Team Tuesday - Giovana Smith

We first met our next designer, Giovana, on Splitcoast. Her incredibly artistic work got her a spot on the Dirty Dozen design team, and she has an incredible portfolio of beautiful cards. A kind spirit and a great sense of humor make her the perfect addition to our team. We know you will love getting to know her and her work, so here she is in her own words.


Hello everyone!! I am Giovana Smith, born and raised in Lima, Peru. I have always loved any type of craft. Learned to knit and cross stitch at a very young age, then thanks to my mom I learned the basic of sewing, just little scraps of fabric, a needle and thread and I was a happy camper making dresses for my dolls. Moving forward, it was 2006, I didn't have time to cross stitch anymore since my little girl was into everything, that Summer I needed a card for a Baby Shower but didn't have time to go to the store so I took one of the little cross stitch squares I had and cut cardstock with my fabric scissors (oh my!) and I made a card!! After that, I started checking online if cardmaking was "a thing" and I found Splitcoaststampers and the rest is history.  I've been paper crafting since, I have learned techniques, tricks and much more, I don't have just one style, I like to explore into different things.  I am so excited to be part of My Sweet Petunia team and share with you guys different techniques using the wonderful MISTI and Creative Corners.


Details about this card.

I love this stamp from Impression Obsession, it is a big stamp so I really needed my MISTI to have a perfect impression, no more wasting paper!  I stamped the images a couple of stamps in Versamark Ink, then colored it with markers, it was trimmed to fit an A2 size card. The graded paper also helped me to add the die-cut sentiment perfectly straight.
You can visit my blog "Believe" for more projects and inspiration Thanks so much again for stopping by and I can't wait to share more projects with you!
