My New PaperArtsy Word Stamps

Okay, I've been teasing you long enough... the day is finally here when I can reveal all.  I'm completely thrilled to be able to announce the release of my own stamp sets at PaperArtsy under the Eclectica banner.  And no prizes for guessing they're all about the words.















I've gathered together some of the quotes I love from artists, writers and thinkers from across the centuries and now, thanks to Leandra and Mark at PaperArtsy, I can stamp them on any projects I want!















I hope you'll be able to hop over to the PaperArtsy blog to see more of the samples I've been creating with my stamp sets.  We're starting with two themed collections in this release - EAB01 Trees and Flowers and EAB02 Darkness and Light.















I'm at PaperArtsy tonight, sharing the thinking behind these stamp plates, and over the following two nights you can see the stamps in the hands of two other PaperArtsy team members who have cooked up some beautiful quote inspiration for you.

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing in my day of joy.  I think you can probably understand now why I've been so excited!

Old words are reborn with new faces.
