First up is Chelsea’s elegant wedding shaker card using our Rose Terrace Cling background stamp and Haute Wedding Dress.

The wedding dress is camouflaging in the gorgeous rose background which was heat embossed using our Rose Gold embossing powder.

Next project that caught my eye is Anna’s beautiful CAS card. She used Fresh Cut Dahlias to create this beautiful cluster surrounding the golden sentiment from Thanks a Bunch stamp set.

Annie used our Holiday Border Cling background stamp from the 2016 Fall Release to create this artistic card. I’m loving her loose watercoloring!

Our next spotlight is also on another great Instagram find. Nancy’s birthday card featuring our lady from the Born Classy stamp set is so bold and unique in black, gray and white!  She created a set of three cards. So check out her Instagram account for more inspiration!

Next up is a card I spotted on Instagram as well. Pam colored our Large Peonies using colored pencils and Copic markers. The details on the petals and leaves are just masterful.

Next card is created by JD (sorry, I couldn’t find out your full name.) using our Panda Can’t Even stamp. She did a great job with masking to achieve this cute layout!

Have you already seen this cute and creative “Bear”thday card by Jenny using our Honey Bears stamp set? I love her pencil coloring on those cute bears, which gives them some furry texture.

Or have you seen this sympathy card Janette created using our Dog Life stamp set?  So adorable and unique! Her stenciled burst pattern and the textured cloud are making the perfect background for the cute little dog which has got the wings.

Next up is Erica’s card featuring two red foxes in love from our Hey Foxy stamp set. Aren’t they sweet?  Erica’s copic coloring is awesome!

Last but not least is Stephanie’s work in progress project with our Haute Wedding Dress and Plus one, which I spotted on Instagram. She created a galaxy patterned wedding dress using colored pencils!  We are looking forward to seeing the finished project soon!

Hello everyone! My name is Jenny Lee Yamasaki. I was born in South Korea, and have been residing in sunny California for about 30 years. I’ve been happily married for 7 years, and I am a mother of a 4-year-old girl and a 7-year-old fur baby. My card making journey began while I was bed ridden due to my back surgery in 2015. During that time, I watched tons of card making tutorial videos on YouTube for months, and decided to try making my own cards. Thereafter, card making has been my therapy, passion, and obsession. I love stamping, coloring, getting inky, and experimenting with different art mediums and supplies. I am so honored and thrilled to be a part of this amazingly talented group of ladies!

Holiday card making season is just around the corner so I had to include the next set of cards by Sherry (@bahlmans on Instagram).  She created a chic set of holiday cards with our Second Edition Solid Shoe Wardrobe set and Round Diamonds set.  I love seeing non-holiday stamps used for holiday cards. What a great way to stretch your stamps!
