It's an all new hop at Stampotique!




Announcing new images and new artists are always exciting here at Stampotique Originals and so we are thrilled to announce our newest artist, Kira Nichols.  Kira has designed some very unique monsters and kitties for her first line of stamps and our design team has had the opportunity to play with the stamps before they are released to the public.  Now if you've been Hopping already, you've arrived from the very talented Nellie's Blog!


I totally fell in LOVE with this sweet Nerd Kitty image. How cute is she? or is it a he? Not really sure, but I know for sure it's adorable!!! I coloured  Nerd Kitty in Prism Pencils and Teamed the image up with Graphic 45 Paper for a bit of a vintage look. This is also my card for the Stampotique Designer's Challenge currently going on at our Blog



And what about THIS GUY????? hehe............he made me giggle. This is Key Keeper. WAY cute too, as are all Kira's images! I was thrilled to be asked to be a Guest Designer for the Splitcoaststampers colour challenge this month and this is my CC card for this week


Again, I used my Prism Pencil for this image, with some sponging on the inside of the Nestie Template. I like the way this fun layout developed. I also used Sizzix Framelit Pennants by Stephanie Barnard to create the triangles. The Cardstock and Brads are from Stampin' Up!

Want a chance to win some of Kira's new images?  Hop along with our designers as well as our special guest, leaving comments along the way, for your chance to win some of Kira's new images.  We will randomly draw a winner from one of the blogs and announce the winner with our next challenge.

Your next stop is the Sweet, Lovely and Super Talented Willy........the queen of Beautiful Backgrounds.....oh I can't wait to see what she has for us!

Make sure to leave comments along the way and a randomly chosen commenter will win some of these new stamps.


Below is a complete list in case you go off the beaten path and need some redirection.

Kim Howard<----you are here

I couldn't resist adding a couple of pictures from Jonathon's Football game on Saturday. His Team won the KASSAA AA Championship Game and will be chasing the Eastern Ontario Title this Wednesday......please send some positive thoughts our way! I'd love to see the Boys advance!

  21. I LOVE the Vintage card with the Nerd Cat; it's just as sweet and innocent as the monsters are.
    But because I used to be a teacher the whole card has stolen my heart.
    Thanks for creating and showing it!
