Jane-LuxemBest New Stamper
This issue’s Best New Stamper is Jane Luxem of Kronenwetter, Wisconsin. Her friend, Pat Schultz, encouraged her to submit a beautiful travel tag—the rest is history.

Stamp Show Feature
The Summer issue includes a report on the Hamburg, NY, Convention, organized by StampScrapArtTours. Jackie Shenise stopped by and had a blast. Excerpts from her report follow. (The full report can be found in the Summer issue.)

Dave Miller of Rubbernecker Stamps demonstrated how to use Ken Oliver's Color Burst watercolor powders with his own company's flower stamp sets. These powders make beautiful backgrounds, as well as look great on individual images.

Ted Cutts, owner of Stampers Anonymous, Darcie, Inky Antics and Art Gone Wild, demonstrated how to make special tags. He incorporated various Distress products, including pads and stains. His 3-D tag was masterfully done.

Stacy Rich, owner of Stacy Stamps, demonstrated how to use color in a variety of ways—she even used her finger to make trees! Stacy’s stamp line is suitable for coloring with any media. Most of her stamps already include shading, which makes for a satisfying coloring experience.

Stamplistic owner Jennifer Jantek described her Ohio store as "a place to learn any paper crafting technique." Stamplistic also has an online presence and a unique stamp line. One of the company's most popular stamps series is called Design Squares.
