This turned into a review...

Deskers will have met Robyn.  
A couple of Wednesdays ago, she had a pop up card on her desk that she'd cut on her Cameo or some such.  It was lettered...and I was at a loss for words at the skill of the calligraphy.


Well, long story short, Robyn works a lot with Suzanne of Quietfire Design.  Suzanne is a letter artist.  As you know, I'm not a computer crafter, I don't wanna sit at the screen to make stuff, so I don't own a Cameo. But I needed to own this text, or some like it....
I did a teeny investigation (clicked on a link) and discovered that here in the UK, Oyster Stamps carry the Quietfire brand in unmounted stamps.  Well, be still my heart. I had to invest.



Is there anything better than a beautifully handwritten text turned into a rubber stamp?  Yes, actually, there is.  A beautifully handwritten text on rubber that stamps so perfectly it takes your breath away.  
I can't show you more than this because these are now cards to be made at the Card Marathon next month. But I will show you any other fabulous stuff that I buy that makes my stamping look so good!

I know this turned into a bit of a review rather than a brag, but none of the parties involved knows about it, so it doesn't count really, huh.  And don't stress, I'll find something to brag about later in the week!

They look fab.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

These are beautiful stamps. May I suggest you join T(ea)today, since the teapot/tea cup stamp will have many of the people who join in each week salivating to own several. And you do a fantastic job of stamping, too. I'll be glad to review your stamping abilities (grin).

Hi Julia! While waiting for WOYWW I read this post and clicked the link to find these amazing stamps! I am in the US but would still buy them because they are just that beautiful! I was looking to see if they sold them as alphabets. Do you know if they do?
Whatever those cards are for that you are making they are BEAUTIFUL!
