Hmm can I say I was a stamper from pretty much birth lol! My parents were both 'crafty' and we were encouraged from a young age to create, I remember sitting at the kitchen table with my mum cutting out potatos, inking them up and stamping on paper with them. I was always doing 'something crafty' and I have had a love affair with 'fancy paper' since I was about 5 years of age. Over the years I have done Jewelery, friendship bracelets, cross stitch, painting, sketching, card making, so its in my blood!
However, proper full on cardmaking stamping probably happened about 15 years ago, when I was cross stitching and made a couple of cards....and it well kinda, sorta, snowballed/avalanched from there.
