NEW Release: PaperArtsy Stamps

New Release


Thrilled to share with you my newest release from PaperArtsy. This UK-based company has just moved to France and are about to reopen - even bigger and better. C'est vrai!



All three sets are deeply-etched, red rubber cling stamps. They are currently available for pre-order from many of your fcvorite craft destinations throughout the world. I have a small supply in my online shop shipping now. Once I run through those, I will also be taking pre-orders.




Inspired by the events of 2020, this set includes my favorite stamp of the new release: the abstracted butterfly - which to me symbolizes transformation, metamorphosis, and change. I got some good grunge in this set too!





This set is all about symbols. The designs were inspired by the magic of symbols. And mark making -- one of my very favorite activities.





The final set in the trio was developed with the idea of making stamps that could both be used to create background detail and abstract focal points. Had to throw in the word believe too given my love of all-things-text.



Thanks for having a look-see. I cannot wait to see what you create with these beauties.

I am so very excited to announce that I am looking for a small group of people to join my first Creative Team, beginning September 1 and running for a 6-month period.

The goal of this team and the role of its members is still evolving but will revolve around creativity, community, mutual support, education, diversity, promotion, innovation, and - of course - art. If you are passionate about those words, read on...

Deadline to apply is June 30, 2020. Decisions will be made by and announced within the first two weeks of August.


Please note that you will only hear back from me if you are selected or if I have addiitonal questions to discuss. In addition, depending on the number of applications, I may not have the time to respond to individual questions regarding this call. Rather, I will answer any questions you have if you are among the group that I choose to contact. Finally please know that there are likely to be many people looking to join the few spots available. Not making the team is no reflection on your talent, ability, worth, or skills.

Looking forward to receiving your emails and building the team!

Thank you, Seth
