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.

Included in her stamping repertoire is Retro Mania from Northlight Publications and The Complete Photo Guide to Cardmaking from Creative Publishing International (Quarto Publications).
