About Me

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!

Oozak GDT Celebrations

Omg! I was so excited to see that I had been picked to be a GDT for the Oozak Challenge Blog. There is always some amazing DT inspiration here.  And who doesn't love the Oozak products? The challenge this week is Anything Goes with Celebrations.  One of my friends is celebrating her birthday so I thought it was the perfect time to make her birthday card.

I used part of this adorable stamp set by Saturated Canary called Harley and Haley.  She was so much fun to color with my promarkers with my favorite colors, blue and pink.  I used paper from my stash.  The papers have been distressed with the Tim Holtz distressing tool.  I think I am finally getting the hand of how to use it correctly.  Liquid pearls were used around the image.  Aren't they adorable? I need to get some more colors for sure.  The bow was handmade by me! The flowers were a gift from a friend.  The leaves are die cuts from a Sizzix die.  The banner is also from a Sizzix die and stamp matching set along with the sentiment.  I inked the edges and stamped the sentiment with Tim Holtz tattered rose distress ink.  The oozak products I used for this card are the Saturated Canary stamp, Tim Holtz distress ink and the AVG scotch tape with gun. All the products are located here. Remember the prices are at discounts already and they often have more sales on top of that. I am a frequent shopper!

Here is a close up of my colored image.  I have been watching a lot of tutorials and practicing my color blending.  I think I am finally getting a bit better!
