Featured Friday Card Maker: Sindi S, Gilbert, AZ

TGIF! Today I have another outstanding crafter to share with you! Please meet and greet Sindi….she doesn’t have a blog yet…but has been thinking about it. Maybe your comments can help nudge her to share more of her art! -Sandy 

How long have you been stamping/card making?    

On and off 10 years. I started with photo scrapbooking, but I could never finish a project.  I met a friend that made cards, I took a few classes– then I was hooked.  I love that you can start and finish a project in the same day.

Do you have a craft room or specific area where you stamp/craft?  

I do. I call it my “office”. I had it built a few years ago specifically for me. I usually stand when I create – so most of the space is countertop height.  I have a lot of countertop space which is good because I am a spreader. It is my favorite room in the house – I am fortunate to have it and it gets used EVERY SINGLE day.

What are your favorite stamp/craft products?  

I am pretty much a Stampin’ Up! girl – I love the coordinating colors. Stamps are by far my favorite. I do love 6 x 6 paper packs too. I save those for long, hot summer weekends. Here in AZ we are just getting ready for the shut-in. July and August are my most creative months.

 Do you have a favorite  technique?   

I am just learning the art of Copic Markers. I am working on building my collection. I have watched a few OWH videos for tips too.

Have any particular OWH sketches or tutorials served as inspiration for your cards?     

Yes, I love the video tutorials – “Start to Finish” and “Triple Play”

 Do you prefer digis or stamps?    

Stamps and ink

SindiS3 Do you have a favorite theme?  

I like nature scenes/flowers/animals. I always try to challenge myself to do more masculine cards. I have a lot of boys in my family and friend circle, so I have to make sure I am always prepared for an occasion.

Are there colors you love to include on your cards?  

I love all colors. Sometimes I will make the same card and use several different color schemes.

How did you hear about Operation Write Home?  

I found myself with a huge stockpile of cards so I started searching for a place to re-home them. OWH caught my attention. At first I didn’t think I was creative enough – but with encouragement from my friends and family – I sent in a box.

What motivates you to make cards for our heroes?

I love that I can  provide this small token for the men and women serving this country. We are providing them with the tools  to hand write a  note to their families and friends – a memento that  may get tucked under their pillow, put on the refrigerator or saved in a special box. I’d like to think that there are thousands of OWH cards being treasured by people all over the United States – not just because they are pretty, but because of the handwritten note inside.
