CHA Sneak Peek #2: BaZooples

I'm excited to introduce our brand new Inky artist, Vicki Schreiner:


Although Vicki has worn many hats throughout her career, her passion has always been for the artwork. "Delightful images dance through my head day and night...the fun part is being able to bring these images to life and watch them grow into a finished product for everyone to use and enjoy!"

Vicki is the creator of the adorable BaZooples characters. BaZooples stands for Baby Zoo People...because animals are people, too, as she says! It all started in 2006 with Gertrude, the cuddly giraffe who watches over all of her friends:


Gertrude and the rest of the BaZooples gang have been featured on party goods, home decor, baby clothes, fabric, buttons…and now as Inky Antics rubber stamps!

Here's Gertrude all made up into a cute card by Michelle Pearson:


Gertrude will be available as a wood mounted stamp (2034K) with the coordinating saying 6807E Long Time or in a clear stamp set (11032MC BaZooples #1 Clear Set).

Elsie likes to give big snuggly hugs, in addition to birthday wishes:


The wood mounted stamp is 2064J, and the saying is 5905G Never Forget. (The corresponding clear set is 11033MC BaZooples #2 Clear Set.) Oh, and there's 4003C Bosco in the upper left corner and 2932C Bongo in the lower right corner!

I love the look on Clarence's face and the encouraging saying on this beautifully detailed card:


The wood mounted stamp is 2063J, and the saying is 8870F Over The Hump. Or you can find them both in 11035MC BaZooples #4 Clear Set.

The little Flutterbug named 4005C Bumper is hovering over 6009F Humphrey:


The sayings are 4720D Love You Tons and 9022F Still Around. Humphrey and both sayings also appear in 11034MC BaZooples #3 Clear Set. Thanks very much to Michelle Pearson for creating these wonderful cards!

All of our new Spring '11 releases, including the BaZooples you see here plus more of their pals, will be available on our main Inky site starting February 6th. I know that's still a whole week and a half away, but I'll have a couple more sneak peeks for you in the meantime!
