City Crafter Challenge Blog Week # 227 ~ I See Clearly

Hi Everyone! It's my turn to pick a theme this week and I thought a current trend would be fun!
So how about some vellum! It's been around forever and it's popularity come and goes, but it's back again and there is so much you can do with it! How about a vellum flower, or a card overlay? Use a paper crimper and crimp your vellum, you can emboss on vellum. There are lots of ways to use it, so come play and I can't wait to see what you create!

Week 227 ~ I See Clearly

(use acetate, vellum, glossy accents, translucent embossing paste, clear plastic etc)

Stella



Hello! I am Stella Schenkel and ilving in Groningen; located in the northern part of the Netherlands (Europe). Working at an insurance company, married with Marcel and mother of two grown up sons. I started cardmaking in 2006 and my style has changed a bit over the years. From attemps to create shabby cards I turned over to cards with a modern twist. And from time to time with an elegant accent.  I have a place in my heart for all shades of blue; from dark blue till aqua and pale blue. Stripes, polka dots, stars, sequins and twine are things that love to use on my cards/projects.

I want to thank the DT of CCCB for the opportunity to be a Guest Designer. It's a privilege and I hope you can find the time to play along! I am also sponsoring this challenge with a mini kit for Christmas cards/projects.The patterned paper is suitable for scandinavian cards, a shabby touch or as a start for a mixed media project. There is also silver cardstock and 8 white cards+ envelopes included. 



What a lovely card Stella! 
Please stop by Stella's blog, I am sure she would be thrilled to see you there!

Week 226 ~ Shake It Up!



Guest Designer

Please meet.....



I live in a place called Strømmen just outside Oslo, the capital of Norway, with my husband and son (17).  Cardmaking and scrapbooking have been one of my favourite things to do since 2005. I love my distress inks, Tim Holtz - scissors and seam binding ribbons and I am also addicted to beautiful patterned papers and different kind of stamps.
I love to do different styles of card making. I am easily bored if I have to do the same kind of thing for a long time. If I have made something cute I have to make something else next. 

I get inspired by blogs, magazines and patterned papers. I am easily inspired and I like to clean up my workspace before I start a new project. 

I also love the theatre and have been acting, producing and directing plays most of my life. When I was young, I studied to be a photographer so I love to take pictures. I also like interior design. I love to tell a story and express feelings and I think that all my work is influenced by that. Some people tell me that they sometimes can feel the theatre  and drama in my paperwork. I also like to teach, so I do a lot of scrapbooking and cardmaking classes.

I really like to work in my craft room in the late evening, and I am often so engaged in my project that I go to bed much later than I mean to. We have some really nice radio-programs in the evenings, that I love to listen to while I am working. 

You can visit my blog here: www.papirverkstedet.blogspot.com 

Have a wonderful day!





You are in for a treat today as our Guest not only make one shaker card but two lovelies here, why don't you hop over to Synnove's blog to see more details of her lovely work!
