guest designer for the roc nicholas rubber stamp team

Meet Astrid Stulemiejer.  She is 34 years young and lives with her husband and son in the south of The Netherlands.  She is full time mom, not necessarily by choice, but she enjoys being home.  She thought being at home would provide her a lot of time to create, but she confesses she is busier than ever.

Astrid's mother got cancer in 2007 and she began to journal to deal with the process of her mom's illness and her significant loss.  She credits journaling in helping her let go of things in her life.  Besides journaling Astrid also loves making cards.  She generously sends them through a foundation to sick people.

Astrid joined the Stampotique Design Team in 2012 which was a dream come true.  She is such a big fan of the Stampotique rubber stamps.

As you can see, Astrid's work is extremely olorful.  She loves using contrasting colors.  Her favorite medium is Dylusions spray, and when she does her art journaling she really enjoys using her Gelli Plate.

I personally love Astrid's art.  It is bright, cheerful and beautifully done.  It is an honor to have her use my rubber stamps in her many creations.  I couldn't be more enthusiastic about her art.  She has a true gift!

Astrid used my i'm learning to fly text rubber stamp and my flying pig stamp to create this lovely page.
How adorable is this matchbox!  To create it Astrid used my bird lady rubber stamp and my just be u text stamp.
Look at this beautiful piece of art !  Aren't the colors amazing?!  To make it Astrid used my daisyhead rubber stamp.
