What is your drink of choice when stamping?

Jack and Coke.

What or who inspires you creatively?

Pin ups and motorcycles.

How would you describe your style?

Vintage and grunge.

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

Ink, stamps, my copic sketch markers, a nice quality paper and a patterned scrapbooking paper.

And what is your fave project?


I created this project for a Design Team Sketch Challenge. I love it for a number of reasons: I love the color palette, the images used, the sketch and the texture I was able to create on the wings with my copic markers. (It was the first time I got to use my Copic techniques after taking my certification!) I also adore the harlequin patterned paper. I love anything vintage or rockabilly and I this card epitomizes the style and feeling that I hope to evoke with my handmade cards.

Now this next designer was voted Drunken Stampers Life of the Party for Challenge #103 . It’s great to have a challenge winner take residence in the lounge and create with us! Heeeeeere’s Jessi!

What is your drink of choice when stamping?

Depends on the time of day! If it’s before noon, then definitely coffee. Lots of it. If it’s after 5 (and it’s after 5 somewhere…) then Coke Zero – usually with a squeeze of lime and a glug of rum.

What or who inspires you creatively?

Anything & everything! I’m often inspired by fellow bloggers, and love to play along in challenges. I read a lot, so I also tend to draw inspiration from the words themselves or even the book jackets.

How would you describe your style?

Eclectic! I love my embellishments (ahem, buttons!) and patterned paper, but I’m also beginning to feel comfortable creating clean and simple designs.

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

Gah! Five? Gives me the shivers…I do kind of love my stuff!
-Distress inks
-white cardstock
-adhesive (if I could only pick one, I’d go with Scor-Tape. Or Zip Dry. Please don’t make me pick!)
-small pointed scissors

Seriously, that question took me about 10 minutes. *shudder*

And what is your fave project?


It’s hard to pick a favourite, but the one I’ve chosen has a whole bunch of my favourite things – buttons, crochet, and even a fart joke.

Thank again for joining us today! Please visit Rachael’s and Jessi’s blogs to check out more of their fabulous work. Be sure to drop by tomorrow for Day 4!
