Meet Iwona "Chupa" Palamountain

Rounding out the newest Wplus9 Designers is Chupa Palamountain!

"My name is Iwona Palamountain, I’m also known by my nickname Chupa.

I’m a mum to two beautiful girls, a preschooler and a toddler. I’ve got a truly amazing husband who gives me all the understanding and support I need. I call Australia home, but I come from Poland where I spent a big part of my life.

When I'm not running after my girls, I like to retreat to my craft room and stamp away! Card making is a passion that has been going strong for over four years.

I'm excited to join the WPlus9 family and I hope to bring you inspiration."

Chupa's personal blog: Random Acts of Creativity.

It's Chupa's turn this week to share her designs with us featuring our April 2014 Release. She has such a unique and creative style that I'm sure you are going to love.

Here are just a couple that have really inspired me.

Chupa has such a fantastic eye for layering! I'd say it flirts a bit with the eclectic side. Yet, it is still so incredibly feminine.

This card is a perfect example of the many reasons that I love her work. She's used Spring Blooms and Strictly Sentiments 4 beautifully here. The colors are amazing, and the organic flow of the layout paired with the linear stripes really grabbed my attention.


The next card that really drew me in was another floral mixed with bold and graphic. Surprise, surprise! LOL

I think you all know why I love this. I'm such a sucker for this combination.

The large sentiment from Hand Lettered Hello not only holds it own, but stands out against the bold pattern from Borders & Backgrounds 4, while the little blooms add a punch of color and interest.

And that silver embossing takes it to the next level.

This is just a taste of what Chupa will be bringing this week.

I hope that you will join me in welcoming her to Wplus9. I have been such a fan of her for quite some time and I am so excited to be working with her!
