December Guest Designer - Amy Sheffer

Happy Friday everyone!  Today we get to introduce this month's guest designer, Amy Sheffer.  Amy has a beautiful layered style that's a somewhat CAS shabby chic.  She has a wonderful eye for detail and we know you are going to love her creations this month.  Here's Amy to share a little more about herself as well as her first project:

Hi all, I’m Amy Sheffer, and I’m super excited to be guest designing for Neat & Tangled! I live in Virginia with my husband and our three children, ages 16, 13, and 9. I’ve been dabbling in various arts and crafts since I was kid. A friend introduced me to scrapbooking nearly twenty years ago, and stamping and card making came along soon after. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed being part of the online card making community, as well as designing for some really awesome companies, stores, challenges, and publications. When I’m not stamping or busy being a mom, I also enjoy volunteering, photography, home decorating and DIY projects, and reading.

For my first project, I’m taking a little break from my holiday crafting to make a sparkly RAK for a friend. I just love the sentiments in Neat & Tangled's Awesome stamp set, and word dies are my jam, I tell ya!

For my background, I've stacked two white Star Cover Plate die-cuts and filled the star centers with a really sparkly silver glitter paper. 

The sentiment, die-cut from light aqua card stock using the corresponding Awesome die, is also stacked for more depth, as well as sponged along the bottom with teal ink for an ombre effect. I white embossed the rest of the sentiment onto a strip of dark gray paper and adhered both sentiment pieces to the Star Cover Plate. Underneath, I did some light shading in aqua ink for added interest.

Tip: When you'll be using only portions of a large die-cut, save paper by cutting down your card stock to fit just the part you'll need. Especially if you're working with specialty paper, such as the silver glitter paper I used for the star centers.

Thanks for joining me today, and I'll see you again next Friday!
