STAMPlorations™ is my latest project where I offer cling rubber stamps, clear stamps, and stamping kits for stampers, card makers, scrapbookers, mixed media artists, and all crafters. My husband and I came up with the tag line, “Stamp with all your ART!” after much brainstorming.
I’ve amassed tons of stamps over the years and while I love each and every one of them, there were times when I wished I had a certain stamp that I didn’t have in my stash. That’s when I thought perhaps I could try making my own stamps. And so in late June 2013, STAMPlorations™ was born.
Our stamps and designs are more along the “builder” kind; they primarily reflect the kind of stamps I love to work with — stamps I can combine to create a variety of designs. They are also sized primarily for A2 (and smaller) cards and ATCs and have a graphic/mixed media feel. (I’m a mixed media girl who has fallen in love with card-making.) We plan to release larger stamps in our second year. We release at least 2 new stamp sets every other month (January, March, May, July, September, and November).
The first stamp I designed was the It’s All About YOU! Typed & Boxed Words cling rubber stamp. I also put together the It’s All About YOU! stamp kit containing supplies to create a variety of projects using the stamp. In July, we came out with 4 new clear stamp sets: Distressed Floral Swirls, Distressed Damask Background, Mini Mixed Media Backgrounds, and Simple Flowers and Sentiments. The new sets were based on the ideas and suggestions of fellow crafters and stampers who were following my Facebook page. In August, we started offering Alice in Wonderland stamps since the Alice in Wonderland stickers in my Etsy shop were very popular. In September, we released 7 new clear stamp sets I designed for the holidays: Holiday Artsy; Jesus is the Reason; Merry; Boo!; Thankful, Grateful; Oh, Christmas Tree!; and Holiday Hexagons. In November, we released 9 new clear stamp sets in the VIGNETTE series: Trendy Feathers; Artful Flutters; Puzzle Pieces; Ever After; Tree Silhouettes; Chevron & Arrows; Art Deco Border Builders; Live, Love, Laugh; and Old Type. I also host paper crafting challenges over at the STAMPlorations™ blog where a group of creative and talented ladies joins me as my design team.
Looking for a stamp designer?
Interested in selling clear stamps under your own line? Are you looking for someone to create just the kind of stamps you’d want for yourself to use in personal projects you sell or resell to customers through your online store or website? I’d love to design stamps for you! Please contact me so we can discuss your needs further. Let me know what you have in mind. I can either create just the images for you (if you’ve already got a stamp manufacturer to create the stamps) or I can do the whole shebang — from designing to producing the actual clear stamps. My rates are reasonable :-)
