Roni Johnson - Indiana, USA
I’m Roni (Veronica) Johnson from Albion, Indiana. I am a lifelong artist and author of the daily rubber stamping, mixed media collage & altered art blog, Ink Stains with Roni. I am the author of the book, Teach Yourself Visually – Collage & Altered Arts. Like my blog, this book is technique-oriented and encompasses a wide variety of projects, mediums, and techniques. My favorite medium is ink… hence the name of my blog, Ink Stains.
When I’m not creating for my blog or design teams I enjoy teaching others about the joys of ink, paper, and mixed media, spending time with my family on our small farm in rural Indiana, scouring various flea markets or antique malls for unique vintage finds, reading and pursuing my love of photography.

Desiree Kuemmerle - Pennsylvania, USA
Hi there! My name is Desiree and since about the time I spoke my first word, I’ve been an avid crafter alongside my mom and sister. You name the craft and I’ve probably made it and collected it. Paper is fascinating to me! We can do so much with and to it to create beautiful art, of course with our own twist! I simply find so much joy and excitement in working with my hands and spreading this art with so many through my blog, Include a Thank You…and then some! and my YouTube channel by the same name. So let’s dig in and ALWAYS… BE CREATIVE!

Rebecca Walton - North Carolina, USA
Hello friends! My name is Rebecca Walton and I work with my husband Donny in this fabulous little company making rubber stamps.
I’m a latecomer to paper crafting, in fact, I only started making cards just a few short years ago. There’s always something new to learn and I like to look back on some of my first cards just to see how far I’ve come. I’m an anti-hoarder by nature which I’m sure limits my creativity, but it shows that it’s possible to make lovely things with few supplies.
I enjoy sharing with you what I’ve learned and I look forward to making some cards with you soon!
Our Design Friends
Our Design Friends are artists that we’ve developed friendships with over the years, we value the work that they do and we want to share their creativity with our customers. We send our Design Friends our stamps and they use them at their own discretion and in their own way.
Susana Magenheimer - California, USA
My name is Susana Magenheimer. I am primarily on Instagram and YouTube as RandomArtist222. I have been in the arts and crafts industry since 2008, I am a designer, and I have been published. I have been creating since I could hold a Crayola crayon. Although I am a lover of all art forms, my loves are drawing and mixed media. My joy also comes from repurposing products and finding cool new products.

Sandy Parker - Pennsylvania, USA
Hi, I’m Sandy Parker! I started our YouTube channel, Crafting for Almost Everyone because I couldn’t find anyone on YouTube that could tell me what tools would work for someone with hand/wrist issues, and it was frustrating. And it wasn’t just that…I thought about all of the people with similar issues who wouldn’t be able to find the right tools either, and it made me frustrated. I bought so many tools that didn’t work for me and decided we needed a voice on YouTube that could share which tools work and which do not. I never thought my channel would find an audience, but after three years and over 13,000 subscribers, I’m proud of how the channel has grown, and the wonderful friends I’ve made because of it.

In order for people to learn about the wonderful world of peg stamping, we sponsor influencers who use our stamps in their projects. Sponsoring means that we pay the artist for creating the tutorial. There are many artists willing to work with companies like ours, however, we only sponsor artists who truly love our products and we give minimal to no input on which stamps the artist uses or how they are used.
Lindsay Weirich - The Frugal Crafter - Maine, USA
Lindsay Weirich lives in Maine with her husband and three children and she creates every day! She enjoys painting, stamping, and everything in between.
Her passion is teaching art, which she does daily on her blog, The Frugal Crafter, her YouTube channel of the same name, and through her online classes. Lindsay’s work has appeared in dozens of print, painting, and craft publications and she has illustrated two children’s books, The Rainbow Pants and Sea Glass and the Lighthouse, both by Kelly Brooks-Bay.
Rubber Stamp Tapestry is proud to produce Lindsay’s line of unmounted stamps, which she designed for us to be used especially with our peg stamps!
