New Stamp Releases and Other Things....


If you are here from the BLOG HOP please click HERE to visit my blog hop post and enter my giveaway!

I have 5 new stamps in the shop today, well actually I added them a couple of days ago since I knew today would be a busy one and they have already been sold a few times so this is probably already old news to some of you! lol  BUT what you likely haven't seen yet is all of the beautiful samples created by my awesome design team!

2 of today's new releases are actually old stamps that I have redrawn to make new again....

the stunning card above was created by Bettina using IMG#22 Chloe which as you can tell by the number is one of the first few stamps I ever created.   I like to think that with every drawing I do, I get a little bit better at it.   So as time passes things will catch my eye in the older stamps and I feel an urge to redraw them lol

The timing couldn't have been more perfect with Miss Chloe and her sweet heart shaped balloon as Valentines Day is just around the corner.   If you already own the original version of this stamp it won't be difficult to spot the changes, but for those that don't, I have redrawn her head completely, touched up her clothing and the balloon just a little and added a brand new "sweetheart" sentiment to go with it as you can see in the stunning card above created by Tracey.

This adorable card above was created by Granne using Chloe and IMG#17 Patsy which is the other even older stamp that I redrew. 

With Patsy I redrew her head completely and cleaned up the lines everywhere else.  With both Chloe and Patsy you get 1 smiling girly and 1 pouting girly in each set.

This next breathtaking card was created Naz using my brand new stamp Ziggy IMG#285

I chose to name her Ziggy since I was inspired to create her the day David Bowie died.   To say I was devastated by the news would be understatement, but I picked myself up & poured all of that emotion into my artwork.   I created 2 sketches that day, one of them became this stamp which as previously mentioned I titled ZIGGY and the other became a beautiful watercolor painting of a fairy that I titled STARDUST.  

This stunning card above was created by Bettina and the next 2 beautifully colorful samples below were created by Delores...

Below you can see this super fun card created by Jenn she used my brand new image titled Mary-Jane IMG#286

I know this image isn't for everyone but those that do enjoy it I bet will really appreciate it lol  I actually didn't set out to create a new stamp with this one.   What happened was,  I painted up IMG#279 Long Day and decided to share it in 1 of my favorite facebook groups 420 Vegans as I figured the members there might really appreciate it, and it turns out they did, a lot!  So the group admin offered for me to use a piece of my artwork for their banner.   I looked at the banner they already had, which was AWESOME and decided if I was to replace it with my artwork it would have to be something brand new and just as awesome, so I got out my Twinkling H2O watercolors and got busy...

I painted the image above for the 420 Vegans banner and after realized that there may be people out there who would like to have this pot smoking girly as a stamp and so thats how Mary-Jane IMG#286 came to be!

The 5th and last new release I have to share with you today is another Seal Fundraiser Stamp Set 100% of the funds from the sale of this stamp set goes to charity and we are celebrating all month long with a Blog Hop, stop by and join in the fun, we have LOTS of prizes including an original watercolor painting, a giclee print and lots and lots of digital downloads to win! 

The beautiful card above was created by my design team member Andrea using the new Seal Fundraiser Stamp Set.

This new set comes with an extra large jpeg coloring page and a zip file containing all of the images separated into their own png files with transparent backgrounds so they can be easily moved around the page or used individually as seen in some of the samples below....
