Read on for Amy's answers to our interview questions as well as a peek at the cards she's sharing today.

Hi, all! My name is Amy Rohl, and I live in Wisconsin with my husband and our family. During the school year, I work as a school based speech language pathologist and squeeze in crafting time whenever possible. I have been stamping and crafting for 10+ years and love sharing what I create with others on my blog and social media. My favorite technique is incorporating bits and pieces of cool things I see other papercrafters using and I'm inspired by just about anything on Pinterest. I'd describe my style as primarily clean and simple with a sprinkle of something to make you giggle or smile. 

When  did you get hooked on stamping?
I really got hooked on stamping about 10 years ago at a Stampin' Up! party and have always loved the instant (or almost instant) gratification that comes with card-making. 

How often do you stamp?
 On average,  I stamp about 5 days a week.

 What style are you most drawn to creating?
I'm drawn to many different styles, but primarily clean and simple with a fun twist thrown in.

What do you love most about paper crafting?
I love the generosity of the paper crafting community and the ability to individualize your craft to suit your needs, your mood or sometimes the supplies you have on hand. I love being inspired by just about anything and shaping that into some sort of hand crafted item.

What technique or product is currently making your paper crafting heart go pitter patter?
I love the organic nature of water coloring and the forgiveness of the technique.  Naturally, I've fallen in love with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens as my go to color source for water coloring.

A big thank you to Amy for her fabulous spotlights!!!  Be sure to head on over to her blog and give her a shout-out for a chance to win. And stay tuned tomorrow for more from Amy and our other guests during our Release Retrospective Blog Hop!
