Announcing Gingersnap Creations!

I am pleased to announce a new collaborative stamping blog, Gingersnap Creations!

About 4 years ago, I was still on the fence about stamping. I started talking about stamping with a friend of mine, Ali, and found that while we both were keenly interested in finding out more neither of us had gotten very far. We plunged into stamping together and now 4 years later are completely addicted!

Ali is now a successful Stampin' Up demonstrator and has just been named as a Design Team member of the Shimmerz Paints team! Whoohoo, Ali!

I am having a blast being a Guest Designer for Artistic Outpost and my cards are featured in a few stores around our local area.

The only thing we hadn't really figured out was how to have some stamping fun together. Gingersnap Creations, named for its two ginger-haired founders, and its companion Yahoo group is the way we decided to stamp together. On Gingersnap Creations, we will have reviews, manufacturer spotlights, color challenges, inspiration challenges and lots of other fun stuff!

Enough verbiage...onto some stamping! I made this card to commemorate my getting "off the fence" about stamping and starting to fly free making some art.
