Welcome to our Leap Day Blog Hop ---- New release by Stampotique !

Hello everyone,


and welcome to the "Leap Day Blog Hop" to celebrate the wonderful new Stamps from Stampotique Originals
There are tons of new images from our favorite stamp designers and we are proud to welcome TWO (yes TWO) new stamp designers, Terri Richardson and also Karen Hayselden  
Both of these ladies are wonderful artists and we think you will really enjoy the new spin they both give to the Stampotique line.  Hopefully you will find some new stamps that you can't live without.
Join us on the blog hop for a first look at the new stamps and for some wonderful inspiration from our design team. 
This is also your chance to win some random goodies-we will be drawing TWO winners from TWO of the designer's blogs for a $30 gift certificate for the Stampotique online store
 You will need to hop all the way through and visit and leave comments on each designer's blog in order to win. 

You should have arrived from Sue Davies and if you didn't, you may want to start the blog hop from the beginning at the Stampotique Blog HERE   

Have fun hopping, we will be pulling the random winners of the Leap Day Blog Hop at the beginning of our next challenge on April 6th, 2016

Here's the full blog hop list ! 



Meet Wally ! Isn't he adorable... 
This postcard is slightly smaller than a normal postcard but that is because I used a piece of paper that  was coloured with pink and blue diluted acrylic paints. I had these left over on my desk and just brushed them onto a piece of card stock that I had lying around. 
I used a brayer and some white paint to tone it down a bit. 
Next I stamped the background with 2 new stamps and one old one. The bright white background stamp was heat embossed with white powder.  A list of all the stamps I used is at the bottom of this post. 
Wally was stamped on the panel and also on some white card stock. I coloured him with Copic markers, cut him out and adhered him onto the card. 
I used an older stamp for the sentiment. It still cracks me up and I thought it went really well with Wally. 

I used the following stamps:
Brick Road (New by France Papillon)
Mash up (New by France Papillon)
Wally (New by fabulous new designer Karen Haselden)

You will find all new images HERE



And this is Pedro. Aw, I love Pedro. This tag was cut from white card stock. I have dies but I never use them. I have one # 8 tag which I keep as an example and use to cut more. Every now and then I make a batch. 
Anyway this one was painted with Art Anthology Sorbet Paints. I scraped them on with a palet knife. I used yellow and green and a touch of turquoise. This paint has a little sparkle in it and looks very pretty. Next I stamped the background; I also stamped Pedro straight on the tag. I used Archival inks for this. Pedro was also stamped on white card stock with Memento Ink as I wanted to colour him with Copic Markers. I cut him out and glued him on top of himself, so to speak after putting down som washi tape to ground him on. I also put some of the same washi tape at the top of the tag. With a white gel pen I doodled in the numbers of the background stamp. I typed the sentiment, which came from my book of sentiments, collected from the internet. I adhered that too and doodled around it with a black pen. 

I used the following stamps:
Pedro (new by Daniel Torrente)
Upholstered (new by France Papillon)
Mash up (new by France Papillon) 

You'll fing all new images HERE



This is Florrie Doodle Dollie and I really love her. She is just too cute. This tag was cut from white card stock. I stamped Florrie on it and coloured her with a mixture of Copic markers and coloured pencils. After that was done I coloured the background with Gelato's and Coloured pencil. I struggled a bit as normally I would cut the stamped image out and glue it on the background. This is a one layer tag. Anyhow, once I was happy with the background I stamped it randomly and added some white paint around the edges. I took a quote from 'My fair lady' and typed it on my old typewriter and glued it on the tag. Lastly I added a ribbon. 

For this tag I used :
Florrie Doodle Dollie (new by Karen Haselden)
Brick Road (new by France Papillon)
Upholstered (new by France Papillon)
