Whimsical Dylusional Fun!

The new supercallafragalisticexpialladoshus sets of rubber stamps designed by the one and only Dyan Reaveley, are sure to be a constant source of ideas, inspiration and excuse to stamp, create and colour!

What one word would you use to describe Dyan's latest designs?

Interrupting this Dylusional blog post with an announcement for Tim Holtz Stamps ... New Stamps! Such a surprise. They all look beautiful and amazing, so versatile too! Delivery is destined to be early August, between the 1st and 10th :)

Dyan Reaveley' Dylusions News ...

Stevie Baby, Funny Bunny and the Gang ... inStore and itching to be stamped!

What is not to love about this wonderful new series of designs (frogs in flowers, adorable cats, trendsetter bunny and spare body, gorgeous chook portrait, paper dolls, more awesome designs, beautiful leaves, and did I say frogs?) and extra long stamping block for all those extra long leafy stamps. You can never have too many handy tools! These will surely love hopping about in our stash of favourite arty treasures.

Fun and whimsical designs for every occasion include a beautiful big toadstool fairy or gnome home with stripy ring walls, a tiny mushroom attic, round window, wooden door and toady garden, plus gnomes tall and short, twirly Dylusional trees (grass, tendrils, seaweed, flower stalks), more gnomes, adorable birds with a whole stack of fashion accessories they love to wear (and share with gnomes, cats, dogs, frogs, chooks, anyone! lol) and more gnomes!

These stamps will be easy enough to fussy cut around, especially when using Tim's ergonomic and arthritic hands friendly) Mini Recoil Scissors or the 5" Micro Serrated Scissors with super sharp snips.

Dyan has a new collaboration with Spellbinders who have made matching die cutting sets for the gnomes, robins and toadstools. Simon Says Stamp has been making heaps of dies for Tim's old stamp sets too, there seems to be a trend happening! Personally, I like scissors, they're faster and easier to get things done.
