New Stampotique Artist!!

Exciting news- there's a new artist joining the team at Stampotique Originals!

Today is the release date for the new stamp images by KIRA NICHOLS!!

I've had little time to create lately, but what time I managed to grab to use these new rubber stamps was time happily spent! They are a lot of fun. The card below shows two images - the cat in bed (SICK CAT #4006) and the pug dog that has suprisingly become my favourite of the new releases(FLOATING DOG #4002) , which initially I wasn't sure about, I'm not a dog person, but he's just sooooooo useful and so cute !!




And here is FLOATING DOG again, only this time with a spotty bow and sitting alongside Stampotiques Beauty Verse #3056. A perfect match I thought!




Here is what Stampotique have to say...

Announcing new images and new artists are always exciting here at Stampotique Originals and so we are thrilled to announce our newest artist, Kira Nichols. Kira has designed some very unique monsters and kitties for her first line of stamps and our design team has had the opportunity to play with the stamps before they are released to the public.

Want a chance to win some of Kira's new images? Hop along with our designers as well as our special guest, leaving comments along the way, for your chance to win some of Kira's new images. We will randomly draw a winner from one of the blogs and announce the winner with our next challenge.

Make sure to leave comments along the way and a randomly chosen commenter will win some of these new stamps.


From here you will want to visit fellow Stampotique Design Team member and organiser extraordinaire KIM HOWARD to follow the Stampotique Originals blog hop!

I hope you enjoy seeing all the fab work along the way.

No wonder that poor kitty is poorly with a great big dog squashing him. What a marvelous take on these 'wantable' Kira stamps.
