Today, I'm very pleased to welcome back designer Gloria Stengel! Gloria had a Guest Spot with us about a year and half ago, and I'm so excited that she was finally able to join us again despite her very busy schedule! As you may recall Gloria is a special friend of mine, and I can't wait to see what she comes up with using our latest Creative Cafe' kit of the month for June.
Gloria has been on a number of design teams over the past few years, including Graphic 45, Hampton Art Stamps, and Spellbinders. In addition to those commitments, she graciously has accepted various guest design spots and work with online stores, including Really Reasonable Ribbon and CropStop.
Most recently, in addition to being published in several magazines, Gloria has successfully designed and sold some of her very own stamps, and recently started a new challenge blog, called Craft Hoarders Anonymous. Now here's Gloria!
My name is Gloria Stengel and I have been hooked on paper crafts all of my life. I have always loved to color, play with paper dolls, and create "projects"! In 1990, I discovered rubber stamping and in 1996 I stumbled across "modern" scrapbooking. I love all aspects of paper crafting; card making, scrapbooking, mini albums, altered art, up-cycling, you name it! I am happiest when I am making a mess! It's the cleaning up part that I don't care for!
Due to some health issues, and the desire to spend more quality time with my family, I have downsized the amount of design team work that I undertake. I have also started a challenge blog, Craft Hoarders Anonymous We post bi-monthly challenges, open to every style and level of crafter!
You'll find Gloria to be a very diverse Designer, and has been known to work with all types of art and mediums, and would like to share some of her work with you now.
Here's a card featuring our own stampset, Pomegranate Decor!
And I think you'll recognized these two sets- Grater Floral
....and Hand-picked Floral!
You can see more of Gloria's work on her Blog, "Scraps of Life" at www.gloriascraps.blogspot.com., at her Facebook Fan Page, and on YouTube channel.
Welcome Gloria! All of us here at The Rubber Cafe', are looking forward to having you with us this month and seeing more of your creations featuring this month's Creative Cafe kit- Let's Hear it for the Boys!
