"Rubber Stamp Madness" has always been one of my favorite magazines. The current issue is out for print and expected to ship out to subscribers this week according to the email I received this morning. I wanted to share one of the featured artists in this issue, Jessi Cornwell, known as the Cut-Out Queen.

by Jessi Cornwell for Rubber Stamp Madness Magazine, Fall 2014 Issue
"Jessi Cornwell—the Cut-Out Queen.This New England stamper loves to emboss, cut out images and create beautiful cards, many with a Fall theme. Her stamping technique includes lots of embossing and an extremely sharp German-made pair of scissors with two-inch blades.
"I’ll stamp one image on ten different colors of cardstock, then dip whole sheets into big tubs of embossing powder. Mostly I use clear detail EP with black ColorBox ink—I must re-ink that pad twenty times a month," she says.
Magic Leaves by Jessi Cornwell. (Stamp credits: Word “Autumn”—Art Impressions; autumn postoid—Hero Arts; background leaves—Peddler’s Pack; square leaves collage—Rubber Stamps of America; branch border—Stampscapes; small leaf—Fred B. Mullett; medium leaf—A.N.T. Transfer [Magenta]; large leaf—JudiKins.)"
