Every Friday I try to take the opportunity to introduce you to the wonderful creations of a different Stampin’ Up! demonstrator as part of my Stampin’ Up! Artist of the Week feature.  This week I’d like to introduce you to the talented Patty Chesky.

Patty says: "I’m a stay at home mom and a Stampin‘ Up demonstrator living in Chaska, Minnesota.  I’ve been married to my best friend, Dennis, for 18 years.  We have two teenage children and two Golden Retrievers (one of which is a puppy).  Life gets crazy, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.  My adventure in papercrafting began with scrapbooking over 10 years ago.  A neighbor (now my upline) knew that I loved to scrapbook and craft in general (ceramics, cross-stitch, tole painting….you name it, I’ve probably tried it), and she asked me to join her Stamper’s 10 group.  I was instantly hooked on stamping.  I took the plunge to become a demonstrator over three years ago when my daughter’s friends expressed an interest in attending Kids Stamp Camps.  The joy of teaching someone else a hobby that I am passionate about is truly one of my greatest pleasures. 

My stamping has definitely evolved over the years.  My favorite colors have changed, and  I’ve developed a love for patterned papers and embellishments.  My latest passion is watercoloring.  Is it crazy to admit my giddiness when Stampin’ Up introduces stamp sets just begging to be watercolored with my Aquapainter and reinkers?  Nah….you all understand the addiction, right?    There is nothing like the feeling of making something beautiful from some stamps, ink and paper!!!"

 The card above and the card below were both created and photographed by Patty.  Be sure to take some time to check out all the great projects she has on her blog: A Touch from the Heart.
