Personalised stamps have gone Limited Edition!

Hi there!

Happy Good Friday to you!

Friday’s blog a private peek,
so today I thought I would just show you one of my 
personalised stamps which Clarity will be launching 
on TV on Sunday morning 9-11am.

The personal touch is what card-making and crafting is all about.
If we make a card or a canvas
whether it be as a gift or to sell,
I think it is important to sign it, own the artwork.

A couple of years ago, 
we launched our first 5 Bespoke stamps on TV.
They were a great success, and several thousand crafters own one.
Obviously with their names - not mine!!!

Remember these?
After 2 years, 
we have decided to turn these into a limited edition, 
and put those designs out to pasture. 
So if you own one of them, lucky you!

On Sunday, we shall be launching 5 new designs, 
again a limited time/edition.
Special offer, extra stencils and suchlike....

Here is one of them:

A mini piece of art!


On Sunday, 
let’s figure out how to make a little backplate like this,


compliment the front.

By simply using the same colours,


cutting out,


and mounting,


we transform our little Handmade by Barbie signature stamp
into a delightful piece of art in itself.

About time we started paying more attention to the backside !!!!

Can’t wait to show you the other 4 new designs 
on Sunday morning 9-11am Create & Craft TV

Freesat 813 Virgin 748 Freeview 36 Sky 674

and don’t forget: I am doing an extra hour 2-3pm for 
my pal Sara @ Crafters Companion,
showing off their Spectrum Noir pencils.

Whatever you are doing today,
enjoy it. 
Life’s too short to sweat the small stuff.

lots of love,

    1. Hi Dawn, it only says sold out, they aren't really sold out, honest. It's what Create and Craft do to block anyone from buying the products before shows, otherwise many items would sell out and there would be nothing left to sell on air. Hope that helps reassure you xx

    2. Phew, Thanks Brenda. That's a relief. xxxx

  6. Hello Barbara

    I have one of the original, original ones. Lol. And I use it every day and still love it. I chose a rose and 'handcrafted by Rosalind'.

    Looking forward to Sunday, no work so I can watch you live and watch again with my friend later in the week.

    Love

  7. Have just read previous comments and am very cross that the television company has sold out already. That means they won't allow you to demo! I, for one, want to see all the demos. If I had already bought the stamps I would like to see what you do with them and, if I hadn't already bought any, I would wish to see all the alternatives in order to make my choice.

    I never buy from C & C as I prefer to buy direct from Clarity Stamp.

    1. I prefer to buy direct too, and often find Clarity Stamp is less expensive! Agree about the demos too. I hope they make an exception.

    2. They are not sold out. They won't appear as available until the show airs. I'd guess they will go quickly so be ready asap Sunday.

  10. I love that stamp you have shared I think I might have to treat myself. It's my birthday later this month so if I get some money some of it is already spent in my head anyway lol

  12. Hi Barb,

    Can I put a message out to Dawn & Rosalind, I have just this minute gone onto Create and Craft website and ordered a new personalized stamp so as yet they are not sold out but no doubt they will be soon lol! Hope you don't mind the mention Ladies just thought you would like to know and you don't order a particular design straight away you get a form to fill in so watch the shows then decide. Hope I am right on this Barb? I am sure you will correct me if not lol!

    Love & hugs

  14. The new designs are beautiful Barb, thank you so much for having them made for the design team, such a lovely prezzie for Easter thank you, way better than a choccy egg. I'm looking forward to the shows on Sunday. Enjoy a peaceful day today xxxxx

  15. I was hoping to get the magpies {love them, garden full of them} but not now. Although I don't sell my work, I am repeatedly told I should 'sign and attribute' it to me so that the recipient knows. Even people who aren't on my card list say this.
    Really looking forward to seeing you and Sara together ~ two of my favourite crafty people!
    So, must watch tomorrow to see the new designs! Well, there we go, I'm apparently in the ranks of all the people who think today is Saturday ~~~ a sign of one Hot Cross Bun too many, methinks ~~~Deb xo

  16. Can I only order them from Create and Craft or will they be on your website.

  22. Hi Barb,
    I am lucky to own two of the original stamps - the cats and dogs and the flowers and love them. People are always very impressed by them. I will certainly be ordering one ( or two) of the new ones. Love this one! Thanks Barb, love Alison xx

  24. Hi Barbara, this new design looks great. I've resisted for so many years putting anything to do with me /my name on anything I make, despite being repeatedly told I should be! Maybe it's time to take another leap and try to stop feeling everything I make is not worthy of me signing it, and me not worthy of putting my name to anything - that's only for proper people! I think my name is not suited to trying to invent an arty signature - no letters to extend /curl from, so maybe I need to buy one of your new arty personalised stamps. I hope you've got loads of other products as somehow I think your stock of these won't last long on Sunday!!! I'll wait until you sell them on your own website :-) Love Brenda xx

    2. Was it not something to do with bottoms!!!! ;-) 20 degrees sounds good, that's a nice summer here. Not eaten by crocs yet then, your tour company mustn't have double booked your room!!!! Hope you're having fun xx

    3. That's what I thought! No Crocs yet thankfully went to the botanical gardens yesterday lots of beautiful bulbs in bloom. Xx

  25. Fabulous! Can't wait to see the rest! xxx

  26. How lovely - can't wait to see the new designs, and might just have to treat myself, although I'll buy from you rather than the TV! I'm busy trying to finish off a crochet zebra today, which was supposed to be an easter gift for my great nephew - it's still legless and faceless, so I'd best get a move on and hope it gets there before they've eaten all the eggs!!!

  27. Big tease! Just want to say how amazingly good all the challenge blog entries were.

  40. Hey guys - from experience of it being a special Bank Holiday weekend on the TV with lots and lots of special offers, I would hold fire buying anything until the show launches at 9am on Sunday morning as I am sure that some of the prices will drop!

    Happy Crafting x

  41. The new stamps look lovely Barabra, so looking forward to the shows, my monthly 'fix'. Anne x

  42. Hi Barbara. Once again I am sorry for not having commented for a week. Life is just not quite and calm at the moment but have had a lovely time catching up with all of the gorgeous cars etc. you have shared : ) I am looking forward to seeing the rest of your new personalised stamps on TV in the morning. I love how you have made this one into a lovely little piece of art. I think the back of cards are sadly neglected. Will have to get one of the name stamps but know I will find it hard to choose! You have got a busy week haven't you! TV shows, Ally Pally and lots of other stuff no doubt. This time next week I will be on the way to seeing you at Ally Pally, fingers crossed it is not as hot as last year! Have a lovely Easter weekend. Take care x

  43. I am so annoyed, I was going to treat myself to a new personalised stamp, but I was waiting for C&C to post a decent pic of all of them, and they sold out before that happened! Oh well, I spent my money elsewhere.
