Welcome to another Featured Artist/Designer Spotlight. Today we’re thrilled to welcome Emily Leiphart. Before we show you Emily’s project, let’s get to know her a little bit more…
Hi, it’s Emily, and I’m thrilled to be the featured artist this week at the Paper Crafter’s Library. I live in Toronto, Ontario with my design engineer husband and our six-year-old son who seems to have inherited unlimited creativity from both of us. Yay! I have always been artistic, making clothes for my dolls at a young age and earrings for all my friends as a teenager. My mom was the one who insisted on receiving handmade cards so I’ve been making them for as long as I can remember. About five years ago, a friend I worked with introduced me to blogging and I discovered the amazing world of paper crafting. Since then, I’ve been on 10 different design teams and published countless times with Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine. I like to describe my style as fun, unusual and sometimes ridiculous. LOL! You can find me at my blog www.leiphartonart.blogspot.com, on Facebook and YouTube.
Brag Worthy Card
I used Paper Smooches stamps and dies to create this card for my son to let him know how proud I am. He is always drawing or sketching something! After his school had its open house, a few of the parents said they noticed his work and asked me if I was an artist. 😉
I used patterned papers for the background, as well as to die cut and paper piece the majority of elements on the card. I added super sparkly die cut stars and a mini paper clip to embellish and highlight the sentiment.
I hope you enjoyed this fun project. Thanks so much for stopping by!
