We just love to find talented crafters via social media! Today's guest post is from Amy Kolling. Her blog is called Stamp-n-Paradise. You need to check it out! Here are some fun facts about Amy:
Hello! My name is Amy Kolling. I live in Kansas with my 2 kids and husband. Beside my crafty resume, I work full time as a Dialysis RN at one of the largest clinics within the company. I started scrapbooking nearly 20 years ago with layouts using my wedding photos. Once I found stamping (via a Stampin' Up friend), I became a die-hard cardmaker . . . there was just something about all the matchy ink and papers that had me hook, line, and sinker! I would not be where I am today without the amazing stamping community of friends that have encouraged me from the very beginning. I am a CAS, with a few layers, kind of stamper but like to try all sorts of techniques that may or may not take me out of my comfort zone.
We love Amy's fresh, clean style so we asked her to create cards using our new Shine Brighter stamp set and Shine Brighter dies. Amy did a great job of incorporating other Concord & 9th products too. The 'MERRY and BRIGHT' card base is using our Happy Hues card pack (she trimmed down one card to use as a panel rather than the full card base - clever!) and the Ocean 3mm sequins. The 'it's your day to SHINE' card uses our Tree Ring stamp as a backdrop. SO PRETTY!
A huge THANK YOU from us to Amy for creating such fun cards, and guest posting for us! Be sure to link to her blog HERE so that you can find out about a special give-away, awe at her creations and follow her on all her social media outlets!
