Design Team

Meet the fabulous members of the
Rubber Dance Design Team

March 2021 - August 2021



Gail aka ionabunny:
DT Coordinator


Hi, my name is Gail, aka ionabunny.  I moved from England to Norway in 2005 where I live with my partner. I have always enjoyed crafting, but making cards and playing with paper and colours are my favourite things to do. I also work with glass.  I like to learn new techniques and describe my style as often simple, seldom clean. I make mostly cards, ATC's and tags and love mixed media. I am very pleased to be a part of the Rubber Dance design team and hope that some of you will find inspiration in the things I make. Hugz

Angie Coomber:


Hi, my name is Angie, I was born and grew up in Germany, but have been in England for many years and now live in Kent, the beautiful "Garden of England". I'm happily married and have 2 grown up sons, so get plenty of time to spend in my art cabin, known as "the rabbit hole". I've been making things for as long as I can remember, including cards and scrapbooks, but now my passion is mixed media and art journaling. I especially like miniature projects and making junk journals. I am really excited to be part of the Rubber Dance Design Team!

Dot Leathbridge:


Hi, I'm Dot Leathbridge and I live in Australia.  My 2 grown boys often pop in and are my greatest supports.  Love them heaps.  I live near the sea and love going out in a whaleboat every now and then with friends.  There's nothing quite like being out on the water for clearing your mind.
My first stamp was bought at a stamp party when the kids were little and I was instantly hooked.  After a long break I started again from scratch 7 years ago. The world of stamping had changed, with new products, stamps, techniques...and it has been exciting every since.  I love experimenting with stamps and ink, take classes, give classes, and generally spread the love of being crafty.
Bringing a stamp to life and having it tell a story, or give a feeling, makes me happy.

Dunja Trautmann:

 
Hi, I am Dunja, I'm 40, married and living in a small town in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany.
I am so happy that I can join Rubber Dance Stamps.  Paper crafting, creations with stamps and scrap booking is my passion - always with attention to detail.
Since spring 2007 I have shared my creations, written about this & that from life, publish occasional how-to's and tutorials, and so on.  My family always comes first. My hobby has also become a profession and I am very grateful for that.​ We run a local and online shop. When I'm not doing crafty things, I work in our family business, including spicy & fine food, I love the smell of the aromas when I come to work. Whether it's paper and paint or spices and teas. An interesting mixture, isn't it, smile.  ​I love to meet new creative people. Thank you so much for the chance for this unique opportunity to join this Team. I hope to inspire you.

Ellie Knol:


I was born in Brazil, and lived there for 9 years, after which my dad and mom immigrated to South Africa. At age 23 I moved to the Netherlands, where I got married. We have 4 children, 2 of them married, and 2 grandchildren. What a joy, these little human beings.. 
I started stamping at the end of 2009, after watercoloring for about 12 years. I LOVE to play with paper, stamps and colour (hence the name of my blog), and everything else of course : all sorts of media, from gesso to watercolour pencils, from inks to acrylic paints!
I create as I go… altered art, cards, watercolouring, mono-printing, mixed media projects, art journaling, altered books, upcycling furniture. 
There’s a lot of “ideas” or 'projects to be"in my house, in the garage, in the garden (others call it stuff, lol)
…. in short, I PLAY!

Lisa Rabellino:


Hi friends! My name is Lisa and I live in Italy with my sweet 7 years son. I'm a mixed media addicted! Since I discovered paints and pastes I love very much creating layouts, cards and art journal pages, playing with layers, background details, colours and embellishments. Mixed media is my happy place, where I can truly express myself and let my creativity fly like a colourful butterfly! I'm so happy to join to new Rubber Dance Design Team and I can't wait to start creating with these fabulous stamps!

Samantha Read:


I have always been fascinated by stamping since watching the post office lady when I was a small child, I still get a thrill by just inking a stamp and making an impression. I've been stamping for 15 years now and still love learning new things. I am a stay at home mum to my dog Poppy, she is my muse. I am so happy to be on the Rubber Dance design team and create with these stamps I love.

Veronica:


Hi, I'm Verónica, Argentinian, Lucia's mother and a doctor by profession. I reside in Madrid for several years.  My style is very defined, I try to maintain a harmonious, fresh, clean air (CAS). I prefer to work with paper collections where colours transmit energy, light, life, positivity.  For about a year mixed media has stolen my heart, I love experimenting with pigments, inks, texture pastes, letting myself go without knowing how the project will end, despite this I still maintain that "clean and polished" style that fascinates me so much about scrap.

Farida:
 
Hello, my name is Farida, 33-year old and living in Osnabrück, Germany. To calm down and take a break from sometime stressful all-day life as a part-time working project engineer for environmental protection, a mum of an 8-year old girl and wife of a wonderful husband, I JUST LOVE BEING CREATIVE. It already started in my early childhood when I was painting and sketching all the time. Then my creativity switched over to sewing and crocheting and now my passion is paper crafting and stamping, especially card-making and mini album for photos. I am so happy and thankful for the opportunity to join the Rubber Dance team and hopefully can give you some inspiration.

Josi:
 
 
Hello friends of Rubber Dance!! My name is Josi Tomàs, elbauldegiulietta on social networks.
I love scrap, especially mixed media art and getting my hands dirty. It all started as an excuse to disconnect and now I can't stop creating because when I stay in my scrap room I can feel free and relaxed.
I sincerely enjoy scrapping so much that I have lost count of the years that I have been in this wonderful world, although I can say that there are more than ten and what I like the most about it is that each person has their own essence and the same project can really be different in other hands. So I look forward to sharing many with you and enjoying the lovely Rubber Dance stamps together!

Priscila


Hi, my name is Priscila, aka Priss BlaFu from Madrid, Spain.
I'm a real fan of a good cup of coffee (tea is also OK), DIY, recycling and of course stamping.
I was born in Caracas-Venezuela and since I was a child I have enjoyed creativity.   I love to made any kind of arts & crafts mainly mixed media (but also art journaling, scrap booking, altered objects, cards, tags, ATC's, even pottery). I love to explore and play with different stuffs and styles, so I can't define myself with a particular style, although what I like the most are colourful things. I always try to tell a story through my artistic expression.
I'm totally happy to be part of this wonderful team of artists and hope you find inspiration in all my projects.
 
 
 
 
Toni

My name is Toni.  I'm 43 years old and have been crafty and drawing all my life.  I studied art & graphic design at school and then went on to college to study them and photography.
My crafts can range from ATC's to mixed media to art journaling.
One of my favourite things to do is get lost in my own little bubble and create 
I love that there is no rules no stress, no judgment, just fun, and maybe even finger painting lol.......


 
Susanne Rose:
Creative Director, Stamp Designer

I'm Susanne Rose from Germany, mum of two lovely kids and a full time crafter, mixed media artist and the creative director of Rubber Dance. After Bibi Lindahl the former owner of Rubber Dance decided to retire, my husband and I took over the business.
I started painting with acrylics when I was about 15 years old. I took a break from "messing around" after studying because I started with photography and some graphic design. After my daughter was born, I became a scrap booker and my passion started growing. Now I love creating cards, mini albums, art journal pages and different mixed media pieces. I am addicted to stamps, dies, colours and papers! My style most of the time is very colourful. I try to express my mood in everything I do.
