Featuring Zubaida

Hey ladies!! I've accidentally found today's star in cyber world and to my surprise discovered that she stays not far from my place ;) Though she's a newbie in card making yet her creations are quite awe-inspiring!! Will not let you wait for long, pls welcome zub momi...

 Name: Zubaida

1. Tell us a little about yourself and your family.
I am from Pakistan, married and have two lovely daughters. I have been residing in Abu Dhabi for the last 14 years now. I truly enjoy the family life here as it also gives me time to do craft work. 
2. How and when did you start crafting?
I have been doing crafting since my school days and have always loved arts and crafts like coloring, painting and drawing. Making cards/paper projects is a new challenge for me as I started this a year ago. Prior to this I used to paint.    
3. From where do you draw your inspiration?
My main inspiration comes from seasons, festivals, occasions, nature and my two girls. Also, flowers of various different colors inspire me to create projects. 
4. How would you describe your style?
Being a newbie, I am still trying to discover my style. However I try to use a combination of colors, patterns and layers that look soothing on the eye and give joy. I like to be as detailed as possible on the cards/project that I make. I enjoy detailed work.

5. What are the 5 top tools in your crafting space?
I use silhouette cameo, distress ink and various types of markers for coloring. I also use stamp and embossing heat tool.

6. What’s your favorite technique?
I think my favorite technique is trying to give the project as much 3 dimensional look as possible via various layers. 

7. What are your go-to colors?
I really don’t have any go to colors as such. I try and use colors by my mood :)

8. Do you sell your projects?
I have not thought about selling my projects as yet. I think I still have a long way to go before I can think about selling the cards.

9. What do you do when you aren’t crafting? Job? Other hobbies and interests?
When I am not at my crafting table, I’m usually doing some kind of project with my kids. I also enjoy painting as it gives me many colors to play with. 

10. Are you currently designing for any blog?
I recently completed three months as a design team member for one of the blogs. I had fun doing it but right now I am taking a break from it as I want to create projects from my own ideas. 

Aren't these so cute?! Lots of clean layers, pretty embellies and perfect finishes!! I really doubt if Zubaida has been making cards for only one year, you're such a talent!! Thank you dear for giving us the chance to learn more about you and thanks to all leaving some love here,,, Great time =)
