Worth the wait! Blog Candy and New Releases!

"the possibilities are endless."

That should be the credo for our hobby, because rubber stamping is just that, endless possibilities. And just like the fort Bink built, all you need is a little imagination.
(Stamps: house -DF country collection and bink, bike and fort -DF great outdoors collection)

I have SO MUCH to tell you guys about! It's been a LOOONG week trying to get ready for our upcoming Rubber stamp shows in Novi, Michigan (Heirloom Productions is hosting the Stamp and Scrapbook paper arts festival August 16 and 17, 2008 (visit for show information, check out the vendor line up, its a BIG show!) followed by another looong distance drive the following week to Hamburg, NY August 23 and 24, 2008( which is up near Buffalo and only 38 miles from Niagara Falls, which of course we must visit while we are over there!

Anyway, so while we have been trying to get ready for that, we have also been very hard at work putting together the sentiments for the new Great Outdoors set. I'm so excited to finally be able to show you the new sets, put up the next blog candy and tell you about our new special!

First things first.. You guys have been really patient and its about to pay off...

Because here are some our newest offerings:

DoodleFactory the Great Outdoors!

and as promised coordinating sentiments:

Heidi helped dream up a good portion of these guys (props to Heidi!)
and even Irene and her Beau got in on the fun!

"when I grow up, I wanna be just like you."

"over an open fire"

These are starting production this week and should start shipping by the end of next week. They are already loaded on the website and available for order. Now the cool parts... After this set was completed I got an email from Heidi suggesting a firefly (we call them lightning bugs around here) and I was pretty bummed out that I didnt think to add one. I mean what says BOY, SUMMER and CAMPING (aside from mosquitoes!) well lightning bugs of course! But whats done is done and the plate was already off for engraving. Then I realized I was putting together the sentiments and wouldnt you know it I could find a few spots for some doodles! So I shot Irene a quick email and worked out a deal for her to doodle up some fireflies for us ASAP!

And the best part... For a limited time only...they are coming FREE with your purchase!

When you purchase the full sheet you will get these lil' fellows free!!

and you will also get this cute little bear print to go with Yoris and all those fun bear sayings:

And for the blog candy, we are giving away the first sheet (DF the Great Outdoors) and sentimnt sets (Outdoors, Together, Sign, and Tree huggers) and the freebies FREE!

All you need to do to enter our blog candy is two small things... First, promise to SPREAD THE WORD! Tell everyone you can about the blog candy and post a comment on this thread telling Irene what collections you would like to see her doodle up in the future! Dont forget to put your email addy in your comments so we know how to contact you! We will post the winner next tuesday night!
Dont forget to sign up for blog updates so you dont miss any new offers and releases. We have lots of new images coming out soon!


Stefanie said...

Wow, I love these guys! The grill & camper are so cute and I just love the expression on Pogue's face.

For future sets, I would love to see a winter set. Penguins, ice skating, ice fishing and igloos.

I'd also love a train maybe combined with a circus set. With lions, lion tamers, trapezes, a big top and so on.

Allison said...

I don't care if I am first and first never wins...ha! These Doodle Factory stamps are terrific and my latest addiction! These look fun! I don't know how possible it would be to draw some kids but I would love to see Irene's take on them (particularly if they were miscreants like mine!).

postal orphan said...

Squeee!! How totally cute - especially the mosquitoes and fireflies! I have several friends who love to camp, and they will adore this set.

I would love to see more doodle birds!


stampinc said...

These releases are awesome. I would love to see more stamps relating to stampers and scrapbookers. For sure more male stamps in sports and jobs. Thanks for a chance at this sweet candy.

Kim Ross said...

Wooohh, these are adorable!! I'd love to see a sweets set with cupcakes and truffles... and the characters eating them, too. :)

Thanks for the chance to win!! kim1209 (at) yahoo (dot) com

Freaky aliens, weird planets, funky flying saucers, crazy stars & comets and so on.

Evelina said...

