Hello again, stamping friends! I've got super exciting news to share. I'm so proud to introduce The Bee's Knees, a new stamp line under STAMPlorations that features designs by Shirley Bampton! Shirley is our first stamp designer recruit and I'm so chuffed! It's wonderful to have another artist creating fun stamps for our little stamp company.
To start off The Bee's Knees, we will be releasing two stamp sets by Shirley in November, along with the other stamps I designed. But before I show you those two sets, read about how Shirley ended up designing stamps:
"Hello, Shirley Bampton here, and I’m so excited to be launching my own line of stamps, The Bee’s Knees, available exclusively at STAMPlorations.
"I’ve been stamping and cardmaking for about 17 years, and during that time I’ve amassed a huge number of stamps, but sometimes there would still be a stamp I wanted that wasn’t out there yet. So a few months ago, I bought a hobby stamp making machine, started drawing and doodling and had a go at making stamps from my own designs.
"Fortunately for me, Shery was interested in my designs and offered to produce “proper” stamps under the umbrella of STAMPlorations - my favourite stamp company ;)
"This is a dream come true for me, and I hope that you’ll like my stamps as much as I do."
Shirley is one of the most talented card-makers I know and admire, and she's certainly one of my favorites! And I can't be any more proud to have the opportunity to create projects using her designs!
