Wildflower Stamps

Today I want to share a very special rubber stamp designer/retailer...Andra Wheeler and Wildflower Stamps! I was very lucky to get to know Andra and meet her in person as we were both on the Ranger Design Team. Besides being an amazing stamp designer Andra is also a very sweet and creative person!

I asked Andra how she got started designing rubber stamps, she replied " It was something I thought I might enjoy doing, so I gave it a try." She did such an amazing job doing so that she now not only designs stamps for Wildflower Stamps, but she also designs stamps for many monthly kit clubs!

She designs new stamps each month but not all of them make it to her web-site because the kit stamps are so popular. I asked what inspired her designs for Wildflowers, Andra stated that "anything goes". She went on to say, "When I'm designing for kit clubs, I try to design images that will fit the style of paper lines selected." Obviously whatever she's doing must be working because she designs monthly stamps for kits such as Backporch Memories; The Scrap Room; Scrap a Go Go (UK's #1 Kit Club!!); Three Scrappy Boys just to name a few.

Wildflower Stamp is a bit unique when it comes to stamp sites...Andra offers up a nice selection of $1 Stamps! Darling little stamps that can be used in combination or alone! Everything from a little cupcake, this snazzy girl image, to one of my favorites ~ grunge stitches!!

Wildflower also offers up some awesome Background/Texture images, awesome Flourish/Paisley stamps, Holiday & Seasonal to Wildflowers most popular sellers - Frames & Journaling stamps.

I have so many favorites but if I had to narrow it down to just a few they would have to be...Dad - because it's hard to find stamps geared towards the guys in my life; Flourish - not your every day run of the mill flourish, this has got a bit of distressed wear to it! Gotta love it :) Another favorite of mine is Glamour Girls...cause even farm girls need a bit of pizazz in their lives - LOL!!
Stickles - Girl Thing ATC
O.k....I know this is more than a few but well, I have to also mention Make a Wish and Snowflakes. Two more gotta have sets in my book!

All of Wildflower Stamps are clear acrylic stamps that can be used on acrylic mounting blocks which are also offered on the site. Wildflower Stamps is an angel company. They accept Pay-Pal payments for all transactions and gift certificates are available. International shipments are welcome.

I asked Andra if there was anything else she'd like to share about Wildflower Stamps and she wanted to let you know, "I'm always up for new ideas and I love to see what people do with my stamps. Also, we'll have a Publication Reward Program in place within the next month. I love to give free stamps away as a thank you for getting my images published!" the mean time ~ to help kick off Ink Stains 6 month anniversary week ~ tell me what set(s) of stamps you like best ~ either from the web-site or from one the kit clubs mentioned and you'll be entered into a drawing for a surprise set of stamps from Wildflowers collection!! You'll have until the 31st to post your favorites at which time I'll post the winner :) And REMEMBER....You can't win if you don't post!!

Be sure to check in tomorrow and each day this week as we'll be having a different drawing daily!!


  1. Andra is such a talented and sweet person. All of her stamps are amazing. I couldn't choose just one!

  2. Great stamps - but I'd have to say my favorites are Dad and Cardboard Texture.

  3. This is the first time I have seen the Wildflower site, she has some great images. My favorites would probably be the Sunflower sentiments and distressed sunflower, although the Make a Wish set and "grungey" flourish rate way up there too. Just found your blog site from the discussion on the new Adirondack pigments and am having a great time going back to read the older entries. Thanks for all the information.

  4. Well welcome Sheryl!! I'm glad you found me and I hope you have fun looking through all I've posted in the last 6 months!!

  5. Sunflower sentiments set for me! Really cute doodly designs, and I love the sets where you can make your own flower!
    The distressed Sunflower is also awesome!

  6. Yup - I liked the two sun flower sets, too. I also love the dandelion make a wish set b/c of the beautiful, simple, stark images. I could do so much with those, I just know it. And the one that really jumped out at me is the cardboard background. It has the coolest texture and design - I only wish it was a little bit bigger.

    what a sweeet sweet sentiment

  8. I liked the library card set and the "Dont forget this" frame. I like that they can double as more than just an embellishment.

  9. I like the mini circle sentiments. They would be perfect to use with my circle punch, to put on cards. I'm a big cardmaker!