Oh ma goodness what a great offer! I would really like to see a "canada wilderness"-collection, with bears and elks and redwood trees and crazy waterfalls. With a doodle touch these motifs could be super cool!

Emmy said...

Oh.. shes done it again!
ofcourse i will spread the word!
And how about some Olympic inspired doodles? the games are starting in just a few days, but sport is going on 24/7 it feels.. :) and sport-illustraded stamps are very nice for cards directed to brothers/fathers etc
Kepp it up!

Vina said...

I LOVE this new outdoors set!! too cute! Great job Irene!! I'm a new fan & my 1st order of the creatures & Urban set is on it's way..can't wait to play!!

Thank you for offering your blog prize..I will be sharing your site & fun stamp creations!! Vina email:

Basement Stamper said...

Oh, I would love to see some more girly sets (princess sets, dress ups). I have a girly girl and she would love that!

Gina Wrona said...

Wow, I get to be the first? How sweet is that? Just like your candy & creations. Love them all!

I'll forward an email with the info since I don't have a blog to post it, but trust me, I'll get the word out!


lindatruedsson said...

Wow! So I have longed to be able to get a new set in my hands!

Hrm, what set would I like to have? Some cute chistmas doodles is om the top of my list! Perhaps some party animals with cake and other party accessories...

Linda Truedsson (

Miki said...

This new collection is really cute! I love the sentiments...especially the sign one with "cootie free zone". That's cute! I'll be spreading the word about this new set & sentiments.

I think the adorable animals, monsters & robots would be so cute in a birthday set. I can see them with party hats, streamers & birthday cake all partying together! And I know you would come up with some really fun, non-traditional sentiments for them too. Sometimes just stamping "happy birthday" is no fun!

Sofia said...

Nice looking stamps as always, ofcourse I want to win some so I spread the word in my blog.

yngla said...

Oh, these stamps are so adorable! I would be so happy if I was to be the lucky winner!!!

Jennifer Love said...

How SUPER CUTE are these stamps? I'm just loving to pieces the little critters I'm seeing on the blogs by you guys! Love it!

lnda patti said...

i promise to 'spread the word'...
and how about some doodles of some sea creatures, shells etc.?

fishlips said...

I promise to spread the word... I would love it if you could do a set with fish. With a funny looking frog man and greenery, shells,fishing polls,treasure chest,frogs,turtles,clams,seahorse,angelfish,lionfish,stingray,discusfish,etc... all with your unique style...

Muffin said...

Wow, the new stamps are really great!! I will spread the word, of course, and post a link on my blog. I have already asked Irene on her blog if she's making any new holiday stamps for x-mas this year. I'm really hoping for an early release so I have lots of time to make christmas cards... Thanks for this chance to win, I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
=o) Muffin (Eva A)

Heather D. said...

Cami said...

Hooray! I posted a link to this post on my blog. I hope you get a lot of traffic. I looove Doodle Factory and I can't get enough. In the future, I'd like to see... these crazy doodle creatures crafting their hearts out- sewing, knitting, stamping, scrapbooking, crocheting, painting, and blogging! Thanks!

Gael said...

Cute cute CUTE!!! Love'em! Irene is such a talented designer, I'm her greatest fan :)

Of course I'm spreading the word, although in Swedish:


Barb Hardeman said...

Oh it's hard to improve on perfection, but here it is! These new Doodle characters are so fun - Love the sentiments that go with them too. The Mosquitos are hilarious! The expressions on the faces are great. This is going to be a wonderful set and I can't wait to see what everyone is doing with their creations.


Cynde said...

The new Sets are Great! I would like to see some play ground type stuff. Hanging off a rope & tire,swingset, skateboard, slide, teeter totter, hopscotch, sandbox w/ bucket & shovel, one of those merry go round rides, where you all pile on and one pushes and then jumps on (ok, I'm dating myself! They've deemed them too dangerous for now a days!)Also an old Train Engine to climb on, a rope/wood bridge. Gosh I better stop! Anyway think it would be fun for a series. Thanks for asking for the input.

jenstamps said...

