Shari Carroll is a designer for Hero Arts Rubber Stamps and has been with them for 25 years. As one of the most experienced members of our industry, she loves creating projects using stamps, paper and ink. Shari is an EXPERT! Recently Shari came to Simon and taught us some great techniques to use in STRETCHING our Simon Card Kits! Below you can see Shari with our Simon teammate, Terra, showcasing the clipboards Shari showed us how to make with our "Flower Girl" Card Kits.
I've had the immense pleasure of getting to know Shari better through our mutual friend, Jennifer Mcguire. Jennifer is an incredible people connector and wonderful human being. She brings the people in our great stamping community together at every chance she gets. I'll be forever grateful for that.
One of the things I appreciate most about Shari is that she is a straight shooter. Know what I mean? She has a refreshingly funny & candid soul. She has a warm heart, an expert eye, and a delightful zest for life. Inside and out, she is a beautiful woman. Thank you so much to Shari for joining us in our STAMPtember™ festivities! You bring enjoyment of card making to the forefront!
Did you know that Shari is the innovator behind many of the Hero Arts exclusive ink colors and specifications? The mid-tone inks are so perfectly creamy and are perfect for rubber stamping! Be sure to check out Shari's blog. She has an extra special coupon code for you and you won't want to miss it! Watch the video below and see some fabulous tips and tricks for stamping! I love Shari's solution for creating her son's name "Brooks" even though she only had one "o" stamp!
A note from Shari:
Today is my son Brooks' 25th birthday!!! Whoa... not sure how that happened but it did! To celebrate (and to appropriately stuff with birthday cash) I created this card using a variety of inks and stamps that fit his personality. I also couldn't resist using the new Simon Says Stamp on the edge die cut ABSOLUTELY.
Happy Birthday to Brooks! As we mentioned before, Shari has been working with Hero Arts over 25 years! We'd love to hear how long YOU've been stamping!? Comment below and tell us your story :) One lucky commentor will receive a delightful Simon Says Stamp goody bag! (ABSOLUTELY Delightful!)
From all of us to all of you..... HAPPY STAMPtember™!!!!
