What's The Buzz? It's The Bee's Knees!!


At last I can spill the bee-ns (sorry, but I'm too excited!).  In fact, I am more than excited to announce that my stamp designs will be available exclusively through STAMPlorations!

Some of you will have guessed what I've been up to, and to others it's probably no surprise.  Several months ago I bought a hobby stamp making machine (Teresa Collins Stampmaker), and started sharing a few cards using the stamps that I'd made.  The response was very encouraging, and Shery from STAMPlorations offered to turn my designs into "proper" stamps.  Now, I couldn't refuse an offer like that!  And I can't thank Shery enough for putting her faith in me and my designs.

We've been working hard behind the scenes to bring you designs that we hope we're sure you'll like.  You'll also find that the designs will work very well with existing and future STAMPlorations stamps.

The Bee's Knees range starts with two sets, City Girl and Rosebuds.  (If you're a regular visitor to my blog you will already have seen these designs in their "prototype" stage.)

I'll leave you with a couple of cards in a CAS style.  Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for more info.




So that was CAS.  Next time I'll show you the same two sets in a more mixed media style, if you like.

So, what do you think?
