Stamping on Tiles Tutorial, Feel Better Winner and 2012 Agenda

Hello Everyone,

I have an inspiring tutorial for stamping on tiles with a cool set of coasters by Darlene Pavlick and an art studio stamped tile by Vicki Chrisman who just did  a canvas!  We also have a winner for our Feel Better Giveaway. Congratulations to # 8 Jennifer Abbott-Scott and to all of you wonderful ladies for all your great cold remedies! It sounds like everyone had this rotten cold so the tips were perfect! If anyone knows Jennifer the winner, please pass on the news as there was no contact info.

Darlene used our SL15 Sweet Kids Stamp Set on these lovely coasters and you have to click on the photo to see the details. Dar actually stamped this set back in 2009 but I thought of them when DT Leader Vicki Chrisman sent me a tile she stamped and wanted to show you how versatile & creative this technique can be.

We want these Tutorials to be Fun & Do-able, so they are set up as a handy printable jpg file.  You just need to click on the page until it gets full size and save it to a file location you view and print from.

 Here is the Art Tile that Vicki stamped with our Art Studio Set  by simply using Brown StazOn Ink if you click on the above link you can see her other 3 background samples &  OVER 500 SAMPLES Added  to Our Online Store this week!

Many items, such as our Clear Art Stamp Sets now have between 4 to 6 samples. Our website needs to undergo some renovations so our Online Store and our  Blog will fill in

The variety of creative possibilities today is amazing and we've found we have a wide gap of readers from new crafter's & stampers to seasoned veteran's and  I have SO MANY GREAT IMAGES -

Please tell us what you want to discover, learn, buy, do, see in themes & styles the most! A $30.00 Gift Certificate will be awarded next week in the name of research!

As many of you know we live in Canada and it’s becoming more difficult to operate the business when most of our sales are shipped from the USA.  I thought we might have had a deal with a great company to take over so Cindy & I can focus on designing but sadly I found out today it didn’t happen – so I’m going to hire extra help and also continue to scout out the right company to take on our products. So that means we will continue with the NEW Clear Art Stamps we’ve been working on – which I'm really excited about!  Many designs will also be part of our new Digital Art Stamp Collection and there are currently some licensed products in the works as well.

In a nutshell - this means the SALE and FUN will continue and we thank you for your support & patience!
Wishing you joy & creativity

I'm sorry the business venture fell through but, you know what they say..."Everything happens for a reason." ;P

I LOVE the tiles! I'm going to have to try this. Thanks for the great directions! Beautiful samples!!

What I would like to see is some antique trains. Maybe some antique railway stations, travel luggage, train signs, etc. My dad was a big fan of trains but, sadly, he passed at the end of July/2011. I would love to create something in his memory and your stamps are just phenomenal! I'm sure they would just be perfect! Thanks for the chance to offer up our suggestions.Thank you for the awesome service you provide and have a great day!!

I still love all the vintage items you create!! I love the angels stamps sets,and I love the retro stamps and images you have too!
I still love anything with Banners, doily's, and nature images!!
Have you thought about submitting a list of your ideas on the blog, sending it with all order and asking if they would take the time to mark their favorites to help you narrow down some of your ideas? Just a thought?
Have a blessed weekend!!

Tiles is a fun idea~ I've stamped air-dry clay tiles and used them on cards and LOs. Themes? European motifs such as Union Jack, cobblestone street scene, telephone box, carriage with horse, outdoor cafe, vintage lamp post, cottage, country manor, public mail box, etc.

Love the tiles! I would love to see a set done with a vintage hot air balloon and airship theme. I would also love to see a Victorian jewelry stamp set!

i would love to see some paper dolls--children as well as adults with different clothing in different eras. stamps, chipboard, paper...whatever. i just love the vintage look. originals are so hard to find and if found are cost prohibitive.

I'm very interested in learning how to incorporate canvas and fabric in my projects. Also, could use some tutorials on digital scrapbooking. I'm an old fashioned gal, so I'm a bit intimidated by the CD's, even though I bought both of them.

Hi ladies, I don't think many people noticed this is a giveaway as I didn't say in the heading but I really appreciate your ideas!!! I have so many images, we could do ANY theme. I will post some samples this weekend so people can see the range and say what they like best.

Bonnie Williamson said...

I want to buy EVERYTHING in your store. I want to learn how to make the beautiful cards your DT makes. I love the vintage layered look and want to get better at it. Thanks for all your beautiful products.

Jan Hennings said...

love the CD 3! Wow :) I'd love to see new clear stamps and of course I love the Creative scraps. The clear stamps are all make my heart sing <3

Kathy in Idaho said...

Love the barber shop page and first hair cut page. The bird themed clear stamps are very nice, I see lots of ways they could be used.

Awesome! Using kids stamps to make cute tiles like that is such a sweet idea, and they turned out so great, too! I am so tempted to try those on my own.
