Welcome to the Rubber Art Stamping Newsletter!
This newsletter will update you on the weekís articles and answer some of the questions I have received. If you have any questions on the different techniques or anything to do with stamping, donít hesitate to contact me. I will answer all emails and your question could be featured in the weekly newsletter.
There will also be a weekly technique featured, such as masking, embossing, use of alcohol inks, backgrounds and the altering of items just to name a few. There are thousands of different ways to use all the great items available to us today, and getting familiar with the new items is always great fun.
I will also feature regional rubber stamp events which take place around the country and the world. You never know, there may be one in your area. If there is, it is an experience you will not want to miss. Some of the best stamp artists in the world are featured at these events.
Seasonal stamping ideas are another thing that will be featured, to give you some ideas and help you to not forget those special (and sometimes not so special) events. You can not only send out cards for birthdays, anniversaries, and Christmas, but also for things such as thinking of you, just because, or even national pickle day. (We canít forget that one!)
Art Stamping is not just for card making and scrapbooking, it can be used on almost anything, and we will explore many things that can be beautifully enhanced by the use of stamps. We will cover things such as stamping of candles and lampshades, to making beautiful handmade stamped jewelry and clothing.
I will also be showing off artist (meaning you) contributions every week in the newsletter, so donít hesitate to send me your work as well as your questions. Never be afraid that your work is not good enough. I hear that often, and it is simply never true. Everyone has an artist inside and we all grow and change our techniques and abilities over time.
There is no end to the things we can do, and in the months to come we will cover any techniques you want us to. Just send me an email and we will grow our talents and abilities together.
This will be an exciting journey for us all, and it will only be better with your input. This newsletter is for you, and I look forward to you helping to guide us.
And, in closing, I want to let you know that we will never sell or give out any email addresses, so you can rest assured that your email is safe with us.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
