Day 1 ~ Getting to know our new Drunken Stampers designated designers

Welcome! This week we are super excited! Tuesday to Friday, we’ll be featuring our newest Drunken Stamper’s Designated Designers to get to know them just a little better! And on Saturday, we’ll be diving right in to our first challenge of the new term!

Now for those of you who have been long time Drunken Stampers fans, you may wonder about the crazy team names we come up with! Every new term, the teams collaboratively come up with a unique team name…and because we’re the Drunken Stampers, they’re drink names 😉

So this time round, instead of drawing names out of a hat…we’re featuring our newest Drunken Stampers in chronological order of who responded to our DT call!

What is your drink of choice when stamping?

In a morning it’s tea and lots of it, afternoon coffee and after that Cider (strawberry & lime  delicious)

What or who inspires you creatively?

Definitely other crafters and also if I see an image sometimes I get ideas Also from the person who the card is for helps

How would you describe your style?

Oh I love to do dark gothic style cards but I also love doing cute girly cards and if I can combine the two even better but my style generally depends on who the card is for

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

Only 5 eekkk right well they would have to be my alcohol pens (either promarkers or spectrums) craft knife, tape, pinflair glue and finally my ink pads

And what is your fave project?

I have a couple but I would I would say one of my fav recent projects would have to my skull and roses card I made a blog hop I had loads of gorgeous comments about it and it was a great card.I made the BP’s using plain paper (digital) and over lays then made some roses from satin ribbon to go with it.

Next, we caught up with Wendy as she was moving into the lounge. Told her to take a break to sit down and have a chat with us 🙂

What is your drink of choice when stamping?

A nice chilled Diet Coke, occasionally mixed with Whisky!

What or who inspires you creatively?

I love chintz and florals, so designers like William Morris, Cath Kidston and Laura Ashley inspre me.
From the crafting world, I love Sue Wilson and her use of tone on tone colours.

How would you describe your style?

As before, chintz is FAB! So I tend to go quite classic, but I do like the challenge of using brighter
colours as I find them harder to work with.

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

Complete set of Adirondack inks (hope you don’t count that as 48!)
Crafters Companion Rock-a-Blocks, you get a really clean image with no echo.
Cosmic Shimmer embossing powders, best I’ve found for the tonal look i love.
Card, well what else would I stamp on!
And finally my Ink Dusters, newly bought and totally loving them.

And what is your fave project?

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

Little Girl, 3 times.
Stamped the same image three times, firstly classic black on white, them white on black
then for the third black on cream and coloured using Promarkers.
All three were them mounted and arranged onto a black and cream easel card.

Thank again for joining us today! Please visit Jacki’s and Wendy’s blog to check out more of their fabulous work and we’ll see you tomorrow with a couple more our new Drunken Stamper’s Designated Designers!

    Love the skull and roses card- so wonderfully different from my style- I am sure to learn a lot from Jacki- who looks sweet and innocent but clearly has cool, gothic side to her! lol
    And Wendy- love the 3 girls– great idea to use the same image 3 different ways! I am going to love teaming with some ladies from the UK- I have no clue what Ink Dusters are— I need to know more….or maybe my wallet does not want to know! Pinflair glue, Cosmic Shimmer- I am intrigued!
