Did someone mention a new JOFY release?!?!

..... and breeeeeaathe!... I don't have to keep it 'secret' anymore - I can talk about the new JOFY stamps, stencils and masks officially released today!  This release takes the JOFY range over the '50' mark - FIFTY TWO stamps sets!!! I can't quite believe that over the last 6 years I've designed that many - and thats not even counting the minis! phew!
I'd like to say a big THANK YOU to all you lovely peeps who have bought JOFY stamps and of course big thanks also go to the lovely uber talented team at PaperArtsy for making the stamps!...   thank you for spending your hard earned pennies on (and creating with) the JOFY range - those designs/ideas that come out of my head:
... that I draw onto paper
... that PaperArtsy turn into rubber
... that you print/stamp back onto paper .....................that's a lovely creative circle isn't it?!

This release has four new stamp sets and 4 new stencils/masks that Leandra will show you in this video..

Here are the four stamp sets:

Stamp and coordinating stencil

...and the other stencils...

PS057 (above) is a little different in that the flowers snip out and are masks (squeek) creating a stamp and stencil combination!!! (loving that just a little bit MUCH! lol)

Over on the PaperArtsy blog tonight there are lots of lovely samples using the new stamps, and here are a few more for you featuring the stencils...

These samples using the new stencil PS056 & 57 have all been made using the fabulous Fresco Finish paints and Archival black ink.

I also decorated this dinky little shadow box (6.5x4.5in)- it gives great dimension as there are 2 glass panels in the centre - lots of fun to work with.. I wanted to show you that the big image on JOFY51 can be used as a flower or as a sun..

To help with samples for this release I had two fantastic wingmen, big thanks go out to them both - Sarah Anderson - her blog is HERE - and Keren Baker - you can find her blog HERE - please go take a look at their blogs where you'll find more info on the projects they created.

Apart from here on my blog you can also find me on Twitter and Instagram @jofyjo and on Facebook www.facebook.com/JoFY.JoFirthYoung
I'm also thrilled to be a teacher on this year's Wanderlust - for details and sign up click on the Wanderlust graphic in the top right hand corner of the blog.

I hope you enjoy this new release & look forward to seeing what you create with them!



  1. Cant wait to see your product in Birmingham inn February
    Hugz from Norway

  2. These stamps and stencils are just fabulous - I know I won't be able to choose and will have to put some of them onto a list for the future! Love your samples as well as the superb work that Sarah and Keren have put in to produce such great samples too! Chrisx

  3. Jo, these are really lovely!! and I don't often say that as I have so many (unused - not JOFY of course) stamps, stencils, dies etc etc that its sometimes hard to "see" things that are new!! I can feel a purchase coming on!! Thanks for the samples too - always good to see how the designer has used the products - gets the old creatives going!!!

  4. So gorgeous Jo, and thanks again for letting me play with your stamps, even though it's been a hard secret to keep for so long!!! ;)

  5. love, love, love!

  6. I love the new release.... they are fabulous Jo

  7. Another triumph! On your samples on the Paper Artsy blog, did you go over the black stamped lines after you painted? I can't seem to achieve the richness of the original image when I've painted like you do. If you are going over the lines, what pen are you using?

  8. Love them all xxx LOL Deep sigh I will never be rich xxx

  9. Fantastic new stamps Jo and love the 2 part stencil xx

  10. Gorgeous new stamps !
