Stampotique Autumn Range 2011








(stamps used above are all Stampotique. The NEW Dragonfly and NEW Dragonfly Quote, alongside Giant Shroom (if you have Giant Shroom you can see what a good size the Dragonfly is), Daisy,Daisy, Swirl Stalks, Splatter Long and Splatter Blob...all from the Jo Capper-Sandon range and Daniel's Hearts.)

Well hello!!

Long time no see!!!

Sorry for the absence, real life is dominating in a big way at the moment, so much so I've not had a chance, or the oooompf if I'm honest.

...And if you haven't missed my posts or its your first time here, ignore that first bit!!!
On now to the world of crafty stampiness we can all lose ourselves in when real life presents challenges, which I have really missed....

Back in June when life was quiet, I put together a few stamp designs for Carol and Jim at Stampotique Originals to compliment the other stamps in my range. These stamps are available to order from today along with a whole lot more from Daniel Torrente, Janet Klein and Maryse Carrier.

I have a few bits and pieces to show you that I've put together in the last few days....so if you have a moment, grab a cuppa, ....and a biscuit :0) there's lots to see if you haven't arrived via the blog hop which I'll tell you about in a sec... here we go...

First of all there is the journal page shown above. The page is 8" x 10" just so you can get a sense of scale.

In contrast to those photos, here are a couple of nice and simple quick cards both using stamps from the newly released images...

The first using the little bird. I've coloured him as being a rather scruffy sparrow, but he could also be a cute Robin at Christmas, just adjust your colours.



(Stamps above are NEW Fly and NEW Bird ( comes with tiny bird on the side, so its two stamps in one)



(Using the NEW Dragonfly saying and the NEW Dragonfly)

And finally, a little box made with new Stella, a stamp that is going to appear a lot on here over the next few months I imagine as I have so many plans for her.





(Stamps used for the two photos above are NEW Stella, NEW Everything Has Beauty (I just used the Beauty word ), French Text, Daisy,Daisy and Lavender Sprig.


As I mentioned earlier, I'm also the final port of call in the Stampotique Originals Blog Hop where if you follow the trail from here you can see a wide range of ideas from the fab crew that are the Stampotique DT using the new stamps.

If you arrived here from WILLY ANDERSON'S gorgeous blog then you are in the right finishing place.
If you just stumbled here by accident or clicked on my blog in shock that I'd actually posted something at last, then here is the link to the Stampotique Challege Blog, the starting point- so you can hop your way through and on your way visit Gez Butterworth, Jane Wetzel, Joanne Wardle, Karen (Kaz) Boughton, Kate Crane, Kim Howard, Maria Sabina Raita, Monique Verbeek, Nellie vanLeeuwen, Sue Roddis, Valerie Wilson,Vicki Garrett, Willy Anderson and finally me...Jo Capper-Sandon. PHEW!!!! Thats a lot of artwork!!!

Thanks very much for popping in! I hope you enjoy the new images. I have quite a few more samples to show with the new Stampotiques, but haven't had time to resize any more photos etc for this post. This is a teeny weenie introduction to the many ideas I have lined up with the new stamps, incorporating them with lots of other images from the Stampotique range. I'll set up a few blog posts to appear over the next few days if you fancy a nosey :0)

And if you would like to see ALL the new stamp images in this new release from all the designers then these can be found here.

Take care x Jo
