Customer Creation Gallery #8

Hello everyone!

Thanks for the comments on my last blog post. Always love hearing from you :)

Just in case you haven't heard about the Customer Creation Draw for a free stamp... I am now doing a random monthly draw for people who send in projects using my stamps. The winner is announced on the first day of each month on here. If you don't want me to share your art or name that is absolutely ok. Just let me know. I will still include you in the draw. If you win, I'll send you a free stamp. It's my little way of thanking people for taking the time to share their creations with me. You really do keep me going :) Many thanks!!!

Now on to showing off your beautiful creations...

Barbara's shared more cards with me than I can count over the last year and a half! It's been an absolute pleasure to see where she's taken her art over time. Many thanks to you Barbara for contributing to this space and to my Facebook Page. You've contributed a lot of inspiration and positive energy :) In this card she's used Sea Bubbles Set around the border. Her blog HERE.

I don't usually get to see creations using stamps from my Origami series. Today I have two to share! The first is by Sonja Boom. Great idea of Sonja's to combine Origami Turtle with Water Droplets 2 in this ATC. She doesn't yet have a blog.

Love the clean and simple composition in this card! Evil Edna has used Lucine from my moth collection. Her blog post HERE.

Another beauty from Evil Edna using Kelp. HERE is her blog post for this creation.

I was very happy to receive an email from Scott a few days ago with these three creations as attachments. He is the first man to send in his creations using my stamps. Awesome cards! Check out his blog HERE.

Love Nikki's take on Origami Pig. He looks right at home with all of those beautiful Japanese papers! Her blog post HERE.

A subtle use of some of my water effects stamps by Deb Freeman. I can spot Raindrop Set and Water Droplets 2 in there. Loving the layering in this mixed media piece!!! Deb shows her process in her blog post HERE. I found it fascinating to look through.

Lastly, a card by Shoshi using Tsuki from my moth collection. When I checked out her blog I was so excited to find an awesome video tutorial on how she made this card and matching envelope. It documents her whole process with inserted text to show the materials she is using. She's even included ideas that didn't quite work the way she had wanted and how her concept changed through the process. You can find her tutorial HERE.

That's all for now. These projects will all be added to January's Customer Creation Draw. Many thanks to all of you for sending in your art!!! Looking forward to seeing what you make next.

Bye for now :)

  4. Hi Ryn, and thanks for your great comment on my blog - I'm really glad you like my hubby's metal detecting card! Although it was a huge amount of work, it was great fun to do, and he still enjoys showing it to people. Thank you also for posting the video of my card using your moth stamp here on your blog, and also on Facebook - so nice to get all this extra publicity! I hope to do some more art soon but I am battling with my new iMac for a few days, trying to show it who's boss - it's quite a learning curve, but I think I'm getting there, but as usual having problems with my network. I'll get there in the end, I expect!!

    You are showing some great work done by people who obviously enjoy your beautiful stamps as much as I do.
