Judi Watanabe

Judi’s love for card making started as soon as she was tall enough to reach the mailbox. Drawing and calligraphy was her passion until she learned how to carve erasers. This led to her next fascination, rubber stamping.

Together with her husband, Rob, she grew JudiKins Rubber Stamps from a small business in their garage in 1989 to one of the most innovative craft product manufacturers in the industry. Included in her stamping repertoire is Retro Mania from Northlight Publications and The Complete Photo Guide to Cardmaking from Creative Publishing International (Quarto Publications).

Along with her administrative duties, Judi travels the world teaching and demonstrating rubberstamping, mixed media and papercrafting techniques. Her projects strive to reflect her philosophy of ‘simple elegance’. Judi is a bundle of energy with a smile she shares with everyone.
