Goodbye to May, hello June, a brand new team of Guest Designers

Good morning everybody!

It is the first day of June so we are welcoming our new team of fabulous Guest Designers! We both love this moment of the month but also dread it a little because though it means welcoming some lovely new faces it also means saying goodbye to the people we loved working with in the previous month. And we LOVED our May team, it was a warm and very talented one and each and every one of these ladies surprised us with GORGEOUS creations. So before we introduce you to our new team please let us thank the lovely Anke Soeters, Elise Dinolfo, Jacqui Bourne, Louise Fraenell and Shelly Stead for their fabulous work this past month. No goodbyes ladies just a VERY big thank you and we'll stay in touch! Also a HUGE thank you to the amazing Deb Routledge who's gorgeous work we had the pleasure of showing this past month, the fun part of having Whimsy Guest Designers is that we know we'll still get to enjoy cards created by them with Wee Stamps and we are certainly going to love seeing new creations by you Deb!

And then now on to the happy part, please let us introduce our fabulous new team of Guest Designers:


Hi everyone! My name is Maya Stenshagen and i am a 38 year old coloring addict from Norway. I live outside Lillehammer with my dear husband, Morten and our 3 chinese crested dogs. I use all my spare time in my craftroom, and i have a been papercrafting since early 2007. I love all coloring mediums, and switch between Distress Inks, Distress Markers, Prisma coloring pencils, and Letraset Pro/Flex/Tria markers. I usually make cards, and they always contains of a colored image. Sometimes I also makes layouts, but cards is my passion!I am so honored to be one of the lucky ones to get a Guest Designer spot at Wee Stamps, as i love those images to bits! They are a joy to color up ♥
With love, Maya ♥

Hello dear Wee friends! My name is Wenche and I live in a small town in Norway. I was slowly drawn into this delightful and "crazy" stamp world in late 2008. And it was in 2010, when I got my blog up and running, that I really got hooked. Coloring is the part I enjoy the most, and I use Prismacolor Pencils, ProMarkers and Distress refills. My style is mostly vintage / shabby chic, but I like to try new styles and techniques sometimes. I love to make cards with some kind of folding technique or make other kinds of paper projects as baskets or boxes.
I’m so proud and honored to be a guest designer for Wee Stamps this month and I’m really looking forward to work with these beautiful stamps ♥
Hugs, Wenche

Hello Everyone, my name is Sue.
I am happily married and have three wonderful teenage children who I'm so proud of and mean the world to me. We live in West Sussex which is on the South Coast of England.
I have always enjoyed everything and anything crafty and now my children are a bit older I have more 'me' time to spend doing something I love. My main passion is stamping and card making but I'll try my hand at most things!
I LOVE Wee stamps, the images are all so beautiful and it really is a huge honour to be a Guest Designer this month.

I have been card making for about 5 years, but only started stamping and bloging in March 2012, that was after I found Bev Rochester's site and a card she had made. It was 'Wee Heidi', and I was adicted. That was the first of many Wee stamps that I have bought and used. I was a Health Visitor for 30 years but a back injury saw me changing to working Infection control and now I am semi-retired which gives me more time to craft.  I was asked to choose my favourite wee image, and that is so difficult as I love them all, but I think of the ones on my blog my favourite has to be 'Berry' I loved colouring her.
I am really looking forward to working with more 'Wee' images this month and still can't believe I was chosen.

Hello everybody, my name is Raffaela Perego, I am 42 years old, of Italian origin but born and raised in The Netherlands. I am married and have three wonderful children... 20, 16 and 5 and I enjoy being their mum every day. I'll spend time on my hobby every day, I have a lovely corner in my living room where I will crawl into several times a day.
The fact that I get to work with Sylvia's wonderful stamps makes me very proud and I hope that I can make you enjoy my cards.
Love, Raffa
