Sweet Spotlight: Shelly Kurth

 Doin' the Friday dance - Doin' the Friday dance! Come on - wiggle in that chair of yours - it's the Friday dance!

Ok, now that we have that done. Are you ready to see some CUTE inspiration from our guest designer Shelly?

Let's meet Shelly!

 Here is a little bit about Shelly in her own words...

Hello, from the sunshine state! I'm a stay SAHM of four. You can find me crafting, just about everyday of the week! I started scrapbooking in 2004 and shortly after, I found my true passion is making cards. I'm addicted to stamps. I'm addicted to paper. My style is very much, CAS. Last but not least, a BIG "Thank you" to SSS for having me as a guest designer!! :)

Shelly has made some pretty amazing cards featuring our new set

 Check out her different takes on this ONE stamp set. (super versatile!)

She made faux Washi tape with vellum and the stamp set - how cool is that?! And how fun is that little peek at the rainbow - it's such a genius CAS card. (the sentiment couldn't be MORE true!!)

You know what's cool about this one... it's FLOCKED!! Yep, take a closer look...

She flocked the background - amazing, right? Note to self - use my glue pad MORE. (My mind is thinking glitter rainbow.... thinking ... thinking... oh, yes - a genius I idea is forming... Thanks Shelly!!)

 Lastly, how cute is this card - she masked the chevron in the 'poof' ... it's just so well designed and so CLEAN. Ok, I'm crushing on Shelly's design. Nuf' said.

Shelly also used our favorite 'Chemistry' set

Take a moment and say hello to Shelly HERE.


I'm going to highjack this post for a moment and share a card I made for the latest 'Play Date Cafe' challenge... if you haven't seen or heard of this challenge - you'll wanna take a peek HERE. They always have such fun inspiration boards! 

This weeks inspiration board was SO beautiful - but I learned quickly, I don't have a very large stash of peachy colored items... so, I kinda had to go rogue on this one. (and I guess go a bit more 'pink' than coral)

Here is my take on it...

 I used my favorite Freckled Fawn wood chips... (LOVE THEM!) and I embossed the dial from 'Let's Chat'  - and water-colored over it. I love how it turned out.

 Thanks for stopping in on this LOVELY Friday morning! Have an amazing weekend and stop by tomorrow for another guest designer - I just peeked at her cards and they're AMAZING! You'll wanna come on by! (and I might even have a video to share with you - you know you love some video!)

Hugs and Happy Crafting

  2. Shelly is the BOMB!!! I love her CAS style and how every single card she makes has an unexpected flocking, stamped washi or an altered embellie. She's a genius that girl! Love her to bits too!
