Dana Warren - Brighton, MI
Hello, I’m Dana Warren and I live in Brighton, Michigan. I’m currently doing school full time and working in retail part time. I have been card making for about 11ish years or so and in 2011 (I think, hehe) I started my blog. Since then I have been lucky enough to be published, to be a part of a few different design teams and make some awesome friends along the way! I am mainly a card maker and my great crafty love is stamping, so I really love my stamps and inks! I love mixing stamping with different techniques and products, for example: stencils, dies, pattern paper, ink, paint and embellishments. A love of coloring has grown over the past couple years, I love using Distress Markers and Copics. I was first drawn to Ai stamps because of the hilarious sentiments, I mean who doesn’t love a funny card! And of course they have awesome images to go with the funny sentiments!! I’m so excited to be a part of the Ai Design Team and looking forward to sharing my cards with all the Ai fans!!
Diane Zechman - Towanda, PA
Hello! I am Diane Zechman from northeastern Pennsylvania and I am happy to have the opportunity to share my paper-crafting projects with you. In a few months I will have been happily married to my wonderful husband for 30 years. We have two daughters who are both married now which leaves us as empty-nesters except for one spoiled little dog! I’m also known as "Cookiestamper" on the internet because I love cookies and in the past I've enjoyed creating designs on them with a collection of cookie stamps.
I have been actively rubber stamping and paper-crafting since the year 2000 and was quickly hooked on this hobby! Along the way I have been blessed to be a part of several design teams which started with the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen in 2005. I love working with many different styles, creating cards and various 3-D items. I enjoy doing different techniques (one of my faves is paper piecing) and designing my own templates. Some of my favorite products are the Scor-Pal, Copic markers, and dies. I enjoy all styles of stamps but I am especially drawn to whimsical images. Art Impressions has wonderful characters, which paired with their witty sentiments just make me chuckle and hopefully bring a smile to others. I am honored to be working with Art Impressions and I hope you enjoy the projects I will create!
