Sweet Stamp Shop: Designer Spotlight #4

Hello, friends!  I am thrilled to be up at the Sweet Stamp Shop today with my fourth installment of "Designer Spotlight."  Please be sure to check out the full details HERE!

516karolynlonconbiopicThis time around I have the honor of spotlighting a very well-know card artist...Karolyn Loncon of My Paper Therapy!  You must check out her blog because once you do you will fall in love with her work and immediately sign on to follow her (like I did)!  Check out this recent feature at Paper Crafter's Library where you can learn a bit more about her and see her awesome work.  This marvelously inspiring lady is on the current design team for Paper Smooches (and has even designed some of their stamps and dies), and has an amazing list of accomplishments.  Karolyn has many wins at the various Moxie Fab World challenges and has been on a variety of design teams.  She has also been published multiple times in a variety of card magazines...and if you happen to read Paper Crafts Magazine you likely saw her adorable red typewriter card on the cover of the November/December issue!  To top it all off, she was named in Paper Crafts Magazine Stamping Royalty in 2011 and Paper Crafts Magazine Gallery Idol Top 10 in 2013. Yes, it's true.  Amazing!

Karolyn shared an amazing card -- and an interview -- today at the Sweet Stamp Shop and I encourage you to go check it out! 

In the meantime, I couldn't help but CASE one of her awesome creations using my own stash of Sweet Stamp Shop stamps. 

Have you ever seen this cute card by Karolyn?

Karolyn - Blog Hop Free Spirits Stamps

It totally reminded me of the "Happy Hour" set from the October release at the Sweet Stamp Shop.  Here is my shameless CASE of Karolyn's card using my stash:

Yes, I changed the colors up a bit, but I stuck with the general card layout and the polka dots...perfect for a bubbly glass!

While I was at it I made another card, this time without floss but with some dry embossing:

Of course I had to add ultra fine glitter to both cards...see?

And here they are together!

Isn't Karolyn amazing?  I'm so thrilled that she allowed me to spotlight her today at the Sweet Stamp Shop ... do go check out the full post to see her awesome work and hear what she had to say in our interview!  Check in to Karolyn's blog HERE, won't be disappointed!

And, as always, thank you to my wonderful followers.  (Welcome to my newest followers, glad to have you!)  So glad you stopped by today!
