About The Episode

Episode archive posted on November 30, 2020

Get a couple of crafters together and some ideas, and BAM! FUNN happens. Such was the case Friday night at the Craft Roulette wheel with Karen Boyce from Toronto, Canada. What a lovely, smart lady she is, and when it comes to Copic coloring – shut the door! The best place to keep an eye on this excellent card maker is on her Instagram account called Cards Inks and Stamps (or CSI, for short – see how clever she is). Not only does she have some really pretty cards, she has some great clips in her Instastories, too. Congratulations, too, because yesterday she was named as one of the new design team members for Sandy Boone’s Three Room Studio Stamp companyYou’ll sure want to follow her adventure with them. I think the only thing that would have made the evening more FUNN for us would have been to have Prince’s Purple Rain playing in the background. Thank you, Karen!

The parameters

The parameters were great this week and the wheel welcomed Karen with her favorite type of stamps – florals! Can you believe it? Watching Karen’s reaction to the parameters have inspired us at Craft Roulette, too. Be sure to watch this Friday’s show for a new tweak.
The colors were the curve ball this week, but it was more a seasonal rub than an actual color rub. Maybe Pepto Bismol pink could be a seasonal color. But, not all cards were Barbie/Pepto bismol pink. Some were lovely pastels and almost lavender.  All were unique and uniquely inspiring. Thank you, contributors, for taking your ideas and adding them to a card for us! YEAH!

But, not all cards were Barbie/Pepto bismol pink. Some were lovely pastels and almost lavender.  All were unique and uniquely inspiring.

Decided to try a new die for the flower, since I couldn't bring myself to use black/pink on leaves and green wasn't allowed. LOL!
