Susanne Rose:
Social Media Manager, DT Coordinator, Stamp Designer

I'm Susanne Rose from Germany, mum of two lovely kids and a full time crafter and mixed media artist. I started painting with acrylics when I was about 15 years old. I took a break with "messing around" after my study because I started with photography and some graphic design. After my daughter was born, I became a scrapbooker and my passion started growing. Now I love creating cards, mini albums and different mixed media pieces. I am addicted to stamps, dies, colors and papers! My style is most of the time very colorful. I try to express my mood in everything I do. I am very proud to be part of this awesome and talented design team!

Donna Gray:
Stamp Designer

Hi, my name is Donna and I'm from the UK. I'm a freelance stamp designer who loves everything and anything quirky! I enjoy creating with many different types of mediums and colours and the only limit is where to store everything!

Shilpa Nagaonkar:

Hi, I am a self taught Mixed Media Artist from India. I love to create and share Art Journals, Canvas, Altered Art and everything in between. Usually my creations are vibrant, Lively and colorful. My art keeps me sane. 
Apart from art I am a voracious reader and enjoy cooking and travelling!
I am very excited to be part of this very talented team!

Helen Allen (UK)
Helen Allen will continue to make video tutorials
- including more of our popular stamp & class bundles!

My name is Helen Allen and I have a passion for all things paper crafting and love nothing better than to design a project and then to teach someone else how to make it. I teach a card making class in the real world and have great fun designing cards to explore lots of crafting techniques with my students. When I am not doing that I am busy making tutorials for my The Craft Project ETSY shop and for my You Tube Channel. When I look back over my blog it documents the huge journey I have taken learning how to share my passion for crafting on the internet. It is a wonderful place to share ideas and it is exciting to think of crafters anywhere in the world choosing to purchase my online tutorials and then having fun crafting along with me in my virtual classroom. The social media environment is an ever-changing one so it keeps me on my toes! I started my blog initially to learn how a blog works in the crafting industry. Little did I know how addictive it would be! The crafting blogging community is a caring and sharing one and I love being part of that. I am married to Ivan who I met in school in Cyprus and we have two gorgeous sons. Damian the eldest now lives in Spain and Callum the youngest who is still in school….oh…. and not to forget our crazy lovable golden retriever Comet! We have been very lucky to live in Gibraltar, Cyprus and Germany and we have loved every moment. We are now settled in the UK and the best bit about that is I finally have a craft room!!!! I am really excited to be part of the Rubber Dance team and look forward to sharing my creations with you and I am thrilled to be working with Bibi’s fabulous Rubber Dance stamps.

Dot Leathbridge:

Hi, I'm Dot Leathbridge and I live in Australia.  My 2 boys are grown now often pop in and are my greatest supports.  Love them heaps.  I live near the sea and love going out in a  whaleboat every now and then with friends.  There's nothing quite like being out on the water for clearing your mind.
My first stamp was bought at a stamp party when the kids were little and I was instantly hooked.  After a long break I started again from scratch 7 years ago. The world of stamping had changed, with new products, stamps, techniques...and it has been exciting every since.  i love experimenting with stamps and ink.  Take classes. Give classes. And generally spread the love of being crafty.
Bringing a stamp to life and having it tell a story, or give a feeling, makes me happy.

Sue Davies:

Hi, my name's Sue, known in blogland as Sue The Iron.
I've been crafting for about ten years now, and rubber stamps, ink and paint are my passions, along with stencils and pastels.
I retired from work last year so should have lots more time to play - I don't know what happened here but I seem to be busier than ever.
I'm thrilled to be joining the new Rubber Dance Challenge Team and look forward to playing with these wonderful stamps.
Here's to getting inky!

Melina Dahl:
Stamp Designer

My name is Melina and I live in Sweden with my husband and 4 children. I work as a physiotherapist.
In my spare time I love to be creative. I find it really therapeutic and is my way to charge my batteries . It all started several years ago with cardmaking and scrapbooking albums for my children. The last year, or so, I've started to play more and more with mixed media and art journaling. I love the creative process and the calmness it gives me.

Deborah Wainwright:
Stamp Designer

Hello my name is Deborah but most of my friends call me Debs. I started my crafting journey in March 2013, when I discovered the crafting world. Sure, I've always dabbled with paint and drawing since being a child, and I had a go at jewellery making a few years back, but finding out about the array of artists and products you could use to create the most wonderful art, was like being a child in a sweet shop.
My love of anything vintage, of painting and drawing, of stamping and mixed media, of crochet and felting and I could go on, has grown into a very strong passion, which I know will continue on. I cannot imagine life without being able to create, but I guess many of you feel the same. That the glue that sticks this community together and I'm so happy to be part of it. Hugs x

Gail aka ionabunny
Hi, my name is Gail, aka ionabunny, and I live in Rogaland, Norway with my partner.  I moved to Norway 10 years ago from England.  I have always enjoyed crafting, but making cards and playing with paper and colours are my favourite things to do.  I like to learn new techniques and describe my style as often simple, seldom clean.  I make mostly cards, ATC's and tags and love mixed media.  I am very pleased to be a part of the Rubber Dance design team and hope that some of you will find inspiration in the things I make.  Hugz

Anita Sæløen:
Hello, my name is Anita, I am the mother of two grownup kids and one young child and grandmother to the world's cutest grandchild of five years. I am married with Magne and together we live in the world's most beautiful city, Bergen. I've always been an artist, ever since I drew a big Garfield on the new and ugly wallpaper in my childhood bedroom .... My parents were initially outraged, but after thinking about and looking more closely at the drawing I was advised to take the arts school after primary school. That didn't happen, but I have always enjoyed drawing, painting and other crafts.
During the the last few years I have fallen madly in love with stamps and I'm addicted to the smell of rubber stamps, paper, paint and ink and being creative and making something beautiful. I am an art journal and canvas artist. I love bright colors and Mixed Media / Abstract Art. I hope and believe that I can inspire others to get into the art world - for this is both therapy, mindfullnes, meditation and immense pleasure at once. I am both proud and happy to be a part of the Rubber Dance Design Team.

Bibi Lindahl (Norway)

My name is Bibi Lindahl and I live in Norway with my two sweethearts - my man Tom and our dog, Ulla. I've been stamping since 1992 and made stamps for sale since 1999. I sold my first stamp company in 2005 when I went back to college, but 5 years later I was back at it again - making stamps out of my own nature prints before founding my current stamp company, Rubber Dance, in 2014. I could never have done this without the help of our FABULOUS Creative Team, and I am forever grateful for all the work they do, their support and enthusiasm! Same goes for the generous contributions made by several guest designers, and last, but not least, all our fans and customers! From the bottom of my heart: Thank you!! ♥
