|Denise Lynn - Owner / Designer |
Hi, I’m a wife and WAHM to my two young children. I’m also the owner of Whimsy Stamps! I’m very excited to share my love of stamping and my dream with all of you. Our goal as a design team is to help inspire, share ideas and creativity, and also showcase the fun and whimsical rubber and digital images of Whimsy Stamps!
|Simonne Clay - Designer / DT Coordinator |
Hi everyone! My name is Simonne, but I’m more commonly known as Sem or Semsee in the blogging and online crafting world. Crafting and stamping crept into my life in January 2009 and I’ve been well and truly hooked ever since! I use Copics to colour (completely self-taught) and admit to possibly having a teeny, tiny addiction to patterned paper, hehe! I am absolutely thrilled to be part of the super-talented Whimsy Stamps design team.
|Debbie Eastman - Designer / Digi Team Coordinator |
Hi my name is Debbie and I’m so excited to be joining the rest of Whimsy’s talented design team! I am a married SAHM to 2 children, Jack and Hannah. Crafting has been my hobby for as long as I can remember. I love rubber stamping and coloring with Copic Markers and Prismas. My love of stamping has also rubbed off onto Hannah, who is becoming a talented card maker in her own right.
|Ann Vento - Designer / Graphic Artist |
My name is Ann and I’m delighted to be joining the rest of Whimsy’s talented design team! I’m a huge lover of dogs as well as of stamping, scrapbooking, painting, chocolate, hiking, camping, science and my computer. I started out as a scrapbooker and I’ve only been cardmaking since May 2009, but now I’m addicted. I’m inspired by all of you and I hope to inspire you in return.
|Iris Wiechmann - Designer / Magazine Staff |
Hi, my name is Iris and I live in the beautiful state of Florida. I am happily married and I love all things crafty! I was introduced to rubber stamping 3-4 years ago and I'm totally hooked since. I have been creative all my life and tried many different things but paper crafting/card making has become my passion! I love being in my craft room (with my two doggies at my feet) and just creating away. If I'm not indulging in paper crafting / stamping I also like to swim, walk on the beach, read, cooking & baking (creating my own recipes) and design & create my own jewelry. I am very happy to design and create for Whimsy stamps and that Denise asked me to be on this fabulous team!

Hi ya! I'm Melissa - a 30-something wife and mother of two girls. I currently live in Portland, OR and work as a research scientist. I love paper crafting and specifically my Copic Markers and Whimsy Stamps. Luckily, my sweet hubby supports my crafting habits and has helped me design a tiny piece of heaven called my "Crafty Area"! I'm Copic Certified and love teaching others how to use their Copics in my Created from Color online classroom. I'm super excited to be part of the Whimsy team and I hope to inspire others everyday!
|Patricia Garcia - Designer / Magazine Staff |
Hello! My name is Patricia. I am native from Mexico but have been living here in California most of my life. I have enjoyed papercrafts for about 16 years, and recently it has been card making. I enjoy making my own cards and sending them to loved ones. It was an honor for me that Denise asked me to be a Designer for Whimsy Stamps. I enjoy these stamps they are so fun to create with!!
|Tammy Louise Cunliffe - Shape EZ by TLC Artist / Designer / Magazine Staff |
Hello Whimsy fans! I live and raise my family in Michigan. I consider myself lucky to be a stay home (crafting) Mom, and can only say, I wish I had done it sooner. My crafting resume will remain a work in progress because I can't wait to get back to learning every day! I participate in card classes, sell my greeting art projects in local stores and monthly crafters' market and provide demonstrations and make and takes to the public. The Shape EZ cut file products and Shapeology Dies with Whimsy Stamps is my latest endeavor that was sparked by the support and inspiration of Denise Lynn. My creative juices are flowing and I hope it continues for many years to come. I feel blessed with the opportunity to provide inspiration to you through Whimsy Stamps.
|Lori Pachkowsky - Designer / Part-time Magazine Staff |
I live in Manitoba, Canada with my husband and our three beautiful children. When I was a young girl I wanted desperately to be an artist, but was never really able to draw. So I found other outlets of creativity… whether through sewing, crocheting, photography, cake decorating, scrapbooking or cards. I was introduced to cardmaking a few years ago and have been hooked ever since. I find my real passion is here. I am able to express myself through my cards and can easily change focus from one day to the next. I love working with different papers, textures, and embellishments . I am so happy to be a part of Whimsy and work with their amazing images, they inspire me everyday!
|Sylvia Blum - Designer / Part-time Magazine Staff |
Hello Whimsy Stamps friends! My name is Sylvia, I'm a mom to four boys (aged 7 to 19) and two dogs and wife to a very supportive husband. We live in the beautiful Southwest of the Black Forest (Germany). I work full time as a software developer and project manager by day, and by night I am a passionate paper crafter, card maker and stamper! To be creative is my little escape from the everyday stress :) I was on the Whimsy DT for one year in 2011 and loved it! I'm thrilled that I have now been given the opportunity to work with the beautiful Whimsy Stamps sentiment stamps and dies again as a magazine staffer!
|Deb Routledge - Designer |
|Ellie Stover - Designer |
My name is Ellie and I started making cards in 2002. Having tried several images and styles over the years I decided that "cute" is what I like. My favorite coloring mediums are derwent coloursoft pencils with baby oil and copic markers. Besides making cards I also enjoy taking walks with my family on nice days, and reading historical novels and all kinds of non-fiction books. I am so very excited to be part of this team!!
|Heidy Blom - Designer |
Hi my name is Heidy and I live in the Netherlands. I'm a postal worker and I work in a supermarket (both part time). I've been married for a long time and have one 19 year old son and an 8 year old Beagle. I started card making a long time ago and have tried so many different styles over the years. In November 2009 I started blogging and found digis. So I applied to the Whimsy Stamps digi team DT call and Denise asked me if I wanted to make a switch to rubber and be part of the stamp team. That was such a honor and I immediately said yes!
|Michele Roos - Designer |
|Erin Bailey - Part-time Designer |
Hi, I’m Erin and I love being a designer for Whimsy Stamps. My stamping journey began when I was pregnant with my oldest daughter and needed something to do! A friend brought over some stamps and I was hooked. Stamping fit perfectly into my schedule as a new mom. Now, I have another daughter and work part time. Luckily, I also have an increasingly supportive husband that lets me ramble on about stamps, paper and Copic colors and gives me free time here and there to craft. Stamping has also given me more time to create with my children. I stamp out images and then we color together. Blogging and paper crafting has been such a fun part of my life over the last two years. I’ve met so many wonderfully talented people, many of which I happily consider my friends. I draw inspiration from them everyday and sometimes am so inspired that I need to go right out and buy something new. Happy stamping!
|Stephanie Maraver aka Stephanne - Part-time Designer |

I am also a proud mother to a loving little 3 year old boy and a full-time step mom to two young ladies, who are 7 and 10 years old. I also work part time in the civil service industry.
