Trucks (not trunks!)

I hope you enjoyed the show this morning. I don't think they showed all our wonderful Dad's Truck artwork so here are some of DT Michele's creations.
Dad's Truck is a rubber stamp from Printworks Collection. In the back of the truck are some postcards from Stamps by Judith.

These 3 trucks are on translucent shrink plastic.

Sunday 14 June 2009


Well, I am now back at home resting. We've been at our first retreat just down the road in Newport Pagnell and I have to say we had a thoroughly good time, although extremely exhausting.

I would like to say a big thank you to all the ladies that joined us for the weekend and made it so much fun and very rewarding. We very much look forward to seeing you at our next retreat.

I'm off to bed now to, hopefully, have a very long sleep.

Sneaky Peek

We will be live on Ideal World on Thursday 18th June at 11am, here are a couple of sneaky peeks of stamps being featured in the show . . .
This is Architectural Studies by Judikins. It has been stamped onto clear shrink plastic, shrunk and then placed inside the Postage Frame.
The cat is called Cat Walk by Judikins. She has been stamped in pink and then the small flower has been stamped and embossed in white over the top.

More of Kay's Demo Day Artwork

Again most stamps from Stamps by Judith and all artwork by Kay Carley.
Remember if you would like to order any of these stamps you will need to call us as we can't put them on our website.

Kay's Demo Day Artwork

All these have been created with Stamps by Judith rubber stamps with the odd DeNami or JudiKins flourish in the background.
I sent Kay a set of 36 Polycolor pencils to use in this artwork and whilst Kay did love the pencils she complained that she didn't have her favourite colours to work with.

But I think you will agree with me that these cards are beautiful and it was worth getting Kay out of her comfort zone.
More artwork will follow soon, why not come and see Kay creating artwork just like this at the Artstamps Newbury show on 4th July.

Demo Day Photos

Well, if you didn't make it to our Demo Day on Saturday here is a snippet of what you missed . . . Kay Carley demonstrating with Stamps by Judith (artwork will follow in a few days).

Lesley was creating beautiful Damask backgrounds using JudiKins stamps.

The very coy Amanda Bateman . . . . . .

. . . . creating multicolour wonders and doing fabulous things with Style Stix.

And Jenny Boxall (The Stamp Connection) sharing with us the marvels of Alcohol Inks and Distress Embossing Powders.
We did record some very short demo videos during the day so I will post them up here when they are ready.
