2017 Scrapbook Expo Duluth Georgia Card Swap

Getting a few cards made for this year Scrapbook Expo Card Swap on Saturday here in Duluth Georgia. Be sure to check out my previous two post for additional cards.


I am enjoying this Darcie’s Fairy Tales stamp set. I am keeping the coloring simple and using a simple color pallet. 


 The background is Sizzix Paisley embossing folder. This card swap theme is embossing folders or bling. I plan to add a little bling once I get them all done. 


The heart shape was cut from Stampin Up! Heart dies using my scrapsof gold paper. 

Happy stamping to all!

Scrapbook Expo 2017 Saturday Card Swap Ideas


Back for another card for the Duluth, Georgia Saturday Scrapbook Expo Card Swap. Keeping it simple and will add some bling later once I have them all done.

This is a Darcie’s Fairy Tales stamp set. The stamped images were fussy cut. Really need that ScanNCut! 


A Sizzx Paisley embossing folder, a label cut form gold scraps, and the perfect sentiment from MayMay Made It Just Wanted You To Know stamp set.

Stamping is much more satisfying using the Misti. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves to stamp.

Happy stamping!

Scrapbook Expo Card Swap 2017 Duluth GA


This years (2017) Saturday card swap theme is using embossing folders or bling. I had some time in my stampin studio this weekend with the older grands and was able to make three cards for the swap. I decided I need to keep it simple and if I have time I can always add more bling at the last minute.

I have Darcie’s Fairy Tales stamp set that hadn’t been inked from last years Expo shopping so I gave it some ink love using Memento Black ink and my Misti. 


Simple coloring with markers, gel pens, and Wink of Stella clear pen. A paisley Sizzix embossing folder ran through my Cuttlebug on Neenah White 110# card stock once. The sentiment is from a MayMay Made It stamp club set. I think it’s called Wanted You To Know but that may not be correct.


Using scraps of gold card stock I cut a label to mount this adorable Unicorn on. I had to fussy cut this stamped image, but maybe a ScanNCut will be in my future soon. 

Happy stamping to all! I

I’ll be back with another card soon!

Christmas Cardinal Card Featuring To You And Yours Stamp – Close To My Heart

Hello Crafty Friends,

It’s been a whirlwind week around here, but I did manage to get a few Christmas cards done and two videos feature two different color techniques.

The first video is using markers to color my stamped image. I stamped the image using my large Fiskars stamp press and Momento Tuxedo Black ink.

I used the Art Philosophy Cricut Bundle to cut my two layers of circles to go on top of the scalloped Nestabilities die that was cut from white glitter paper from DCWV.

When these paper stacks go on sale, you need to snatch them up! They are perfect for Nestabilites and your Cricut.

Each of the holly berry leaves is stamped and colored with the markers and then fussy cut 3 times for each card. It’s worth it but time consuming. A good thing to do while watching tv. I used two on the outside of the card and saved one for the inside.

The 2nd card was made using watercolor crayons in my stash. You can watch the video HERE.

Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a very blessed and crafty week!

Hello and happy Monday! Today I’m sharing a video tutorial I taped yesterday while making these adorable Thank You cards from the Artiste Cricut Collection available HERE!

Here is Part 1 of the video.

These cards are so easy and you can jazz them up quite easily!

Cut at 3.75 in height three will fit on a 12X12 mat.

20130728-114314.jpg
Decorating the inside mat (3 1/8X3.5) is easy using the stamp off technique and your favorite stamp set. I used the Flirty Scrapbooking Workshop C1515 from Close To My Heart.

Lets watch the rest of the tutorial in Part 2.

What I appreciate about the cards on the Artiste Cricut Collection is that you can leave them as simple as they are, or you can dress them up using what supplies you have.

I made two more that I used the Two Way bird punch from Stsmpin Up and some scraps of metallic papers. I added some turquoise card stock for the backing and now I have two more thank you cards for my stash!
