We're thrilled to be introducing Nichol Spohr as our guest designer this month. She's such a talented artist, a wonderful colorer, a great teacher, and she really excels at creating scenes in her cards. We know you're going to love what she shares this month! Here's a little more about Nichol:
Nichol lives in western Kansas and has three kids: Brenden (17), Payton (16) and Ethan (11) that keep her super busy with their sports and other activities. When she isn’t running kids around, she loves to read, organize, quilt, and travel. Nichol has been scrapbooking and paper crafting for 16 years and has enjoyed working with many design teams throughout that time as well as teaching classes and sharing how-to videos on her YouTube channel. Nichol regularly updates her blog with new projects and shares lots of paper crafting related pictures on her Instagram and Facebook accounts. To see more of Nichol's work, visit her blog HERE.
Now that you've gotten to know Nichol a little better, check out her first project this month.
Greetings can be used to create a “foundation” to build a scene. I used the long greeting from the Into The Woods Stamp Set along the bottom edge of a die cut scalloped rectangle and then added stamped, colored, and die cut critters and images on top for this fall-themed thank you card. An embossed resist background and paint splatters add additional interest to the background.
Is that not the cutest scene? As a bonus, Nichol created a video to share with us so you can see exactly how this card came together:
Nichol will be sharing again with us in a couple weeks as next week is release week! We'll see you back here bright and early Monday morning!
