Stampotique New Release Blog Hop!

If you are a fan of our Facebook page you may have already gotten a sneak peek of some of the new images we are excited to be releasing today.  We hope you will join us for the blog hop to see a variety of those images.

There are lots of new images from our favorite stamp designers and we are proud to welcome one of our newest stamp designers, Magda Polakow. You have seen tons of her fabulous creations as part of Stampotique's design team.  We think you will find a few stamps that you must have!

Join us through the blog hop for your chance to win some random goodies – we will be randomly drawing two winners for a $30 gift certificate for Stampotique stamps at the Stampotique online store.  The new stamps should be available over there now.

Also, make sure you hop all the way through for an exciting announcement on our Stampotique Designers Blog for an additional chance to win some goodies and some additional recognition as an artist.

You should have arrived to my blog from Kay Wallace's blog, if you did not arrive from there you may want to start the hop at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog.   

When you are finished visiting my blog you will want to hop on over to Coby vanWillingenburg's blog, where you're sure to see something fabulous.

Here's my card, which represents my future. It features the kitties from Kitty Squad (#4041Q) and Verdette (#9260).



 Kitty Squad (#4041Q) was stamped several times using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Verdette (#9260) was also stamped the same ink. All images were colored with Copic markers and fussy-cut. 

The patterned paper is from the Miss Caroline 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye. The Grand Madison Window die is from Poppy Stamps. The bird die is from Memory Box. I don't recall who made the branch die. Bad me. 

I was going to use the sentiment "You say Cat Lady like it's a bad thing." Sadly, including thirteen cats in a scene took more room than I thought, so I went with Plan B and used my trusty label maker.

Here's my second card that features Happy, Happy, Happy (#6175T).
 
Happy, Happy, Happy (#6175T) was stamped onto a sheet of ledger patterned paper from an old 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye. Surprisingly, it was colored with Copic markers. The balance of the patterned papers are from The Life of the Party 6x6 pad by Basic Grey. All edges were sponged with Walnut Stain Distress ink!

Now that you've seen my two cards, thanks for visiting, and  hop on over to Coby vanWillingenburg's blog!
  
Have fun hopping, we will be pulling the random winners of the blog at our next challenge on April 23, 2014.
