I have a few cards to share...

Well, I have been meaning to post. However, it literally has taken me all week to catch up from the time I spent at CHA. But I am pretty much caught up now thank goodness.

Anyway, I have been hoarding these cards, but I cannot wait any longer, I have to share. I have had a little project going on for a few months. Well ,it was more than a "little" project. I am in the process of starting my own stamp company. It is called The Pixie Cottage

I will soon be releasing my first bunch of stamps. What has been taking me so long is the never ending debate of red rubber versus clear stamps. There seems to be strong opinions on both. I would love to hear opinions on this. I have not ruled out having them made both ways to appease the masses.

I have some wonderful artists on board and cannot wait to show the whole line to everyone. I am so proud of these ladies: Andrea, Sandra, Alisa and Melissa. They have such talent, and all unique in their own way. More on these gals soon. Below you will find a few cards I have managed to get done. My coloring is coming along, but still leaves a lot to be desired. (Please note the sentiment stamp is not part of my line, but one I bought elsewhere)

I also have a blog dedicated strictly to my stamp company Here

It is in the early stages so please bare with me. I have trouble enough with just keeping up with this one. That is where I will be putting out a call for a design team soon, so please if you are interested also sign up to watch that blog.

So tell me what you think of these stamps?

those are just adorable! I prefer rubber over clear...I seem to get a cleaner stamp with rubber but it might be my technique or lack thereof!

Oh my, your stamps are delish!!!
I too love rubber stamps - I have huge problems with the clear ones - though that might be me!!!
Can't wait to see more of your stamp sets so I'm over to the other blog - GOOD LUCK!!

I like the 1st and 3rd ones the best. Very cute Michelle.

As far as rubber vs. clear, I'm definitely a clear fan. However, with such detail on these stamps, I think rubber might be better for them. Now if you can have them like the See D's stamps, rubber but not with the chunky wood block, then you're kind of meeting both worlds.

I just found your blog via a bid on an Ebay item,I wanted to tell you that I really do like your stamp line. I think that all of them are really fantastic with my favorite being the last one. The baby's full little lips are just precious. I think it's one of the cutest by stamps I've seen. I can't wait to see all of your stamp line.
