Introducing the Inspiration Design Team!

A couple of weeks ago, you met our fabulous new Challenge Design Team. Now I'm here to introduce you to the Inspiration Design Team.

The girls joining me in this team are no strangers to you -- you've seen their work in our challenges. This year we're making a few changes to the blog and fine-tuning things...all with the main goal of providing loads of paper craft inspiration to you: our loyal friends, followers, customers. I'm so happy they have decided to continue with STAMPlorations this year and share their creative talents here on the blog.







Cornelia has a knack for using stamps in creative, unexpected ways, and Debra is one mean Copic coloring queen. Deepti never fails to create cards with well-executed designs, and when it comes to hip, modern, trendy, and/or chic cards, Maria is the girl to beat. Monika creates not just cards but all sorts of paper craft projects and shares her process and techniques in her awesome video tutorials. Shirley can turn any card into a work of art, and Vicki creates the most bold, vibrant, and beautiful layered cards I've ever seen on blogland.

While they each have a distinctive style and approach to cardmaking, collectively they work so beautifully together and perfectly reflect the style and vision I have for STAMPlorations.

And so on the 2nd and 4th Mondays and Fridays of the month starting this February, the Inspiration Design Team will be providing inspiration right here on the blog through the Inspiration Project Posts. And we'd like you, our fellow paper crafters, to come play with us in the Inspiration CASE Playground. Each Inspiration Project Post will include an invitation to CASE any of the projects we make and link it up to the Playground gallery, which will be open for a whole month. Everyone is welcome to play using whatever supplies you have on hand. And oh yes, we will randomly draw one winner to win a prize, as well as highlight the best CASEs :o)

Not sure how CASEing works? We've got that covered! On the first of every month, the STAMPlorations girls will be sharing their CASEs of some of their favorite cards - maybe even one of yours. Be sure to stop by the blog on February 1st for the first installment. CASEplorations will serve as a starting off point for our Inspiration Project Posts. We show you how we CASE a card so you can, in turn, CASE the cards we share throughout the month. Fun, yes?

We can't wait for February to come! But we can't say goodbye to January until we've had our Stamp Release Spotlight Week blog hop! So stay tuned because this fun event starts Monday, January 26, at 6 a.m. PST (GMT-8) and will last all week! We hope to see you!

Spammers have been in full force lately so I had to turn comment moderation on. We love hearing from fellow crafters (not spammers), so your comment will be approved as soon as possible. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us :o)
