I'm finally back with some preview drafts of Stamp Sets and CD # 3 Creating with Vintage Typography, plus a $30.00 giveaway for your opinion and feedback. I mentioned it briefly in my last post and was asked to post any specifics, so I will below and add the other previous entries to this draw and announce a winner this Friday, Jan 19/12.
We will continue to create some NEW CLEAR ART STAMP SETS while we create our Digital Art Stamp line and find a company to licence our products. What do you think of this preview of our Sing for Joy Clear Art Stamp Set? It includes 20 separate stamps with 2 branches of birds, extra flower blossom & leaf. This is still a draft so time to make changes if you see anything. Click on to see larger
I also have a large collection of owls in a mix of adorable to artistic - am I too late? Have we missed the owl train or are they still popular? Do you like owls and if so what style?
I've been collecting old patriotic images for awhile and when I bought the cute Uncle Sam Soup Kid below he inspired this fun patriotic set but now that it's done I think my favorite is the lady we added who can hold the flag or sparkler. This set, SL47 American Beauty will include 20 separate stamps.
See how much better the same set looks above than the first draft below? We tossed out Uncle Sam and the screaming chicken and the vintage lettering added above makes it way cooler. I just wish I could find Vintage Canadiana so we could do a set for Canada.I have a thing for little dressed animals but please tell me if you like these types of images? I have every animal possible from frogs, elephants, dogs to mice.
Or do you like simpler styles like Mr & Mrs Kitty below? I have a bunch of cute animals in this style below - except I always get Cindy to fix the weird eyes and we change as many things as possible to make everything better, unique and ours.
Here are some images that were slated to go on a Forest Fairy set but I just got 2 adorable houses in a shoe and a teapot shape, plus an old antique book with pixies & elf's, so these will now be split into 2 sets.
How about a Garden Fresh stamp set with vegetables, garden tools, and old shed or garden gate? Also, how about a canning a preserving set with jam labels and fruit? What artwork do you like better, detailed etchings, or line art like these whimsical fruits with faces - or both?
What is you favorite theme and what would you like to see us create - Clear Stamps, Digital Stamps & projects on CD's, printed Color Scraps ??
Here's some Barber Shop papers that are going on a Men's Theme CD. I love the way these papers turned out and now we just need t5o add a set of moustaches!
I decorated these bottles with our French Label Stickers years ago and recently found a CD with 100's of photos of older samples and a bunch of really great ones. I've added over 600 samples to our Shopatron Store and have more to add using Stickers and Vintage Cuts and old Alpha Booklets (see below)
Plus there were samples featured in our Get Creative and Get Round Booklet I will be adding. This album below was from the dollar store and Vicki added alpha letters and the date no.s from our Boys Alphabet Booklet on SALE now for $1.95
Lastly, I want to share a link to DT Member Julie, Campbell and her inspiring life quest to learn more about her heritage and family. Here stories are always so inspiring and you can read them HEREhttp://avintagechic.blogspot.com/2012/01/just-little-time.html
