Fabulous Dogs!

We would like to introduce you to the newest members to the Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co Senior Design Team. Make sure to stop by their blogs and give them some love.


I am self-taught, although I have taken many classes from some of my favorite artists. I have been teaching rubber stamping around my state for over 10 years and love it. I demo at rubber stamp conventions in the tri-state area whenever possible. At a rubber stamp convention years ago, I was asked to send in a sample for publication while demoing at a convention in New Jersey. I have since had my work published in Vamp Stamp News, The Stamper's Sampler, Somerset Gallery, The Rubber Stamper and Scrap & Stamp Art.

As of April 2012 I will be joining the SR design team of Mark’s Finest Papers. I was on the Creative Crew for the stamp company Lasting Impressions with Panache from June 2005 to 2008 and the design team for Faerie Song Art Stamps in May 2008 to February 2012. Sunday International is another design team I have had the privilege to be associated.

My passion right now is creating unique postcards and hand stamped greeting cards. Other interests are carving my own stamps, bookmaking, beading and discovering new techniques to share.

On a personal note I'm married and live in Connecticut. My art is inspired by the mood I happen to be in at that moment. When it comes to art I like to say what is old is new again and there are no mistakes in rubber stamping just happy accidents.

Stamp It! Use It! Create It!

   Kelly Hull, From Olympia, WA

Hello! KelliJo here! I am a stamper since 1992 when I first saw Gold Embossing powder melt and it grabbed my heart! I decided that stamping my own Christmas cards would save me a ton of money, and, well.... here I am! Sound Familiar? I am the mother to two "Bubba" my son who is 20 and "Chuck" my daughter who is 17. Sports take up my non working hours, my daughter is an avid Fast pitch player and we travel all over, so I work Grave yard shift as a Correctional Officer and keep the same hours for my stamping time. I am THRILLED to be a part of the Marks Finest Papers-A Heinrich Company Design Team! Warm, Loving and OH SO AWESOME is what this company is!!!!

Creating cards is my escape from the technical world I live in during the day.I am happily married to Dave who I have known since I was 17. Fortunately he supports me in my creative endeavours by making positive comments when he looks up from the football and by buying me great crafting gifts.

I am an active senior living on the east coast. I stamp because my daughter got me hooked. We stamp together when possible. I have many grandchildren. This one is a sweet little thing. I have her parents' permission to have her photo here.

I am a mom to 3 wonderful kids, and married to the love of my life. My wonderful hubby is very, very good at feigning interest everytime I make something and just have to show him!! lol. I have been blessed with the most wonderful stamping buddies.
