September Featured Cardie ~ Linda SS

It's a new month, and that means we have a very talented cardie to announce..please welcome Linda SS!


Who are you?
Well to put in simply i am a cardmaking and photoloving girl, but first of all a mom to the two best children in the world.. We live  by the wonderful coastline Hustadvika in Norway with the Atlantic Ocean Road five minutes away..

Can you describe your cardmaking style?
That one is easy, well the fact is I love to go all over the place, sometimes I play in the TimH style, sometimes vintage, sometimes clean and simple but I can say one thing I almost never go layer after layer.. I also love to create boxes for cards.. that is little boxed that is to be used as a card, and it is really fun to come up with this on my own... trying and failing, and failing, and failing and finally getting it right.. that is fun..

How long have you been papercrafting
I started with making my first Christmas cards in 2009, and the next spring I was hooked and then I found all the paper fun on www.. and from then on it has just been getting worse

Where do you find your inspiration
Well from everywhere I got to say, but I love a good challenge and always gets me going.. I also get a creating mojo kick with trying something new, that always a fun thing.. Her at the nook there is always a whole lot of wonderful inspiration, pinterst you can always find something and from different blogs around the web.. I also love the Norwegian mag. Ett Trykk, they always makes me want to start something..

What is your favorite color combination ?
Well that one is really easy.. brown and white... :) Other then that I love them all... but have a tendency to go nearly monochromatic on a lot of my cards..

Can you tell us what embellishment is often found on your cards ?
Butterflies, I just simply love them... Other then that I use distress ink on everything I make (in some way or another), and sometimes it works as its own embellishment.. I also love making my own pepples, so that comes on a few..

Here are just a few of Linda's fab cards..
