Card Frenzy for Everything Scrapp'n'

Well I guess you've heard the news that Everything Scrapp'n' is going out of business.   Heather needs to focus on family & can't give the business the attention it needs.  So everything is on sale right now - head on over for the best selections as there is still lots of the latest/greatest new products left.

I have been making lots of cards lately so that is what I will be sharing with you....
Note not all of the supplies are in stock at ES anymore.

My sister has been in the hospital for almost 3 weeks so she has been getting quite a few of these cards.

She wanted a funny card & I've been crazy about turquoise/green/orange color combo lately...



Distressed Inks are a favorite supply since you can do so much with them....
They make it so easy to get the antiqued look to plain inexpensive white cardstock


I always here scrapbookers say that they can't make cards because they don't have stamps... well using the tag paper from Pink Paislee you can easily make a quick card without any stamps.

I'm totally obsessed with these paper "yo-yo's" right now.  They are super easy to make by according folding a strip of paper then gluing down to a circle.  I love the subtle stripe by Echo Park in the Sweet Summertime line.  It matched well with the Pink Paislee line.

More Echo Park Sweet Summertime... It's such a fun line.
I cut out the strip of circles which reminded me of the gum balls in the stamp.

More paper "yo-yo's"  I hesitated to post this one since it's a bit of disaster....
I cut out circles from the Echo Park patterned paper & covered them with Diamond Glaze.  Being the impatient gal that I am they were dry to the touch but when I turned them over to add adhesive the glazing cracked so I'll be making them again (that's why they aren't adhered down) and how in the world did I stamp the sentiment wonky when I was using the Stamp-a-ma-jig?  Leave it to me....

I know it isn't Valentines Day but these paper doilies were hanging above my desk calling to me to do something with them.  They came from the Dollar Tree so I figured I could play around with them without feeling wasteful.....  I think it would be a great anniversary card.

I just used liquid glue and adhered it to red cardstock then cut out around the edges & trimmed the extra part of doily in the card crease which I added a ribbon to disguise. 

I cut the center part of the doily out of a second heart & adhered it to white cardstock then stamped my images & sentiment and inked edges.  I attached it to the card with pop dot adhesive.

Another super simple card with a doily on it.
The more I look at it the more I think it needs a sentiment on the front doesn't it?


Thanks so much for visiting today.  Don't forget to check out the going out of business sale at Everything Scrapp'n'.  I know there is still lots of good supplies still in stock so get to shopping by clicking here.