This new set is great!!! I kind of have a "thing" for monsters. LOL

For future sets...I would love a circus set, ocean (Saltwater: marlin, sailfish, tuna, dolphin NOT porpoise) fishing set, Space monsters, Party Animals (Great for birthdays) set, and more Halloween!!! a bat, cyclops, Franky, werewolf, and a witch!

I'll post the news on my blog too!!! ;)

Miapuh said...

WOW cool stamps :)
ofcourse I want to win some so I spread the word in my blog

Karen M said...

These Doodle Factory stamps are fabulous. They look great...and oh so much fun!!!!! I do love the cards. How about a safari/african hunter set.

Dawn Mercedes said...

Oh man, oh man! Sign me up! I am waiting for my Tropics set as I type this! I LOVE fireflies! Mykids have enjoyed collecting them this summer. And during the day, they want to collect jars to collect them at night!

What about a classroom of kids..different "types." hehe.

Or what about trees/flowers/plants that have personality?

Dawn Mercedes said...

I forgot to post my email...

Clayburn Family said...

Wow!!! I love the BBQ grill, the tent and the camper, for starters! I actually love this entire set!!! Woo Hoo. In the future . . . I'd too, like to see something train oriented. With a dad who worked for the railroad for 30 years, I need a train set!!!
Thanks for this opportunity.

HeathersHobby said...

This is the first time I've seen your artwork! Love the set - so cute. The lightning bugs are *great*. My two favorite holidays are Christmas and Thanksgiving. I'd love to see sets of either one. Silly turkeys, gourds, cornucopias, pilgrims. Peppermints, candy canes, gumdrops, ornaments, elves.

Erin Glee said...

These are so cute... I love the deer!

I think an outer space set with a rocketship, aliens, UFO's, planets etc. would be really fun!

Thank you for the chance to win... I'll tell my friends! Erin~

jules said...

I would love to see some silly looking dogs/cats.
Or maybe bible scriptures.

I love your stamps! I want to win some so I spread the word in my blog!!! Jezzza

maxell said...

These stamps are really nice. A great contrast to the Urban set for all that time spent in the Great Outdoors. ;)

Themes to wish for? Well... there are many fun themes above and there will probably come more of them below this posting. Personally I really like the crafting, the circus, the space and the halloween themes already suggested. And I would like to see a cool rocking set with real attitude. Small creatures who really kick ass. ;)

Catherine said...

What a great blog candy to add to my new collections, LOL! (<--- just wishing I'll win). My lovely creatures just came home last night and ofcourse I had to play with it..check TWINKX here

And for future doodles...dinosaurs, that would be cool!

Thanks for the chance!

rachelsigmak said...

I love this site, I have a few others addicted as well! I love everything that comes out.. I couldn't ask for more! Though I love the ideas that others have given! Especially the Circus one!!!!

Paper Makeup said...

yippeee! So cute! and we camp a lot! I posted about the blog candy and new releases on my blog if you need proof of my spreading the word. hehe.

As for new stuff, i love the idea of dinosaurs too! My son is desperately into dinosaurs right now! But i think some pets would be fun too to add to the animals. :)

Anonymous said...

Linsey said...

OMGOsh, these are absolutely fantastic!!! I love them all, so many interactive elements and accessories--just looks like tons of fun to play with!

I would love to see different athletic themed characters--like dressed up in football, cheerleader, golfing outfits, etc. Wouldn't that be such FUN! I don't care what you come out with next because I know that I'll love it and snatch it up immediately! TFS! hugs!

Cal said...

I am so loving these guys, they are so cute! I had to send my girlfriends over here to check them out. I would love to see more holiday doodles. I have the other ones and they make the best holiday cards. Thanks for the blog candy opportunity

Tiffany Piser said...

These outdoor guys are cute!

