Happy Friday! We're excited to introduce you to our first guest designer of the year, Stephanie Klauck! Stephanie has an amazing clean and simple style, with bold pops of color or texture, and she's a true artist, you should definitely check out her Disney princess drawings on her blog, Round Here. Here's Stephanie with a little more about herself:
Hi! My name is Stephanie and I have been a part of the paper crafting industry since around 2003. I love to create and share my creations online on my blog as well as my other favourite social media site, Instagram! ;)
I have been published with various paper crafting magazines throughout the years, including Scrapbook and Cards Today, Creating Keepsakes and Simple Scrapbooks, among others. I originally started out as a scrapbooker, but focus most of my craft time now on cardmaking and have recently gotten very interested in colouring and drawing.
I reside in Ontario, Canada with my husband Steve and two children, Caitlyn and Ryan. I work full-time in an administrative position and spend the rest of my time hanging out with family and friends, crafting, watching NHL and Nascar and reading on my kindle.
I am so excited to be guesting on the Neat & Tangled blog this month. For my first post I wanted to create a card using the adorable images from the Better Together stamp set. I had an idea in my head to stamp and colour the cute kids and have them stand together on the world.
To create my world, I cut out an arch shape from white cardstock that would fit on the bottom of my card stock panel and then I drew a rough sketch of the top of the globe on it with pencil. Once I was happy with it, I traced over it with a black Copic multi-liner and then I coloured it in with Copic markers before attaching it to my card stock panel.
I adhered the 3 kids to the top of the globe so it looks like they are standing on the world together. I adhered the middle girl with foam adhesive and the other two directly on the card.
To create my sentiment, I used two different sentiment stamps from the Perfect Blend stamp set, cut them apart, and changed up the words to work with my card design. I wanted to add a little something that went with the love part of the sentiment so I stamped a tiny heart from the Say Yes To Donuts stamp set, onto the world with red ink.
Thanks for joining me today on the N&T blog! I'll be back next week with another card to share! ;)
