Michele KosciolekBest New Stamper
This issue’s Best New Stamper is Michele Kosciolek of Canton, Michigan. Her stamp art is part of the Film Strip Challenge. What especially impressed us about her piece was the unusual way she approached the challenge—she added real film strips to her art.

Company Features
The Spring issue includes information about Rosie’s Roadshow.

“Stampers tell me they love the small images, clean and simple designs and different expressions and they don't need a lot of tools to make fun cards,” says owner Linda Presley, who designs the whimsical animals, people, objects and landscape elements and bevy of quirky sentiments befitting every theme and season.

Images come in different sizes and left and right views, so creating cute scenes is a breeze. The unadorned designs provide stampers unlimited creativity and opportunity to express their own unique touch by using colored pencils and markers or even paper-piecing techniques to add color, design and detail to make images come alive.

Quite simply, Rosie’s animals are just darn cute. You can see these images in the issue’s Spotlight column, as well as on the Letters to the Editor page, where they were used by Linda Berge for a seasonal comic strip.

Handmade in the Pacific Northwest, the red rubber stamps are mounted on crushed red rubber cushion and affixed to smooth, high-quality wood mounts. Presley adds, “We won’t be joining the clear and unmounted parade.”
