Today is the day! At last I can reveal all of my new stamps.
As you know, last summer I released my very first stamp plates with PaperArtsy. That was back in August 2013, hearts,clocks and cogs featured heavily. It was such an exciting time for me, and I was thrilled to be asked to add a further 2 plates for Christmas 2013. These too had Steampunk elements. The Christmas stamps were released when I visited PaperArtsy HQ at the end of October last year. That same day Leandra asked me to start putting together some new designs for a spring release.
It is such a crazy process, I had just finished drawing Christmas stamps, it wasn't actually Christmas yet at that point, and I was already moving into Spring ...it is hard to wrap your head around designing flowers when there are Christmas songs playing on the radio.
So I sketched and sketched and sketched, filling up as many A4 pages as I could, then I selected my favourite elements and developed those further. After a couple of redraws we had the final selections...and here they are..
there are four A5 collections
and there are 8 minis...
Here are a few samples that I have made so far. I hope you love them as much as I do. Let me know what you think, do you want more of the same? what would YOU like to see as part of my collection?
For more amazing samples pop over to the PaperArtsy blog and see what some of our other designers have made with my stamps. I am so pleased, they made some great stuff. Thank you Alison Bomber. Gillian Simson, Carol Quance and Linda Cain
As I type this I am down at PA HQ prepping for the Stamperama show at Stevenage. I will be demoing there with Leandra. If you are coming to the show please pop by the stand and say hello.
Regarding availability: PaperArtsy will be shipping out to all their retailers from 20th Feb onwards, so keep an eye on your local craft store.
Next week, once I am back home I will blog the process photos and instructions for each of the samples above, so do watch out for that.
Thank you once again to Mark and Leandra for having faith in me and my designs and for bringing them to life.
