Welcome New Design Team Member Emily Leiphart!

Please help me in welcoming a new member to our creative team: the talented Emily Leiphart!  I'm thrilled she agreed to share her talents with us and I know you're going to fall in love with her adorable designs as much as I have!  I asked Emily to share a bit about herself today, along with a card showing off her fun style.  I'm so excited to see more!

Sunny Studio Stamps:  Introducing New Design Team Member Emily Leiphart

Hi!  I’m married to a bicycle designer and have a very energetic eight-year-old son who has made numerous appearances in my videos!  I have a background in corporate research but I’m also an accomplished makeup artist so I still draw a lot of my inspiration from the fashion world.

I'm so excited to be joining Sunny Studio Stamps as a design team member! I love fun, quirky stamps and Mendi's illustrations are perfect for me. Of all the stamps currently in the Sunny Studio collection, my favourites are the critters with mix-and-match heads and bodies. I had to use the silly raccoon for today's card.

Sunny Studio Stamps:  Woodsy Creatures & Sending My Love Fall Card by Emily Leiphart

To create my scene, I picked the two main images; the mailbox from Sending My Love and the raccoon from Woodsy Creatures, then stamped and cut masks for them. I created two asks for the raccoon, one for the entire body for stamping the mailbox and another, just for the paws, so I could stamp the apple from Summer Picnic behind the digits.

After stamping the main part of the scene, I stamped the sentiment and added falling leaves - also from Woodsy Creatures - to create movement down and across the card. After colouring everything with Copic markers, I used the same colours from the leaf on the apple and the mailbox to create a pointillist anchor to ground the scene.
