Every once in awhile I come across a designer whose creations are so clever and creative that I just want to bask whatever they do. And, it's a big plus when what they do uses my stamps and dies.
I think it was this card by Nancy Thomas that first caught my eye. Seemed every time I looked at it, I saw something else. I loved the pins that she used for antennae. So clever. So pretty.
Then I saw this one, and I fell in love. This card, which won Nancy the coveted title of Swanky Stamper, rocked my world. (She's won Swanky Stamper 3 Times, by the way) LOVE all the patterns, but I especially love that she cut different paper for the main heart and reassembled it. Wonderful colors and patterns that brought the Heart Trio CutUps and Bear Hugs to another level beyond Valentine's Day.
But, it was this card that really sealed the deal. Stunning. Truly playful and oh-so clever. Don't you just love those little birds peeking out from behind the birdhouses from our Home Tweet Home CutUps? And just the addition of a little piece of twine on the top of the Big Scallop? It's a wonderful way to finish off the birds on a wire concept. Really thoughtful.
So when a spot opened up on The Cat Pack, I had to ask Nancy to join us. And I'm so glad to say that she said "Yes."
