Hello everyone. I am so delighted to be guest designer for the Frilly and Funkie challenge blog! It is such an honour. I live with my husband and 7 cats in Pretoria, South Africa. I am a librarian at a large residential university, but when I am at home I keep myself busy with card making. I have been paper crafting for about 16 years now. My style has developed over time, seeing all the beautiful cards from so many talented card makers. I would describe my style as a mixture of shabby, vintage and sometimes cute elements. I like experimenting with new crafting tools and products and using the older stash with new products is very challenging for me. I started my blog, "Stamped for the Occasion", in February 2010 and since then made so many friends around the world who share my passion.
The Eiffel Tower silhouette is cut from recycled cardboard and distressed with Tim Holtz distress inks. The sentiment is attached with twine to the Tower and then cascading down to connect all the flowers on the card.
To see more pictures and the project details of the card do check out my blog. Thank you for asking me to join the Frilly and Funkie Challenges as a featured Guest Designer – your challenges always inspires me.
I'm sure you'll all agree that Amelia's card is beautiful and has provided lots more inspiration for the current challenge, 'It's Time for a Vacation'.
