Today we are celebrating the new Stampotique release with a bloghop. If you haven't had a chance to see what's new, you can do that over on the Stampotique website here.
As with any of the releases, there is a variety of stamps from our artists for any stampers, scrapbookers and journalers out there. We always love to see what your favorites are so while you are hopping around, make sure to stop by and say "hi" on our blogs and come back here and tell us what some of your favorite images from this release were.
We'll be giving away a $30 gift certificate for stamps and a grab bag of stamps on two of the blogs-but you won't know which ones they are so stop by and visit them all. We will pick the winners on our first challenge in September.
Have fun hopping!
I have made an art journal. I love art journals and I love the new release so that was a match made in heaven....
The base of these pages is gesso and Dylusions Paints, applied with my fingers. I then stamped (with Archival Ink in orange and black) and stencilled (with white and black Dylusions paints) the background, giving the numbers some shading after the paint dried.
For the sentiment I used the word 'stinking' (stamped on a piece of pattern paper) which comes with a cute little skunk. The words 'so' and 'cute' are sticky letters.
Now this little guy is easy my most favourite stamps of this release and his name is Newton. I couldn't resist calling him cute, although not everyone will love him like I do....
I stamped him on white card stock and coloured him with Copic Markers, cut him out and glued him on the page after stamping him there as well. I used some washi tape here and there and drew some lines around the pages.
I have used the following stamps, all from the new release:
Symphony Scroll (faintly in the background)
Skunk with word (just the word)
Newton (Isn't he cute ?!)
You should have arrived from Sue Davies and if you didn't, you may want to start the blog hop from the beginning (SDC blog).
Here is the whole blogroll :
Corrie Herriman (that's me!)
Lastly there is some sad news from Kim:
"I've been the design team coordinator with Stampotique shortly after I begged and begged to be a part of the design team. I've thoroughly enjoyed my time on the team, the great friends I've made, the way I've grown as a stamper, and mostly being a part of the Stampotique family. This is my last blog hop as I turn the reigns over to my wonderful design team member in taking over for me, Claudine Criner. Claudine will do a fabulous job and while I may not be as involved with Stampotique as I have been in previous years, I will always remain a faithful stalker. Thank you to all of you out there who always took time to leave comments or drop me a note-I always appreciated getting them."
Thanks for stopping by today!
