"Lin's design is absolutely gorgeous!" 

"Lin's vellum poinsettias are so delicate and absolutely stunning! I love them surrounded with white  and just a few sparkly sequins." 



"I love Deepti’s artsy take on the challenge. Her collage focal point has all sorts of wonderful things to catch the eye. The more I look, the more I love! (And the free digi she designed is a bonus!)"




"I love Kelly's pretty wreath. The sequins look wonderful on the white heat embossed image. So classy and elegant."



"I love the gorgeous blue panel with the simple layout Angel made! Of course, there is the watercoloring where the inspiration colors are pulled in!"

Please welcome our newest Guest Designer,
Amy White, Whitehouse Stamping


Hi, I'm Amy and I live in Bristol, England. I was introduced to card making around 9 years ago and was instantly hooked. A couple of years later I was introduced to Stampin Up and ended up becoming a demonstrator. I've met so many great people through this hobby and one of my favourite things to do is teaching classes in my home, where I have a great group of ladies come to chat, make cards and have lots of fun.

I have a long-suffering husband who puts up with paper and stamps all over the place as well as five kitties who enjoy sitting right in the middle of my craft table and playing with scrap bits of paper. I love playing along with challenges to stretch my creativity and I'm excited to be playing along with Curtain Call!





Next up, is the ever-fabulous Curtain Call Crew with their amazing projects!
