Sweet Grass Stamps, End of the Trip

This is our last article featuring the stamps of Sweet Grass Stamps. The team thoroughly enjoyed creating samples for Barbara, and for you, showcasing Barbara's stamps.  Sweet Grass Stamps are deeply etched, red rubber stamps, of excellent quality.  They come both mounted and unmounted. You can find Sweet Grass Stamps at the home of The Rubber Stamp Shack. Check the site out and browse through the diverse selection of stamps. There is something for everyone!

Enjoy today's trail of samples and this wrap-up of our interview with Barbara.

Q: Barbara, what inspires you when creating images for your stamps?

Barbara:  I generally have several different ideas for themed designs swirling in the murky depths of my mind, and settle on the one that comes to the surface most frequently as the one I should do next.  Once I choose a theme, I immerse myself in it, gathering hundreds of different images and designs and just playing around until I come up with what seems to fit together.  I use a mix of copyright-free clipart and my own drawings for the designs.  The Happy Girl stamp on the Chaos sheet is from a photo of my daughter.

Q: Where are the Sweet Grass Stamps produced?

Barbara:  I don't have a separate studio yet, but am spread throughout the house; my computer and paperwork is in the dining room, my studio for playing is in a corner of my bedroom, another bedroom corner is stacked with tubs of stamp sheets, and my packing table is in the upstairs hallway along with the rest of the inventory.  There are often stamps in various stages, in preparation for mounting, on my living room coffee table, where I can watch movies while spending hours cutting rubber.  Fortunately I have a very understanding and supportive husband.  My dream is to someday have my own studio, or at least a larger house!
