Oh, wow...it has been so hard keeping this new release under wraps!
Not only are there TEN new stamp sets (along with a bonus freebie stamp set!), but I have also added five new enamel pins and a new zippered pouch to the Ink Blot Shop line.
And you don't even have to wait - it's all available NOW!
Let's start out with the stamps.
This first one is a special one - it's called Hand It To You:
A minimum of 15% of all August 2019 sales of the Hand It To You stamp set purchased from www.inkblotshop.com will be donated to the American Society for Deaf Children (ASDC), an organization that directly impacts families in the deaf/hard of hearing community.
I am so excited to be able to combine my love of stamping (and stamp designing) with my love of giving in this stamp set. I hope you will join me by donating directly to the American Society of Deaf Children (ASDC) in addition to purchasing this fun stamp set.
Up next...Party Monster:
Since this release falls around the 3rd anniversary of my company (as well as my birthday), I wanted to be sure to have something a little celebratory. I loved drawing this little guy and had some great help from my kids (as always) getting the finishing touches just right.
Many of these greetings fit in the monster's balloon, or you can put them on the solid or outlined "flair" button images included in the set. This is a new, smaller stamp set size for me (read: lower price point for you) and I am excited about the possibilities of this new size.
Another set at the new 3x4 size is called You Matter:
I had been feeling the need for some simple, heartfelt greetings just to let others know how loved, appreciated, and needed they are...and this set is the result. It's a small set, but packs a big punch with some well-sized greetings for card making.
If you know me, you know I can't be serious for long...so allow me to introduce the Leaf It To Me stamp set:
This one has some line art leaves for seriously fabulous fall cards, with a few punny sentiments to lighten things up.
My Botanical Borders sets have been well-received, and my brain hasn't been able to stop dreaming up new border images for future sets. Skyline Borders has a cityscape, some waves, swirls and stars, cloud borders, and more:
I'm excited to experiment with the many different ways to use this one!
In addition to the new image stamp sets, there are four new backgrounds for this release:
and Micro Gingham Background (a special request!):
I mentioned a little freebie stamp set earlier - I try to include a little something extra with every order, but this is my first time designing a stamp solely for the purpose of giving it away. If you want to be sure to receive the freebie stamp set, be sure to place an order of $50 or more (after discounts, before shipping) and I will add it in to your package (while supplies last).
Now, that's all for the stamps...but let's not forget the adorable new enamel pins! I had been considering designing pins for a while, and I figured a combination birthday/anniversary celebration was just the excuse I needed to jump in!
I've already got them pinned on the flap of my purse (so cute!), and love having them pinned on my new zipper bag, too!
The new zipper bag sure pops in pink and is the perfect holding place for all sorts of crafty goodness! I hope the "you are so loved" message on the front of the bag will ring loud and clear to all who own it and all who see it. It is perfect for gifting, too!
Whew...quite a haul, right?!
Thanks for sticking with me as I introduced the newest items in the lineup, and thank you so much for your support of my small business. I never knew what this venture would turn into when I first started out, and I could not possibly be more thankful for the people who cheer me on and keep me going.
You are so loved.
