Stamp Illustrators

I'm a Filipino-American who currently calls beautiful Croatia my home. I'm blessed to be a wife to my best friend and mom to three sweet girls. Life and ministry keep me busy, but I always find time for crafts. I enjoy making cards that I like to send out and give away. I joined the paper crafting community in 2009 when I started my blog, Crafting in Croatia.

I have worked as a stamp illustrator/product designer for Layers of Color Art Stamps, Gina K Designs, There She Goes Stamps and Spellbinder Paper Arts. As a former science geek, I didn't know my artistic side until I started drawing for my girls to color. I got the courage to submit my illustrations to stamp companies (which I had to Google since I was only familiar with Stampin' Up!) for consideration. Surprisingly, most of them responded positively and I have enjoyed making cards with my own illustrations ever since. I have since expanded to die designs and I'm thrilled to work with Spellbinders Paper Arts creating die cuts for paper crafters.

I want to thank Lisa for the opportunity to design stamps for The Craft's Meow. I'm honored to be a part of TCM from the beginning. And what a treat for me to work with the talented Sarah and Alice also. God has given me a full life and I can't thank Him enough for the countless ways He blesses me everyday.

I'm a graphic designer by trade, wife, mama to two energetic young boys, and always a crafter at heart. I like to expand my boundaries by experimenting and showcasing the capabilities of each stamp set I pick up. I'm quite fond of the clean and simple design style. I'm so very excited to have the opportunity here at The Craft's Meow to bring you stamp sets that are chic, charming and practical!

Hi! I’m Mabelle, doodler of little happy things. Native from the enchanted Caribbean island of Puerto Rico, I now call sunny Florida, USA my home. I’m mom to two wonderful kids and wife to my dear college sweetheart. As early as I can remember I have loved to draw and color. I’m now a graphic designer and illustrator.

I discovered stamping back in 1996 while working on a children’s book illustration project. In 1998 I began licensing my rubber stamp designs with The Angel Company. I recently expanded my designs into digital stamps. 

Is my prayer that my art will be an instrument of blessing in the midst of our hectic lives and they bring joy.

Thank you Lisa, for this wonderful opportunity. I’m so happy to be part The Craft’s Meow family!

I live and work in Cleveland, Ohio. I graduated from Kent State University with a BFA in visual communication design and have been working as an art director for an advertising agency ever since. I have huge love for typography, all things vintage, buttons and cats.

I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where I spent most of my childhood singing and drawling doodles on any surface I could find. Honestly, I still spend most of my time like that. Instead now my doodles transform into wedding invitations, stationary, logos, and stamps! I am thrilled to be joining The Craft's Meow team and am so inspired by all involved.

Hi! My name is Clare Buswell. Niall and I live in the southwest of Ireland in the countryside with our lovely 5-year-old daughter Isabelle.

I've always been creative in some form or another. I have a passion for painting and I've tried lots of different crafts over the years. I love quilling and making my own embellishments. I studied graphic design at art college. I only discovered stamping after the birth of my daughter when I had little time for painting but longed to be creative. Card making was the perfect answer for me as it satisfied all my creative needs. I haven’t looked back since. I’ve been lucky enough to have my work published in Paper Crafts, CARDS and CardMaker magazines in the US and I design regularly for Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine in the UK.

When I’m not paper-crafting I love to spend my time gardening, baking, and with my family. 

I'm from Southern California where I was born and raised. Me and my hubby have 3 beautiful children. 1 boy and 2 girls. I have had the pleasure of being a stay at home mother up until recently. I have many jobs. A full time mother and housewife being my number 1 job. I love to cook and I'm a total clean freak! I am also a part time server at a restaurant. I love to read romance books -- although time hasn't allowed me lately. I don't watch too much TV. I love Romantic Comedy movies.

I started paper crafting almost 7 years ago, with Stampin' Up! I quickly discovered a whole new stamping world. I made goals of being on design teams and getting published. I've been lucky enough to make some wonderful and amazing friends who have given me some amazing opportunities. Diana Crick opened a door to me by adding me to her amazing design team, I was able to work my first CHA at the Scor-pal/Mini Magnolia booth, where I met one of my dearest friends Angie Hunt. I now design stamps and also have a few paper collections with Little Darlings. I have also met Suzanne Dean, the owner and creator of Color me Creative. I teach a few classes on her website. I've also made some wonderful friends with my design team mates--my idols! I have my own digi papers which I sell in my Etsy Store and  this past year I  have started to teach Copic Coloring at scrap stores in Southern California. . as you see I'm very busy!

I'm so excited to start this new venture with Lisa and The Crafts Meow. This is going to be so much fun. I can't wait to make more friends and show you all my creations!

Angelica Suarez

Hi! I'm Angelica, an illustrator, graphic designer and full time thinker-upper who can't sit still for more than a few minutes. While it's hard to think of a task I wouldn't take on, I'd say just creating all day keeps me very content. 

I'm a child of God in awe of all the ways he reveals himself in my life, in my family, and in my art. I am truly blessed to live in Wisconsin with my other half, Jorge, who keeps me sane. We have two precious little girls, Lucy and Marlee, who have given me my greatest gift of all - motherhood. 

As a creative enthusiast, it's my joy to use all different kinds of media to tell stories, and explore new ways to communicate the gifts of life and love. I hope you will find my illustrations and designs a tool to help you tell your stories, too. Thank you so much to Lisa for providing this platform to share my heart through my designs with you!
