November News!!!

Hello everyone :)

Lots of news today! New stamps, the Customer Creation winner for October and November Sales!!! Here goes...

New Designs

Here are my newest cling mounted releases - available next week in my online shop as a part of a themed unmounted sheet. You may have noticed them offered already by my retailers on the sheets titled Water Effects 1 and Water Effects 2.

Hanging Droplet Set

This first one was inspired by studying droplets on the shower wall. Lol. I'm studying bubbles and drops everywhere that I go now! You've challenged me to come up with better and better designs so I'm working hard on my draftsman skills. Hanging Droplet Set comes with two pieces as seen below...

Sideways Droplets

This stamp is the updated version of my old design Water Droplets 2. I can be a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to the stamp designs and I was never happy with how the latter stamped. I kept thinking that I could do better. Since Water Droplets 2 was released I've improved my technique to capture all of the little dots that make up the 3D effect. I feel that this stamp shows way more detail and leaves a much crisper imprint.

I need to also mention that I have improved on the original Trickling Water and Trickling Water Set designs. I saw many of you combining the old designs with my other water effects. Unfortunately I hadn't thought of that possibility when I designed them and I drew the shadows going in the opposite direction. Hindsight :/ I've fixed this in the updated designs so that the shadows of ALL of my droplet effects now go in the same direction. MUCH better for mixing and matching.

Customer Creation Challenge Winner for October...

As always, thank you to everyone who uploaded their art to last month's challenge. I SO love seeing what you create :) A winner for a free stamp was randomly picked by Inlinkz this morning. A big congratulations to Denise Silva!!!!! Here's her scrapbook cover and a link to her BLOG

Sales for November

I decided to pick four this month... No particular reason. Just because :)

Admittedly, I'm not a very good seasonal designer. I'm always drawing random things at whatever time of the year. I'm not sure that I'll ever get a handle on timing. Lol. Anyways, I thought I'd try to coordinate sales to the right time of the year at least ;) Here's thinking about Christmas and winter... Some Doves, Stars and Love for you...

You made it through my post ;) Thanks for stopping by and for caring about what I'm up to!
Until next time,

  4. Congrats to the winner, and Ryn your new stamps looks amazing again!!! I'm glad it's olmost Christmas time!!!


  5. Congratulations Denise! Looking forward to new creations with your new stamp!
    Good news Ryn, love the new / improved stamps and like the Celtic stamps. I like that they are not extremely seasonal, they can be used all year round but are very suitable for the winterfestivities too.


Thank you for visiting! I would love for you to leave me a comment :)
