Wedding Themed Cards

This image is from the "Wedding Bells" plate. These two look like silent movie stars!

This card features the "Just Married" single stamp. I love this couple, they're too cute!

Hi! My name is Karen Fisher, and I've been invited to join the Stampsmith blog as a guest artist this month! I thank Kim for all of her kind words regarding my work. She posted my Audrey Hepburn card back in May. I thank Estelle for her fabulous stamps. She lives only 15 minutes from me, and I've been attending her local stamp show for years.

As an interior designer turned stay-at-home mom, I needed another outlet for my creativity. A friend introduced me to rubber stamping, and the rest is history. I find that my art reflects my training as a designer, in that I color coordinate my papers, ink and images as I would decorate a room with wallpaper, fabric and paint. I love collecting vintage ephemera and incorporating it into my work.

I am looking forward to participating with all of you talented artists. I hope I can keep up!

Lovely cards, Karen. I particularly like the non traditional colours of the Wedding Bells one.

Karen, these cards are stunning! I'm so excited to have you here and beyond tickled of the coincidence that we are practically neighbors. Now I understand why your front porch and garden are so gorgeous - you're an interior, and exterior, designer! See you at the show in November! Estelle
