Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters, in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends. I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.
I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.
Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers.All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping. The coordinators Anne Lise and Bettina along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.
We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies. The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis. 
We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.
Fantasy artist and digital stamp designer Mitzi Sato-Wiuff started offering digital stamps in Aurora Wings shop on Etsy in May of 2013. It has experienced a phenomenal growth, thanks to your wonderful response to the unique style of art that ranges widely in terms of subject matter, style, and complexity from simple beginners' images to highly detailed, advanced colorists' images -- different from a lot of digital stamps that are available in the paper crafting industry. 
Mitzi (Her last name is pronounced sah-toe-view. It's Japanese and Danish.) is a Colorado based artist, who is originally from Japan. Her artwork shows a clear and distinct influence of vintage shojo manga (少女漫画), tattoo art, woodblock prints, and kimono textile art of her native country. Mitzi has been drawing since early childhood, playing with crayons, watercolor, colored pencil, pastel, acrylics, and more recently, digital. 
In 2010, she became a part of an artists collective, "Enchanted Visions Project", originally founded by famous fantasy artists Amy Brown and Jessica Galbreth. EV provided a wonderful opportunity to produce artwork on a regular basis and helped her portfolio grow steadily. Mitzi served for 2 years as an assistant administrator of the project, all the while staying an active contributing member. In 2011, her long-time dream of publishing a coloring book became reality with the publication of "Gardens & Goddesses" from Ellen Million Graphics.
The Aurora Wings Etsy shop and the Challenge Blog are the newest art ventures as she continues to grow, experiment, learn, and play with an open mind and child-like curiosity.

Welcome to my little corner of cyberspace. I'm Francesca and live in Rancho Cucamonga, California. I have four wonderful children, 2 granddaughters and a very understanding and godly hubby who I have been married to for almost 30 years now. 
I’m the Owner/Artist/Designer of Cute As A Button Stamps. I’ve been a crafty, artsy kind of girl since the age of 4, like forever! My dream has always been to have a career in the creative arts. I have worked both in the non-profit and in the legal corporate world for over 30 years before opening Cute As A Button Stamps, which is now my full time gig. I have been diagnosed with several debilitating sicknesses and was also laid off from work in 2013. I needed to find something that had no start up costs and could help support my family, thus, Cute As A Button Stamps was opened in 2013. We have grown and now have over 300 Digi Stamps and will be offering rubber stamps, card toppers and more items very soon.
I am also an ordained minister and have been in ministry for over 27 years and have traveled the earth sharing the Gospel of Jesus. There is nothing I love more than going about My Father's business and showing others how much He loves them and has a purpose and plan for their lives.
I am excited to share my artwork with the community and love to draw images that come to mind throughout my day and share them with you. I am not only humbled but honored to see the beautiful works of art this community makes with my images. I am so blown away and in awe of the creativity of such wonderful people.
I have such a supportive family who has been behind me since the get go. My hubby, kiddos, grandchildren, and my travels are constant inspiration for my images.
I love a life where I can make others happy but support my family and keep them happy at the same time! I’m so thankful to God for all the blessings and that thru all the unnamed obstacles during this journey.
I invite you to become a follower of my blog. I plan for great things to share with everyone. I am sure you won't want to miss any of the fun challenges we have planned. You are welcome to hang around so we can get to know each other.
All of our designs are done by owner/artist Francesca Lopez. You can visit her Challenge blog at Cute As A Button Challenge.

