Oh happy news today! We are finally introducing three new designers to our team! These ladies create such gorgeous cards and projects that we can’t wait to see them use our stamps! Whoo Hoo! Without further ado and in alphabetical order here they are!
I am a retired US Army Colonel living in the Denver, Colorado area. My husband and I have been married for 32 years and we have a beautiful 24 year old daughter who was married last December. I started scrapbooking when my daughter was 4 years old and fell in love with using papers, embellishments and photos to document my family’s story. Eventually those leftover papers and embellishments worked their way into cards. Then I discovered stamping! After I retired I had way more time to craft and began to look for an outlet for my cards. I discovered Operation Write Home, an organization devoted to making blank cards for our military to write home on. This was a way for me to still support my military comrades and use my creativity for good. I started my blog to showcase my cards and participate in the challenges. I am on the design team for the House of Cards Challenge blog and the blog hop team for Club Scrap. I am way beyond excited to be picked for the Inspired By Stamping Design Team. In addition to scrapbooking and card making I also paint watercolors. Here are some of my all-time favorite cards.
I made this card for my husband to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. I designed the sentiment on my computer and printed it on the paper.
This card was designed for my House of Cards Challenge Blog Design Team. My mother loved to sew and quilt before her eyes went bad. This was her Mother’s Day Card. It’s hard to see but I love how the scissors look like they are cutting the paper as the paper curls away from their blades.
Here’s another DT card for the House of Cards challenge blog using the French Country Stamp Set from Inspired by stamping. I love the background stamp and the chicken in this set.
This is not a card, but I consider it my most crafty of creations. This is the wedding bouquet my daughter carried at her wedding. We used old family jewelry, handmade paper flowers, crochet flowers my grandmother had made and silk flowers. It is now on display in a glass case at my house until my daughter finds room for it in her new house.
I have been paper crafting for 5 or so years and was first introduced to the world of card making and scrapbooking through my dear friend, I knew instantly that this would be a passion that I could channel my creativity into.
I started fiddling on my dining room table and have since transformed my office at home into what I have proclaimed as my crafting Heaven.
I am passionate about sharing and learning new techniques as I thoroughly enjoy seeing and hearing the satisfaction that is brings to crafters from around the world.
I love sharing my new techniques through social media to help others also feel the same passion from wherever they are.
A little about me.
I was born and raised in Southern California and recently Moved to North Carolina with my husband Steve of 9 years and our son Diedrick. When I am not spending time with my family, I love to read, craft, and play with our 2 dogs and 3 goats.
My passion for paper crafting began 19 years ago when my mom had gifted me my first set of stamps and blank cards for my birthday.
I always love to learn new tips and techniques and have been inspired by so many wonderfully talented crafters. I am truly honored to be a part of the Inspired by Stamping design team.
It is such a blessing to have this opportunity to create with such an amazing group of talented artists.
Please leave a warm comment below welcoming these three lovely ladies to our team! We are over the moon excited to see their creations over the next year! A huge thank you to everyone that applied for our design team call. We were overwhelmed by everyone’s beautiful creations.
Have a wonderful rest of your Sunday! We will be back tomorrow with some fabulous creations!
With paper hugs, Joanna
