I’m loving my freelance work lately. Above you’ll find the new Hanna Stamps! ‘Tis the Season’ set. I loved creating the artwork for this Hanna Stamps! set. I actually like this more than the ‘But I need it’ shopping set artwork, although at the time I thought that the shopping set was tops. This set goes public today, October 26th, and you can buy it at Kristi Ferro’s blog, www.KreationsbyKrissy.com
I’m thrilled to be the Hanna Stamps! artist because it’s allowed me to bring two of my talents together. As a character developer and a product designer I couldn’t be happier.
Kristi is the greatest client to work for because not only are we friends but she allows me almost complete creative freedom. Very early on she sent me about a million rubber stamps to try to bridge the gap in my knowledge of the medium. That package of stamps influenced my creative process in one very important way. I realised that all I personally wanted to do with stamps was make infinite repeating patterns. I loved stamping an entire sheet of paper by twisting and turning the stamps to make full pages of a repeat. It became really important to me for every set to have one stamp that really lent itself to that process. We call the repeat pattern stamp a ‘cluster stamp’ and every set has one. In this set the cluster is a smattering of stars and swirls under the mistletoe. Does it make you want to kiss it ?!
It seems like me and Hanna Stamps! are a perfect fit. I can’t wait to see what those fab stamping ladies come up with for this set. I was blown away by the cards made with the last set and I simply cannot wait to see where they take the artwork this time around!
P.S. If you love this set. . . . you’re going to go nuts for the next one! It’s my favorite! Haha.
