Confession time! A month or so (could be longer..) I held a class called "Card Buffet." It was a class where I had about 20 cards on display and my customers could make any 5 cards from the designs I had displayed. I loved this class but at the end of it I noticed I had a
few LOT of kits left over. The cardstock is already cut and ready to go, I just needed to get busy and stamp. For the most part this is not an issue because I just make up the rest of the cards and it leaves me a ton of cards that I can send out myself (which by the way I am SOOOOO behind on!!!) Anyways, one of the cards I had leftovers for was an Easter card. Remember this one?
Since Easter has passed I didn't want to make more Easter cards so I took the pre-cut cardstock and challenged myself to come up with a different card. Here is what I came up with.
I chose the exact same design, just a different stamp set. I love the stamp set Send Me Soaring. It's in the Occasions Mini Catalog and it's one of those stamps that you can color, paper piece, or just do solid stamping with. I love the sentiments too because it covers many things. The clouds are cute as can be!!! I love the crisp lines that this set has. Check it out:
You can even get this set in Digital Form. I REALLY love that.
Overall, my point is this… Make the most of your supplies. Do you have pre cut cardstock, DSP or pre cut ribbon laying around? Challenge yourself and make a card. For me the biggest challenge is putting a stamp on the envelope and SENDING the card. Anyone up for the challenge? I would love to see your creations. I am going to challenge myself to send out 5 cards tomorrow. WOW!!
You can find all of these great supplies in my Online Store. Don't forget to check out the Retired Lists. Items are going FAST! If you love 12 x 12 Textured Cardstock, stock up. If you love Craft ink (LOVE, LOVE it!!) stock up. Craft ink is being discontinued expect for Black and White.
Have a GREAT FRIDAY!
P.S. I have two kids that are OVER the TOP excited as we leave in a few days for Disney. Alexis can barely contain herself. Seriously she cannot focus on anything! She is SO excited to see a friend that she has been pen paling with and just cannot believe she is going to Disney. We are thankful for Stampin' Up!, my customers and downline who make things like this trip even possible. I am looking forward to spending time with my family watching my kids relax and have fun. They deserve it.
I will be posting while I am away. In fact…. I've already posted ahead of schedule. I know you just FAINTED! I'm NEVER this organized. I plan to share our trip with you if you don't mind. You know it's always an adventure when I travel.
Thank you for always supporting me, my business and my family. Sending 1000 hugs and kisses to YOU my awesome readers!
