Lisa started stamping during graduate school in 1994 when she discovered that stamps were a creative – and economical — way to create cards and keep in touch with friends and family. In 2005 Lisa was invited to create card samples for the Hero Arts catalog. This was such fun that in 2006 she left her job as a software engineer to work for Hero Arts full time.
Lisa’s work has been published in several magazines, including Paper Crafts, Somerset Studio, The Stampers’ Sampler, Take Ten and Rubberstampmadness. She was on the design team for The Rubber Stamper Magazine for two years and won several Hero Arts contests.
Lisa and her husband Jason live in Austin, Texas, with their two goldfish, Smiley and Woodfin. When she’s not stamping, Lisa enjoys hiking, riding her road bike or mountain bike, photographing native plants, and working to preserve Texas prairies.
Lisa speaks to us below:
This time I used the washi tape as a “ground” — love doing this with all kinds of stamps, helps make it so elements aren’t “floating”.
Another trick is to ink the whole stamp with neon orange, then wipe off the stem and color it with a brown marker. And one last trick! I stamped the message bubble (in white) from the Simon Says Stamp For the Record set as a cloud :)
Thank you to Lisa Spangler for creating these cheerful cards for our inspiration! Be sure to check out her blog. She may or may not ;) have a coupon code for 25% off washi tape in our Simon Says Stamp Store…hint hint!
