Featured Cardmaker: Jean U, Palmer AK

Meet Jean from Alaska.....she's been sending us cards for a while now....what talent!

How long have you been stamping?
About 8 years.

Do you have a craft room or specific area where you stamp?
Yes, I have a small bedroom converted to my stamping area.

What are your favorite stamp products?
I like designer papers, brads, eyelets, ribbons and rhinestone gems.

Do you have a favorite technique?
No favorite technique, I do like to color with color pencils and chalks. I like the new embossing folders used in die cutting machines. I like to heat emboss to add a little shine to cards.

Are there colors you love to include on your cards?
I almost always use white cardstock, and I like pinks, browns, reds, and blacks. I let the stamp or the occasion dictate the colors I use.

How did you hear about Operation Write Home?
I first saw it mentioned on a card gallery website, and then searched the web to find out all the details.

What motivates you to make cards for our heroes?
It brings me joy to think others may benefit from a hobby I enjoy so much. It’s a great way to support the troops and show I care.

Today I posted an entry on my blog with a link to OWH Stars and Stamps.

I'd appreciate your letting me know if that's OK.

Jean, What lovely cards! You have a really great sense of balance in your designs. My favorite is the daisy card - the masking is brilliant and the one yellow brad perfect. Thanks for sharing everything. Blessings, Louise
