Design Team Featured Stamper!

For today we our Featured Stamper is Joy Stagg! Joy is not only an amazing stamper, but she is also a great part of the Artful INKables team! This is her second term as a Senior Design Team member, making this her third term at AI and each term seems to get better and better! So without further ado, here is more about Joy!
Q ~ Married? Kids? Pets?
I have a wonderful DH- we've been married a little over 2 years. I have my fur-baby- Polo, he's a Jack Russell Terrier and anyone who knows me or frequents my blog, knows that I am a total freak about my dog and that he's spoiled ROTTEN!

Q ~ Do you have a job outside of stamping? If so, what do you do?
Yes, I'm a full time mental health and addictions therapist- how appropriate, right!? I supervise addictions programming in 7 counties, do individual and group therapy, and am a state hospital liaison.

Q ~ What got you into stamping?
Like many others, a Stampin' Up party got me hooked! It was right after I graduated college, so without school, stamping took up all that extra time that I was normally in class or doing homework.

Q ~ What is your favorite embellishment and why?
I have to pick one? I love brads, flowers, ribbon, and buttons! And why- because I tend to HOARD everything, lol.

Q ~ What drew you towards Artful Inkables?
This is my 3rd term on the team. I love the images, they're so fun and I love to color. The stamps seem to fit my "style" of stamping, and I love that! I also have the best boss and always have a fab time with the other DT members!

Q ~ Do you have a favorite stamp set from Artful Inkables?
My favorites are the Twilight themed sets, Epic Tales, Fictionally Inspired, and Into the Moonlight.

Q ~ How would you describe your stamping style?
Whimsy and fun. If you look at my cards, I love scallops and nesties- use them on every single card almost!

Q ~ What’s you favorite part of stamping?
I get to escape- It helps me wind down and not think about craziness from work and home. I also have met some fab fab people through stamping!

Q ~ What is your favorite non-card type project?
I love to alter things, which includes making gift sets with all types of items, which you can see regularly on my blog as well.

Q ~ Have you been published?
Yes, I've been published 4, soon to be 5 times in the Hobby Lobby magazine.

Q ~ What is your favorite coloring medium? Why?

Q ~ Tell us about your blog.. ( it all stamping, or a mix of other things?)
My blog, Crazy for Daisies, is mostly stamping. But Polo seems to jump on there a LOT too, wink wink.

Q ~ What is your favorite part of being on a design team?
I love working with the team, the images, and of course- getting to see the sets before they're released!

To pick just one of Joy's creations is a hard task, but I decided to share with you one of her cards using the new Epic Tales set, I know its one of her personal favorites! This card showcases this new set wonderfully, I can certianly see why its one of her favorite stamp sets to use, she seems to rock with every inking!
