It's not often I ask for help. Almost never. BUT, I really, really needed some help these past couple of weeks and put out a call to some friends here in the States who work in the crafting industry. Carol Heppner ( Queen of Creativity )and Lisa Rojas ( The Stamping Queen ) were so kind and generous, I want to thank them publicly for their HUGE contribution to my HSN show, airing on Monday, 9/26/11. I also want to thank the Faber-Castell Design Team for their help! They created projects showcasing my stamp line and Faber-Castell gelatos, big brush pens and more from the new Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft line.
This card is a mini work of art! Thank you Carol!
Here's Carol's information if you would like to hire her for project design. She's the consummate professional! Read all about her below-

As a mixed-media artist, writer, and design member of the Craft & Hobby Association, I work with various craft manufacturers and national craft publishers, providing them quality design services to assist in growing their business and inspire consumers.
Through my books, published articles, and Internet articles, I show crafters how to create fun projects in many different mediums. I love working in paper arts, but I am also passionate about batiks, wearable art, and digital photography.
I am a bit of a chameleon in my style – or I should say, styles. I am equally comfortable working in a grunge or aged look as I am with ultra feminine, frilly style and every style in between. Many times, my style is inspired by the company for which I am working or the needs of the project. It can be altered by the audience who will view it as well. This is a plus when working with many different manufacturers, publishers and editors. If there is one signature that you can pin to my style, it would have to be an asymmetric look. I find asymmetric composition to be more interesting.
I really enjoyed creating greeting cards with Brenda’s new Sizzix® Textured Impressions, XL BIGZ stationery die with a decorative edge and her new line of rubber stamps. They made creating the cards so much fun and allowed me to be a chameleon -- because they worked with every style I tried. Her rubber stamps worked beautifully and the images came out so crisp. Each set can produce as many different looks as you can imagine.
If you like the look of the cards I created, you may enjoy my new inking tutorial that can be found on my blog,http://heppnerstudio.blogspot.com. Carol’s Chronicles is a new publication that deals with paper art tutorials.
*******Tune into HSN on Monday, Sept. 26 for a full day of incredible crafting values. See Brenda in the 12 noon hour, eastern time, showing and selling her Sizzix Textured Impressions and her own stamp line.
