Product Showcase: Darcie's Part II & a give-away!








{Reported by Ashley Harris}

Alright so I am sure your appetite was whetted on Monday when I first introduced you to Darcie's yes? Good. It gets even better. Today I will be focusing on their stamps and their patterned paper. So let's get on it, shall we?

Their patterned paper is great for many reasons. Firstly they have fabulous colors and patterns that are easily mixed and matched together. They also give you the option to have regular text weight or cardstock weight! NICE HUH! They are also available in 8.5x11 and 12x12. FABULOUS!

Alright, now on to the stamps. I can't tell you enough how these stamps just blow me away. They have unmounted rubber cling stamps, mounted rubber stamps and clear polymer stamps available. With the unmounted rubber stamps you get the most bang for your buck. You get every image in that set. Darcie's offers the polymer stamps in the same line but you don't get as many images and it is less expensive as well. Okay fine. What if you only like one image in the set? You are in luck! They also have single images in rubber wood mounted stamps. So WA HOO!

Alright the digs:


What I liked:

1. The image are amazingly detailed.
2. They are mushy enough that you get an even image (make sense?).
3. Love that they have such a variety of options.


What I didn't like:

1. Honestly, nothing. Not being sugary or anything, it's just the truth.

What I made:

I first saw Darcie's stamps at a convention a few years ago and I fell in love with them. Honestly, I'm surprised I never see them in any magazines or on blogs. They're so cute and versatile. Plus, they have a nice selection of stamps that are appropriate for men's cards and layouts. And you're right, the detail in their stamps is excellent!

Some great fonts on the stamp,thank for the reviews. EJ

Heather in AZ said...

I spent some time on their website and one thing that really stood out to me is that this company doesn't seem to be focused solely on hot trends. They do have some super cute trendy stuff but they are LOADED with basic supplies and really solid designs that do not looked dated or like the designer is trying to hard to grab the coattails of some other company.

I was impressed with the variety they offer from super beyond cute to modern funky stuff. I'm also happy that somebody is still making things that real scrappers and crafters want not just what they want to sell us.
