I was delighted to discover the talented artist Diane Duda earlier this year. Due to unfortunate staffing circumstances I have not give Diane the attention she deserves, as the newest illustrator at Sugar Nellie she has a launch of completely new and original stamps coming next month. You can see Diane's delightful artwork on her blog http://dudadaze.blogspot.com/ , stop by and say hello.
Diane has also kindly donated an image for our "Its a girl thing" breast cancer fundraiser which you are going to love if you are lucky enough to get hold of one as they will be limited in numbers.

.........and while reading her blog I noticed these, ain't they cute and funky!

So I went along to etsy and found them, needless to say I had to have one :)


SIX days later its here, USA to Scotland in six days, fantastic :)

So can I ask you to go have a look at Diane's etsy and let me know which artwork you would like to see made into a stamp. A little guidance goes a long way and with so much cute whimsical characters to choose from it would be great to narrow it down a little. What about frogs? We have no frogs in the House of Sugar. Birdies..............boys?


Needless to say I had to have a few bits of art from here too. I dont get out shopping much these day and I do love pretty things.

Wow-Diane's work is stunning!I love the little girl on a swing and the princess with a boat in the background-but to be honest every one of them would make beautiful stamps!

What a great artist. So very hard to choose just one piece of artwork to have turned into a stamp as they are all gorgeous.

Just because they are a bit different, I think I would like to see the penguin twins. Purely because they have multiple uses. As just as they are 'cute', for Valentines or 'love' themes - and I thought they would be brilliant for Christmas - a perfect Christmas card with a difference.

Martine said...

I must admit that i had never heard of Diane Duda's work before you introduced us to it, but ooo isnt it gorgeous :), my favourite images would have to be these ones :)

I went on her Etsy. These artwork i would like to be stamps- "Love of Chain", "Best Buds","She Kept a Simple Garden". Boys Will Be Boys".And for the last one : "She Believed in Pretty Dresses".

I would love to have the most of the art as stamps. But these I mentioned became my favorites.

I really like her work, and are looking forward to see her stamps.

I would love to help you picking some images for the new stamps - but I am not able to decide which ones I like the best!LOL Love all her animals - and all the boys and girls are just too cute. So, whatever you will choose I will have to have them! And I am sure you will go a great job picking them.
