I love finding new stamp companies, and I found quite a few at the Craft and Hobby Association Show. I will share them with you over the next few weeks.

First up is Stampavie, started in 2008 by Heidi and Stuart Johnston, who live in France (but have a US distributor).

The images, made in the USA of clear polymer, run to the cute and sweet — children, animals, nature — but they have some images of older folks that I really like.  Above is a very simple card using an image designed by Australian artist Sarah Kay.

 Stampavie — pronounced “Stampaaveee” — comes from combining the English word stamp and the French “à vie,” which means “for life” or “forever.” Which makes the name translate to: “stamp for life.” Not a bad motto!
