Happy September and welcome back to The Card Concept! We are so excited to start up our challenge season again tomorrow 09/06/17 at 8 am EDT!
Before we begin our new challenge season, we are
sad to announce that Veroncia Zalis will be stepping down from the Design Team. Veronica is very active
with her family as well as the Inspired By All The Little Things Challenge
site so we know that we will see her lovely artwork there as well as on her
blog. We will miss her inspiration here
at The Card Concept and wish her all the best!
We are thrilled to announce a newest member to our
Hello! I'm Ruth, an exiled Scot living in England. I started
card making in September 2014 when a craft shop opened in my town. I decided to
start blogging to record my journey and it's all rather spiraled from there! I
LOVE any kind of crafting and whilst card making is my main addiction at the
moment, I've started sewing again and occasionally dabble in mixed media. I'm
married to a very understanding man and am a SAHM to two little girls who won't
stop growing and asking questions - crafting is my escape. Excited to join the
Card Concept and to try out different styles!
Ruth will be starting with our new challenge
tomorrow along with the rest of our 2017-2018 Design Team:
I've been crafting ever since I discovered how to attach glitter to paper!
You'll frequently find me with ink all over my hands because I LOVE working
with messy products - especially Ranger Distress products. I am the owner of
Damsel of Distressed Cards in Grand Forks, ND and teach card making and mixed
media art classes. I also design stamps for STAMPlorations. My card designs are
very eclectic and my favorite way to create is by layering and incorporating
Hi Everyone! I'm Vicki — a wife, mom and
Mimi to 12 grandkids. I am also Puppy Mom to Holly Noelle and Reese Mackenna, my
two little Yorkies. My hubby and I have been married for more than 33
years. I started out as a scrapbooker and Creative Memories Consultant in 1997.
I dabbled in cardmaking a tiny little bit until May of 2015. Once I started my
blog, Twinkling Paper Studio, on August 1st of 2015, I was "All
In". I give a lot of "how to" information on my blog so
that you can try to recreate a similar project if you like. My style is generally
Classic and Elegant and usually pretty clean as well. I hope I can
inspire you in some way when you are creating.
Hi, my name is Julie Gearinger and I live
in Frederick, Maryland, with my wonderful husband of 34+ years and our two
beautiful "fur-babies". I have been artistic since childhood and in 1999 attended my
first Stampin' Up! workshop. I started creating cards more seriously in
2010 and love designing in a variety of styles.
I am so honored to be part of The Card Concept Design Team and hope I
can inspire you!
Hello….my name is Kim Heggins, I live in the San Francisco
Bay Area with my hubby of almost 26 years and 25 year old daughter. I am
so excited to be part of this incredible team. I am a preschool program
director/teacher and soon to be retired teacher, can't wait! I started
making cards when my daughter was born, I made her birth announcements and have
not looked back. I love to sew, bake, scrapbook, quilt, cross stitch and making
cards. I have a very supportive hubby and spend most of my free time in my
Mickey Mouse themed craft room, I love everything Disney. My style is pretty
much CAS with a twist, I love bright colors and just started using Copics and
having so much fun!
My name is Michele. I am a northern transplant to a sweet Southern town here in
the deep South. My husband and I, along with our four feline fur babies live in
steamy Alabama where we love Southern style barbecue and Crimson Tide football!
I've been artsy all my life but started card making a few years ago and fell in
love with this wonderful crafting community. I love working with layers of paper
and color and am thrilled to be part of The Card Concept Design Team!
Hi! I'm Nancy Penir,
and I'm overjoyed to be part of one of my favorite challenges, The Card
Concept! Married, mom of 5, and grandmother of 11 darlings; 6 boys, 5 girls.
I'd like to say my life's slowed down with an empty nest, but I've filled it
with crafting! I love making cards, sewing, keeping up the garden, (we live on
2 1/2 acres), raising chickens, and watching it all grow! I've found the most
wonderful community of talent and kindness through all of you. Nurturing our
connection is my passion! Style? Making layers and patterns all work on a 4 1/4
x 5 1/2" canvas!
I am a St. Patrick's day baby from Beautiful British Columbia,
Canada with a passion for card making. When I'm not in the studio, I'm a Grade
One elementary teacher, happy wife to Tony, proud mom to Jake, and loving
Grandmoe to Ashlynn and Beckham. I am honoured to be part of The Card
Concept Design team
Hi there! My name is
Susan. I live in a small town in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada with my
husband of 25 years and one of our daughters (who is getting ready to go off to
University). Our other daughter left a few years ago and is almost finished her
schooling. There aren't any craft stores where I live but thankfully there's
the internet or I'd go crazy. My husband and my kids would tell you that's not
a long trip - haha. By day I'm an Education Assistant in the town high school
(we only have one) and by night I'm a stamper. I love all styles of cardmaking
but usually find myself gravitating towards the CAS style. I'm super
excited to be part of The Card Concept Design Team!
Hi all! My name is Angel
and I am from Louisiana but live just north of San Antonio, TX with my hubby of
over 22 years and the two youngest of our three boys (19, 16, and 13). I
started out as a scrapbooker way back in 1998 (decorative-edged scissors,
anyone??), then slowly moved over to card making about 11 years ago. I
feel my style is mostly Clean And Simple (CAS) but every now and then I get a
bit fancier ;) I am thrilled to be part of The Card Concept Design Team!
Hello! My name is
Mackie Robertson! I am so excited to be part of The Card Concept Challenge
team!! Here is a little background about me. I have a very understanding
husband, a grown son, a dog and cat. I am a retired Dental Hygienist, but I
still work in my dental office as the dental hygiene practice manager. I went
to my first Stampin' Up party about 10 years ago and I have been inky ever
since! I love ALL styles of stamping...from CAS to Mixed Media. If I'm not in
my craft room creating something, then I am on Pinterest or Blogland looking at
other's creations for inspiration! I am currently on the design team for Paper
Sweeties. I just love it! I started my blog to share my
creations, and to hopefully inspire others to join this wonderful art form!
We hope that all of you will stop back tomorrow at 8 am EDT and join us with our new challenge!!
