March Guest Designer - Kay Miller


Hey everyone!  We're thrilled to be introducing Kay Miller as our guest designer this month!  Kay's got a beautiful, bright and clean graphic style, and we know you're going to love her cards this month!  Her's a little more about Kay:

Hi, I’m Kay Miller. I’ve been in love with stamping and card making for over 25 years, after wandering into a small stamp store in Anacortez, Washington, while visiting my Grandfather. I was totally enthralled then, and I’m still as excited about it today as I was then! I am currently living a long time dream of mine, creating for several of my favorite stamp companies. I live in Missouri with my wonderful husband, two great kids, and lots of furry friends. Along with my love of card making, I also enjoy creating Christmas ornaments from Polymer clay, digital scrapbooking, photography, and long walks outside with the doggies.

I am super excited to be guesting with Neat & Tangled this month! They have some of the cutest stamps and dies around!

It was love at first sight when I saw the Medallion Flower Builder stamp set and dies! I'm a sucker for anything you can make into a flower or use for radial symmetry. I have two cards to share with you today using this fun new set!



I started with a piece of watercolor paper and stamped the leaves on that using Distress Inks. I then took a brush and some water and loosely went around the edges creating a soft watercolor look. When that was dry I added some speckles with the same Distress Inks.



I cut the watercolored panel to fit the top of my card and glued that down with adhesive tape. I used the MISTI to stamp the sentiment underneath in the same shades of ink that I stamped the leaves in. I then cut out three of the flower/leaf dies, arranged them on the side, and added some rain stones to finish it up.



For my next card I wanted to use the dies to create a flower. I took some plain white card stock and blended some purple and pink ink onto it, then cut the petals from that. I stamped the flower in the center of the card, then arranged the petals around it.



I used the tiny circle stamps and stamped those in between the petals, and added some sequins to the center. I used the MISTI to stamp the sentient with the same purple and pink inks to match the flowers.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
