Get to know your Designated Drunken Stampers Designer ~ Elizabeth

Welcome to our Get to know your Designated Drunken Stampers Designer segment for this week.  She comes to us from Learning the [paper] craft. We caught up with Elizabeth in the Drunken Stampers lounge with drinks in hand and had a wonderful chat.

What is your drink of choice when stamping?

Tea, Earl Gray, hot. (I’m a Star Trek fan… can you tell?)

What or who inspires you creatively?

I find inspiration all around me, but these days I head straight to Pinterest when I’m in a bit of a creative slump. I love looking at the variety of photos showing everything from an urban landscape to a pretty fabric pattern. It doesn’t take long before I’m inspired to craft after looking through my Pinterest page.

How would you describe your style?

I would describe my style as elegant, romantic, and girly. I gravitate toward pastels a lot of the time, and I love using flowers, butterflies and lots of bling on my projects.

What are your top 5 stamping must haves that you could not live without?

In no particular order:

– A good pair of scissors
– Foam adhesive
– Stickles in a variety of colors
– Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
– Good quality cardstock

And what is your fave project?

To date, my favorite project is the card I made for my husband for Valentine’s Day this year. I admit, it’s pretty feminine – I guess it’s more a card for me than for him! – but I just adore the scrap of lace, the flower, and those hearts that look like sugar cookies.

Thanks for joining us today and getting to know a little bit more about Elizabeth. Please be sure to check out more of her work over at other home on the web Learning the [paper] craft where you’ll also find the link to follow her on Pinterest!

Don’t forget! There is still time to play in Challenge #87 ~ I can see clearly now! Scroll down for the post or click Challenge #87

Thanks for spending time with us this week!

Love,

Drunken Stampers Challenge #87 ~ I can see clearly now

Thanks to everyone who participated in our last challenge, “You’re a krafty one!”. We are inspired by your creativity!

Challenge #87 is to use acetate! Acetate cards are always stunning but sometimes one needs an excuse to make one!
Grab some acetate! Don’t have any? Check out any packaging that your craft or non-craft goodies come in! (Especially that clear clamshell packaging that’s used for everything!)
Then decide if you want to use it for an entire card base, a window, a charm or whatever your imagination decides and come play with us! 🙂

The DT definitely saw clearly for this challenge, there’s no lack of inspiration here!
Be sure to visit their blogs to find out more!

Get to know your Designated Drunken Stampers Designer ~ Chaitali

Welcome to our first segment of get to know your Designated Drunken Stampers designer! We’ll be featuring a Drunken Stamper’s designer every other week, opposite challenge weeks.
To figure who goes in what order, we had a few rounds of beer pong then quickly forgot why we were doing it. Afterwards, we then just drew straws! lol
Today we’re getting to know Chaitali from Cuts, Crops and Creativity! Just as she popped into the lounge this week, I had a chance to catch up with her!

What is your drink of choice when stamping?

Coffee!! I’m a huge coffee addict and its my drink of choice for pretty much everything including making shaker cards 🙂

What or who inspires you creatively?

I follow a lot of blogs in the papercrafting community and its inspiring to see how much creativity everyone has! My husband and my friends are my other big source of inspiration for ideas.

How would you describe your style?

Quirky! I get bored with a single technique too easily so keep trying new techniques in my crafting. I love to make interactive and fun-folds cards the most!

What are your top 5 stamping must haves that you could not live without?

In random order:
(1) Silhouette Cameo
(2) Distress inks
(3) PTI cardstock for card base
(4) Dimensionals
(5) Tombow markers

And what is your fave project?

An interactive spinner card I made for a blog hop recently is my fave project currently. I designed the spinner track from scratch then cut it out on my Cameo. It was a lot of fun doing this project and everyone who has played with the card enjoyed it immensely.

Be sure to drop by Chaitali’s blog Cuts, Crops and Creativity to see more of her work, you’ll also find links to follow her on Pinterest and on google+ too!

Don’t forget! There is still time to play in Challenge #86 ~ You’re a krafty one! Scroll down for the post or click Challenge #86.
