Funky Birthday and a Question for YOU!

A hip birthday wish---As you know by now....I don't really seem to stick to one style of cards. I get bored doing the same types of cards all the time and find that when I change it up I inspire more creativity!
This card was created with some negative chipboard, some basic grey paper and stickers---a quick and fun birthday wish!

Now...a question for you! As I am planning some posts for the year, I want to know what you want to see/hear about on my blog. If there is anything you can think of, please let me know and I will see what I can do.

Coming soon:
How to submit cards for publication
A Scor-Pal Mat Giveaway....

Thanks for stopping by!

What I would like to see is instructions on how to use certain items. For example- How to get an embossed look on your cards using Cuttlebug? How to use Copics or any new technique in that respect.
Thanks

I love the idea of some ideas on submitting cards for publication! There are so many wonderful stampers and projects, I don't know how they choose certain cards. It is a personal goal of mine to eventually get published, I'm just fairly new to this whole process!

I also like altered projects!

I stop by your blog frequently, thank you for your cheery words and inspiring projects!!

I love this fun and funky card Carolyn!! It doesn't matter what you create...I'll be learning from you! :) I love that you mix it up!

Like Megan said, I love altered products and taking normal things you find around the house and making them into something beautiful and creative. Your cards always make me ooh and ahh.

I would love to learn anything you want to teach - but I am interested in how to submit. I'm also interested to know how to grow and improve as a stamper (beyond doing challenges and studying others work).

Great card! I am a subscriber to your blog and love that you mix it up. I never know from one day to the next what you will be posting. How about a q and a session once a month? I am sure you get lots of questions. I like to know what every one else is asking too. My question for today is what do you do with all your wonderful cards?

I'd love to see technique highlights with tutorials! And...I'll admit it...I'm always a sucker for a great giveaway!

jules p said...

Well...i like your tutorials. And they could be about anything (die cutting & ways to use them, a marker/colored pencil tutorial, uses paper punches in various ways etc)

But you do a fantastic job now. So it is hard to offer advice to you on this. Your blog is fabulous!

Terri E. said...

First of all I just got Dr. Feelgood for my hubby. Love it!!! I love you since of humor and how you convey that into cards. I would love to see you create more sets and cards with that in mind. Of course I love it all, just my thought.

It's a good life!

Great card! You never post a bad project so I love everything on your Blog (: I would love to see tutorials on new techniques or product uses. I am a tutorial junkie (: Hope you are having a great day!

Jules said...

I'm very new to making cards and having my own blog so I would love to hear tips about what to do (and perhaps not do) to get asked to be on design teams.

Thanks for the opportunity to offer suggestions for your blog content!

Marilyn Hitterman said...

I don't know how popular a subject this would be but I'd like to know if the majority of your card designs are based on the layouts of others or do you plan your own layout with each card you make. I didn't know until several months ago that there were oodles of layouts published in magazines, books, and on the web. Boy, it sure cuts down on the time needed to think up a card's design layout when you're stuck!

Kim B. said...

Love your work, and your blog, Cammie! Your tutorials are fabulous. Anything you want to share is appreciated!

Rose Ann said...

I love what you've done with your negative chipboard, and the pretty papers!! Changing things up keeps in interesting, and I LOVE that!!

As far as your blog...post what you like. You've been doing a fantastic job at what you're doing. *wink*

Karolyn Loncon said...

Hi Cammie! I love everything you do (sorry I'm so bad about commenting, but I really DO love your stuff!), but I'd love to see more altered projects, treat holders, etc.

Vicki (basement stamper) said...

This is so cute!! I love it!! I think that pretty much anything you create will work enough for me to learn something from you!! You're so creative! TFS! :)

Alyssa said...

I would love to learn how to correctly and fully cover a clipboard. I can't get the paper right up against the clip thingy (tech term) :) at the top.

Megan said...

I hope you get your space organized and let us SEE it!! I would love to see where your creating happens. I'm one of those nosy bloggers who likes to know all about people--just like I would IRL--it's like getting to know people that much better :)

Corie said...

I just love this card -- so FANTASTIC
