Stampotique New Release Blog Hop Yippee!!!

Hi Folks,
Today I'm so pleased to be sharing some of the new release stamps from Stampotique, we are having a blog hop
Here is a list of all our blogs

You should have arrived here from Nellie Van Leeuwen and if you didn't, you may want to start the blog hop from the beginning Stampotique Designer's Blog
All the new stamps can be found HERE
Well done if you've made it this far, there are quite a lot of us!!

I am sharing a Christmas card for my first offering, why not? LOL
This one's rather cryptic but I see where she is coming from :D

So, I made a box, for a little girl. This was good fun, all the sides have been covered with totally pink girly stuff LOL

 The ends have Roc's Feline
And finally a totally CAS card
 I used stamps by Magda Polakow, Roc Nicholas  Jo Capper-Sandon and Karen Hayseldon
Alphabitties by Jill Penny and Daniel Torrente
Thank you for joining me and good luck in the draw, a $30 gift certificate to the online store and a grab bag of stamps to two random winners who have visited the blogs :D Gay x

We've gone all beachy

Hello and welcome, the challenge at Stampotique this week is a theme,
The Beach is always such a relaxing place to be whether it's sun or just fun in the sand and surf, let's just see your best beach themed projects this week
I made two cards this time
Mela loves her new hat it keeps the sun out of her eyes
 This card below is done on Yupo paper, a great base for alcohol inks, they move over the surface in a very interesting manner. So for my beach and the sea, floating the ink over the paper with cut and dry sponge worked well, leaving a shiny sea. These two are fighting over the towel
Stamps I used
Hat Cube
Now I would love to see what you can come up with, good luck and have fun

We're still partying

Hi folks, Over at the Stampotique blog there is still a party going on and I made another card,
I added a few more heads, stamped onto paper, as a bunchof balloons I think it balances the group better,

This time Twinkie has a change of head, the balloon heads are pretty suspicious and wonder what is going on, check out their eyes, LOL they don't know which way to look !!
I used Bird Lady's head By Roc Nicholas
Thanks for stopping by to look, Hugs Gay x

Sad day,

I am struggling to cope on any level today. To think that our world has come to this, madness and hate can fuel such destructive force. To the people caught up in the atrocity in Nice my heart goes out to you.
Why can't people just be kind? We all belong to the human race and need to look out for each other. Words escape me!

Can't say how pleased I am , totally stoked actually! On two occasions I have guest designed for Stampotique but have not been able to do more. Now I can devote more time and it's fantastic to be working with the wonderful talented team and these little Stampotique beauties, struggling to grasp that I'm actually I'm on the team Yippeee!! :D
Here are a few of my Stampotique makes from recent posts
As you can see I am a little obsessed with Newton, he's a lovely boy LOL

 As is Topher :D
A very flowery number from April, such adaptable stamps these Stampotique stamps, look where this came from

A very sweet Agatha and a  pretty and adaptable flower stamp!

Black and white!

Hi Folks, Hope you've had a great week :D 
I've been very busy  and have made an offering for Stampotique

This week at Stampotique Nellie van Leeuwin is our hostess and she is challenging us to "Black and White Only" here is what Nellie says about this challenge:

"I challenge you to use only black and white in your project this week"
 I altered a giant wooden peg,

I had so much fun with this and absolutely loved the constraint of just Black and White especially on this substrate. All stamps from Stampotique,
I measured the stripes and coloured them with FB Castell Pitt pens, a recent purchase, niiice for drawing :D The circle background is a multi circle stencil, I got from Joggles and I can see it's going to be very handy.
Thank you for stopping by to see what I've been up to :D Hugs Gay xx
