Hello everyone. My name is Michael. Twenty plus years ago, I walked into my first rubber stamp shop, and was completely hooked. This was the beginning of my creative journey with rubber stamps, inks, stencils, markers, and papers. My first love is card making, but I also try to find time for 3-D projects, mini albums, mixed media projects, and using stencils with my StenDoodle technique, which is doodling with stencils and adding lots of color.
I fell upon Your Next Stamp a few years ago. I found their images to be fun, unique, and, because I love to color, their images are perfect for me. My first purchases were Christmas images and just kept going since then.
Although I am a 100% New Yorker, having grown up on Long Island and Queens, I currently live in the countryside of Sao Paulo, Brasil, with my partner, Ruy, our 7 dogs, 3 cats, vegetable garden, and our very own rubber stamp store - Cosmo Carimbo e Scrap.
