RubberStampMadnesss (also known as RSM) is the original stamping magazine and the only full-color, glossy magazine devoted to this creative craft. Each issue presents a wild, wonderful world of stamp art—a world full of whimsey, beauty, creativity and color.
"Articles, ads, rubber stamp scenes and cards, techniques, reviews, glorious inspiration—that's what I love about RSM," one reader wrote in.
We hope you write or e-mail us with comments. And, please submit your stamped artwork for future issues. The RSM button at the top takes you directly to submission information.

What's New

New How tos
Three new How tos have been posted. One's about a venerable technique—embossing. This one focuses on great effects embossing on black papers. Another how to is about using bleach to remove color. The third tells how to stamp on cookies. Just click the "how tos" button at the top of this page.

Send in artwork for our new challenge. Click here to access a PDF with a window-shape just waiting for you to fill it in. The postmark due date for artwork is May 20. Additional details on the PDF.

Spring Issue
Who let the Dogs out? We did! RSM's cover and inside pages—including advertisements—have more dogs per square inch than any issue we've ever done before. And in the Dreams section you'll find out what stampers dream about—both day and night.

Best New Stamper
Susan Cureton submitted artwork for the first time to RSM's House-Shape Challenge. Her piece is titled Hi Honey, I'm Home! Susan is this issue's Best New Stamper, even though she's been stamping since 2001. Susan's stamping story appears on page 40. We'll continue to name a Best New Stamper in future issues. It could be you!
