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!

Make a Scene - Hobbycutz

OMG!!! I have been accepted to the Hobbycutz challenge blog design team! I can't believe it. I am so excited to be a part of this team and work with their products.  I have placed my order but since I live in the USA they haven't arrived yet.  You can bet I will be playing with them as soon as they get here!

Our current challenge is Make a Scene.  Our sponsor this week is The Stamping Chef!

Here is my DT card:

For this challenge I was lucky enough to get to work with Jenna from The Stamping Chef. She was so much fun to color with my promarkers.  I have really been working on my blending skills.  I think I am FINALLY getting the hang of it.  I made the background with a diamond rubber stamp from Stampin Up. I added liquid pearls all over the card. Boy did that take forever but I love the results! I fussy cut Jenna and popped her up with foam dots.  The sentiment was stamped from a Pebbles set and fussy cut out.  The flowers are from WOC.  I really enjoyed making this card for my first time with the Hobbycutz DT.

Here is a close up of my coloring getting better and look at all those pearls:
