CHA2016 sneak peeks: stampers anonymous…

SNEAKPEEKwelcome to day 3 of the CHA2016 sneak peeks.  today i’m excited to share my new releases with stampers anonymous.  i started out my crafting obsession with stamping and have always loved the possibilities of stamped images.  whether coloring in, embossing, or incorporating multiple images, stamping remains a basic staple in my everyday creative process.  recently my love for stencils has also made a major impact in my designs and lucky for me both are manufactured by stampers anonymous in cleveland, ohio.  the ability to have a US manufacturer for these products means i always design them last to incorporate all of the styles, themes, and design elements from all of my other brands to tie everything together.  i hope you enjoy this latest collection of eclectic imagery that starts shipping this month with releases shipping through march…t!m

yesterday’s sneak peek included the new mini bird crazy and crazy things framelit die set from sizzix.  well here is the matching stamp set of mini bird crazy & things that include both the mini bird crazy and mini crazy things designs.  one thing to note is that on this new mini set, the birds are facing the opposite direction so you can use them with the larger bird crazy giving them more personality…

now i must have said more times than i can count that i had no plans to do anything else “crazy”… that is until i asked my talented friend kristina werner (the one who drew the crazy things) if she could draw crazy cats.  i know she is a cat lover, but i also know the crazy i had in mind might challenge her, but she totally nailed it.  these cats not only have their own unique personalities to them, but they also work with the original crazy things stamps shown in the card above – hilarious…

the next group of stamps include a set of new quotes, a favorite of mine to design, as well as some familiar designs wildflowers and doily (however they are not designed to coordinate with the new dies), and the new lady rose set which is vintage beauty at it’s finest…

if you’ve been stamping for as many years as i have, you already know that a good background stamp has endless possibilities.  it can create quick patterned paper using your favorite ink color, or instant textural design to chipboard, tags, and more.  these new backgrounds include a fun patchwork in two sizes just begging to be colored in, the new lattice & flourish from the popular stencils of the same name, new tailor & houndstooth which work with the dapper line, tiles & mosaic with small detailed design elements, and for the grunge lover – halftone & rings…

speaking of grunge, i discovered this mixed-media art and fell in love with the designs so i purchased them to create stamps with.  i think you’ll agree these are going to be awesome to use on cards, in art journals, and of course mixed-media projects.  starting with the hand-drawn mixed media 2 set that includes 4 different textured designs, the new evolution that includes 2 big collage stamps, and the new sideshow with a touch of vintage whimsey…

the final sets of stamps are the perfect compliment to the new dapper line as well and include label frames which fit most of my quote stamps both old and new, vintage auto which includes a big assortment of nostalgic cars perfect for collage, newsprint & type with their bold typography styling, and finally dapper which of course is my favorite (especially the invisible man – so many ideas for that one)…

lastly something really exciting to announce – new mini stencils!  i’ve been wanting mini versions of all of my layering stencils to use on smaller tags and collage projects and i’m so thankful stampers anonymous has agreed to do them.  they are being released in sets of three and are about 45% smaller than their larger counterpart – here’s a comparison…

these sets include most of my original layering stencil designs, and are great to use on their own, mixed with the other patterns in the set, or layered with the larger designs.  however you choose to use them, i think you’ll agree that the difference in scale provides a whole new dimension to your projects…

see you tomorrow for the tonic studios sneak peek…
