Design Team Member ~ Lee Ann Barrett

Hi! my name is Lee Ann Barrett and I live in St Louis, Missouri with my 21 year old son and a devoted
Greyhound named Bella. I have been a crafter as long as I can remember, having done everything from cross stitch to quilting. Scrapbooking became my crafting addiction about 20 years ago. Then I was introduced to stamping a few years back, and cardmaking slowly started taking over my life! I love all styles of crafting, but most everything I do leans towards the classy and elegant style. Being a huge nature lover, I love creating with natural fibers, textures and trees, flowers, leaves and other 'natural' images, especially dies.

When I am not cutting paper or getting inky, I am a school nurse. I also enjoy travelling and photography.

I am thrilled to be a part of the Die~Namites Design Team!

The card I am sharing today makes me think spring,
which so many of us are anxiously waiting for right now!  

I used the Winter Sunflower Die~Namites Die and cut it multiple times in different colors, then pieced the flower together.  A bit of sponging around the leaf edges adds some depth.  I used the Love Arrangement Die~Namites Die and cut it out of vellum, then trimmed oft bits of the leaves/branches and used them as a decorative border between my patterned paper and white card stock. 
I hope I have inspired you!
