Please help us in welcoming another guest designer for May, Isha Gupta. We found Isha's Instagram account @hobbyandideas_isha to be very inspiring, so we invited her to create with Concord & 9th products for May.
First, here is a little more about Isha:
Hi, I'm Isha Gupta. I live in Switzerland with my husband and two daughters. My passion for stamping started about 5 years ago. I don't follow a particular style but I tend towards CAS cards which feature a technique or two. I absolutely adore coloring using various mediums, so my cards are often colorful and uplifting. I like to explore new techniques and also enjoy creating paper projects, scrapbook pages, paintings and mixed media projects.
I've been lucky to have been published in various magazines in the US and UK.
If I am not stamping and creating, I love cooking, baking, gardening, reading or going for long walks as it's so beautiful where I live. I share my creations over at my BLOG (http://hobbyandideas.blogspot.ch).
Isha is sharing her first set of projects with us using our Hugs stamp set and Hugs Card dies. This first card features that cute bear! We love how "hugs" shimmers on the front of the card - it's so glossy and pretty! Then an even more pleasant surprise when the card is opened to that amazing coloring Isha has done!
This next card shows off the citrus part of the stamp set. The background is really cool! We love the black & white with the pop of orange!
Last but not least, Isha made this cute card with the Hugs stamp set also. This time using the back of the citrus slice to make large polka dots!
To learn more about how these card were made, hop over to Isha's blog...
New Ideas by Isha Gupta. Be sure to follow her on social media for inspiring projects too.
Now, you may be asking yourself why we would show off cute projects with products that are 'sold out'. We planned this post with Isha for about a month now, not anticipating the influx of interest which has caused the products to fly off our shelves in the last 5 days. But, don't worry! They are already on reorder - hopefully arriving in 2-3 weeks. Be sure to provide us your email address where it says "notify me" on one of the Hugs stamp set, Hugs Card dies, and Hugs BUNDLE pages. We email our "notify me" customers before we announce their return on social media.
A big THANKS to Isha for these inspiring projects today!
