About Me

My photo

Hi everyone! I am a veterinary technician living in NY who loves to pen pal and make cards in my spare time. I have never been good at crafts since I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler but I was determined to give it a go.  I love learning all the different techniques and ways to craft. Follow me on my journey as I grow as a card maker!

Snowman Pin Up

Whew, four posts for me this weekend! I sure have been a very busy crafty bee! It's time for a new challenge at Challenges 4 everybody. As always our theme is anything goes.  How easy is that? Our sponsor for this challenge is Sassy Studio Designs who are offering 4 images from their store! They have amazing digital stamps.  So many that I want to add to my own collection.

Here is my DT card:

I was lucky enough to work with this amazing snow man pin up digi. I have been wanting to color her for awhile now and was so excited to finally use her.  I colored her with Promarkers and a few Spectrum Noir.   A gel glitter pen added the sparkle to her hat and dress.  I glued super tiny gems for buttons and on the top of her boots. Thank goodness for my amazing gel picker because those suckers are hard to work with. I used papers from my stash.  I added some twine and a snowflake die cut to make the design on the bottom.  I die cut some leaves to add under the flowers.  The flowers were a recent addition to my stash that I got  from WOC.  I love them.  I only wish I could have ordered more from them.  I bought many different sizes in white so I could color them with promarkers to match my projects.  I added some stickles for extra shine on the finished flowers.  The sentiment was stamped from a Studio G clear stamp sentiment set that I have.  I used the sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy for my card layout.

I really hope you have enjoyed my card. We would love to have you link up your projects with our challenge.  Remember it's Anything Goes! If you would like more inspiration check out what my team mates have whipped up for you this week!
