Happy Birthday to Sami Stamps DT Member: Bettina Leikvoll!


Bettina has been a Design Team Member here at Sami Stamps since September 2013.

Bettina started crafting late 2009 due to making baptism invitations and it was in 2010 that she really got hooked. Bettina thoroughly enjoys making cards, both folded and with lots of embellishments and she also loves making boxes and other little projects. Her favorite tools to use when it comes to crafting are dies and promarkers and she is hooked on embellishments as well. Other things Bettina enjoys doing is gardening, playing piano, singing, and playing with her kids.

I love Bettina's style! I am particularly drawn to the way Bettina colors her images. As an artist the thing that always draws my eye first when looking at a craft project is the way the image was colored. The coloring of an image can make or break a card for me. And I just love how Bettina colors images! Her blending and shading always impresses me.

Bettina cards are usually busy and uses a lot of embellishments. She has a real talent for arranging and designing cards where her embellishments flow and work together and never look cluttered. Bettina has been a real asset to the Sami Stamps Design Team and I sure appreciate her talent!

Here are a few of my favorite past projects from Bettina.
