Featured Designer: Shona Chambers

Friday, May 6, 2016

It's Friday and Shona is back with another fantastic post for you!

Hi everyone and thanks so much for joining me for my third ‘CASology – Featured Designer’ post. This time I thought I would show you some of my favourite CAS cards from 2015/16. I’ve had a lot of fun with the CASology ‘Code Words’ over the past two years and thought I would save my funnier cards for my last post next week.

The first card is one of my most popular cards EVER that I’ve made. I made it last year for a Virginia’s View ‘Geometric’ challenge and wasn’t actually going to link it because I wasn’t sure if it would be liked by anyone. My Instagram feed and blog exploded with comments and I was blown away by how much everyone liked it. I didn’t think I had done enough with the design as it’s a die-cut with patterned paper behind it but it goes to show that sometimes simple is all that’s needed. So try not to doubt your designs like I always do!!

The second card is a one-layer card I created for a Hero Arts challenge. When I first started making cards I HATED making one-layer cards. I could never think of an interesting design and it never seemed to have enough interest. Now, after lots more practice, inspiration from bloggers I follow and now owning better ink pads, one-layer cards are now some of my favourite cards to make!! You can make them so interesting, even if your using the same stamp over and over. And I recently realised that black ink isn’t just for outlines, it makes for great ‘fill in detail’ using the tiniest of stamps between the bigger images. May Park has been a huge inspiration for my one-layer cards and if you haven’t visited her blog before (Mayholic Crafts), then rush over now to be wowed by her card making skills.

I have a couple more of my favourite cards on my blog and also a card for this weeks CASology ‘Move’ challenge, so I hope to see you there. And will meet you back here for the last time next Friday to have a laugh at some of my quirky CASology entries from the past.

Head on over to her blog to see more of her wonderful work!
