Featured Friday: Lisa O., Montrose, MI

Congratulations Lisa for being this week's Featured Friday cardmaker! You can see more of Lisa's beautiful work on her blog, Stamping with a Mission.

How long have you been stamping?  Just over 10 years.

Do you have a craft room or specific area where you stamp?  Not really.  I used to keep all of my stuff packed up and did more stamping away from home than at home.  However, I have recently "taken over" the dinning room.  My husband, not realizing what he was saying, told me "just go ahead and leave your stamping stuff out in the dinning room."  I think he regrets that now.  lol.

What are your favorite stamp products?  I have always been a die hard Stampin' Up! customer but lately I have been really enjoying the instant gratification and flexibility of digital stamps.  My card stock, ink, markers, punches, and rubber stamps are 97% SU! 

Do you have a favorite technique?  I love my Cuttlebug dry emboss folders and Spellbinders Nestabilities dies.  I can't imagine how boring my cards were before my Cuttlebug.

Are there colors you love to include on your cards?  I have several favorite color combos but when I see a card that is mostly white or even white-on-white I am drawn to it.  Black is always a great color to add drama but I have to be careful not to use it too frequently.

How did you hear about Operation Write Home?
  I am honestly not sure, possibly through Splitcoast Stampers back before the name change.  I was drawn to the cause right away but didn't get actively involved until 2010.

What motivates you to make cards for our heroes?  I wish I had a great heroic answer here!  I don't have any family members who serve overseas (my nephew is in the Air Force stateside) nor do I have a special veteran in my life.  I like stamping and I like be an encouragement to others...so OWH is the perfect combination for me.  I am able to do what I love for a cause that is bigger than me.

Hi Lisa, you do such beautiful work; the starfish made me smile and you know I love the blue medallion card! It's always fun to get to know the guest cardmaker's background. Let's hear it for dining room table crafters!

Lisa, these cards are just wonderful. As you know I have a weakness for that baseball stamp set but there isn't one in this group that lacks style. Beautiful work!
