My name is Guy and I am the proud new owner of High Hopes Rubber Stamps. Many of you know my wife Karen, my best friend for 39 years. Together we will strive to continue bringing you high quality rubber stamps with dedication to our customers and keeping the strong family values that our dear friends Tina Marie and Bethany started in 2004. High Hopes was created from their hearts with love in bringing stamper’s everywhere their fun and whimsical designs.
We have many hobbies between us and have been hand crafters most of our lives. I am an accomplished woodworker and our neighbourhood handyman and am always up for a challenge. I have watched Karen over the last 6 years create her cards with rubber stamps and making so many friends along the way.
Karen’s first passion was sewing which she fell in love with in home ec class in public school. From doll clothes to children’s clothes, gifts and handbags to finally evolving into making the most beautiful quilts for our family and friends. This of course took a backseat when she was introduced to rubber stamps especially High Hopes Stamps. The large open spaces of the High Hopes stamp images are perfect for watercoloring and she has developed a watercoloring technique that fits perfectly with our stamp line.
As we move forward with High Hopes Rubber Stamps we hope to inspire our customers with new designs and create new projects not just greeting cards, scrapbbook pages, gift cards, tags and wrapping paper but pins, ornaments, magnets, clothing, candy wrappers/boxes and cake decorating. With a creative mind and imagination the uses for rubberstamps are boundless.
Our stamps are made from the highest quality natural red rubber, dense foam cushion and select hardwood. They are deep etched which allows the crafter to stamp on many mediums, not just paper.
We look forward to our journey in the rubber stamp world with you all!
