Hambly Design Team Blog Hop!

Good morning, and welcome to the Hambly Design Team Blog Hop!

We'd like to introduce you to the new design team members through a blog hop (and giveaway!). Visit all 16 designer's blogs, where you can read a little bit about each member and see a project and/or tip about Hambly products. Leave a comment on each of their blog hop posts, then go to the Hambly blog and leave a comment. On Dec. 19th, 2011 at 12 noon PST we will randomly pick and announce the winners on the Hambly Blog.

This should be a lot of fun, since each designer is posting 10 random facts on their blogs.  Followers of mine probably already know most of these things about me, but here they are for anyone new who might be stopping by!

1.  I work full time as an elementary music teacher, and I teach private lessons most days after school
2.  I play many instruments including the viola, violin, flute, and piano
3.  My favorite way to spend a sunny afternoon is skateboarding with my husband in Boston
4.  I love to paint watercolor fashion illustrations
5.  No kids or pets (yet!)
6.  I hope to skydive one day
7.  My handwriting was used for the opening credits in a movie
8.  I’ve been a video gamer for as long as I can remember...my favorite games are the Castlevania and Mario Brothers series.
9.  Although I love listening to classical music, my favorite bands are Metallica and A Perfect Circle.
10.  I wish I knew how to dance!

...And now onto the projects! The first one uses some white Holiday Reindeer rub-ons. Although it's a little hard to see in the pic, I rubbed them onto metallic silvery cardstock. The sentiment is embossed in white, and I made the "snow" from layering hand-cut cardstock with foam tape:

(sadly, this card didn't make it into Card Creations Vol. 10.  boohoo!)

My next card features a negative die cut layered with what might be my favorite overlay.  I had fun trying different ones behind the cutout, and I just loved the look of the Lattice!

 And lastly, I have one more card with a rub-on.  This one is a silver Apothecary Jar.  Oh my gosh...I can think of so many things to "fill" these awesome rub-ons!  For this card, I printed and cut out peppermint candies, applied some glossy accents, and popped them on with foam tape.  For the sentiment, I printed "have a" and "Christmas," and applied glitter letters for the "sweet."  Lastly, I applied a strip of Hambly washi tape across the bottom.

Make sure to check out the other DT gals....I know I sure will!
