Nikki Fairbairn and Lacey Stephens (me) have joined forces from across the Atlantic Ocean to create our own Stamp Company called Wags ‘n Whiskers Rubber Stamps!!
Our images are based on our wonderful children and our furry pets! Zoe and Danni are Nikki’s beautiful girls with their pets Gemma (the “fat” older cat in the logo) and Bella (Danni’s little kitten). Ansley is Lacey’s sweet daughter with her little Yorkshire Terrior (or Yorkie for short) named Princess. And Ryan is Lacey’s active son with his trusty doggie blanket named BoBo!
The images of our children are brought to life by the super talented Crissy Armstrong!! YEAH!!!
Nikki, Crissy, and I all met while on the Design Team for High Hopes Rubber Stamps. When Crissy stepped down as their illustrator this summer, Nikki and I couldn’t let her slip away!! Within a very short time, we worked together to create Wags ‘n Whiskers Rubber Stamps!!

Now to introduce you to our artist, Crissy Armstrong…
"I have loved creating art all of my life, and I am happiest when I have a blank piece of paper and a pencil in my hand! I have taken various art courses through college and art clubs, but most of my skill has developed the hard way; through lots of practice! Stamp illustrating is such an exciting avenue for me, because I get a double blessing. The first blessing is the joy of creating a new design. But then I get to enjoy it all over again when I see what people make with my images! When they add color and embellishments and incorporate one of my illustrations into their own project, I feel as if I am collaborating with them to make something beautiful! I don't take this gift for granted, and it amazes me every time I think about it!"
We will see you tomorrow as we introduce you to two of our Design Divas!!
