Welcome Our October Guest Designers

Stampotique Originals is THRILLED beyond belief to have not one, but TWO guest designers this month!  
Here is a little bit about each of them and you will love what they will be sharing this month for both our challenges and some additional projects they each created!  Watch out for their debut's next week.




Roc Nicholas is a self taught artist who lives in Brodheadsville, Pennsylvania.   She works out of her home based art studio wheres she also teaches art and stamping classes. She loves to experiment and uses a variety of different media, but loves to include rubber stamps, when creating her art. Roc was a contributor to the book “Good Mail Day: A Primer for making Eye-Popping Postal Art” as well as other art and international stamping magazines. You can see more of her art on her blog at www.whatsuproc.blogspot.com

And one of Stampotique's very own designers is joining us this month as well:



Mixed-media artist Amy Wellenstein is drawn to the printed word, the graphic image, and the stories they tell when combined.  She specializes in collage, jewelry, and paper arts.  Formally trained in metalsmithing, Amy constructs intimate contemporary pieces of sterling silver filled with bits of ephemera, found objects, and vintage beads.  The results are tiny narratives to bless and adorn the wearer.
Since 2001, Amy has taught collage, jewelry, and paper arts workshops in Arizona, California, and New England.  Her work has been featured in Somerset Studio magazine, several books, and other paper arts publications.

Amy lives in Peoria, Arizona with her scuba-diving husband and TWITCH the cat.
