Tuesday Spotlight

This girl we have in the Spotlight today is very much a Simply Sassy fan♥
I asked her to make a new Sassy project for the Spotlight and she sent me 5!!
And told me I could choose whom of them I wanted for the Spotlight..
Well how could I not choose all? Their gorgeous and so Sassy!
So prepare for a picture heavy spotlight and to be inspired by the gorgeous Sassy project 
Heike has made ♥

Look at this..isn't the most gorgeous Halloween decoration ever..
She has used Best Witches

*Start by telling us a little about you
 I am thirty years old and have been with my partner Ralf for 11 years now. We aren't married yet and we don’t have any children so far. But we do have 2 rabbits and 2 cats, so there is a lot of action around here anyway.
I work for a big IT company and am currently on my way to become a project manager. As I’ve never been the technical and science type, crafting is my way to balance myself and blow off all that creative steam I can’t use at work.

*When did you start card-making and what made you start?
I started card-making in January 2009. I actually never was much of a card-making fan, because I am not a huge fan of the 3D and decoupage style, which is still widely popular over here, but when I discovered some message boards and blogs where people shared their truly amazing works with stamps, I was hooked. Stamping really had everything I was missing with these other styles.
As for the reason why… probably because I like to make the things I give away myself. I have ever since I was a child. So I guess it was just a logical consequence that I would start making my own cards rather sooner than later. 

Gorgeous soft colors using Bad Hare day

*What is your preferred coloring medium?
Definitely Copic Sketch markers. I completed my collection in August and now have access to the full range of colors, which is absolutely amazing. (Though there are still colors that are missing from the range, can you believe that? LOL)
I also like to use my Prismacolor Pencils on Kraft Cardstock. 

Another beautiful Halloween decoration using Witches Cauldron

*What is your fave Simply Sassy stamp?
Now that question is just impossible to answer. I probably could name a favorite for each kit,
but out of all of them? Never.
But some of my favorites are: “Best Witches”, “Witches Cauldron”, “Winking Student”, “All Wrapped Up” and “Butterfly Girl”

*How did you notice the Simply Sassy stamps the first time?
It took me ages. I first discovered them when Kit 6 was released on a friend’s blog. But I was in love right away and have fallen harder and harder ever since. 

Beautiful Autumn card using Apple of my eye

*What is your favourite card-making style?
I guess it’s a quirky style. I like to add lots of embellishments like flowers, punched butterflies, flatback pearls, flourishes and the like.
I also love clean & simple, but I am very bad at this type of card, therefore I just admire others who are amazing at that style. :o) 

Beautiful romantic card using Hippie Love 

*And what would you love to see more of at the Simply Sassy blog?
I love the blog just as it is. Just one thing I’ve been missing for the last several weeks: the tutorials. I really hope they’ll be back soon, because they really were so inspiring and fabulous. :o) 

If that is not all.. I WILL have to show some of the gorgeous Simply Sassy creations from her blog too♥
Well it was hard choosing just a few as there are so many and just as gorgeous but do go visit Heike 
 for more Simply Sassy inspiration..
