The Dream Team – Designing Inspiring Card Ideas

Frances Edwards -Artist

Frances is a life long artist and has also enjoyed a long career in banking as well.  As a wife and mother she spent 15 years in South East Asia while her children were growing up.  During that time she had the opportunity to take a number of drawing and painting classes expanding upon her artistic talents.  She was blessed to live in  places such as Guam, South Korea, Philipines and Hong Kong.

Nowadays Frances is enjoying retirement and taking time to work in her garden up in Northern California.  She also takes time to go over to Lake Tahoe from time to time to enjoy the beauty and do a little gambling!  Working with Dream In Color Stamps has given her the opportunity to use her artistic skills and get her creative juices flowing!  Her stamps will give you lots of inspiration for cute card ideas of your own.

Donna Lewis - Designer

Dream Team Card Designer

Donna Lewis is an avid card maker, living in rural Australia. She is also a wife, mother, Japanese teacher, oboist and pianist. On top of this, she is trying to live a self-sufficient and zero waste life, producing food for her family from her large garden, which makes for very full days! Donna’s family consists of her super encouraging husband, three terrific children aged from 13 to 20 and Molly the wonder Collie. After a long break from paper crafts, Donna was once again bitten by the crafting bug two years ago when a friend encouraged her to do an online water colour class with her. She has been working hard to squeeze craft time into her busy life ever since!

Donna loves all things papercraft, and especially enjoys colouring (Australian spelling of course!). Her cards tend towards clean and simple (CAS) and Donna enjoys manipulating and combining stamps to come up with unique card ideas.
