Welcome to another Featured Artist/Designer Spotlight. Today we’re thrilled to welcome Laurie Willison. Before we show you Laurie’s project, let’s get to know her a little bit more…
Hi! My name is Laurie Willison. I am a part time SAHM and part time RN. I have 2 kiddos at home and an amazing husband who puts up with my hobby! I started scrapbooking in 1997 and was taken over by card making in 2007! I absolutely love this hobby! It has given me such an amazing creative outlet and I have met so many wonderful friends because of it! You can find me over at my blog, Soapbox Creations!
I currently design for Papertrey Ink and Reverse Confetti! I am also on the Challenge Team over at Curtain Call. I love Paper Crafters Library and I am thrilled to be back!
Today’s card is a super CAS card that I made using a sketch. When I find myself with a crazy case of Stampers Block, I will usually search Pinterest and find inspiring Color Combos or even sketches. I have a board just for sketches that makes a great go to for days like this! The sketch I am using today comes from a card Nichole Heady’s blog. It is perfectly CAS and that is my kind of card. I love white space and even using white die cuts with a little color behind it. The background color makes those white dies pop!
I stamped 3 banners from the PTI set called First Place, in Lemon Tart, Berry Sorbet and Aqua Mist. I cut out the hugs die 4 times from another PTI set called Big Hugs. I stacked them up using Tombow Mono Liquid Glue. After applying each die, use a toothpick or a even a kraft knife to slide the dies around to make sure they are perfectly lined up. I stopped with 4 dies but have used up to 6 to get really fun dimension.
