Once upon a time, I had no idea rubber stamps existed. *chuckle* Prior to staying home full-time with my children I was a high school Spanish teacher. My cousin first introduced me to stamping over 20 years ago by sending beautiful hand-made cards and is ultimately responsible for my full-blown addiction to the art form.
I have been fortunate to have many of my designs and several articles appear in popular trade publications, including Paper Crafts, Stamp It, Scrap & Stamp Arts, Stampington’s Take Ten and Stamper’s Sampler, Card Maker, Gift Maker (formerly Paper Works), and Cards magazines. Additionally, I’ve had the great privilege of serving as Design Team Coordinator for Splitcoaststampers.com from 2005-2008, and in creative/administrative capacities at A Muse Studio (formerly A Muse Artstamps) from 2003-2011.
In addition to designing/video work, I thoroughly enjoy teaching others about this delightful art form and over the last two decades, I have taught many classes here in WA state and other parts of the country. I am especially excited to be offering classes ONLINE now (YAY!!!) through HOWnow, the educational division of ellenhutson.com
I am always tickled to meet so many people from around the globe who are just as crazy about the art of rubber stamping as I am–and cards are still my favorite thing to create!
Oh, and I do love a good appletini every now and then . . . *wink!*
