Hello my name is Maria and I´m from Germany! I´m so excited for this new adventure of being a guest designer for YNS as I fell in love with their stamps when I visited crafty friends in Canada 3 years ago. I have been crafting since I was a little girl and got into the real cardmaking world around 12 years ago. I´m a kindergarten teacher and love to get creative at work with the children and at home with friends. I own a big selection of punches hanging on my wall, that I use to make cute little punch art critters and labels for my cards. Most of my cards are very colorful and I love to add a rainbow here or there as rainbows represent a piece of happiness to me.
I´m very grateful for this amazing opportunity to share some of my cards and projects with you!!
How do we find our guests? We look through challenge entries and we also search the internet looking for amazing creations that are tagged #yournextstamp. Keep on stamping and sharing and playing along!
