Presently she teaches rubber stamping and journaling classes.  A self- taught artist, Roc loves rubber stamping, collage, mixed media, journaling and doodling.  Her favs are all things whimsical, unusual and things that make her laugh!  She has an online international artist trading site which she runs, along with her blog and her facebook page. Roc has been published in a variety of art and rubber stamp magazines. 
From the Stampotique Designer's blog you will hop on over to see what fabulous new stamps Roc Nicholas' uses.  Can't wait to hear what your favorite ones are!

Fabulous new stamps :) I'm inspired by Kate's use of 'Blessed Skellie', but I loved seeing the different uses of 'Scalloped Lace Border'... I also like Quizer and Mervynboy :) thanks for organising the blog hop!

Like Sue I love 'Old Timey' and the whole 'Alice' range but also 'Gentleman Fox' and 'Wolfie King' - what a lovely lot of stamps to choose from!

Lindart said...

I enjoyed the blog hop, lots of wonderful stamps! I really enjoyed the Alice in Wonderland stamps, i think those were my favorites, though I also liked a few of the other ones as well! The scalloped border would be great to use in my journal!

I'm loving the blog hopping.

I have a top 3 of my fav of the new stamps:
1. Chessy - I'm sure someone came round and actually drew the cheesy grin from my cat! Love this one.
2. Catepillar - He has a question mark (?) look about him, which would lend himself to lots of designing.
3. Picture Door - Love Picture door, I want one of these ones. I'm excited!

It was fantastic journey by blogs of so creative artists. The new stamps are absolutely the best!

Carol P said...

All of the stamps are great but I would have to say that Scooter Girl and Squiggly Arms are probably my favorites. I can see myself using Squiggly Arms the most. All of the artist did a fantastic job showcasing the stamps and this is a great way to introduce new stamps. Thanks for the opportunity to win something and for you & your artist for time invested in sharing this with us.

Choka said...

Oh no, the end of the blog hop - i want more! lol.
I NEEEED the mushroom forest stamp and the door as they're just fab. I love Wolfie king and quizer and... and ... and ....
