Welcome to our Winners Profile, showcasing the Design Winner of our last Blog Challenge!

The very talented Design Winner of our August 2017 challenge is

Carola Marwedel

Carola won the challenge with this beautiful card! We loved the fabulous combination of images, alongside the atmospheric background. Wonderful!

We asked Carola a few questions all about stamping (well, we are Craft Stamper after all!)

Q: How long have you been a stamper, and how did you get started?

A: I started stamping 9 years ago as a Cute Stamper, then turned to Non-Cute.

Q: What are your favourite kinds of stamps, and do you have a favourite stamp company?

A: I love all Stampscape stamps and the drops designed by Ryn. I also like stamps from Tim Holtz and the adorable animals from Katzelkraft, Carabelle Studio und Visible Image


Q: Describe your style, are you a messy kind of stamper or a more ‘clean and simple’ kind of person?

A: Both, getting messy with paint and also CAS.

Q:What kind of projects do you like creating the most?

A: Cards as well as ATC’s and Art Journals.

Q: Apart from stamps, what is the one product you wouldn’t be without when you craft?

A: Different Inks/Paints, i.e. Distress Inks/Oxide, Brusho and Spectrum Noir
Markers. Also the Gelli Plate, Stencils und sometimes the Cameo.

We also asked Carola to show us  favourite stamped creations,  and share why she likes them so much. Here are the gorgeous projects she has chosen:

"A landscape using stamps by Stampscape and coloured with Distress Inks"- Carola

"On the left card I used a stencil from Ryn, on the right card I used a stencil created with the Silhouette and Brusho on the background. I embossed  the background in white, sprinkled brusho over it and spritzed with water. Then I stamped Drops and text.
Both cards can be found on my blog here:"- Carola
