Dancing on the ceiling...

...ohh what a feeling...as Lionel Richie sang all those years ago...

And why may you ask, am I dancing on the ceiling?? Well, you may remember a few months ago I was thinking about getting some of my own l'il sketches made into stamps. So I thought I would test the water and get a stamp made up. You can see my original design here.

OK...are you ready? Can I have a drum roll please...

Ta Dah!!

The stamp turned out far better than I could have ever dreamed. I managed to find a really good stamp manufacturer, and I am over the moon with the quality of this stamp.

So would you like to see the result when it's all inked up? OK, another drum roll please!

Here it is...

No embellishments, just simple stamping to show off the design. I have just added tons of Glamour Dust for some sparkle!

It is really simple stamp design I know, but then I love clean and simple. The stamp itself is quite large..approx 12cm x 9cm, but that's what I wanted so that it can make a statement in it's own right!

And finally one more shot...

It is the weirdest feeling seeing your own design in the form of a stamp, but very satisfying and now I want to do more! However, I'm a long way off selling these at the moment...having a full time job doesn't make things easy as I have so little free time. But I will plod on and do it when the time is right.

These very simple cards were made quickly this morning so that I could post them on my blog for you to see, but I think there are a lot more interesting creations I can make with this stamp so watch this space!

Many congratulations Sarita. I think it is brilliant and very enterprising of you that you have had your own stamp produced with thoughts of selling them in the future. I'm sure when the time comes you will be inundated with orders.
Beautiful cards BTW.

CONGRATULATIONS Sarita!!! This stamp is divine and when you get around to selling them, I want one!
Please.

I've just been catching up with your recent creations (I've been away to Prague) and I must say they are to die for. I bought some WM stamps having seen them on your blog. I have already used one of the friendship ones but I also bought the Halloween set and I can't wait to use them. Whilst in Prague I bought some actual eyeballs. Well - not actual eyeballs - but geletin ones and I just need to work out how to package them. Your Halloween creations are soooooo fabulous in purple and black. Everytime I come to your blog I never cease to be amazed and delighted. Never give up! Warmest wishes, Lesley

OOh! Sarita, you must be so proud. I`ve been going to e mail you all week to ask how they were coming along,now I know.This design is stunning. Although fantastic as a digi, the scope of an actual rubber stamp is endless. Just think, in a few months you could be one of the UK`s leading stamp designers. Please hurry, I NEED these stamps.

Paula Gale said...

OMG Sarita - I was wondering the other day when catching up with all your posts whether you'd pursued the stamp making - and wow - so glad you did. These are STUNNING and have produced stunning results too.

Now - don't be long before you get round to selling them because I WANT THEM!!! Can't wait to see how your other sketches turn out as stamps too - if they are anything like this one, I can see a big future for you... you'd defo have a customer in me anyway.

Well done, and remember to follow your dreams.
