Trendsetting Spotlight on Kelly Collins!

Hey everyone!  It's time for the Trendsetting Spotlight! Each Thursday we feature a card made by someone who has participated in the previous week's TSG Challenge. Would you like to be in the Trendsetting Spotlight?? Join in the fun by participating in our weekly challenges posted every Monday!

This week, the trendsetting spotlight is shining on Kelly Collins!
 I am a SAHM of four beautiful girls. I started stamping cards four years ago and just love it!I am also a big fan of Splitcoast Stampers, where I am known as "stinkincute".
Kelly made a GORGEOUS card for Sandra's Supply challenge:
She used the gorgeous stamp set, Wrapped In Joy and paper pieced the dress with one of the gorgeous patterned papers she used in the card background. Three patterned papers...check.  Two buttons...check.  On glittery element....check.  Isn't this card just the epitome of Joy?! *sigh*

Here are a couple more of Kelly's cards.
Both of these cards use the Wonderful Winter Wishes stamp set and I must say....they sure are wonderful!

 A little about Kelly:
1. My favorite kind of challenge is definitely a sketch challenge.
2. My go to embellishment is ribbon - grosgrain, satin, twine, striped - all of it!! You'll find it on almost every card I make, even masculine cards. To me, the card isn't finished until the bow is tied!
3. My favorite technique is paper piecing. I think it's a great way to tie the image in with the background designer papers or cardstock.
  You can see more of Kelly's work at her blog...Stamps 'n Shamrocks.

Wouldn't you like to be in the spotlight?  Just play along with this week's challenge issued by Trendie Megan, to use pink, craft and ivory.  Come on, give it a whirl....and maybe we'll see YOU in the spotlight!


Thank you for visiting the TSG Blog, happy stamping!
