What's YOUR Card-making style? Giveaway +Intro new DT!!

Hello friends!
I am thrilled to introduce the 2012 Fall/Winter Design Team to you!  We have 4 new DT members we have added to the 7 DT members from Spring/Summer DT.  They were all asked to describe their cardmaking style, and we want to hear from YOU!  So be sure to share YOUR cardmaking style as you welcome our new FALL/WINTER Design Team in a comment...we'll choose someone to win a $10 store credit!  You have until Sunday midnight to leave your comment! (The DT links to their blogs can be found on the left side of the Inspired Stamps blog, or by clicking on the link I place with each DTs name)

Above is FABI's fabulous card!  She is one of our brand new members of our team!  She describes her style this way:  "This is completely my style, I love layers and layers of paper, flowers, anything I can put on my card I do it =0)"  How beautiful her style is!! WELCOME FABI!!

Next, I want to introduce you to:
DeNetra who describes her style this way:  My style is a "all or nothing, Shabby chic" kind of style. I love adding flowers and pearls. I love it, super dimensional and adding little surprise details...

 Gorgeous work, DeNetra!! WELCOME TO THE TEAM!!:

Our next introduction is for:
 Leesa who describes her style this way: My style would very much have to be shabby chic / vintage beautiful. I always like to try and include hand stitching, flowers, pearls, beads, posh pins, ribbon and lace and I just adore using sentiments.
 SOOO beautiful!! WELCOME Leesa!

Our last new introduction is...
Patty!!  Patty describes her style as: Me Cardmaking style is very clean and simple, I love clear white base and bright colors on stamps use... not so much elements on cards!! I love simplicity but elegant!!

Our next introductions are really reintroductions of 7 wonderful designers who have blessed us for months!!
Anita describes her style as: This fits my style of keeping it clean while adding some embellishments. HLO praying girl is one of my favorites because it reminds me of my daughter. It has two of my favorite things to add to cards which are glitter and ribbon...
So cute, Anita!  WELCOME BACK!

Belinda describes her style as: I would have to label my style "eclectic". I love it all:whimsy, shabby chic, elegant. I really try to tailor the card to the recipient, this one is for a teenage girl.
So sweet, Belinda!  WELCOME BACK! (Belinda has been with us since we started an Inspired Stamps Design Team! She is our longest serving Design Team member and we just want to give her a special THANK YOU today!!)

Chere describes her style as: My style is clean and simple. I love making feminine cards with ribbons and flowers. I love to color and I don't mind a bit of fussy cutting if that is what the card needs.

Gaby describes her style as:  My style is natural. You'll be hard-pressed to find a card by me without Kraft paper or natural twine. I do dabble in the CAS style, but also enjoy layers with die cuts, too. And I love my Copics!
Stunning, Gaby! WELCOME BACK!

Jamie describes her style as:  This fits my style because I love bright colors, sparkle and candy.

Jenn describes her style as:  My style is eclectic, leaning toward clean & simple. my mood lately has been, quick & easy. These two cards display my simple cards. though the more I think about it I probably should also do a card with paper piecing & handmade flowers.

 Striking cards, Jenn!  WELCOME BACK!

And last, but CERTAINLY NOT LEAST...
Kary describes her style like this:  I love colouring images and flowers, and I love to use die-cuts on my cards and patterned papers...
Spectacular card, Kary!!  WELCOME BACK!!

  8. Welcome, ladies! I'm looking forward to seeing your coloring talents because I need help learning to use alcohol markers. I like your style already, everyone.

    My style is cutesy. I like to add lots of stuff, but am trying to do less (less is more, right?).

  9. Welcome to the new DT! Great cards everyone. My cards tend towards a clean and simple style.

  10. Congratulations for being chosen. You all made nice cards. I make cards that are sort of basic, using stamps, but it takes me quite a while to finish one. I'm a novice, but enjoy making cards for my wife.
    Sharon Gullikson sent me to your blog.
