Young Crafters Unite - blog hop!

Welcome to my blog and thanks for 'hoppin' along with the Young Crafters Unite hop. If you're following the hop, you just came from Kathy's blog and now I welcome you.
What makes me a young crafter?
I feel like I am a young crafter due to my limited experience in the 'world' of crafting.  I've been crafting in my own room for over a decade without really exposing myself to see what others were doing, what the trends are, what new techniques and products were out there.  I tend to teach myself, but along those lines I'm teaching myself to keep up with some of the papercrafting 'world' and I am learning oh so much!  I also am trying to inspire others as much as I can, which started with this blog and my You Tube channel.  (I hope my age also qualifies me...I just turned the big 3-0)
On with my card.  My favorite thing is STAMPS and the colors kraft, chocolate chip, and cherry cobbler red!  I currently use stamps on every project I make whether that be a card or scrapbook layout.  I love their versatility and there are so many great designs out there - the uses are endless.  So, here's the card I created using stamps and my 3 favorite crafting colors. I hope you like it.  I'm also really liking Crystal Effects (Glossy Accents).
Scroll down for my video tutorial as well and for details on the blog hop giveaway and the link to the next stop on this blog hop - Karen's blog!
 




To be entered in for this blog hop giveaway of gift certificates for stamps, please leave me a comment before July 4th - winner will be announced Wednesday July 6th.  I appreciate your words of encouragement.  Thank you for stopping by.  On to the next blog: Karen's blog
