Launched Monday 2nd May - New Stamps for Men and Outdoor Hobby lovers!

This fabulous card from Gretha shows how versatile these stamps are. Everyone struggles for cards for the men in their life and this is a fabulous set, but this card design shows how you can make them girlie too! Because the images themselves are so fun and cheery you can use them for all kinds of occasions and card styles from clean and simple, to monochrome and bright to really masculine to ever so pretty!

New Stamps for Men!

We have 6 new rubber stamps coming out in early May which will be perfect for Men's Cards and especially Father's Day. We know how everyone struggles to find decent images for male cards so we wanted to bring you something that wasn't too 'cute' but you will still enjoy making and giving cards with these images. We hope you like them! We have some great inspiration from Vicky and Jacqui here and there will be more sneak peeks of the coming days.

There are 3 cars in the range, as well as a pub, a caravan and a shed, so we hope we've covered a few options for the men in your life! They will be great for many occasions as well as Birthdays and Father's Day, including retirement, bon voyage/happy holidays, good luck, take it easy, get well soon and more. (Of course they're not just for men, women like many of these activities too!) Do let us know what you think and you could win a set of stamps from this new launch. Leave a comment below to be in the chance to win.
