This is a birthday card I made for my friend Debby S. in September.  She’s a redhead and she’s not like anyone I’ve ever known – she’s very sweet, helpful and… I can’t put my finger on it, but she’s different in a good way – she’s got flair (and I don’t mean the kind of flair like in the movie Office Space)!  I used the July 2009 Stamp Set of the Month from Close to My Heart (CTMH) to make this card.  I started with a pretty card base from the La Creme collection from DCWV and embellished it with some holiday ribbon my friend Terry was tossing out.  I used a Spellbinders Nestabilities shape in my Cuttlebug to cut around the “You’ve Got Flair” sentiment.  I actually stamped it after cutting it so I could center it.  This is why I love acrylic (CLEAR) stamps!  I used my Copic Spica AtYou glitter markers to color in some of my stamped image with bits of sparkly red and then added a few gem rhinestones.  It’s not your average birthday card but then again, none of my friends are average!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
