Welcome to Payne Holler Cards

I spend most of my time just looking around these amazing blogs and occassionally I find an artist that absolutely leaves me speechless. When you take a look at Linda's blog you'll be speechless also. I am amazed that I am the 1st to find and feature her work here at Inspirational Blog. Linda and I want to welcome you to Payne Holler Cards.
I knew when I saw the word HOLLER, this girl was about as country as me. Linda lives in Virginia, works full time after over an hour commute one way , makes time for family, teaches Sunday School, Bible study for women at the local jail and says card making is her relaxer. Can you just imagine her cardmaking when she retires??? She has only been crafting for 30 years can't wait to see what she does the next 30. So let's get started.
I sort of picked out fall looking cards to begin with. I love these colors.











This little fish bowl is one of my favorites. The way the water glistens looks so real. She has tips usually following each card telling the ingredients and how-to's. So be sure and take a look at her blog.



I don't know where to begin describing each card so I'm going to try and spread them out to give you an idea of her amazing talent.
She uses every technique I have ever heard of and some that I have NEVER heard of. Don't worry, she'll be your guide from start to finish. She makes it sound so easy even a beginner could give it a try.



She designed these flowers so lifelike one can almost smell their sweetness. Amazing detail and techniques.








She glitters, sponges, stamps, masks, mats, uses pigment powder, flower soft, copics, negatives, tells you how to add layers that you never realize are even there. She doesn't say but I'm betting she loves animals.



This cat is amazing. Look at those beautiful eyes.



Take a look at this majestic deer, absolutely stunning.



I'll finish up with winter, Tilda and Christmas . I could go on and on but you have to visit her blog, Payne Holler Cards.









I want to thank Linda for allowing me to share her truly awesome creations with you. Just from her work I think she would welcome us to visit, sit awhile and have a cup of coffee. That's just the way of these wonderful people who call these "hollers" home. I already feel that I have a new friend. And YEP....she made her own header. Don't you love it??? One more thing...she says she would love to be on a design team. I expect she will have so many offers she will have to say no to some.
Until next time...keep crafting.

Yes, her blog is so amazing! She is one talented paper crafter and has taken blogging by storm! Did you know that she hasn't been blogging all that longl and has really established her own niche in blog land?? :o) I am always amazed by the techniques she tries and masters so quickly. She is one creative lady over in that holler and I am so blessed to call her my BFF!
