So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu to The Artistic Stamper

I'm sharing my top three favourite makes from this year over at the The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog today.

Curious about which three pieces I chose?......Well just hop on over to The Creative Team Blog for all the details.

I am also announcing that I am stepping down from the team after over 3 years of arty fun.

It was such a thrill when Jennie and Hels asked me to join the team...and to be frank it helped keep me sane when the world as I knew it fell apart on the death of my husband... times it was a struggle to find the mojo to carry on and make my posts but somehow I always managed to pull it off!

Time moves on (scarily so for me this year), life evolves and now love grows and as some of you know, I have met the man of my dreams...
...he thinks I'm dreamy too ;)
...what could be better?

I need to now concentrate on us and making our wedding day next May the best day ever.
Wish me luck 'cos I'm going to be making all the invites, order of service, table decorations, oodles of paper flowers know what it's like!!

So it's so long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu from me to The Artistic Stamper Creative Team.

It's been a ball :)
What do you know... May I become Mrs Ball!!!!

I'll leave you with this little seemed to fit the bill ;) ROFL

Distress Ink swooshed background - worn lipstick
(how appropriate ROFL)
and wild honey
(well he is my honey...
...I'm keeping it to myself about the wild bit! ROFLIA)

Ball Bottle :) - stamped in Adirondack black and masked
(never thought I'd have such a special use for that image!)

The globe section of Round the World stamped in Distress Ink Vintage photo and masked
('cos of all the towns in all the world he walked into mine ;)

Calligraphic Mat 13 stamped in Distress Ink aged mahogany

The Silhouettes from T!m's Mini Halloween 3 set stamped in Archival and cut out with a little border as was the small label from the same set.

Date stamps from Dates A6

Ooh! Making that made me happy :)

Thanks for looking and happy stamping!
xoxo Sioux

P.S. I'll still be blogging and making things with all the great stamps at The Artistic Stamper and entering challenges when time allows...and perhaps I will be able to find time to design some new stamps's on my very long to do list!!! ROFLIA :)


  1. Wishing you every happiness, you certainly deserve it, Annette x

  2. Sorry you're stepping down from the team,Sioux, but for such a happy reason! Have a wonderful Christmas.

  3. So glad that life is treating you well. Enjoy your Christmas and have fun planning your special day.

  4. Your eye for detail 'coupled' with your amazing imagination have once again brought about a very clever masterpiece.

Thank you for showing an interest in my blog and taking the time to leave a comment.....I truly love to read what you keeps me sane(ish)!
