Featured Friday: Robyne B., Lees Summit, MO

This week I am delighted to introduce you to Robyne and her adorable cards! Robyne doesn't have a blog so be sure to leave her some love at the end of this post.

How long have you been stamping? I’ve been stamping for about five years. I started out a scrapbooker, but when I started making cards to use up scraps, I needed to stamp the sentiments. Then, of course, I started stamping cute little images. Then I had to learn to color them in. One thing just led to another.

Do you have a craft room or specific area where you stamp? I’ve pretty much taken over the family room.

What are your favorite stamp products? I like funny images and sayings. I figure everyone can use a smile and if the product makes me smile, it’ll make the recipient smile.

Do you have a favorite technique?  To get some shine, I use clear glaze products sparingly for touches here and there. Also, I’m not afraid to use products from years ago. Sometimes they have to be repurposed. I use eyelets, diecuts, paper piecings, old punches, snaps, coluzzle shapes, staples, printed punchouts, even older designer paper. The main thing when using older products is to put them with current products and make them look neat and clean.

Are there colors you love to include on your cards? I love looking at unique color combinations. I usually try to match the printed paper. Recently made some robot cards that had the colors of lime green, gray-blue, peach, and orange. I wouldn’t pick those colors on my own, but they were the colors in the paper, so I colored in the stamped images to match. I even got to use some peach eyelets with these. I was pleased with how they turned out.

How did you hear about Operation Write Home? I read about it on a national, online message board and thought I’d give it a try.

What motivates you to make cards for our heroes? It’s a great way to support ordinary people placed in extraordinary circumstances. Operation Write Home not only supports the heroes in the field, but their families who are also sacrificing back home. It’s a rewarding way to say “thank you.”

Love the little riddles and having to open to see the answer. Very clever. You should get a blog. You would have visitors with your cute cards.

I love love love the idea of the one-liner on a little door - totally going to copy that!

AllisonG  – (February 11, 2011 at 1:56 PM)  

Adorable cards. I too like funny images and sentiments. I really enjoyed your riddles and had never thought of incorporating them the way you did. I may have to "borrow" that idea. And, I agree wholeheartedly - you need a blog because your cards are too cute to go unseen by the rest of us!

Sherry H  – (February 11, 2011 at 4:27 PM)  

Yes, Robyne, believe me, if I could set up a blog, anybody can, lol! Your cards are so clever, bright and fun. I especially love the monkeys blowing bubbles! Thanks for sharing your art with us!!
