DT Wrap Up: Val Stangle

Welcome to Thursday!  Thank you for joining our DT Wrap Up week featuring our phenomenal outgoing design team!  Next up is our regular Thursday poster, Val Stangle.

What FSS owner Shannon has to say:
I've loved Val's work for years, getting to know of it through a local scrapbook store here in San Diego.  Her clean style and innovative projects have always appealed to me, so it was an honor to have Val design for FSS.  Val is a multi-talented lady and I've enjoyed getting to know her better personally and professionally.

Shannon's Favorite: I just love the way Val makes her cards *POP* with colorful elements and the perfect balance of stamps, paper and embellishments -- bravo!

What FSS owner Ryann has to say:
When I first started paper crafting in 2007, Val was one of the first designers I came across that really resonated with me as I was trying to find my “style” as a designer.  I admire her use of embellishments and her knack of pairing patterned paper with stamps.  A lot of card makers find that hard to do and she makes it look SO good (and easy)!

Ryann's Favorite: Leave it to Val to take a stamp set in a different direction than intended!  She used stamps from our masculine Father Knows Best set and made a fun and fabulous feminine card – complete with sparkles!  I’m a sucker for details on a card and this one has a lot of them – right down to the coordinating fuse!

For Val's NEW project today, she's taken her favorite stamp set, Breath of Fresh Flair and paired it up with You Said It, Sister for a "wheelie" fun card!
