cha-winter 2013 sneak peek… stampers anonymous (part 2)

hello again bloggers.  thanks for all of the great comments about the new stamps from yesterday.  i know they’re quite a few, but i must say i love stamps, kind of addicted to them one might say.  after all, it was stamping that took me down this creative path in the first place so many years ago.  well today i’m happy to be sharing more stamps with you, and why not?  since everyone has a different creative style, the more images to choose from the better i say.  this release of stamps has an eclectic mix of images and will be shipping in early march so you’ll have plenty of time to be inspired by all of the creative samples made that i’ll be showing you next week once the cha show is underway.  here we go…

this first set i collaborated with artist brett weldele who is an amazing artist that also loves distress and has a cool flair for steampunk.  i asked him to create this sketch set which would be perfect to layer with so many other time related images and die cuts all.  you can check his incredible videos here on his website…

get ready as we travel across the pond to a couple of my favorite destinations starting with a vintage ode’ to london.  the iconic elements in this set are great for layering too…

next we head to paris to view the eiffel tower, ornate fleur de lis, gathering of french ephemera, and meet up with this tattered gentleman (inspired from my new french industrial papers of course)…

as with many of my favorite images i like the ability to have mini versions of them for tags, atcs, and collage so here is a great selection along with some from the previous release including the favorite hot air balloon…

i don’t think this next set needs explanation since i already confessed my obsession to numbers.  this huge number set with it’s vintage font styling is simply awesome…

since i was inspired by travel this release i needed to add in some minis from the travel release i did last year.  having the various forms of transportation on one set is perfect for travel journals and other projects about the journey…

i think the look of vintage supplies are great artistic elements and this set of artful tools will give your next collage a bit of interest too…

there’s just something about seeing things small that make them all the more intriguing to me.  this set of tiny things is so much fun.  each image measuring only about an 1″ to 1 1/2″ they are great for adding fun elements to tags and card, stamping on tickets, dominos, and even using inside the idea-ology pocket watches – such fun…

of course i can’t release new images without a new set of quotes.  i am always looking out for sayings that inspire me and make you stop for a moment to read them and even better, think…

okay so this last stamp release for this show is over the top incredible…incredible to the fact that it’s a cling alphabet set of upper & lower case with numbers, individually cut, indexed and ready to stamp whatever you want to say.  another great thing about this font is the slender profile which allows you to stamp sayings and sentiments on a card or tag.  i told you…incredible…

so there we are, lots and lots of new stamps coming your way for this show.  some shipping now (in yesterday’s post), and some shipping in early march (in today’s post).  hope you find just as much creative excitement in having a variety of choices with stamps, but if you’re like me, it’s that “must have it all” addiction that we crafters seem to have to embrace.  i know the feeling, after all, i’m one of you too.  be back tomorrow with the final sneak peek for cha-winter 2013, this one from core’dinations (including another video).  see you then…t!m
