Where are They Now? Jessie Rone

Today's fabulous sample is from my "Dirty Girl" friend, Jessie! I was lucky enought to meet here this summer a few motnhs after she started checking out my blog and entering my contests (at the time she wasn't on any teams at the time, an you believe?!), I am just so awe in her stuff, and so proud of all the she has accomplished this past eyar, when you scroll down you'll just be amazed at what she's been up to the past several months!

She combined two of my sets today: "Hip Hop Accessories" and "Little Tees", is that not the cutest to put a little kangaroo on a prego shirt with "baby on board"??(this greeting is also from the Little Tees set) I love it!! DP is Basic Grey Sugared. I posed the same questions to her today that I started asking all my guest designers after her term, here's some stuff you need to know!;)

:coloring-LOVE IT!!
Colors/color combo-right now Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss and Cameo Coral
Type of project to make thatʼs not a card?-I don't but when forced to choose, I do like stamping on candles.
Gina K set by Melanie-hmm, all of them???!!! LOVE the Year of Flowers set
Gina K sets (from any illustrator) Year of Flowers
Craft supplies I canʼt live without: Brads, ribbon, spiral clips, and my markers!!
I've been stamping for (how long) 6yrs..yikes!!
I get my inspiration from other stampers!!
The most important things Iʼve learned about stamping/cardmaking/scrapbooking are to find your own style and stick with it, trying to be something you are not makes for no mojo and no love for your cards. At least for me...

Some of my stamping/crafting goals are I would love to get published, and I am in love with several different stamps companies, so some more guest designer spots would be awesome!!

Some of my stamping/crafting accomplishments are SCS Dirty Dozen member, Paper Pretties DT coordinator, designer for My Favorite Things, Whipper Snapper Featured Designer, There She Goes Guest Designer, and of course Melanie Muenchinger's very first guest designer!! I was also SCS Featured Stamper number 80 and Jen's Sketch For You to Try Sampler!

See?? good things happen to those who enter my contests! ;)

Thank you, Jessie! (Did you see her wrestling card with Hand-in-Hand earlier today?? eek!!) :)

  1. I want you to do more altering of stamps. I want you to keep showing us to get more mileage out of our stamps by adding sleeves, pony tails, altering the shirts...etc.

  2. Jessie's card is beautiful! I love how she used the t-shirt for a baby card. Awesome!

  3. in real life non of my friends are crafters so i rely on these blogs for inspiration and ideas and encouragement,,,thnks so much for sharing")

  4. I look at your blog and Gina's blog and think wow - where did they come up with the idea to do that? Especially when using the patterned paper - everything seems to go so well - I have a problem with using different product lines together - any thing you can do there to help out? How do I pick up a Ranger product and color and match it with Stampin' Up! paper or Basic Grey ....
    you artist types do not know how easy you have it!

  5. Wow! The colors and textures look great together. I really like this card.

  6. What a cute card! I love to see tutorials on any new techniques. They keep me fired up! Thanks.
