Pia - Pippin's Stampscapes

My name is Pia, but I call myself Pippin in most places concerning crafts. I live in beautiful Lapland in the northern parts of Sweden with my husband Michael and our cutie dog Cindy.

I have been making cards since 2006 and I love it. I have always been crafting in some ways. I have made my own clothes since I was about 12 years old. I also make jewelry and I paint, mostly water colours. Scenic stamping is my absolute favourite, and I first discovered Beeswax Rubber Stamps in 2007. Then Stampscapes came into my world, and I just love them. I often incorporate different stamp brands into my scenes, often stamps that are not intended for scenic stamping. I see it as a challenge for myself to use as many different stamps as possible, also digital stamps. Sometimes I even draw my own pictures if I don't have a suitable stamp for my scene.  

I am very happy to be a part of this fantastic design team.

Hello, my name is Rachel Fisher. I'm a 44 year old mum of two young girls - Lucy who is 6 and Penny who will be 5 when this hits the blogs! I'm very happily married to Shaun who is a physics Professor and we live in the Lune Valley in Lancashire. 

I run - this year I'm running the great North run for Asthma UK. I do aerobics classes. I run a pack of Rainbows and chair the PTA at the girls' school. I also go into the school one morning a week to hear the children read and also run a gardening club at school. 

When I have time I love to craft - stamping is my passion - recently I've been doing the Chemistry 101 course by Tim Holtz and I'm loving every minute of it!

Sue - Sue's Crafty Corner

Hi name is Sue, I'm 52 and I live in the North of Hampshire in the UK, along with my Husband Steve of 33 years. I have two grown up Children Vicky 29 and Martin 26, Vicky lives with her partner and Martin still lives at home.

I've been crafting most of my life, starting with knitting and sewing, something that both my Mother and Grandmother taught me to do. As I've got older I've tried lots of different crafts, some for a short time and some that have lasted longer. 

I've been card making for about 10 years now, I started with CD's and very quickly
found myself buying stamps and ink pads. This is now my passion, although I do enjoy a good book, and like to travel when funds allow.

Dora - Craft Corner

My name is Margaret, and I have been (and still am) happily married to Geoff for over 40 years. Both our children are now married and have given us lovely grandchildren to play with. After years of having nutty Burmese cats, we now have two even nuttier working cocker spaniels to keep us busy and amused. 

I have been crafting in some way most of my life, knitting, crochet, embroidery, cross stitch and anything else around.  I do have a real butterfly mind, and like to vary what I do.

I only got started on card making 4 years ago when we were asked to do the wedding invitations for our son's wedding. The design was very plain and simple, with gold peel off stickers - just what they asked for, and carried through to the place cards and thank you cards.  Of course, I bought far too many cards and far too many peel offs, so what do you do in that case..... you've got it - you buy more stuff to help you use it all up. Then you need more equipment and more stuff because you do not quite have the right colour to do the next project. And so it goes on until the craft box becomes a craft room to give you space to work, then you find you are restricted to a small area to sit because the stuff has taken over.   Then you move into a craft room and still end up in a small space to work in.  It is so addictive.

I tend to mix techniques and styles, decoupage, stamping and digi stamping.  My stamps all tend to be from British designers, especially Clarity Stamps which are such good quality, Stampsaway and Sheena Douglas.  I do have a couple of Stampscapes, and have mixed them with other stamps to make a card.  It is such good fun to take a number of stamps and create a landscape from them.

My name is Anna-Karin and I have been doing arts and crafts my whole life, but paper crafting is the one that has totally captured my heart and mind. I have been making cards since 2002, when I got the idea of making my own Christmas cards. It turned out to be a brilliant idea and cardmaking has given me numerous hours of fun since then. I got my first stamp that same year and stamping is what I enjoy the most. My stamps are my absolute favorite tools and I love creating something using only white paper, stamps and ink. I love trying out new and old techniques, to experiment and try different products and tools.

Scenic stamping is probably my favourite type of stamping. It is so wonderful to be able to create my own natural environments and my head is full of scenes waiting to be stamped. I use Stampscapes, Sutter and sometimes also Beeswax stamps, also mixing in my other ‘non-scenic’ stamps into my scenes sometimes. I love all stamps, but if I had to choose, Stampscapes are my favourites. I was very happy when Kevin from Stampscapes published 6 of my scenes as idea cards.

After having posted my cards and layouts on Flickr and Two Peas for a long time, I started a blog last year, it’s a lot of fun.  I try to make scenic stamping more known by regularly including it in my design team work, as well as at the Stamping Board at Two Peas in a Bucket, where I have been an active member for a long time now.


Hi, I am Nancy or NancyD for challenges that I enter.  I love card making and have been doing it starting back in the 80's (with my mom) when there weren't many companies making stamps.  I remember seeing some of Kevin's designs in the early 90's but wasn't interested in making scenes at that time.

My husband of 35 years and I have raised four wonderful children and we now of five grandchildren with one more on the way (due end of May).  Along the way, I sewed, made cloth dolls, cross-stitched, made quilts, knitted and crocheted up a storm.  Now I mostly knit and make cards.

I found Split Coast Stampers few years ago and started entering challenges.  Then I discovered the world of blogging and decided I needed to join this special group of crafters.  The whole process has improved my card making ability and transformed me from a CASE artist to a designer with lots more to learn. I am currently designing for Digital Delights, and finishing my terms with Critter Sketch and Paper Cutz .

I became re-acquainted with Stampscapes when I won a sheet of rubber (Stampscapes # 8) from my blogging friend Sheree (who also lives about 30 minutes away).  I started making scenes and fell in love with stamping all over again.  You can visit my blog at:
