Mix Your Media!

Hello Stampers!  It’s me, Christine, with my very first blog post on Stamper’s Quest.  Actually, it’s my very first blog post EVER!  I’m here today to give you some advice.  Health is a big topic in the media these days with headlines like “Take Your Vitamins” and “Eat Your Cheerios.”  Think of it as a prescription […]

Castaway Ink Pad Review

Jacquard’s Castaway Pad By: Susan Wolf Caplan, Product Guru Do you like the look of bleach on your artwork, but don’t like the odor?  Jacquard came out with an ingenious idea for a stamp pad a few years ago called the Castaway pad.  This pad is supposed to allow you to get the same bleached […]

May Featured Artist, more conversation with Evelyn Spikes

This month we are continuing our conversation with Evelyn, and featuring another one of her wonderful creations – an altered slide mailer… Stamping is my ‘art of choice,’ but I also play with altered items, as my slide mailer tutorial describes. A corner of a former tiny bedroom has grown into a mess of papers, […]

Too Busy Dusting

Throughout the Color Conversations with Darlene Domel DVD, Darlene’s wit and humor just gets better and better.  Darlene’s little tips for using large background stamps, what product to use to get ink off your fingers, how to save money and more, are some of the best tips I’ve heard in a long time.  The best laugh […]

Dusting Stripes

I had some fun today playing with the “stripes” technique from Color Conversations.  Darlene shares a really cool tip about making sure stripes are masked off evenly in chapter 6 of the DVD.  As with most of her tips, it has to do with Eclipse tape and is easy and practical. Darlene also uses the […]

Dusting the Color

For months now I’ve been struggling with my art and the creative processes. There are so many products on the market, it seems there is a doodad for this and a doodad for that; a tool for this and a tool for that; inks for this, paints for that; and, a patterned paper for just […]

Dusting Can Be Fun?

Darlene Domel, in her 2008 DVD Color Conversations, shows how any stamper can become an expert at dusting and taping. Of course, the DVD (from StampLand Chicago) is all about stamping and not housework. Darlene herself says, “I am so not a domestic goddess.” The dusting in the DVD is all about color dusting, a […]
