Stampin' Success Saturday

Congrats to today's feature Diva, Ann Fitton, for winning the August Stampin' Success contest-Tricks and Treats. Her winning submission will be in the October Stampin' Success. I cannot wait to see what she created for the contest, but until then.....I do have other projects of hers to share with you. She even used the new sets she won*! :)

First, here's a little of what Ann wanted to share with all of you....

I have been stamping for 5 1/2 years now and a demo for 3 years. Like most of us, I went to an SU! workshop to "help" out a friend!!! One time was all it took and I was hooked! While I can't draw a stick figure to save my life, stamping gives me the creative outlet I need. And I'm not a fast stamper either!! Sometimes a card can take me all day until I am happy with it! I don't have one specific style of stamping and I like that. I want people to look at my creations and see differences in all of them, even it's just a little difference. I love to emboss and paper piece images to make them really pop on a card!

The first card is so pretty because the textured cardstock adds so much to it. I love the watercoloring on the Love card. Gorgeous creations
