Introducing a New Designer: Rubeena Ianigro + Giveaway

by May Sukyong Park

Badge Card Design TeamHello, crafty friends!

We introduced Norine Borys as one of our new designers a few days ago. Today, we have another very talented designer joining the Altenew family.

If you are a cardmaker, you have most probably heard about her and seen her fabulous design. Please join us in welcoming the amazingly talented Rubeena Ianigro:

Rubeena Ianigro

She is a Pakistani-American married to a U.S. veteran of Italian descent, living in NJ with their newborn daughter and two rather clingy kittens, Jack and Smudge. Rubeena has been paper crafting on and off since 2014 and loves being able to express herself through what she creates. Her style continues to develop as she learns new things and is inspired by other artists and creative people. She loves florals! She has an obsession with watercoloring, paint splatters, word dies, heat-embossing sentiments on black cardstock, gold glitter, and dimensional cards.

When she is not making cards, she likes exploring other coloring mediums, acrylic painting, constantly organizing, DIY projects, reading, writing, listening to motivational speeches, trying to meditate, and, of course, spending time with family and friends. Professionally, she is a licensed social worker who is full of empathy, leans towards peace, kindness, and always manages to see the good in people. She feels incredibly blessed and loves to share with others. 

She was a guest designer in a few of our blog hops and I was completely awestruck by her work and I had to ask her to join our Card Design Team. I have been a big fan of Rubeena, not only as an artist but as a person. I met her at the Creativation craft show in Phoenix last January – she was so lovely!

Here are a few examples of Rubeena's exquisite work:
