Hello, my name is Heidi Blankenship and I live in Minnesota with my husband Eric and two boys, Dusty and Evan.  I have been involved with paper crafting for over twenty years. I was introduced to stamping in 1988 and over the years, I have taught many classes at the local stamping and scrapbooking stores. I love to create a large spectrum of projects with a broad range of styles, but I lean towards the vintage, artsy style. I’ve been very fortunate to work with some wonderful companies in the industry.  I am currently on the Spellbinders Blog Team, Crafty Secrets, JustRite Stampers, Scrapbook Adhesives By 3L and Want2Scrap.  I have been published in a variety of national and international magazines. I love creating cards, altered arts, home décor, and scrapbooking— traditional and digital. In my spare time I also enjoy spending time with family and friends, photography, floral design, painting, gardening and jewelry making.

Q. What card style do you tend to gravitate towards, or how would you describe your style? 
A. I love a variety of styles but I gravitate more towards vintage or artsy.  I love embellishments!  🙂

Q. What is your favorite color combo? 
A. I don’t know if I really have a favorite color combo but some of my favorite colors are greens, ivory, browns, pink and black. 

Q. What is your favorite SSD stamp set? 
A. Always Here–I LOVE the butterflies and dragonflies and the beautiful font for the sentiments.

Here is a gorgeous card Heidi created using a sentiment from Always Here!

First up, Lindsay Amrhein!

I am mom to 3 year old Jonathan and wife to a very patient man, John.  I live in Northeastern Ohio and when the weather is fair, I spend a lot of time outside!  When I am not out and about, I enjoy reading, being with family and friends and most importantly, crafting! 
 

Q. What card style do you tend to gravitate towards, or how would you describe your style?
A. My style tends to vary according to my moods!  Sometimes I love to go Clean & Graphic, white other times I love to pile on the embellishments giving my projects a retro vintage feel!

Q. What is your favorite color combo?
A. I love red and yellow!  Put those colors together onto Kraft and I am sold!
 
Q. What is your favorite SSD stamp set?
A. I have to pick just one?  Love them all!  I love Friendly Fruit for it’s realistic images and funny sentiments.  Plus it was the first set I purchased from SSD!

Here is a super juicy and fun card from Lindsay using Friendly Fruit!

I am a stamper! Show me the ink, put a stamp in my hand and I am a happy girl!  I love getting inky, I like my music loud, and my mojo is fueled by M&M’s.  I’m married to my best friend, mom to our 2 little skater dudes and I’m owned by a diva dog who is wonderful except when she’s rotten.  I think low-fat desserts are just wrong, birthdays should last an entire week, and I believe there are 2 seasons-Winter and Baseball.

Q. What card style do you tend to gravitate towards, or how would you describe your style?
A. I’d say my design style is primarily clean and fun. 

Q. What is your favorite color combo?
A. I have commitment issues with color.  Right now its Kraft and anything but next week? who knows! 😉

Q. What is your favorite SSD stamp set?
A. I’m in love with all my SSD stamps but I’d put a puffy heart next to Dandelion Dreams.

And I’ll put a puffy heart next to this cute card Michele created with Dandelion Dreams!

Hello, my name is Vanessa. I am living in Germany with my husband, our sweet two year old daughter, and our cute cat. I’ve been addicted to stamping and card making for a bit over two years now. Blogworld opened a door to exciting paper crafts adventures for me, I met many wonderful women through it and I can’t wait to see what every new day brings!

Q. What card style do you tend to gravitate towards, or how would you describe your style?
A. I love to try new styles and techniques, so my cards can vary from simple/elegant to vintage/cute or shabby/chic – always depending on my mood or the inspiration for the card.
 
Q. What is your favorite color combo?
A. That’s a difficult question for me. It changes all the time! Right now I tend to use aqua, cream, brown a lot.
 
Q. What is your favorite SSD stamp set?
A. Definitely Heartsong! I so love that little bird!

I can’t wait to see what these talented ladies come up with this month! Make sure to come back tomorrow for our first March sketch!
