Kathy's Welte's Samples

Meet Kathy Welte....

Stamp Artist, Stamp Teacher, member of Erie Area Paper Arts Club and Avid Collector

I started stamping in 1991 when I began carrying stamps in my gift shop which I have since closed to have more time for family and of course stamping.

Kathy Welte presented her first class for gg designs during the Summer Store of the Week event.

 

My stamping style has changed drastically since then moving from cute and crafty to artistic. I have taught several classes on Dueling Modems and will be teaching Stamping 101 and Paper Weaving during the Cyberstampers Convention.

I especially love to teach new stampers because of the joy it brings to them. There is nothing like seeing the face of someone who does not feel they have any talent create something they are proud of. My favorite stamping techniques are collage, tag art, dominoes, creating backgrounds and learning new techniques. I also have taken up stamp carving which I really enjoy. I hope someday to sell some of my carvings. You can see some of my Rubber Stamp Art and Soft Block Carvings at: http://www.PictureTrail.com/katsstamps , and be sure to sign the Guest Book! I have been married for 30 years to my dear and supportive husband Elmer. We live in a small town in North West PA and are both originally from the outskirts of Pittsburgh where 2 of our children and our grandson now live. We have 3 children Krysti 29, Jeremy 26 and Stacy 25 and 1 grandson Nolan 2 who we really enjoy spending time with. My other interests include home decorating, gardening, collecting and decorative painting. Isn't it funny how all of our interests can be incorporated with stamping
