I have teamed up with Miriam “Mimi” Badyrka, the Doodle Queen over at http://www.doodles.typepad.com/ , and will very soon have some of her doodles made into clear stamp designsΒ  !!!!!!!! If you are not familiar with her blog The Doodler you really should take a look.

 

Here is a preview of a few of Mimi’s designs I want to use.

People using my stamps in their art :)

I just wanted to share a few pictures of some beautiful pieces of jewelry where the artist has used one of my clear stamps as texture. I feel like a proud parent LOL

First is my pal Janie in Alabama. She runs a shop called Life Art Designs over at Etsy. She says is getting ready for an arts and crafts show on Dauphin island on April 16th. If you are in the area you should drop by and take a look at her fabulous work. Janie has combines polymer clay with fine silver clay (.999% silver) to make this gorgeous piece using my Asian Script clear stamp.

The next person is one of my faithful Etsy shoppers πŸ™‚ Her shop is call Mindfulmatters. She used my ever popular Vintage Circuit Board clear stamp to create this wonderful pendant.

She also made this intricate barrette using my Runes clear stamp.

Wandie Ortiz has a shop called Bijoux Hibou at Etsy and she used my Branches clear stamp to make this very colorful pendant, which I just love, that has a glazed ceramic look.

Here we have Kristen from Canada. Another of my Etsy buyers. (Thanks you Etsy) Her Etsy shop is called Wasabeads. Kristen used my Vintage Circuit Board clear stamp to make this great pendant and earring set.

You can find over 70 clear stamps currently listed in my Artfire and Etsy shops. Please drop by and take a look. πŸ™‚ I am positive you will find them interesting and unique. I design my stamps with polymer clay in mind, but they can be used on a multitude of surfaces. If you can stamp on it, they will work πŸ™‚

Vacations and Me Time

I have decided to close my Etsy & Artfire shops for a couple weeks (Jan 9th – 24th) so I can have a much needed vacation from anything that resembles work πŸ™‚ You can still place orders in the Etsy shop, but it won’t be processed until I reopen.

I am designing a bunch of new clear stamps for 2011. That might sound like work to the normal person LOL but it’s something I love to do. Here is a preview of some I’ve already done.



I will also be making some jewelry and spending some time at my mom’s while her hubby is out of town. Having a girls week. Taking all my clay stuff and my XBox 360. Bought a new game called Fable III several weeks ago and haven’t even opened it yet. Yep, I’m a closet RPG player πŸ™‚

New Clear Stamp Designs Are Finished

I spent a great deal of the day finishing the new clear stamp designs and testing them to make sure they worked. I create the stamps with Mokume Gane in mind, but they are just like the clear stamps you buy retail and can be inked up the same way.

Here is a sampling of the new designs:
