First Stamps Giveaway!

Woohoo! I've received my stamps yesterday and finally able to do this first giveaway. Here are the stamps that I've giving away to one lucky winner. They're the first ever stamps designed by me for Queen Kat Designs. These are clear acrylic stamps.




Here are the links to the store for each stamp if you're interested in getting them.
Simply just post a comment here telling me how will you use these stamps or if they inspire you in anyway by Dec 15 and I'll use a randomizer to pick a winner on Dec 16. The winner will have to create at least one project (of course you could create more if you wish) using these stamps and I will feature her project here at my blog. Spread the word and share this news with all your friends. I'll be creating some samples using these stamps and share it with you all sometime next week.
This is such a cool birthday celebration giveaway! Try your luck now!

Well, the one that "speaks" to me right now is Adventure! We are moving from Kansas to Ohio in 8 days and I've never been there. So, it's gonna be a real adventure!!!

stephanie said...

How fun. I'd use these stamps to create "manly" birthday cards. I'd also use them for travel card and layouts - all those vacations I want to take!!!
BTW I absolutely LOVE your work.
Thanks for the chance to win some of your blog candy.

We spent a week this spring driving and exploring every back road on Kauai. These stamps would be perfect for scrapbooking some of our pictures. How cool that I can be the first post. Saw it on Facebook and had to come and check it out.

What a great way to start the Holidays with a giveaway. I love the compass stamp you have created it reminds me of the many times I have been sailing with my family.

Library Bunny said...

Love them. I would use them for a few things, our wedding trip to Jamaica. We did a lot of adventurous things such as sailing and snorkeling. I could also use them for pages of the dogs out and about on our property. They could also be very fun for boy birthday cards. Congrats again, they are awesome.

Eve said...

I love all of them i would use them on my honeymoon pics from Thailand ...I have 4 sons so they would get a lot of use on my boy layouts especially the adventure stamp that grabs me very much i can see that used on one of my sons BMX bike riding layouts ..
P.S Irene i totally love your work its truly amazing and so inspiring ...

**luci** said...

I could use the Adventure for lo's of my niece, she is young and loving live right now. And the compass for direction, and the map for cards to my niece, that no matter where she is I love her and am thinkng of her everyday. Thanks for given us the chance to win one of your first stamps.

Renee said...

Wow Irene you are such a sweetie to be doing this. I absolutely love these stamps and you probably already know I love your work! I am just about to start a mini album of my father-in-laws fishing adventures and these stamps would work perfectly with that.

Congrats on your first stamps.

Take care
Renee xox

ashjoy said...

Wow, what a wonderful accomplishment. I can't wait to see your next stamps.

These stamps inspire me to continue to create pages for my Dad's scrapbook. I have a family reunion page waiting to be made.

Beautiful blog!

MamaSheg said...

Congrats on your new new stamps, they look awesome!! I think these stamps would look amazing on some altered tags with some distress ink and Glimmer Mist. I can see it now!! Love your creations. Happy Holidays XOXO

Angelique Goudeaux said...

Congratulations! You just keep rockin and rollin! Well I can't pass up a shot at a freebie. The bottom 2 make me feel vintage-y. They would work well as part of a collage piece. Would probably look great stamped on canvas or a textured something. Phew! I'm done. Being inspried is hard work. I need a chocolate break! :-) :-)

Andrea aka Andy Scrap said...

Hi Irene,

This will go very well with scrapping my recent overseas trip in Europe. I took my mother there for her and my birthday in October and I still haven't scrapped a single page...Just don't know where to start. But your stamps would be great to use generously with all the pics we took. Thanks for the idea.

Renata Moni said...

I would use them for all the travelling/adventure cards or LOs.
They are amazing!
You rock!

Dawn Hueser said...

Thank you Irene for sharing your wonderful stamps with us.

I would love to use the compass on graduation pages- "A new Direction", of course the the clock faces "Changing times" The adventure of course is self explanatory - Finally I want them to leave home, enjoy life but don't forget to drop a line and share their excitement.

My partner and I are also going on a wonderful trip in January for three weeks. Need I how appropriate these would be for that.

Upon looking closer at the images what I thought were clocks are really gauges - so I could do a layout about a difficult situation and call it " The Pressure is ON" or "Racing forward".

Thank you so very much for the oppurtunity.

How cool!

I love the compass stamp! I like to use stamps like that to emboss images on patterned paper for extra oomph.

Congrats on getting the stamps done!

Char- The Mad Shopper said...

I can see a mixed media collage with these stamps as well as many other ideas. Congrats on your first stamps.

I luv luv the design of the clock and the stamp. My mom and I took a trip to celebrate 5 years of cancer Remission last year and plan on making an album of our trip as a gift to the anniversary.
This will be a great embellies to add to the album.
Thanks
Maggie

Robin said...

Oh these are so much fun!
I could see using these for our adventures to Boston or Mexico or Costa Rica.
I could also use them for Girl Scout pages (I lead a troop of 14 Senior Scouts ... yep, 14 teenagers in the same room ... egads).
Anyways, these could be so fun for all kinds of pages or cards!

Tine said...

Prettier Stuff said...

Irene, these are great & I can't wait to get some. I would definately use them for accents on travel pages.These could motivate me to get out some of those old photos and put them into a book. Love your work and I'm very happy for your new design team position at Queen Kat Designs. They are a great group. Melissa

Anette said...

Beautiful stamps - all of them!!

I can use several of them when I'm making my son's birthday invitations in January. He wants a pirat-birthday...

I'd love to use one of your stamps!!

G3 said...

Wow!!! Great to see your stamps Irene. I particularily like the adventure one and the compass one. Will be great on any boy's layout especially my DS.lol!!!
"Enjoy life" is something I can use on cards and one LOs with portrait photos.
The distressed speedometer I will definitely use in my DH's LO as we constantly fight when he drives. He is too slow!!lol!!
I would love to have them as they are from YOU, the Queen of scrappers and my favourate. Feeling too cold hun!!lol!

mystyle said...

WoW! All of them inspire me to finish some more layouts of my travels! Happy Birthday! Thanks for sharing it with us!

paperqueen said...

I love these images, and have been thinking about them since you first mentioned them on your blog. I make cards and ATCs, and they would surely find their way on them, but I also scrapbook, and love to travel, and these would be perfect for my layouts. I can just see them on my pages after my upcoming vacation to the Dominican Republic.

Tereza Crump aka MyTreasuredCreations said...

so cool!!! enjoy life stamp is a must have!!! I can see myself using it on my children's layouts. :)

paulien710 said...

YAHHHHHHH... those stamp are brilliant Irene. Congrats to you!!!! for this big adventure. You are a very great source of inspiration, I told you that, more then often.
Have you seen the 12 days of Christmas tags by Tim Holtz, well on day 12 he used some clocks by Heidi Swapp, but I think that these stamps are even more beautiful, to use on it. I mean Santa do need a guide-line, doesn't he?! So I would use the compass stamp or speedometer for that.
I'm soooo looking forward of all of your soon to be created stamps.
Wishing you all the best and a very happy BIRTHDAY!!!!!!

Debbie said...

Hi Irene...Beautiful stamps, you must be very proud.

Now to use them..mmmm....well everyday is a new adventure, the chance to do something different, not just travel, but an adventure in life. Choosing which direction to go in. How fast to travel, enjoying life along the way. I can see many possibilities for them.

Love Debbie xx

suzeq4500 said...

What a wonderful set of stamps. Most of my layouts have a vintage feel to them. The stamps I tend to use are maps, trunks, clocks, vintage postal etc. I'm currently working on a family history album(s)project. I incorportate stamping somewhere on most of my pages and these would work in wonderfuly. I have been following your work for the last couple of years now and it's amazing.

Mel said...

I would say I love all of them...but Adventure I would use as a title of most pages for my DD...each day is an adventure with her.

The one that states Enjoy life...I would you often as well. Our family travels a couple of times a year. I love the stamp...you could put embellishments on every travel page where you are.

Just excited...this are way cute..Congrats and enjoy.

Gra said...

Happy Birthday Irene, and congrats on your new stamps! It must be amazing to see the finished product of something you created. I really love the distressed compass. All of them are so fab though.
I've been separated from my husband because he is away with the Navy and this would be perfect to make a card for him, or to accent one of the layouts in our love story album.

I love these stamps! Great job! I would use them over and over. I just got back from five weeks in Europe, so I have a TON of pics that I could pair with these gems! Great timing!

Starr said...

Love all the designs but the one that inspires me the most is the Adventure stamp. All the circles remind me of bubbles & would be great for pool LOs as I have a lot of photos with my cousins & friends. We used to come up with great games to play in the water.

Christy said...

Great stamps! I'm a big fan of your work! I think these stamps say travel, they call for a great trip to a beautiful place...I would use them in honeymoon layouts, much over due but perfect for enhancing the memories!

joybear said...

TesaB said...

Judy said...

I am creating two mini albums for the trips my son takes with his children each year. They take marvelous pictures and I really enjoy creating the pages...I do the pages before I see the pictures, but I know they are going to the mountains to see the leaves change so I know what color schemes to use....

Your beautiful stamps will certainly be the "icing on the cake"!!!

I enjoy your site so much...I think I look at your creations every single day. Thank you so much for sharing.
