2019 Stamping Village Holiday Fest - Video Hop

Hello everyone! It’s Nina here with Waffle Flower.

Welcome to The Stamping Village Holiday Fest! Earlier this year, we teamed up with some other stamp companies to exhibit at a trade show together. We called ourselves The Stamping Village and decided to have more collaborations throughout the year!

The Holiday Seals is a 6x8 stamp set designed by 12 members of the stamping village. 100% of the net profits made from this collaboration set will benefit the Dreaming Zebra Foundation. (Purchase Here)

And here is our video for the hop!

The Waffle Flower seal is designed by our brand new illustrator Cassie Loizeaux. She kindly let us use her little mouse for this collaboration. In this video, our design team member Channin Pelletier will share her idea on using the holiday seal along with a sneak peek to our October release.

Watch it below or on our YouTube Channel.

Introducing a New Illustrator: Cassie Loizeaux

We are so excited to announce that we have a new illustrator, Cassie Loizeaux, working with us starting this month! Check out a sneak peek of her first stamp set with us, Flower Girl:

Cassie Loizeaux (pronounced luh•wah•zoh) is an illustrator and designer who specializes in whimsical children’s artwork. Her work has been licensed around the world – on everything from apparel to room decor – and been seen in Anthropologie, Sundance Catalog, The Pioneer Woman Mercantile and HomeGoods, as well as high-end boutiques throughout England, France, Australia, New Zealand & more.

 

Whether it’s digital or traditional art, you’re likely to see her dreaming up cute characters with a pencil or paint brush in her hand. When she’s not creating, you’ll find her slowly meandering down the trails of her hometown, Chattanooga, Tennessee, with her loving husband & beautiful daughter – looking at all the small details along the path, flipping the pages of a vintage children's books, or building elaborate wonderlands in the backyard with her daughter.

Find her on Instagram: @cassieloizeaux

Please join us in welcoming Cassie to the Waffle Flower family!
