Take It Make It Challenge: Winners Profile

Welcome to our Winners Profile, showcasing the Design Winner of our last Blog Challenge!
The very talented Design Winner of our June 2015 challenge is

 Samantha Wade

Samantha won the challenge with this beautiful card. We loved it!

We asked Samantha 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 about 10 years ago, at a workshop in a small craft shop with a friend, we made very simple cards with penny black stamps.
Card making has really come a long way since then.

Q: What are your favourite kinds of stamps, and do you have a favourite stamp company?
A: Its quite hard to say what kind of stamps are my favourite , as i like background and main image.
Q: Describe your style, are you a messy kind of stamper or a more ‘clean and simple’ kind of person?
A: My style is precise, but I do love messy.

Q:What kind of projects do you like creating the most?
A: My favourite projects are mixed media, canvas, covering bottles and shabby chic.

Q: Apart from stamps, what is the one product you wouldn’t be without when you craft?
A: My go to products are Distress inks and Stickles star dust.

We also asked Samantha to show us a one of her favourite stamped creations,  and share why she likes it so much. Here is the gorgeous project she has chosen:

"Two of my favourite stamped cards, using stamps by Lavinia and Prima. I love the backgrounds, the stamped images and the bits of detail." - Samantha
