Stampotique Blog Hop

 If you have arrived here from Jo Capper-Sandon's blog you are the right place.  If you have just come across, you may want to jump over to beginning at Kira's blog.
Announcing new images and new artists are always exciting here at Stampotique Originals and so we are thrilled to announce our newest artist, Kira Nichols.  Kira has designed some very unique monsters and kitties for her first line of stamps and our design team has had the opportunity to play with the stamps before they are released to the public.

For my card I used Kira's new Hug Monster 4007, love his face...looks so innocent.  I think this would make a very cute Christmas card.  I added the Merry Everything sentiment as it just seemed perfect.

Want a chance to win some of Kira's new images?  Hop along with our designers as well as our special guest, leaving comments along the way, for your chance to win some of Kira's new images.  We will randomly draw a winner from one of the blogs and announce the winner with our next challenge.

Make sure to leave comments along the way and a randomly chosen commenter will win some of these new stamps.

  From here you will want to visit our special guest, our newest artist at Stampotique, Kira Nichols.

Below is a complete list in case you go off the beaten path and need some redirection.
