Nellie van Leeuwen

My name is Nellie van Leeuwen. I'm 51 years old and live in the Netherlands. I started stamping about 10 years ago. Bought my first stamps on a holiday in Canada and got addicted to stamping very soon afterwards. The first stamps I bought were quote stamps and  I still have a real crush for text & quote stamps. I think I own a couple of hundreds by now and I still can't resist buying new ones. That's how I recently discovered Verses stamps and I loved them the minute I saw them!
 
I love to constantly try new techniques, colourspalletes and materials. But for me a card or project is not finished without a text stamp.
 
In the past I've been published in several Stampington magazines and in a Dutch magazine called "Art specially for You". In 2013 my first book, with quotestamps in the leading role, was published. In 2014 this book was translated in English. It's called "Say it with words" and you can find it here http://www.artspecially.nl/Boek/74/English-Say-it-with-words. In 2014 a second book called "Take two" was published. I made it together with my girlfriend Anne Swinkels.
