If you are hopping along, you should have made your way here from Deena's Blog. If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please head over to www.youngcraftersunite.com! The blog hop starts at 12:00 PM CST on July 1st! =)
So what makes me a young crafter? Well, I'm only 27 so my age qualifies me as pretty young, but also I definitely have a very fun, whimsical and vibrant style that gives my cards a cutesy and young feeling! I truly believe that my personality is that of someone that will always be young at heart no matter how old I get, and that I show that style often through my paper crafts! =)
For this blog hop, I chose to feature two of my three favorite stamping companies. I also tried to use many of my favorite products to make these two cards.
When I really got back into card making about a year ago, two stamp companies really stood out to me and caught my eye as fitting my style! The first was DeNami Design! If you've never checked out their awesome, high quailty, adorable rubber stamps, you should! DeNami has a fabulous style and is known for their cute and whimsical images, especially animals:
The second stamp company that caught my eye when I started blogging is ALSO super whimsical, fun, full of animal images, and easy to paper piece! That's right, it's Lawn Fawn! =) Lawn Fawn has super high quality photopolymer clear stamps that are fun and easy to use! Again, I chose animals (and birds too, I do like birds on cards) and did a lot of paper piecing:
Finally, there are TWO favorite items that I have that I use ALL of the time but that didn't make it on either card, and I wanted to take a second to share those items with you because they both rock! First are my handmade clay embellishments that I make with my molds from MoldMuse. These molds are SO easy to use and produce beautiful embellishments:
OK! I know that was a long post but in the past few years I've learned a lot and have a lot of favorites and I wanted to pay homage to them all correctly! =) It's time to hop along to Jillian's blog! Thanks for stopping by, happy hopping young crafters! =)
