About Us

Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps began in the creative mind of Nicole La Cour. Although she discovered stamping five years ago, her passion for illustration bloomed at a young age. She recalls her love of art classes in high school and during her free time she practiced copying images until she had an exact match.

Through the encouragement of family members, she studied art at the Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design, located in Denver, Colorado. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1997 and began working in the design industry. She eventually landed at Memory Makers Magazine, where she found the world of scrapbooking and stamping. Nicole says, “I love stamps. I love holding the blocks in my hands, and seeing the images appear once you stamp them. I love being able to create little pieces of art, the stamps make the illustration part so fast and easy.”

This love of illustration and stamping plus her entrepreneurial spirit, stirred up in her a desire to create her own line of stamps that showcased some of the designs she longed for. Once Nicole made the decision to start the company things seemed to fall into place. The designs poured out, and her husband helps with production needs.

In August of 2003, Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps was born.
