Introducing Carol Lee Cowan...a creative designer par excellance! What a joy it was to meet Carol Ann at the Spring Fling a few months ago. She not only creates beautiful things, but shares her designs too! You can imagine my delight when I found out she's married to a friend of mine from highschool days!
I caught this picture while Carol was demonstrating how she makes her boxes from templates. What a gorgeous smile! It's obvious she enjoys sharing her hobby and getting other people hooked too!
Below you can take a peek at some of the detailed art work she shared with other stamping enthusiasts this past spring.
Totally created with the Petal Punch this is the most gorgeous flower I've seen made! Carol Ann went a step beyond and ran each petal throught the big shot using the Finial Press texture embossing folder, sponged ink on each piece before assembling and finally added glitter with a glue pen! I'm so smitten with this that I'm actually ordering this punch. I now MUST have it!
This quick shot gives you a peek at a few different size and styles of Carol Ann's boxes. LOVE, love, love the embelishments and atttention to layers and colours that are part of everything Carol Ann creates!
More tiny boxes made with tons of love. I think each of these has embossing on top of embossing. Just Yummy to look at! Notice how Carol Ann layered the embossed flowers on the yellow box above.
These Top Note die boxes show care and attention to decorate in a layered fashion and as your eye explores you find differnt ways that Carol Ann makes her images pop with brads or glitter. Just delicious Eye Candy, I say!!!
Just in case you imagine that Carol Ann just runs her boxes all quickly through the big shot... think again. Here she is demonstrating how to create different sized boxes using a bone folder and scoring tool.
One last peek at a couple of beautiful cards!
