A Creative Blog Hop


Dear Friends,

Today I am doing a little something different. A Stampin' Up! friend of mine invited me to participate in a creative blog hop. I have been asked to create a crafty project and answer 4 crafty questions. Then at the end of my post I will nominate 2 of my friends to participate in the blog hop next week. First my "get to know ya" questions.....

        •  What are you working on?
Currently I am working with The Paper Nest Design Team as well as promoting myself as a Stampin' UP! Demonstrator. I signed up for Stampin' UP! because I love the quality of the products. Their paper, inks, and stamps are some of the best in the business. They also color coordinate their products into 4 color families which makes creating a lot easier.
        •  How does your work differ from others in your genre?
My work varies from super simple to super intricate.  My passions are always challenging me, because I do love a challenge. I am very much a team player which is why I love design team work. I also use both DT work along with SU! work as a motivator to stay active in my love of paper crafting.
        •  Why do you create what you do?  
Because a handmade card is made with love and it means something to the recipient. Creativity has always been a part of me no matter the project. I always strive for greatness and a lot of times I even surprise myself. 
        •  How does your creative process work?
Everything revolves around color. I love matching papers with embellishments, with inks and mediums. It all begins with a color scheme in my head. Before I even begin coloring a stamp I envision the color scheme and I choose my papers. Once my papers are chosen then I color my image. When that is complete I choose my embellishments and complete the card. That is the beauty of Stampin' UP! is that all their supplies coordinate so with them it all begins with a piece of designer paper. 
I have asked Sharon Noble over at Creative Ramblings and Tammy Louise over at Handmade by TLC to follow me in this blog hop. I want to thank Marcee Rodgers over at the Craft Bin blog for asking me to participate.
Now on to today's project.

One of my favorite color combinations is purple and green and Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive are a perfect Su! Inks and papers for this. I have used Stampin' Up!'s Blendabilities to color the focal flower and have used a Sentiment from the "Flower Shop" Stamp set along with two of Stampin' Up!'s amazing punches, Decorative Label and Modern Label.
