The summer edition of RubberStampMadness Magazine is out


Okay everyone, cover your ears while I squeal and stomp about in a mad happy dance!

My Summer issue (Issue 176, Vol 34) of RubberStampMadness (RSM) magazine just arrived in the mail, and it is awesome!  Not the least because I have two pieces of my artwork in it.

The inside cover has the ad I did for Viva Las Vegastamps! Every scrap of the page.  There isn’t even a white border, lol.  I own that page. (Cover your ears.  I’m squealing again!  I’m so excited–can you tell?)

The second bit is on page 47, and I’m sharing it with other talented members of the Viva Las Vegastamps! Design Team.  Beautiful cards by Terri Sproul, Lyneen Jesse, and Susan M. Brown are sitting on a background done by yours truly.  The design was done by Crea8tive Compass and it’s … can I use the word ‘awesome’ again?  It’s beyond awesome!

The themes for this issue are Family, Steampunk, and Composition.  The articles:

Editor’s Space: Rubberta’s highest priority

Tips & Techniques: Adding borders with puff paint

Card Shoppe: Mastering the Art of Framing

Spotlight: Exciting new stamps & products

Welcome to Carvonia: Carvers swap their art

Steampunk: Move over, Jules Verne

Perfectly Composed: Stamping elaborate scenes

Coloring with PanPastels:

Quick Cards: Stamping with hot colors

Where the Stamps are: The best stamp stores

Short Takes

Bulletin Board

Submitting artwork to RSM

Reinker: Cards for Father’s Day & the 4th of July

Pyramid Dolls: The Queen gets a royal treatment

Cover Artist: Anne Schuster’s Steampunk creation is just gear-fab

I want to thank Wayne Gartley for thinking of me when planning his advertisements, and Angela and Jenna from RSM for helping me through the technicalities.  They did a marvelous job setting up my artwork!

The magazine is due to arrive in stores soon, but meanwhile, you can subscribe or order single issues from the magazine subscription department or order a copy from Viva Las Vegastamps! while you’re ordering some stamps.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
