I loved crafting since I was a little girl. In 2003 an American friend showed me a Stampin’ Up! catalog and I fell in love with stamping. Over the years I learned a lot of techniques and stamping became my favorite hobby. I like to make my cards in the Clean and Simple style and I prefer to work with bright and cheerful colors. If you like to see more of the cards I make you can find me on Instagram and Facebook under the name @leukedingenvaningen or you can visit my blog

Hello to you all from Hamilton, New Zealand.  I am a life-long crafter and have tried most crafty things at least once, though I am addicted to cardmaking and quilting.  I don’t seem to have a particular style but tend towards the unfussy, although I have been known to go wild from time to time.  I love challenges and am glad to be guest for this challenge.  Cheers, Carol Gunn.



OK, now let's see what the DT has whipped up for this code word:

Congratulations, Carol! This is what Anja had to say about your card:
Carol's card caught my attention right away. I liked the way she made those apples stand out by only coloring them and inserting them into the tub. A very nice image and a great CAS design. Love the sentiment placed on the inside as well.

Once again, we have a super talented Guest Designer for this challenge...Susan Bridgman

Hello from Vancouver, Canada!  I grew up in a very crafty family where my Mum taught us to cook, sew, knit, and garden, and kept us well supplied with colouring books, coloured pencils, and paints – we were always working with our hands!   I still cook, sew, knit, and garden, and added crocheting along the way.  And then in 2007 I started making cards by cutting up and recycling the cards I received from people.  After seeing a stamp booth at a craft fair where they demonstrated heat embossing in 2009, I was instantly hooked and started stamping and heat embossing my cards.  It snowballed from there.  I joined Splitcoaststampers, posting my cards there until I started my blog (Cardmaker’s Garret) in 2015.  My style is basically CAS though I do like to experiment with a bit of mixed media. 

I retired from a great career as a librarian at the public library in 2009.  You’d have thought I’d have enough hobbies to keep me busy but I needed more physical activity so I have since added teaching dog obedience classes (I have an adorable English Cocker Spaniel), taking riding lessons, and volunteering with therapeutic horse riding for kids with disabilities.  This last gives me great incentive to make large numbers of Christmas cards as I hold a sale every November of my cards (mostly Christmas ones) and my shortbread cookies as a way of raising some money for the therapeutic riding stable. 

It’s an honour to be asked to be a Guest Designer at ATCAS!
