My First Stampotique Christmas

Published December 26, 2014 by isisimaginings

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas Day.

Long ago, in the mists of time, I fell in love with Stampotique stamps. I loved the imagery & the strange characters & I kept promising myself that I would buy some. But other things got in the way, the stamps are expensive – wood mounted & excellent quality – and time went on. But a few weeks ago, Art From The Heart had a brief sale & I could resist no longer. I bought just two stamps; Top Knot & Moth Fab.

And here’s the first card I made, using Moth Fab………

The background is Brusho colours, Portfolio pink pastel & stencilling with Orange Blossom Archival ink. The stars are a freebie stamp from Craft Stamper magazine, in 2013, I think. I added clear Wink of Stella to them.

I coloured Moth Fab with Fibralo pens & used clear Wink of Stella on her dress, the tree is from Papermania & has been in my stash for years.

I think that, to celebrate my first Stampotique project, I’m going to enter this card in the current Stampotique blog challenge, SDC176. The theme is ‘Anything Goes’, so why not?

Thanks for looking.

  • I counted my Stampotique stamps and i have 41in the Family, it’s never enough Kirsten.

    Love Moth Fab she was my second purchase & i use her a lot. Gorgeous cards, beautiful colours and a great mix of mediums.

    Am sure your collection will grow overtime too, it’s taken me 11 years to get the 41. I got 7 of them in this years Blk Friday sale, 2 for Xmas and 3 when i went on AFTH taster day so 12 in one year!

    So glad you have started your collection:-) x

  • This is gorgeous Kirsten, I love Moth Fab’s wonderful warm background. You do know don’t you that you’ve taken the first step in an addiction lol – I don’t dare count up my Stampotique stamps. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Stampotique, and have a very Happy New Year. See you again in 2015.
