cha-summer product preview… stampers anonymous classics

thanks for posting all of the wonderful comments yesterday bloggers.  it’s been so nice to read about everyone’s favorite images from this release and sharing the kind words to mario. i asked mario to select the winners so be sure to scroll all the way to the end of today’s post to see if you’re one of them!!!

there is no doubt as a stamper myself we all have our faves that we just love to create with and that of course, was the inspiration behind today’s debut…you see, back in 2005 i was asked to design 25 images for stampers anonymous to create a “signature collection”, talk about an opportunity of a lifetime.  quite honestly though, i didn’t think i had 25 ideas to turn into stamps (true story).  my love for stampers anonymous stamps started from day one when i first learned about stamping over 13 years ago.  i think what makes the original stampers anonymous images so unique was the fact that it was a mix of eclectic designers who all submitted artwork for the stamp line.  this combination of graphics, words, and illustrations created an artistic escape for me, a place where my creative thoughts could run wild.  to this day i still have and use my original, inked up, well “loved” wood mounted stampers anonymous stamps…

okay, so i’ve been pleading with mr. stampers anonymous for years now to bring back those classic images, that great assortment of timeless designs in cling mount even though i personally did not design any of these original images.  these are the exact same size images as the wood mounted stamps, but now in the convenience of indexed cling mount rubber sets.  seriously???  this is one of those full-circle moments for me and something i’m so excited to share with all of you – introducing stampers anonymous classics…t!m
