Drum Chick Designs - Hand Carved Stamps and Paper Crafts

Senioritis: Name and location please.
Drum Chick Designs: Candice, Kansas City, MO
Senioritis: Hi Candice!

Senioritis: Candice, can you tell us a little about yourself?
Drum Chick Designs: I am a 29 year old, professional musician and rubber stamp maker. I actually have 2 music degrees and picked up card making while in grad school as a stress reliever. When I finished school I started my etsy shop, which slowly morphed into rubber stamps.
Senioritis: Wow, very cool. We checked out the music on your site and especially like Pan in A Minor and Motzart's String Q No. 1 ;)

Senioritis: Marlon Brando: Streetcar Named Desire or the Godfather?
Drum Chick Designs: Um, I haven't seen either, so I'll just say Godfather.
Senioritis: Sounds good. If you haven't seen the Godfather either, please feel free to check out the 1972 trailer.

Senioritis: How would you describe your style to someone who has never seen your work, Candice?
Drum Chick Designs: Fun, cute, unique, and trendy.
Senioritis: Those definitely sound spot on to us!

Senioritis: Candice, what would you say is the best business tip you have ever received and who gave it to you?
Drum Chick Designs: Just make your business legit with business licensing and collecting sales tax, etc. I've heard this from several people along the way.
Senioritis: Definitely a good tip, always good to be prepared for success.

Senioritis: What would you say is your favorite sport to either watch or play?
Drum Chick Designs: I love to watch baseball. I'm a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan, even though I grew up near St. Louis.
Senioritis: A Cubbies fan? We'll cross all of our fingers for you that they make the playoffs this year ;)

Senioritis: Chevy Chase: Fletch or Three Amigos
Drum Chick Designs: Fletch!!!
Senioritis: John Cocktostan ;)

Senioritis: Do you have a favorite quote Candice?
Drum Chick Designs: "Reach for the moon, if you miss, you'll land among the stars."
Senioritis: Wow, that's a good one indeed!

robot hand carved stamp

Senioritis: If you could jump in the DeLorean and go back in time; what’s one thing you would do differently in your business?
Drum Chick Designs: I would start making rubber stamps from the beginning instead of starting with cards.

Senioritis: If the $100 bill needed a redesign, who would you put on it?
Drum Chick Designs: If I had to pick a president, it would be Clinton because I'm proud of everything he did. Well, maybe not everything :)
Senioritis: We would love to see Big Willie on a $100. Would he be wearing sunglasses and playing a saxophone?

Senioritis: Where can we find you on the web Candice?
Drum Chick Designs: My 2 etsy shops: drumchick99 and drumchicksupplies and my facebook fan page and music page.

Senioritis: James Bond: Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan, or Daniel Craig?
Drum Chick Designs: This is a hard one! Daniel Craig, I'm weird.
Senioritis: I think Daniel Craig is an excellent Bond; however, my favorite Craig film is still Layer Cake.

Senioritis: Any shoutouts before we let you go Candice?
Drum Chick Designs: My husband Dave for letting me work, and my mom for being my biggest fan and critic.

We'd like to thank Candice for giving us a glimpse into the world of Drum Chick Designs, keep rockin!

  1. She has some cute stamps in her shop. A few that caught my eye were the cupcake and the fox! Great interview.

  2. Thanks Heather :) I'm kind of partial to the robot. Candice has some really sweet stamps in her sold section as well.


Thanks for taking a moment to leave us a comment, we love hearing what our readers have to say :)
