{New Stamp Line!} Introducing Chris Dring Designs



Here at the STAMPlorations HQ, we're saying, "Bye, February!" with a bang: the addition of a new stamp designer. I'm so stoked to welcome Chris Dring as our latest stamp designer!

Not only is Chris a cardmarker/crafter extra-ordinaire...she also has a super sense of humor that I love! The snarky sentiments she often uses in her cards are what prompted me to ask...could she please come up with a bunch of clean snarky sentiments we could carry in the STAMPlorations store? Chris will be designing stamps (and who knows what else?) under her line, Chris Dring Designs.

Her first two stamp sets are actually here -- well, they'll be available in the store beginning March 21, but they're available to pre-order at a great price + bonus products.



Annd...on Wednesday and Thursday, she and the Inspiration girls will be showcasing her fab stamps!

Most of you know Chris already but hey, I wanted us all to know a little bit more about the woman behind all that sarcasm. So I twisted her arm-- asked her to introduce herself to all of you :o)


"I think I've always had a love of all things crafty since I can remember. From drawing stick figures and making necklaces out of macaroni noodles as a kid to taking art classes throughout middle and high school, my love of art has always been in my heart. After making a living in the real world for a few decades, I rediscovered my love of crafts when I made my first scrapbook to celebrate my parent's 50th wedding anniversary.

"I had no idea what I was doing. I just bought a bunch of paper, glue, stickers and a scrapbooking magazine. It was the beginning of my love of paper crafting. That led to card making, and I haven't looked back. I love clean and layered cards, especially with a touch (or more) of sarcasm!

"Imagine my surprise when Shery reached out to me one day and asked if I would like to design some snarky stamps. To say my jaw dropped into my lap is a huge understatement, not to mention all the Happy Dancing! After getting myself under control, I of course said YES, and here we are now. Many thanks to Shery for giving me this amazing opportunity! This is truly a dream come true, and I hope that you enjoy these stamps!"

And just to whet your appetite...here are cards she made with her stamps!







So...whaddaya think about our latest stamp designer recruit? And again, check back on Wednesday when we showcase her first stamp set!

See ya!

  3. I like the image sets. They remind me of older comic style or of the images used for sewing patterns.
