Introducing one of our Clean & Layered Artists!

Wow! Thank you to everyone for your positive response to The Card Concept
We are truly excited about this and hope you will enjoy the challenges we have set up! Thank you for following our FACEBOOK page and for sharing the news with your friends!!

Today I am thrilled to announce one of our inspiring designers. 
(I will be announcing the designers every other day all the way up to December 23rd.)

When I think of this designer I think of beautifully coloured images, bright colours and a fresh feel to her projects!

Please welcome, Kay Miller.
Kay will be one of our Clean & Layered artists. 

Hi, I'm Kay Miller. I live in the middle of the Ozark mountains with my sweet hubby, two fabulous kids, and quite an assortment of furry friends. I've been stamping and making cards for almost 20 years now, ever since I wandered into a stamp store in Anacortez, Washington, while visiting my Grandfather. I spent all of my travel money there, and then got into serious trouble for staying too long. From that day forth, I have been hopelessly in love with stamps. I am seriously excited to be on this team of amazing designers, and can't wait to provide you with some inspiration for the clean & layered look!

I asked Kay to share one of her Clean & Layered cards.

Here is the definition of a clean and layered could have one or all of these elements.

  • clean lines
  • lots of layers
  • designer papers/embossing
  • embellishments/accents
  • clean and fresh looking
  • some coloured images at times
  • white space

Are you a clean & layered designer too? 

Have you always wanted to try this look?

  3. Congratulations Kay! How exciting that you'll be part of this team where we'll have opportunity to try out different styles while, in my case especially, figuring out our own!
