiment on black cardstock finishes the card perfectly.

There are just so many different combinations you can use to stamp out the koi. I thought I’d showcase four of them by using a slimline card!

For my background I used the Slimline Oriental Cover die. I wanted some shimmer on the background so I decided to do a shaker card.

This is a no-bulk shaker, which means I did not use any foam tape for my shaker pocket but instead I only used some double-sided adhesive. This way, there is just enough movement but not too much that it would be too distracting.

I used Versafine Onyx Black to stamp out the outlines of my koi fish and clear heat embossed them to get a shiny finish.

Our next showcase is the Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies. I am in love with this Layered die set because this is so versatile and gives gorgeous results! You can simply use the Set 1 cover dies to create an exquisite look of a colorful layered butterfly emerging from a dotted sunburst background; or use Set 2 alone for a beautifully layered butterfly with intricate details.  You can even combine the two sets for the extra dimension! 

First we have Candice’s creation. Even though she did not used all of the layers for this card, you can already see the beautiful details that this die set gives!

I love the white on white background. The Sentiment on this card is from the Enchanting Paris stamp set.

Finally, we have here my A2 size card. Using ALL seven dies from this set I die cut all the pieces using Navy Blazer for layer 1 (the very bottom layer), and Grape Macaron for layer 3, and Lime Punch for layer 4 (the very top layer). In each respective layer, I adhered Set 2 on top of Set 1, to create this extra depth to my card. I then adhered all layers together starting with layer 1 on the bottom, working my way up to layer 4 at the top.

I blended Twisted Citron, Salvaged Patina, and Cracked Pistachio on my note card and adhered my layered die cuts onto my note card. I also added a a white heat embossed sentiment from our Heartfelt Note stamp set on to the matching Navy Blazer cardstock.

Finally I added some mixed sized and colors gems to give it the extra sparkle.

For my next card, I used the stand-alone butterfly dies from Layer 1 and Layer 4 to create this inlaid butterfly. This is a fun way to make full use of this die set.

I used the new Handmade Porcelain Stencil for my background, and I stamped out Heartfelt thanks from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set. I mixed and match some glitter cardstock with the Lime Punch cardstock for this technique. For the outline of the butterfly I used the deep Navy Blazer cardstock which I thought really gives the butterfly a sharp defined look.

Spring 2021 New Release – Reveal & Inspirational Chapter – Day 1 (GIVEAWAY POST)

Spring 2021 New Release Schedule

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to our Spring 2021 New Release Reveal & Inspirational Chapter! Today is Day 1 and THIS is also our GIVEAWAY Post! Our new Spring Release can now be Pre-Ordered at www.ppstamps.com! YAYYY!!!!! You will be eligible to receive a FREE GIFT with purchase of 80CAD+ (≈ 65USD+). This key chain is super adorable and features one of our favourite characters from the Rabbit Café stamp set! So take advantage of this awesome deal while supplies last!

Visit our blog this week (22 Mar to 27 Mar) for some fun and awesome projects from our talented Creative Team and myself. Most importantly, continue reading for a chance to win some prizes! Starting today we will be showcasing our 5 new stamp sets & coordinating dies, 6 new stand-alone dies, 2 stand-alone dies + stencil sets, and our new collection of cardstocks!

Now let’s jump right in! Today is our showcase of Bond With Nature Canada stamp set & coordinating dies, Mysterious Egypt stamp set & coordinating dies, and our 2 in 1 stand-alone dies + stencil sets, Mountains Landscape Scene Builder and Desert Landscape Scene Builder!

Our Creative Team has made the most amazing samples! We also have new videos near the end of this post and over on our YouTube Channel. Be sure to watch them to get more inspirations on these sets!

Each of the new stamp sets in this release is themed to a unique destination “Around the World”! Ashley created a fun scene with our Bond With Nature Canada stamp set & coordinating dies. Her card was assembled on a mini-slimline background measuring 3.5 x 6″. The background was ink-blended with Distress Oxide inks and I love the sparkling splatters that were added to all the layers. Camping is one of the outdoor activities that Canadian loves and there are so many adorable images you can choose from this set to create a fun camping scene! Ashley‘s scene is so adorable, what a fun way to wish someone Happy Birthday!

How adorable is Stephanie’s happy scene! I love how she added the marshmallows on sticks on both the characters! Looks like they are having such a great time! The mountain & landscapes were created using the die cuts from the Mountain Landscape Scene Builder set.

Mountain Landscape Scene Builder Set – Die Cuts

I love the addition of the little beaver (one of the most iconic animals of Canada!) and the punny sentiment is just so much fun!

The Mountain Landscape Scene Builder set also comes with this large stencil that will help you create beautiful landscape details such as grassy hill highlights, snowy hill tops, or even rocky mountains!

Mountain Landscape Scene Builder Set – Stencil

Stay tuned for our new video which will be released a little later this week!

Candice created a gorgeous scene using the Mysterious Egypt stamp set! All of her images were colored using Copic Markesr with the additional of some gold Gelly Roll accents, and die-cut using the coordinating dies. She made a mini-slimline measuring 6 3/8 x 3 5/8″. The front dotted borders panel was die-cut using one of the rectangle dies from the Cinematic Shadow Box Stand Alone Die which will be showcased later this week. I love how she stamped out the pyramid images with brown ink which really goes well with her blended hilly slopes background. Before adhering her card onto the card base, she ran a bronze paint pen around the edges, which is really cool as it adds some extra shine that matches the gold on the mini characters’ outfits!

Allison’s card is super cool! She used several different blue shades of Ranger alcohol ink on yupo paper, along with some gold mixative. She also pressed gold foil into the alcohol ink piece when it was almost dry so that it would stick to some of the spots that were still wet. I really love how she stamped the camel with versamark ink onto gold card stock and then heat embossed with white powder! The combination of gold cardstock and white power create such a sharp look! And I love the added touch of gemstones! I also love how she placed her other gold heat embossed images diagonally with partial die-cutting!

Finally, we have here my card. I made this slimline pull tab interactive card using the Mysterious Egypt stamp set and the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab stand-alone dies which will be showcased that later this week. Check out my video below or on our YouTube channel to see how I created the desert landscape and the three dimensional sand dunes background using the Desert Scene Builder Dies + Stencil (2 in 1) set! This new set gives you the tools for making beautiful and unique landscapes, especially on slimline cards!
