Pile It On #7 - Heartfelt Thanks

Thanks for joining us at Pile It On! This week's theme is Heartfelt Thanks. Can't wait to see your projects!

The winner of this week's challenge will receive a $30 gift certificate for stamps from Stampotique Originals!

STAMPOTIQUE Fine Art Stamps began June 1, 1996, in Phoenix, Arizona, out of the love for rubber stamping and papercrafting. We began as a fine art rubber stamp store and in January 2000, began manufacturing our own rubber stamps. We now ship all over the world, although remaining a ‘mom and pop’ business so that we can still offer full attention to each and every order.

On November 17, 2007, the retail store closed its doors in order to allow us to concentrate on our growing website, both retail and wholesale.

We hope you will find our site inspirational and continue to revisit at your leisure. Our intention is to continuously update with new images, new samples and all the latest and greatest ‘must haves’ of the industry. Feel free to send us your creations and we will post them on the website for the whole world to enjoy.

The folks at Stampotique Originals provided our Design Team with stamps (wow, thank you!):
