Darsie Bruno

I fell in love with Stampscapes when I first started making Artist Trading Cards. I picked up RubberStampMadness and saw your ad, and wanted the stamps immediately. I placed my first order with you, then ordered a second time. I began playing with the stamps and learned by trial and error.

I have been published in Rubber Stamper, Stamper's Sampler and RubberStamp Madness and have just submitted a cover scene to RSM featuring Stampscapes for their winter theme.
