NEW STAMP IMAGES - Viva Las Vegastamps! Ooooo La La

Here is the Grunge Plate that you can pre order for 20% off, $17.56!!!  I am showing you this plate first because many of the images I designed!!!  I am so ecstatic!  DeeDee, extreme industrial designer, and Susan M. Brown my other partner in crime as DT for VLVS also designed on this plate.

I designed the dude, shoe, pants, and symbols.  I came up with The Flip Side to coordinate with the pants and DeeDee who added On and created an awesome font!  Susan did the fantastic recycle heart.  It's important in the world today to stay green.

I adore DeeDee's other designs.  The coffee like mark is brilliant for backgrounds.  The sign, the cone, and sewer cover match great with the other images out within the past several months.

I am so honored!

This plate is just perfect for any journey, journey for vacations, or journeys of the soul!!  I can see many of these with the grunge plate too.  The Road Not Taken is one of my fav's and the kids on the wagon.

It is Circus time, County Fairs out on the Midway!!!  I have been wanting a flag image, that and the bulls eyes match with the grunge plate and for backgrounds.  I adore the weight lifter and Zoltan - and you have to have a "Ticket to Ride."    I love that beyond giving you several images, VLVS plates are crammed with words and accents.  That's a great bang for the $$$!!!

Last year DeeDee created some beyond all Halloween plates and this tops them and would be great to add with those images.  Whimsical, and fun - I already have ideas for this plate.  I like solid stamps as well as outline.  Solid let you either do black/purple/orange or other color- color combinations!!!!

Mary Vogel Lozinak plates are some of the most wonderful plates!!!  Look at how they go together with the circus plate.  That frog is outta sight, the elephant is sweet and the lady is waiting to be altered!

All VLVS stamp images are put together with many designers to give you an array of images to inspire your Muse!  Whether you like weird, pretty, or scrappy, I find that VLVS covers all styles of stamping.

You may think I am prejudiced, but I am!!!  I have been buying these stamp images since 1991, and I am so happy I can do some designing.  Being a part of VLVS means so much to me.
