Guest Designer Susan Sudbury

Hello everyone, today our wonderful Guest Designer is Susan Sudbury.





Hi, I'm Susan,  and I live in Saskatchewan, Canada.  I've always had a love of crafting, and have dabbled in pretty much everything, with the exception of knitting and crochet!  My life of paper crafts took a huge leap when I joined an online swapping community, and began making ATCs. From there, my love of card making was born. I'd like to thank Zowie, and the rest of the crew at Arty Divas, for inviting me to be a guest designer!







I decided to make an Asian inspired card, featuring a beautiful Geisha image from Sheepski Designs. I colored her with my Copics to match up with the paper I'd chosen, then dove into my die collection. I used dies from numerous different companies to cut the Asian elements, crane, flowers and border. I was hesitant in making a blue and gold combo card, but love how the black brought everything together!









Thank you so much to Susan for sharing her beautiful creation. Please do check out Susan's Blog.

Meet The Design Team!



Meet the Arty Divas Design Team:







Zowie Dixon (Blog owner)

Hello! my name is Zowie, I found my love of creating art around Twelve years ago, first starting with creating simple scrapbook layouts and then for the last few years working with mixed media and collage. I also love vintage and shabby chic styles of crafting, featuring a lot of old photographs in my artwork. 






Helen Nile (DT Coordinator)

I'm a paper crafter with an addiction for stamps, digi stamps, patterned papers and Promarkers! Crafting is my relaxation after a day at work and has also given me the opportunity to meet lots of friends.  I work in a care home full time as an Activities Coordinator - depending on the day you might find me singing, calling bingo, playing dominoes or crafting!








I have been a crafter for 30 plus years. Lately I'm obsessed with paper crafts while doing my altered art mixed media. I am like a mad scientist in the lab... always creating new art! I make one of a kind creations. My favorite themes are surreal, nature, goth and steampunk. 






My name is Cindy van Oorschot I have been into crafts as long as I can remember. I started out doing needle crafts and then when I went to Holland and met my future sister in-law  I was introduced to paper crafts and been doing it ever since. That was back in 1998. I love to inspire others and am excited to be joining Arty Divas Design team.








Hello, I'm Jayne Carpenter a graphic design and marketing professional by trade but in my spare time I love to craft and have done since I was a little girl. I love drawing, cross stitch, card making and much more. 

I've been in the craft industry since 2013 where I've was lucky to have my own online craft company where I designed and sold my own stamp range for just over 5 years which included 12 months on Hochanda TV - an achievement that I will treasure. 

I now enjoy cardmaking for fun, taking part in facebook challenges as well as helping other craft companies when I can, so naturally I jumped at the chance and I am thrilled to be working with Arty Diva Creations design team.








Hello! My name is Michelle Bell (I know, has a nice ring to it!). I am Canadian, living in beautiful British Columbia. I’m married and proud mama to two boys, one has left the nest and my youngest just graduated from high school. We have two cats, Nibs and Boo and they keep our household alive with entertainment. I’m a lifelong crafter of one thing or another and was introduced to Copic markers in 2011 and now cardmaking is my main passion. Creating is my Zen and I love hiding away in my craft room with my music and supplies.








My papercrafting hobby started about 14 years ago and I had no idea that there were so many art mediums at our fingertips.   I love to colour and my projects vary between clean and simple to colour pop and layers









I am a lover of all things paper crafting.  I have been sharing and teaching stamping classes since 1999.  I live in Aurora, IL.. I’m a mom to 2 daughters Allison & Jaime and 2 sons Aaron & Logan, a German Shepherd Abby and a Beagle puppy Bentley.  A grandma to 3 granddaughters Keely, Baylee, Harlow and 1 grandson Eli.  I’m married to my best friend and the most wonderful man David, who is fully supportive and patient with my craftiness.

Guest Designer - Carol Gunn

Hello everyone, today our wonderful Guest Designer is Carol Gunn.






Hello to you all from Hamilton, New Zealand.  I am a life-long crafter and have tried most crafty things at least once, though I am addicted to cardmaking and quilting.  I don’t seem to have a particular style but tend towards the unfussy, although I have been known to go wild from time to time! I love to share handmade happiness!





I embossed a white card spritzed with water, then used colour infusions powder and applied to the appropriate areas. It is spritzed, splattered and
edged with silver pen. I then used a water brush to draw out the colours where I wanted more definition. 














I’m so glad to be a guest designer for this challenge. Cheers, Carol Gunn.



Thank you so much to Carol for sharing her beautiful creation. Please do check out Carol's Blog.
