New Artistic Guide on the Trail!


We are so excited to welcome our newest member of the design team and introduce her to you!

By day, Sue Trembeth is a meek and mild Center Director for a busy outpatient endoscopy unit. By night, though, look out! She becomes 'Sue the Stamper!'  She began stamping 13 years ago, and for the past 10 has taught at local stamp stores and stamp conventions. She owns her own teaching business called the Creative Studio.

Sue is a published artist appearing in the Rubber Stamper, Crafts-n-Things, and Somerset Studio's Material Visions, where she has an art quilt featured. She is also Ranger certified in inks and embossing powders. So, you know whom to  ask those tough questions pertaining to inks and embossing powders!

Sue lives with her husband, George, who encourages her artistic endeavors and "tells the truth" about her art, along with their three cats, just outside of Philadelphia in Narberth, Pennsylvania. 

Sue says that while she will go outside the box and create a variety of projects, her favorite pursuit is creating cards and playing with inks.  

Sue shared three projects with her application for a position on our design team, and we would like to share them with you. She tells us  several people have told her she has a unique style, but she doesn't see it.  We agree. Yes, Sue, you do have a unique style, and we love it! Can you see her style? 

Sue's motto is:  "Stamp EVERY DAY and try EVERYTHING!" 

 Be watching for her first Artistic Guide projects in June.  Until then you can check out her sketch cards beginning with the March sketch.



Make Every Day....
By: Sue Trembeth, Artistic Guide

Finished Size:  4.25" x 5.5"

Row Houses, N182 (Stampendous)
Every day to Remember,  C3310 (Hero Arts)
Cream cardstock 8.5" x 5.5", folded in half. This is your base card.
Acetate,  cut to 4" x 2.5"
Red cardstock, cut to 4.25" x 2.75" inches
Green textured cardstock, cut to  4" x 5.25"
Acrylic paint #23875, Honeydew (Making Memories)
StazOn Black ink (Tsukineko)
Colored pencils
Foam tape
Foam Brush


  1. Brush the acrylic paint across the acetate with a foam brush. You do not need to be perfect. You just need a swath of color. Let dry.
  2. Stamp the row house stamp on top of the dry paint on your piece of acetate with the black StazOn ink. Make sure you stamp on the actual painted side. This will give you the tooth you need to color the houses.
  3. Gently color the houses with your colored pencils. It helps if your colored pencils are not freshly sharpened. They should have a dull point.
  4. Adhere the green card stock to your folded cream card.
  5. Place the foam tape on the back of the acetate piece where it will not show. Attach this piece to the red card stock.
  6. Adhere the red card stock to the green piece.
  7. Stamp the saying in the lower right corner with the StazOn black ink.

She always provided step by step instructions that were easy to follow. I'm looking forward to June when Sue t guides all on what I know will be a fun, creative trail.
