Hello! Introducing Myself

Introducing Jenn Shurkus| shurkus.com

Hello Everyone! Jenn Shurkus here and I am wicked excited to be part of the Sweet Stamp Shop Design Team!! I thought I would use my first post to introduce my crafty self. In order to do that I also need to introduce you to Mister Harley, since he is my “quality control manager” πŸ˜‰

Introducing Mister Harley | Jenn Shurkus, shurkus.comMister Harley and I live in New England. I have been papercrafting for 15 years. Mister Harley is a bit of a newbie to this craft and has only been supervising for 6 years now.Β  I have played multiple roles in the papercrafting industry but focus my time now as a designer and teacher.Β  I love to show people new and clever ideas to design your cards and projects. I try to design my projects to inspire you, but not intimidate you. I am eager to share with you my creative passions and encourage your artistic growth!

And on a side note I love all things nautical, summer, teal and flip flop related!

The very first set that jumped out to me from the Sweet Stamp Shop was Kitty Kat. Being a cat lover, I knew I just NEEDED this set. It is designed perfectly to be able to color it to match any special kitty in your life. You can see here I colored it with my watercolor pencils to look just like Mister Harley. I tried to emphasize just how pink Mister Harley’s ears and nose are- I just think it is SO cute!

I also adore typography and lowercase letters are my favorite! Outline Lower Alpha is perfect for my obsession, and perfect to be able to add any sort of simple greeting to your card. I think anytime you color something in rainbow order it puts a smile on everyone’s face. I also added a bit of sparkle with a clear Wink of Stella pen. The Speech Bubbles set is really fun, and I love the variety of bubbles in the set.

    the little mouse on the card really adds to the design. Great card.
    Don’t have a cat – just Bear (a yorkie) so I have to watch out when I use cat stamps. Bear gets upset.
