Blue Diamond Stamp Co. Interview & Giveaway

Today we present to you a crafter for all you crafters. Liz of Blue Diamond Stamp Co. will be bringing her line of original clear polymer art stamps to the second annual summer UCU. Be sure to stop by her booth and get the perfect stamp to spice up your next paper project.

UCU: What is your favorite part about Urban Craft Uprising or other large-scale
craft shows?
BDS: I love selling to customers in person! I had always dreamed of opening a brick and mortar shop someday... and craft fairs are as close as I can get. I appreciate having the chance to explain my product, hearing comments about customer's favorite designs, and learning about how they will later be using the stamp.

UCU: What do you like best about crafting/creating your product?
BDS: I like that it often feels like a science experiment. The process requires precisely timed light exposures during certain phases to harden the polymer goo- but depending upon specific conditions it still may or may not turn out as expected. Though often frustrating, through a couple of trials I can usually always figure out the timings needed for a perfectly etched stamp.

UCU: Is there something you are hoping to shop for, a treasure you'd like to find at this year's Summer UCU?
BDS: I think most of my jewelry collection has come from craft fairs. I made earring purchases at the last two UCUs, and I think unique earrings are what I will be looking for again this time.

UCU: If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?
BDS: I wish I had the power to change the weather. Who wouldn't appreciate more sunny days in Seattle!

UCU: Its summer vacation time. Beach or the mountains?
BDS: Beach!

Thanks Liz! And thanks for giving us this great rocket ship stamp to give to one of our crafty readers. Want to win? Leave a comment below! We'll select one winner at random and announce on Friday.
