We have 4 amazing and talented women working behind the scenes on our current release to introduce you too! We couldn't be more impressed or more pleased to get to learn more about these incredible ladies! Most of our Guest Designers are from our very own fan group, this release!
So, I'd like to get the ball rolling and introduce you to Joanne Soukup, Joanne owns Perky Penny Paper Arts. She was the one who instigated our friendship, and I'm ever so glad that she did! I have discovered a kindred spirit in her!

Hi I’m Joanne Soukup, proud owner of Perky Penny Paper Arts, named for my sweet little best friend Penny who sits with me while I make cards. I have been card making since 2012 when I took a class at Archivers in hopes of eventually being able to make wedding invitations for my daughter (they turned out great!). I was hooked from the get go. I love stamping because I don’t fancy myself an artist so stamps help my creativity come to life.
Joanne's favorite works are:
I just LOVE this project so much!!!

Next up we have Salima Abdullah! Salima is a friend of one of our Creative Team Members, the two of them have their roots in Stamp'n Up and it is neat to see that they've evolved together. I just love the friendships forged here in the crafting community!
I became interested in making homemade cards in 2007 when I met a Stampin Up demonstrator with whom I worked with. My primary days were me just acclimating myself to the love of stamping. I grew as a stamper and my passion for making someone smile with a personalized hand stamped card brought so much joy to me. I enjoy learning new techniques, although embossing and water coloring are my most favorite. My sources for learning new products and technique are YouTube, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Split Coast Stampers. When I am unable to stamp, I feel a void inside of me. I love sharing my new ideas and my new techniques also. I am a mother of 3 handsome men, a full time Licensed Practical Nurse and a part-time student to achieve my Registered Nursing Degree. I was born in Uganda, Africa and was a refugee to the United States in the early 70's. I am a Muslim by faith and love everyone and everything that God has made. He has provided everyone as a blessing and I treasure the gift that He has bestowed upon me.

Hi. I’m Hayley Warren. I have 3 wonderful boys, and I am a stay at home Mum.
I have been crafting for many years. My main passion, is card making, and I particularly enjoy using stamps (both digital and clear) and colouring them using a variety of mediums, although I prefer using alcohol markers and distress inks.
I am honoured to be a guest designer for Kindred Stamps.
Last, but not least, we have Rianna Fenning! Rianna is one of the sweetest people I know! Talking to her is like talking to a younger sister, she's always wanting insight on what she can improve on, and is always looking for inspiration, she's constantly wanting to grow.
Hi everyone, my name is Rianna and I'm a 21-year-old from Australia.. I am a bit of an art and craft geek, I absolutely LOVE stationery, bunnies, owls, planners and journals, stamping, cardmaking, crafting, painting, drawing, shopping and many more things. I have a fur baby named Casper who is a 3-year-old Netherland Dwarf Rabbit who likes to 'help' me craft. This is my first-time guest designing for Kindred Stamps, thank you so much for the opportunity!
