We survived another Expo. Thanks to everyone who joined us for a day of fun. We loved the new location
and all the extra space. Paula and Dawn kept busy all day with the make-n-takes. We cut over 300 for expo and now have to get another 300 cut for this coming weekends Bus Tours. Thats a lot of cutting and cardstock!!
We showcased the Quilling flowers at the show and everyone who did that make-n-take got hands-on as to how easy they actually are and fell in love with them as we have. So if spring isn't here yet.....we don't care....we all are making beautiful flowers by the bunches =)
Thanks agian to everyone who came....the event raises money for womens scholarships and its fun. Hope you all gained ideas from the various booths.

used one of the new stamp sets from My Favorite Things on her posting yesterday =) I should have taken a close up photo as well of the tree....it embossed the tree grain in trunk as well. Super cool.
I started out with a different design in mind but it wasn't coming together so I ended up with something entirely different. But after I finished the 1st card then I started to play agian with parts from the former and
ended up with another. So you have a bonus idea today!! (below) I pop dotted the balls on both of the card designs.
The bonus card has distressed edges using the Tim Holtz paper distresser.
Supplies: Changito stamps, Copic markers, My Minds eye paper, CS, Grass border punch, Die-Namics tree die, Amuse ribbon, pop dots.

The finer details were inking edges, adding Spica to the flower and butterfly for some extra shine and curling the edges up for my visual interest.

This card was using a bunch of different tools. If you invested in them...you might as well use them. I dug out
an old flower punch and layered 2 of them and the top one lifted the petals for a 3D effect. Added a gem to center. There was 3 different Spellbinders dies used. Never knew what to do with the teeny one in some of the sets? I stamped a small sentiment, inked edges and it set it apart from the rest of the square.
Supplies:Spellbinder dies, EK punch, Rubber Stamp Tapestry clear set for leaves, Ricrac, Tim Holtz distress inks, Great Impressions cloud template, CS, Hero Arts rounded gem.
Good Luck tonight E-S Cardinal girls!!!!!!!

This one I used the labels die. It is too large to add to a front of card so I made it the front of the card! And then stamped to decorate with peg stamps in various colors. Then added Stickles for the finishing touch along with a bow.
Supplies: Spellbinders dies, Crystal Stickles, Rubber Stamp Tapestry floral set, May Arts ribbon and Versacolor inks.

Anyhoo.....all the coloring on this card is done with Copics as well. Then I showed the gals how to put some blenderless solution on a piece of material and pounce on the jeans and sweater to give it a textured look. Pretty cool and you can not do that with other markers.
Supplies: Basic Grey paper, CS, StampAvie, Copics, brads, EK Success paw punch. Copic colorless blender solution.

With the frame it is an A2 size card. I always lay out an envelope when I am designing an out-of-the-ordinary card so I stay within the envelope size I am working toward. The frame was cut from a Nestabilitie and then stamped using Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamps. I embossed the front of the card then just added the bling. the inside I carried the butterfly theme thru with a butterfly border punch and added a sentiment. A little stickles on the stamped flowers and gems in the silk flowers and poof! A lovely card.
Supplies: Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamps, MS butterfly punch and border punch, Nesties, Cuttlebug embossing folder, May Arts ribbon, Prima flowers, Stickles, Versa Color inks, CS.
