As promised, here’s a third adorable card from my guest artist, Jane Schenck.
It’s hard to tell from the picture, but the three-in-a-row flowers are not a stamp, but rather then negative image after using the trio-flower punch on the white square. Jane just added a white dot to the middle of the flowers with the Signo white gel pen – isn’t that adorable? I love, love cards that are this easy but this WOW. Jane says: "My favorite projects are quick, low effort and high WOW impact…I’m usually short on time and really don’t like to cut…so punches totally rock!"
Jane told me she got the inspiration for this from a card designed by Kerry Schwenneker using the love notes (available only through the promotion this month, here). You can see Kerry’s card here. Jane says she loved how Kerry used the reverse image and how "clean and, um, easy the design was." "I love the Pomegranate with Apricot Appeal, and it was easy to convert the love note size into a full card with this layout."
Jane has such a great story about how she got started in stamping and Stampin’ Up!, I’ll let her tell it in her words.
I got started with Stampin’ Up!when my friend went to a party and called me on the way home and said "we can totally do this.” I of course had never even been to a workshop and had no idea what she was talking about. I started stamping about 13 years ago when I wanted to make my wedding invitations and happened across a rubber stamp store in the mall. I took a class and discovered I could create beautiful things for the first time ever! (My three brothers got the artistic genes in the family – they sure can draw, paint, and fix!!) When I moved to Texas, I met my soon-to-be-married friend and talked her into making her invites as well. She was hooked and when she discovered Stampin’ Up! it was all over for me and my budget!! J
