{ Featured Artist - Katzelkraft }

{ About the Artist }

My name is Beatrice AKA Katzele, I'm 46 and I'm french. I have been a card maker for 6 years now and before that I practiced origami for 15 years.
My first cards was iris folding which I discover with a friend of mine but I quickly find that rubber stamping was my favorite style. There were no rubber stamps shop here which forced me to buy all of my stamps in the USA. So then I came up with the idea of opening a store in France, and I did!
I started to sell on Ebay and after 2 years I opened my own online shop Katzelkraft where I sell my rubber stamps line.
I try to keep time for stamping and jewel soldering, which is my newest addiction.
First time I saw Tim Holtz's DVD I found in the bloopers section, he was singing 3 little words "because I love ink" I definitely agree with this statement! Rubber stamps are nothing without ink and I love to play with them, I have a ton of ink pads, bottles and reinkers and feel like Dr. Jekyll with my crazy experiments!