We are a family owned art rubber stamp company that has been in business since June of 2009. We are located in the United States in Northeastern, Ohio. We are proud to say that all of our rubber stamps are made right here in the U.S.A. We are dedicated to providing crafters around the world with some of the cutest rubber and digital stamp designs.
When Inky Impressions originally opened our doors in 2009, we only offered rubber stamps. However, after a few years and many requests from our customers, we opted to offer some of our designs in digital format. All digital stamp images are sent out at 300 DPI. Opting for digital images allows you more freedom to play with image. You can resize it, flip it and print it in any color you choose.
As for our rubber stamps, each and every stamp made is “extra deep etched” on quality red rubber for a crisp impression every time! All Inky Impressions rubber stamps are sold with EZ mount cling and come to you on a laminated 4” by 6” color card. This color card allows the customer to have a coloring reference when using the image.
Inky Impressions offers many girl and boy characters, however, our main characters are LiLi, Angelica, Nicholas and Christopher. These characters are cartoon drawings of our children.
I would like to share with you the story of how Inky Impressions was born. When I first started crafting, I would typically use die cuts and stickers, but eventually started using rubber stamps to create some of my page layouts. I have always loved the cute style! And as you probably know, finding a cute little girl or little boy stamp back in 2002, consisted of a stick figure rubber stamp that was wood mounted. It worked for the time being, but after many years, I felt the need to bring exactly what I had envisioned to life….. This is when we decided to take that leap and go for it! With much excitement, we had the website built and Inky was born. I am very proud to say that Inky Impressions was the first rubber stamp company in the world to offer characters with realistic features.
Being a stay at home mommy and wife has allowed me the opportunity and the time to devote to Inky Impressions. Without the support of my family and friends, my dream of Inky Impressions would not have been possible. I can’t even begin to express how excited I am to share my dream with you. We are devoted to you, our customers, so please feel free to share your artwork that is made with our stamps, or to just drop us a line to say hello!
I absolutely love Art & Crafts! 
I have a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts. But my first drawing lessons received from my father, he is a painter too.

My hope is that you find in my shop graphics that make you smile and inspire you to create many things. 
Just Inklined produces inky stamps (clear polymer stamps that you ink up) and printy stamps (digital stamps that you print out). That's why we're the inky, printy stamp company!

Andreia Silva, that’s the name of the artist. She’s Portuguese, to be more precise, born in Madeira Island, also known as the atlantic pearl. Land of great food, great weather and beautiful landscaping.
Since little been crazy over crayons and drawing, being one of the things that always were on her hobby list.
Being fascinated by stories, fantasy, mythology, princesses and all that, marked her style, well that and manga/anime lol! So fantasy art is her thing!
All she knows over drawing is what she had read on tutorials online and in one book or two she got from manga/anime how to draw.
Before putting some time into teaching herself on how to improve her skills, she used dolling ( A form of digital art, in which you find a base somewhere online or make your own, take it into a paint program, then draw and shade clothes on it.) as a way to express her creativity and drawing talent. She was known online as Orathty, the crazy doller over massive hairs and loads of folds, something that still proceeds with her on the drawing now. Is her style J
Andreia also loves photography, to make some manual arts such as a bit of decoupage and books.
The MoonFlower is one of her newest adventures, as dolling wasn’t enough to satisfy her growing desire to improve on her art.

I created a character called Pattieboop and her cat named Allie. I have had so much fun coming up with different images so I also created a site to sell them. You can go to my store to find out more about Pattieboop & Allie. I know you will just love them when you see them.
Pattieboop is an 11 year old girl who is very opinionated. She was created by me, Pattie Gomez, on September 7, 2009. Pattieboop is an average 11 year old and she loves dressing up. She is very petite in nature but stands tall because her mother always told her that “If you stand tall you will one day become someone important”. Pattieboop always remembers her mother’s words and makes sure she is noticed. Pattieboop has a favorite pet named Allie. Allie is a slender black cat and loves playing and spending time with Pattieboop. Allie spends most of her days napping and her nights are spent getting in to mischief…
I have added many other images to my store in the past few years. I know have a large selection of images to fit everyone’s needs.

Our Story: 
We are a small, family-owned, Christian company offering exclusive hand-drawn images in both clear and digital stamps to the paper crafting community. 
We got our start back in November of 2007 when Korin was searching for a knight stamp to use for our son's 5th birthday party invitations. The search failed so she decided to draw one herself and, as they say, the rest is history. :) 
That first knight drawing became our first stamp set, which turned into four stamp sets, which soon became many, many stamp sets. 
In addition to our "sweet 'n sassy" images and sentiments, we pride ourselves in offering many KJV scripture stamps. Our personal conviction is that the KJV Bible is the most accurate and we found the industry really lacking in this area, so we decided to do something about it. God's Word is so important to us and we love sharing it with others in this way! 
In February 2009, we introduced digital stamps to our line and what a blessing that was! It opened up a whole new market for us and allowed us to bring even more of our exclusive images to our customers. 
In Fall 2011, we introduced our first die set and it was a huge hit. We have since added others to our die line but only gradually, as they are more expensive to manufacture. We look forward to bringing you more fabulous die designs in the future! 
It has been an amazing journey thus far full of countless blessings and we can't wait to see where the Lord leads next! We invite you join us as we continue on this exciting journey! 
Because He lives, 
Korin & Dan Sutherland
