I thought it would be fun to feature a stamper, my sister, Tamara. She has a gallery at SCS under the hilarious username PoodleNugget, but many of her creations tend to get missed. I love her sense of humour and how when she sets out to make a card it's all about the fun of it. She's crazy about details, like me, and she refuses to make "boring" cards. She stays away from making stuff like everybody else, instead doing what makes her happy, which is awesome! I know I tend to get into a slump of pleasing others instead of myself. Here are 2 of her very cool creations that she made for this last VSN. For the magic-themed challenge she drew these fabulous wings and made this very fun and dimensional scenic card. I just love this one, it's totally different and fabulous. This other one started out as a joke. When I visited Tamara in November I brought some of the Colorbok chipboard slab. I was really into chipboard, and she hadn't used much yet. This slab, although very cost-effective has some strange shapes that I knew I would never use, like this chipboard apple. I'm not sure how it started, but she decided to draw a little worm, then it became a vampire worm, and so on. So she had this "embellishment" just waiting to be placed on a card. Well, the challenge I hosted for this last VSN was faux buttons, so she made it into a button. It is the creepiest, most hilarious faux button I've ever seen. Plus, I like how she combined 2 of the very punny sentiments to create a humorous greeting.
