Fan Group Features Part 3

Hello Ai fans! 

Is it just me or is September flying by?
I can't believe this is our 3rd fan group feature already!
These amazing artists have been filling in while Jil from our Design Team is away.

Kicking off week three is Irm Fondse-Beerens! 
She used 5376 Basic scene, 5371 Barn set, 4607 Flowering mailbox, 5388 Rugged tree, 5010 Tree set 1, 5426 Veggies, 5416 Vintage car set, 4052 Flower 1, 4051 Foliage 1, 5007 Foliage 3, 5372 Mini Foliage, 5414 Small rocks set and 4964 Branches.  Irm created a farm scene that reminds us of where we live.  So pretty!

Oh De Furey!! 
Cardinals are not the state bird of 7 states for no reason!  Your bird is so beautiful as is your entire scene. Your rustic wooden barrel is so realistic!  De used 5414 small rocks, 5261 Bird, 4871 rustic containers
5418 “Kendra" dots, Grasses 4875, 5007, 5059 and tiny grass, Tombows #177, 969, 528 and 856

Our fan group shares aren't limited to just fans.  Some are former Design Team members.  We all miss Diane Zechman's weekly inspiration terribly!  She used 5193- Woodland Holiday Set and 5134- Banner Double Stitched Dies on her sweet, rustic Christmas cards! We LOVE owls!!

Debbie Hedges...what can we say?  You've all heard "simple and elegant"...that describes her style.  She is an amazing artist that creates many sweet and simple scenes for the most perfect cards!
She used 5194 - WC Shoe Set, 5059 - WC Harvest Set, 4868 - WC Flower Set 2, 4604 - WC Chest of Flowers, 5009 - WC Mini Flower Set, 5126 - WC Foliage Set 4, 5418 - Bible Foliage Set 2, 4051 - WC Foliage Set, 5414 - WC Small Rocks Set, 5064 - Circle Double Stitched Dies

Diane Mason!  This woman can PAINT!!  
I dream of having this spooky pumpkin topiary on my front porch!
Art Impressions Stamps used for Decorative Pumpkin Topiary:  4870 - WC Ornate Container Set, 5426 - WC Veggies, 5069 - WC Harvest Set, 4964 - WC Branches Set, 4867 - WC Foliage Set 2, 5018 - WC Cobblestone Set, 5065 - Oval Double Stitched Dies

Kathy Acres created the sweetest  (Yes, pun intended...) Gingerbread Cubbies #5178 card!!  The Cubbies are a very cute, interactive more recent line at Art Impressions.  Kathy has shown us how much fun this set can be!  They are so easy to assemble because they come with matching dies so you don't have to fussy cut!

Michelle Hoskins is so good at using Art Impressions stamps and then adding her own personal touch to create fabulous scenes.  In this one there are two tiny, hiding gnomes.  I found them.  Can you?  She used 5102- Succulents set, 4763- Southwest, 5009- Mini flower set, 
4051- Foliage set,  5015- Hobbit Door set, 4961- WC Mini Cottages set, 5265- WC Wrought Iron set

Our personal favorite cards are fall themed cards and Roberta Bostrom has shown why!  Her fall wreath is just perfect with those colors and pumpkins and gourds!  We think she's channeling her inner Karen Day with the plaid paper background!   Beautiful!  She used 5426 – WC Veggies, 5418 – Bible Foliage Set 2,  branches, foliage sets 2 and 3.

Ruthan Plant has taken me back to my childhood.  I grew up on the road where the very first hot air balloon pilot in my area lived.  When the kids would hear the burner firing we'd come running.  He would "hop" us across his horse pasture before taking up his paying customers.  Ruthan's scene is just stunning with her balloon meandering down the river bed.  This is so peaceful!  She used  #5378 WC Stone Creek Scene#5372 WC Mini Foliage Set, and #5120 WC Palm Tree Set

Sharon's cards are just CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!!  Always!  This time she used 4382 Giant Cake Set with a sentiment from 5280 Practically Perfect Set.  Her cards are fun and bright and would put a smile on anyone's face.  She's a former DT member and always has amazing inspiration for you!

We can't believe that next Tuesday is the last of our fan group shares.  There has been so much
lovely inspiration through all of these amazing cards.  We'll miss these ladies but look forward to having JIL back!!  Don't forget to check out our bi-weekly challenges too!  You could win 3 stamp sets of your choice!

Happy Stamping!
