Technique-- Is sewing on cards considered a technique? It's one of my favorite things to do these days! I also love the cracked glass technique, it's so gorgeous with flower images!
Colors/color combo-- Lately I seem to pull out various shades of pink more than anything, I guess it's my daughter's influence on me! One of my all-time favorite color combos was one for SCS a while back - Brocade Blue, Bashful Blue & Real Red. In fact, I used it on one of my Wee Tees cards! (<---click that for another totally cute sample-eeek!)
Gina K sets (from any illustrator)-- Again, so hard to narrow down. I am so in love with the orchid image in Asela's Botanical Dreams set. And another of my all-time favorites is an older one from Gina - Whimsical Valentine! I adore the mice, and bugs are so cute, and I just LOVE that she included "You complete me" as a sentiment!!
Craft supplies I can’t live without— My Copics!! What did I do before these came along? I'm also a wee bit of a polka dot fanatic, I am nearly always drawn to polka dot DP or feel the need to add some Cuttlebug Swiss Dots. It's really a bit of an addiction, I probably need to seek professional help...
I've been stamping for (how long)— I started out a scrapbooker, but got invited to one of those in-home parties (I think you know which one I mean!!) and so began my obsession! I actually still have the order form from that first party!!
I get my inspiration from-- I'm also a challenge junkie, I love playing them!! Both the wonderful challenges on Splitcoast, and the various blog challenges. It definitely gets my creative juices flowing!
The most important things I’ve learned about stamping/cardmaking/scrapbooking are— There are so many talented stampers out there, and it can get a little discouraging at times when you look at how talented they are, and start to think you just don't compare. But, you have to keep it all in perspective. As long as you enjoy what you do, who cares if you'll never be a Debbie Olson or Amy Sheffer (two of my idols, btw) :-) I have a quote at the top of my blog that pretty much sums it up best... "Use what talent you posess: The world would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best." - Henry Van Dyke
Some of my stamping/crafting goals are--. To get published in a magazine (but it would help immensely if I actually started SUBMITTING stuff!!!) and to be featured on some of my favorite blogs. I can check this one off the list, YAY!!!!
Some of my stamping/crafting accomplishments are— I've been lucky enough to be on two design teams.
Tell us a little about “Courtney’s Closet”! I started this challenge nearly a year ago, when my baby girl was three months old. I just kept looking at her clothes - baby clothes are THE CUTEST - and thinking "wow this would make such a cute card!!". So one day I went ahead and made a card inspired by her outfit, and invited others to play along. And much to my amazement, some wonderful ladies have played along! It's been so much fun this past year!! (and a little teaser - I think I'm going to have to throw a one year anniversary party for my challenge in a couple weeks - tune in for that!) :-)
