    New Circus Paper Pad & Clear Stamps – and a CIRCUS Sale!

    Filed under Giveaways, Kristin Batsel, Rubber Stamps, Sale, Tutorials

    Oh, I have been waiting for this set to arrive! A colorful set of 6×6 circus papers, including some nice small designs for mini projects!

    40 pages printed on heavyweight cardstock (4 each of 10 double-sided sheets) with elegant pearlescent and spot-varnish effects (like those tickets on the far right of the photo: they have a bit of glossy shine).

    Plus the inner front and back covers are printed with extra ephemera elements.

    There’s also a related new clear stamp set (more on it below). And inspired by these new items (and circus artwork below): ALL Circus Items are on sale through tomorrow night (Monday night, June 15th)! More info on the sale is below, too!

     
    Tiny Paper Theater by Design Team Member Kristin Batsel!

    Oh! Do you remember this fab Tiny Paper Theater by Kristin? It seems a perfect time to revisit it, with those bright new circus papers!

    That project started with the (then new) Half Scale Punch & Judy Theatre.

    Here’s a bit from Kristin’s post as an introduction:
    I’m not sure I can tell you how much fun I had making this new tiny paper theater I got from Alpha Stamps last week. I was obsessed! If there’s one thing I love, it’s working tiny. Plus, all the bright colors on the accompanying collage sheet just stole my circus-loving heart.

    Wooden spindles and finials (colored with a gold Sharpie) add dimension. The top curtains and columns are raised as well. To achieve this, I used two copies of the same collage sheet, and layered some parts using foam glue dots.

    Kristin’s blog post also includes lots of photos with callouts, and tips about how she made her little theatre. Nice job, Kristin!!

    Here’s a link to all the supplies Kristin used, and a link to the original post with more photos!

     
    New Circus Fortune Teller Clear Stamp Set

    Sweet! Here’s the new related clear stamp set I mentioned above. Not *just* circus-themed either! I love that wagon and the palm reading hand!

    The overall sheet size is approx 4-1/2″ x 6″. Just the palm reading hand stamp is approx. 3″ tall.

    Plus a bonus: I’m including a Half Scale Punch & Judy Theatre from Kristin’s artwork! It’s a good size match for the petite patterns in the new paper pad.
