Wee Stamps are back in digital version and freebie!

Hi everyone,

First I apologize for my long silence on this blog. It have been really depressing and frustrating few months of trying to catch up with this new EU Vat tax laws and looking for solution how to implement the needed changes to my shop. Before I had realized my creativity and enthusiasm for work was gone though and I almost completely stopped drawing and updating my pages.

But finally I have some better news today. EU Vat is still such complicated and unregulated tax law that I decided to make your and mine life a little bit more difficult in order to be able to sell again though and still keep the prices low. As the new law (at least in HMRC's interpretation) apply to electronically supplied digital services, but does not apply when files are manually emailed and involve quite a lot of my work, I decided to reopen my shop and make the digis available via email order only.
This is how it works:
1. Please go to the Wee Stamps website here and check the catalog of my works.
(If you see "error page" - refresh it)
2. Via weestamps at or contact form on my website let me know the names of digis you like and include your PayPal email address.
3. I will send you PayPal invoice.
4. The digis will be sent to you once the payment is made.

So this is the solution for now. I am not sure how long this will last for as there are some news that this new tax laws will be expanded from automated digital services to any goods being sold online in 2016. So I may be forced to close my shop again in January if I won't find any better solution till then.  But let's hope it won't be necessary. 

Anyway please bare with this new shop rules for now and forgive the long ordering process. I also want to thank you for your amazing patience and encouraging words for past few months in all the emails I received. I already read quite a few warm welcoming words on Wee facebook as well and it gives me the well needed energy to go back on the creative track. :)

As a thank you gift for the fact that you are patiently still here I have a freebie for everyone.

The image will open, place your cursor on top of the image again and press your right mouse button, a pull down menu will appear from which you want to choose the option "Save image as...", decide where on your computer you want to save the image and click on "Save". To exit the full screen image click on the cross on the top right side of your window.

Easter addition

Hi everyone,

Just a quick post to let you know about my newest bunny that has been released today as a rubber stamp at Whimsy Stamps here and also as a part of a Easter set card toppers at The Hobby House here. At the moment he is not available as digi stamp but we are working on reopening my Wee shop and I personally hope it will happen before end of Summer. For now I encourage you to grab this little friend as a physical product from either Whimsy or The Hobby House or from any of their retailers.

 And here are the newest toppers that have been released recently. Worth having a look :)

Wishing you all lots of Spring weather wherever you are!

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well. I am sorry for my silence for a while, it has been (and still is) the most dynamic year in my life so I wasn't able to work much. I didn't have to worry about you, my blog readers and customers though as sombody else took a great care of you during that past month or so. Thank you Mariska! :)

As some of you already know there are some new VAT tax laws in the European Union which would require me to charge, collect, and then pay tax on all my digital stamps. Due to this new law we(e) decided to close the shop on 30th December 2014. But please do not worry as we hope this closing will be just temporary untill we find a new solution how to work with those new tax regulations, especially that they are quite new and they keep changing a bit all the time.
 Before we close the shop though I would like to offer you a discount if you want to add any of my designs to your collection and work with them during my off time.
Here it is: WEE10

Just use this code during your purchase process to receive 10% off your shopping HERE.
For those of you who are planning to buy some more digis than usually here is another discount code of 20% off on orders over £40 (GBP).
Promotions are valid till the end of the month as long as the shop stays open. And I have just added one more digi to the shop - Leon, as you may already know he is inspired on some real little cars' lover based in the Netherlands ;) (Leon will be available as rubber stamp in February at Whimsy Stamps)

Thank you so much again everyone for your support. I wish you all a Blessed and Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2015!

Now available as digital images Dyanne and Cuddly Ride

Good morning everybody,

I know some of you have been waiting for this announcement. You'll now find the digital images of Dyanne and Cuddly Ride in the Wee Stamps Store! Of course they are also still available in rubber through Whimsy Stamps (Dyanne and Cuddly Ride).

To celebrate I thought I'd show you a project I did with Dyanne. As you may already know Sylvia Zet was inspired by my daughter Dyanne when she drew the image. For me this image is to special to just turn into a card and send away so I decided to decorate a shadowbox with it. The inspiration for the image has always claimed it as hers and wants it in her room :). Hope you like it as well.

 Purple is Dyanne's favorite color so there had to be purple in the image.

 A close up of Dyanne.

And a sideview.

Hope you like my project with Dyanne and if you want to use either of the images and have been waiting for a digital version, wait no longer!!! You can find them HERE.

Have a great day everybody!!

Two new rubber stamps

Hello everybody,

With pleasure I'd like to inform you all that Whimsy Stamps will be releasing two new Wee Stamps rubber stamps today.

Both these images are very special to me. Sylvia surprised me with gorgeous pencil drawings of my children when she visited me in The Netherlands earlier this year. Each one of my three children received a fabulous portrait of themselves with a Wee character based on each of them below the portrait. Sylvia has really captured the spirit of all three of my children and I'll be forever grateful and will forever treasure for my gorgeous artworks. They were to pretty not to share though as I'm sure you'll agree with me so I convinced Sylvia that the Wee characters she had created really should be released.

Starting today you can buy the images Sylvia made for my two daughters Dyanne and Amy in rubber through Whimsy Stamps, tomorrow you should be able to buy the rubber stamps through your favorite Whimsy Stamps retailer (a list of retailers you'll find HERE). The digital versions will be released later this month so you'll have to wait a little longer for those but then when they do arrive they won't be alone :). Of course we'll announce the digital release both here and on the Wee Stamps Facebook page. So enough talking, with great pleasure I like to show you Dyanne and Cuddly Ride (which is based on my daughter Amy)!
Thanks for stopping by everyone! Hope you have a great day!

Sarah with a give away

Hi everybody,

Today I'd like to show you another Christmas card I made. This time I used the newly released pretty Sarah by Wee Stamps (digi/rubber stamp).
The base of the card is just kraft cardstock, with stitches by hand around the edges. I smeared a bit embossing ink on one side of an embossing folder and pressed that on two edges of the cardstock, sprinkled white embossing powder on it, tapped it of and embossed that. I wanted to get this not perfect pattern.
Like I mentioned, the image that I used is the newly released Sarah by Wee Stamps (available as a digital image through Wee Stamps and as a rubber stamp through Whimsy Stamps). I colored her with Copic Markers and 3D paper pieced her.

I hope you like Sarah as much as I do and would love to work with her as well. Sylvia was kind enough to let me give away Sarah as a rubber stamp to one of the people commenting on this post! All you need to do is leave a comment and mention that you would like a chance to win Sarah and from the people who do so I will pick one winner next Saturday. And to make things even better..... if you leave a comment on my post with this card on my personal blog HERE then you might just win this adorable Sarah as a digital image! So that's two chances, one for the digital and one for the rubber version of this adorable image! Good luck!!