The few suggestions that I thought of future doodles, once I read through the comments, have already been suggested. But my thoughts were a Fall set (not necessarily Thanksgiving, but that would be nice, too), dinosaurs and space, anything boyish and manly. I have mostly boys in my house! I'm live in Alaska, so an Arctic set with eskimos, moose and bear would be cool.

Therese said...

OMG...these new sets are sooooo cute!!! I LOVE the sayings that go with it, too! As you said, the possibilities are endless! As far as what I would like to see in from Doodle Factory...maybe something with hotrod cars and matching sayings.

I am not a camper (unless a hotel counts), but I WANT these sets!!!

Else Slipsager Petersen said...

Donna said...

I just love these stamps, they are all cute.

I would love to see more wild animals :)


Jenn said...

OH NO! I'm going to be in some serious trouble after stumbling upon your site. Your doodle stamps are too cute, and that means lots of spending for me! hehe

I would love to see some "On the Road" doodles, like for road trips, or maybe frozen treats off all sorts.

Laurie in MN said...

I don't know how you fit so much much work into your days. Whoever thinks "the advnatage of owning a business was being able to take time off whenever you want" never owned a business.

The new release set has a wonderful variety of stamps. The shack reminds me of (Mayberry RFD)Opie's clubhouse.

I enjoy county fairs so my suggestion would be a fair theme.

Thank you for thechance to win the Camp stamp set.

Laurie in MN said...


I couldn't view the sentiments in an enlarged format.
Perhaps my computer is acting up, but thought you might like to check.

An accessory set for the Camp Set could include a picnic table, blanket, picnic basket, ants, playground swing set and other equipment.

Anna said...

Wow! They are so cute! *I´m in love*

Cyndi said...

I just found you guys this past weekend and I haven't laughed so hard or had so much fun looking at stamp sets in a long time!

I would love to see more stamps aimed at stamping for the men in my life. They are really getting sick of leaves, trees, bear and deer cards.

I like the ideas for humorous pirate and fishing stamp sets.

Suped-up Tim Taylor like tools; mowers, weed eaters, leaf blowers would be cool.

I really liked the old fashioned playground themed images mentioned in an earlier comment...I have a saying that I would use for my husband on our anniversary with that one - IN THE AMUSEMENT PARK OF LIFE...YOU ARE MY FAVORITE RIDE! Ha! I have hand drawn a rollercoaster with the two of us on it and put that on the inside of the card.

Anyway just wanted to tell you guys how much I loved your stuff! Keep up the great work.


Dawn said...

LOVE them! I just found your website last night and already ordered some stuff - even my husband was head over heels about my purchase!

I've already started turning people over to your website so they can see all the fun things available!

I'm a HUGE Christmas person so more Christmas stamps are great for me. If not though, definitely sports. I haven't really found any super football (american) stamps!

Hoping this is my chance to win something for the first time!! :)

catdidit said...

I have just fallen in love with these stamps! There are sooo many cute ones I want, and this one no exception!
I would love to see some flowers with the same personality as these creatures, with little faces like they have...or some more kitties!

JIB said...

Wow so many cute stamps.

I'd love to see more occupational and sport stamps.

Thanks for the chance to win and I'll add you to my blog.


Theresa said...

OMGosh, these are so cute.

I can never get enough nature stamps, birds, flowers, trees, you name it.

Nettie said...

Wow what neat sets I see endless possiblities for using these. Sure hope I win. Loving these!


Doris said...

evelina said...

I love your stamps and I will totally spread the word! :D

I would like to see a cat collection!

Anonymous said...

I just found out about this website today and I am sooo excited!! (I already ordered 3 sets!) To elaborate on what someone else wrote I bet a pug would doodle-up just nicely! They have the BEST expressions, and they are very high and mighty for such a little dog. I'm going to use your "though small is stature he was mighty in mischief" stamp on our Christmas cards this year with a picture of our pugs!

dragonfairie said...

yes, I will spread the word. as for designs I would like to see - monsters - under the bed, in the closet, scare the kiddos monsters, my girls would love for me to stamp them some!
