KJ's Tribute to Her Doggies, Using RubberMoon Stamps!






I am SO excited to feature Kj Allison this week as our RubberMoon guest artist. Kj is a veteran of the stamping scene and is such an incredibly gifted artist in so many mediums. I have been lucky to be her Facebook friend for some time and have witnessed so much of her art. It is just fabulous! 

Kj was first introduced to RubberMoon Stamps while working for the acclaimed stamp store, "Stampa Barbara". Online, she became fast friends with RubberMoon's original owner, Debra Valoff.  After a long standing friendship online, Kj was able to visit Debra in person for an art retreat hosted at Debra's home in Idaho. Kj still speaks of that wonderful weekend, full of lots of fun and also remembers Debra's amazing cooking! While there, Kj had access to many RubberMoon Stamps in Debra's collection. RubberMoon still remains one of her "very favorite lines of stamps". She just loves that "they are whimsical without being too cutesy and a unique line different from any other". I couldn't agree with Kj more! She is so thrilled that Kae Pea was able to purchase the company from Debra in order to continue offering such wonderful stamps. 

The above AMAZING work is a tribute to two sibling doggies. One belonging to her and the other her daughter. I just LOVE it!  Thank you so much, Kj, for your kindness and letting me share your work here on the RubberMoon Arts Blog. 

The following RubberMoon stamps designed by Marylinn Kelly were used:
(1) Star Doggie
(2) Ninja Joe

  2. I had the good fortune to take one of KJ's day-long classes at Stampa Barbara and wish I'd taken many more. Thank you for these delightful samples. Star Doggie, in my mind, is Mr. Entertainment. Show business is his life. Barb and KaePea, just keep on rockin. xo

    1. Hi Dottie, thank you for your interest in this project. I purchased a plain unfinshed wooden box from Michaels and lightly sanded it to make it smooth, stamped with a permanent black stamp pad (made sure it was completely dry), colored in with color pencils, sprayed with a blitzer and metallic paint marker, and finally sprayed with a spray varnish. I hope this helps!
