Are you ready for it? I’m continuing my blog series “what I have learned from each of the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Go-to Gals” and today I’m taking a look at Heather Campbell’s cards.
Heather Campbell is the queen of fun & cute. Not just with her personality, but with her cards as well. She’s just a happy person with a smile always at the ready.
What surprised me most about Heather is that she’s a degreed Chemist and works as a Manufacturing Engineer. I love it when a scientific mind gets creative, the results are stunning as you’ll see by her cards.
Here’s what I’ve learned from Heather:
1) It doesn’t always have to go on straight – off-kilter works! This is a lesson that I need and want to incorporate into my crafting. With a little bit of washi tape and a tilt of the hand, Heather’s card goes from good to great!
2) Fun and cute often means fussy-cutting in action. Can I just say that Heather has got some mad skills, not to mention buckets of patience, when it comes to fussy-cutting. Next time I see her, I’m going to have to ask for a demonstration. I keep thinking there needs to be a trick to speed up the fussy-cutting process!
3) Take the time to mask your stamping to really finish off your card. I’m always amazed at what a little masking can do for a card. Again, the fussy-cutting skills come into play here. But it’s definitely worth the effort to mask if you want to create a flat but dimensional-looking card.
Masking, fussy-cutting, stamping cutesy flowers and animals – these are just a few of the things you’ll find in a Heather Campbell card. Get out those razor-sharp scissors and get ready to do some fussy-cutting!
P.S. Leave me a comment and I’ll pick a winner to receive these fun and cute stamps sets from Lawn Fawn perfect for fussy-cutting and masking along with some fabulous ink colors from Hero Arts.
