newest member to the roc nicholas rubber stamp design team

i'm so happy to introduce samantha read as one of the newest members to join the roc nicholas rubber stamp design team. i adore her work.  she is very creative and enjoys rubber stamping.  she has passion for it, particularly when using stampotique stamps. that's where she was introduced to my rubber stamps and started using them.

samantha lives with poppy, her miniature schnauzer, who is her creative assistant and muse.  they live in the beautiful english countryside in worcestershire where inspiration abounds no matter what the weather. 

samantha loves trying new techniques and loves to see the transformation of a piece of white cardstock turning into something colorful and happy.  she likes to include dimensional items in her art.  being creative is a way for her to express herself and tell a story.  samantha's work is often referred to as cute, quirky and whimisical.

you can find out more about samantha at her blog, on facebook, and see more of design team work through stampotique with the stampotique designer's challenges.  

here is what samantha created using roc nicholas stamps:

a fridge magnet using dog and flying heart
an altered tin using scooter girl, dog and heart vine
a snow globe using my bird princess


  1. Already a big fan of Samantha Read's work, I am thrilled to see her join Roc's DT. Congratulations, Sam and Roc! This is a win-win for sure!
