Leap Day Hop with the Stampotique Design Team!

Today the Stampotique Design Team are holding a special Leap Day Blog Hop to showcase the wonderful new stamps from Stampotique OriginalsThere are tons of new images from our favorite stamp designers and Stampotique is proud to welcome TWO (yes TWO) new stamp designers, Terri Richardson and also Karen Hayselden to the fold.

Both of these ladies are wonderful artists and we think you will really enjoy the new spin they both give to the Stampotique line.  I know you will find some new stamps that you need now! 

This is also your chance to win some goodies! TWO winners will randomly be drawn from TWO of the designer's blogs. These lucky winners will win a $30 gift certificate for the Stampotique online store.  In order to have the chance to win, you will need to complete the blog hop; visit and leave a comment on each designer's blog.

You should have arrived here from Arwen McCullen' blog, where you saw some fabulous artwork.

Here's my card with Fruit Bat (Kira Nichols)!


Fruit Bat was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts)  and colored with Copic markers. 

Thin cardboard was die-cut with one of the Polaroid Frame dies (KaiserCraft). Green cardstock was die-cut with the Alphabet Uppercase die (Impression Obsession). The 4 was die-cut with a Skinni Mini Khaki die (QuicKutz). The letters were adhered to the Polaroid Frame, which was used to frameFruit Bat

Kraft cardstock was run through my Big Kick (Sizzix) inside the Whisper embossing folder (Craft Concepts). The edges of the card front were sponged with Gathered Twigs Distress ink (Ranger). The framed Fruit Bat image was adhered to the card front and Glossy Accents was added to his eyes (didn't hurt him a bit) to add dimension and shine.

Thanks for visiting today. Your next stop on the hop is Sue Davies' blog, where you will be treated to some amazing artwork!

Here's the Leap Day Hop roster!
