We are so excited to introduce you to our next featured crew member in our ongoing CCB series where we feature a member of the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew. These spotlights allow us to show you a glimpse into the creative world of our designers. What inspires them to create, which mediums they enjoy using and their favorite projects.  We work with such a great crew of talented designers who come from a wide variety of artistic backgrounds.  This brings so much diversity to our team who love to share their latest techniques and give useful ways to use art supplies. But the most exciting part of our journey is that our crew can be found around the entire globe. This allows us to travel the world to learn about their culture, to explore their local trends and experience their creative style.  Today our journey takes us to the gorgeous mountain region of Florence, Arizona whose community is celebrating their 150th year anniversary. Here we introduce you to the fabulous artist, Amber Rasmussen. Below is a photo from Poston Butte in Florence, courtesy of Wikipedia.

Amber is a 31 year old card maker and scrapbook paper enthusiast who lives in Florence with her high school sweetheart Jason and their two little fur babies, Pookie and Lexis. What makes Amber so amazing is her love for paper and the projects she creates from it. Amber whose been with us since 2014, makes an incredible addition to our CCB Crew. She brings such a burst of creativity and colorful whim to our team.  Her talent with paper, rubber stamps and ink fills us with so much inspiration, she makes us want to get out the rubber stamps and start stamping.

We adult coloring being such a huge hit, rubber stamping is a great way to start coloring using ink, markers and pencils. Amber’s creations are the perfect way to get you into a world of coloring which she brings to life through layers of paper, paint and ink. We are so excited that she is apart of our creative journey and that we are able to share her world with you. Our story continues to be told through not only our products, but through our incredible crew, like our featured crew member Amber.

Everyone of our Crew Members was asked to create a 4×4 Canvas that represents themselves and their personal style. In Amber’s case this canvas is also her favorite piece of artwork that she has created using Canvas Corp Brands Products. Its know wonder she loves it, because we do too. Its simply magical, gorgeous.

Amber’s design style can best be described as…”I am an avid card maker and scrapbooker. I like to explore different styles but if I had to describe my crafting style I would say its clean & simple but fun & cute. There isn’t a material or technique I won’t try at least once!”

Amber was inspired most to be creative by….”I  find many different Bloggers so inspiring theses days so its hard to choose just one. I love seeing what others are doing with their crafty supplies and what techniques their trying.”

What inspires you most today?  “Definitely Pinterest! Pinterest is so great because I can search for a certain inspiration piece, color palette, or sketch all in one place.”

What is your favorite Canvas Corp Brand Product? “It’s always so hard to choose a favorite. I would have to say my favorite is Canvas Corp’s Burlap & Canvas Fabrics. They can be used in so many different ways for so many projects. You can create your own ribbon, flowers, bags, mini albums, use it to add texture or even color to a project. There are so many different color, texture, and pattern options available in the shop perfect for all your scrapbooking, paper crafting, mixed media and DIY projects. I used one of the 13 x 17 fabric panels to create one of my favorite projects below!”

What is one of your favorite Canvas Corp Brands Projects you have created? 

“My favorite project so far would have to be the handmade canvas Baby Girl Album I created. I really challenged myself and stepped way outside my comfort zone to create this. I don’t do a lot of stitching unless its on a card or layout so this project was a bit tricky in the beginning but I just went with it and it turned out wonderfully and has got me reaching for my sewing machine more often.”

I am the happiest doing…..”I am happiest relaxing at home with my better half and stamping my heart out in my little craft studio.”

My favorite place to be creative…..” Is in my sometimes clean sometimes messy little craft studio!

Share with us anything about your creative life that you feel would inspire others….”I love creating things for other people, and I enjoy the process of working with my hands, creating and learning as I go. I’m so happy to continue this adventure with Canvas Corp Brands this year.!”
