A Very Exciting Day In Rubber Land

If you are a fan of the Stampotique 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 designer, Magda Polakow, whom you have seen tons of her fabulous creations here as part of our design team.  We think you will find a few stamps that you can't live without.

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 hope 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 at my blog from Janet Klein, 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 Arwen McCullen.

Have fun hopping, we will be pulling the random winners of the blog at our next challenge on April 23, 2014.

















Sam Read (You are here!)






As a member of the Stampotique Design Team I have been able to have a play with some of the new images. I have included just a few samples today but keep an eye on my blog for lots of new creations made with the fab new images!!
 This cute little canvas is 10cm x 10cm and I've used one of artist Daniel's new stamps for the main image and added texture using modelling paste through a stencil/mask before painting. It was hard to resist blinging this one!!
 This kitty is from artist Kira's Kitty Squad stamp, I stamped and coloured shrink plastic and squished a bottle top. It's a cute fridge magnet now!!
I had great fun with this kitty so used her again for this ATC along with artist France's alpha stamps.

Kitty Squad stamp: HERE
Typewriter Alpha: HERE and
Cup of Fun Certainty: HERE
Keep going on the blog hop or you are going to miss something truly amazing including a wonderful opportunity for you at the end ;)
Wishing you a lovely day, Happy Hopping, Sam xxx
