Join the StencilBop Challenge August 1

Come and join me in the Stencilbop Challenge throughout the month of August, and “let your stencils bop!”

Follow me on Instagram for the daily prompts but I will also occasionally post recaps here on the blog. Each day will bring a new prompt and a new way to have some fun with your stencils.

Here is the Prompt List:

Each day beginning August 1 on my Instagram page I will post my take on the prompt. You can either try the same things or just try and do your own approaches following along with the prompts. I so hope you will share what you do and if you post on instagram, use the hashtag #stencilbop

New Fan ArtFoamies Stamps: Summer 2019

My latest ArtFoamies foam stamp designs are here and they are FANtastic :)

These are my new favorites for making patterns as they can all fit together in a number of ways and you can use the back side of the stamp for a solid fan shape too. For this release I have 4 fan pairs that have the positive negative versions of the designs, and then a little 4 piece set of Mini Fans.

Here is the Broadway Fan Positive Negative pair – love this bold design.

And then Fairview Fan Positive Negative pair – an Art Nouveau inspired design.

Here is the Jewett Fan Positive Negative pair that features a lovely botanical element to the design.

And the Van Vorst Fan Positive Negative pair – a perfect one to show how the back of the stamp makes a fine solid fan shaped stamp too.

Here are the positive negative stamps in action in my art journal.

Finally the charming Mini Fan Set that gives you 4 designs to play with.

Loved stamping all these out for my art journal page here – the different patterns just work so nicely together!

Check out all the new foam stamps today!!!

New Product Announcement: Solid Shape Rubber Stamps

I am happy to announce that the 4 new rubber stamps in the collection are here! This makes the “family complete” as these new Solid stamps are a great addition to the Hex and Floral Tile sets.

The Solid Hex Large is fun to use on its own with different color inks or even black and white. But as with all these new stamps, it is an amazing partner with its patterned counterpoint… the Hex Set Large stamps and as seen below the Hex Set Small stamps.

You can stamp a field of them and then add the patterned stamps overtop:

The pattern above also includes the cute little Solid Hex Small stamp:

This is again, great on its own…

… but WOW is it fun to pair up with the Hex Set Small stamps:

Next up is the Solid Square Large:

Simple and bold on its own…

… but oh so nice to stamp with under the Floral Tile Large set!

And finally the Solid Square Small stamp:

This one is amazing for checkerboard backgrounds:

And then you add some stamps on top like my Love Tag or Hope Tag or Star Tag ;)

And here is a sample mixing up the Large and Small Solid Squares with my Floral Tile Large and Fanfare sets for some yummy pattern:

And another pattern getting the Solid Fan Large and Small and Fantastic Large and Small in the mix :)

You can find all my rubber stamps in my shop here and here are some of the supplies I used for these samples:

    Hi Nathalie,
    I have an idea can you make a creative jumpstart session that special for us to make decoration for our art studio (maybe something that pure for decoration en maybe also something that for storage ?) en also how to make our mixed media art that we usually do in our journal can be posted somehow on the wall maybe even at our living room / dining room or bedroom??

    En greeting


    • Kim


      Hi Au Mo – so glad Creative JumpStart has you thinking of all the ways that you can be creative, in your art journal, in your studio, home and beyond. We hope you do flex your artistic muscles and try some of the projects from 2019 that happen in your art journal, encourage you to embellish elements of your home with your own style, and play with pieces that can hang on the wall of any space in your home. The CJS19 My Home is My Castle theme is all about exploring those super fun and yummy mixed media activities. We also hope to see you next year when CJS takes us somewhere completely different, and challenges us once again with a new theme. I know our artist teachers will again JumpStart our creativity :)

Rubber Stamp Demo This Friday at The Ink Pad, NYC

Join me Friday June 7th from 4-7pm at The Ink Pad in NYC! I’m super excited to be able to drop into this amazing store – right in the heart of New York City and so close to my own hood.

And The Ink Pad is making the event even more fun: The first 5 people to show up will receive a Moonlight Ink Pad.

I’ll be demoing my new rubber stamp sets. Maybe there will be some pattern demos and layering demos. I learned so much about these stamps just by playing with them myself. Join me and see for yourself.

The Ink Pad is located at 37 7th Ave, between 12th and 13th Streets. Drop in and say Hi! :)

New Product Announcement: Mixed Media Chips!

I’m excited today to announce a new product featuring my designs: Planet eARTh Mixed Media Chips by the folks at RubberMoon! The chipboard pieces can be used to stencil or collage, they are made out of recycled material, and they are a fun addition to my other products.

This one is called Hexastencil and it is the perfect size to work with my Hex Set Large rubber stamp set as you can see here:

I stenciled with the Mixed Media Chip, then stamped inside the design, and then added a bit of the chip to the page. You get 2 Mixed Media Chips in each package, so there is some flexibility with how you can use them.

This is the FANtastic chip – designed to work with the FANtastic Large rubber stamp set.

Here again I used the chip as a stencil, then stamped in with the Fantastic Large stamps, and then collaged a bit of the chip in there. After you use the chip a few times as a stencil, it can have some nice color to it that makes it perfect to glue in there.

Here is Midtown 1 chip for some funky abstract city buildings…

And Midtown 2 for a couple more buildings. I love these for collage:

I made some cards with the Midtown chips.

Here is the Paint Splat design – great for adding a little haphazard grunge.

And the Ink Splat because it is way more fun to have a couple like this :)

I used the Ink Splat chip here with golden gesso applied nice and thick with a palette knife. So juicy!

You can check out all the new Mixed Media Chip patterns in my shop and I hope you share with me how you like to use them!
