happy stampers

I had my first Stampin' Up! card making event last night. It turned out to be a pretty small group, but I really enjoyed it! I know that each of the ladies had a lot of fun, too! They were even teaching ME stuff about Stampin' Up products! I hope to make this a monthly event...card making is just so addicting!

Thanks, ladies, for the fun time!



I thought you might like to see the cards we made.

They had their choice of which direction they wanted the card to go. This was made with Seeing Spots stamp set that is retiring from the catalog! I had to get in one last demo using this set.


This is a fun one that reminded me of summer. Wouldn't these make cute summer birthday party invitations!? I didn't come up with the design of this card, by the way. It's all over the internet!


Lastly, I just had to use the Cheep Talk set that you have seen quite a bit already on my blog. I can't get enough of these little birdies. Too cute!



And like I said before, card making is very addicting! In fact, after the ladies left, I wanted to keep creating, so I used up all the leftover supplies and made 10 more cards of the 3 designs we made.

{Not sure why the picture is sideways, but I'm too tired to figure it out.}

Off to hit some garage sales during the weekend, a hair cut and color that is very much needed, and a carnival birthday party for the cousins on Saturday. Busy weekend, but I'm sure it will be lots of fun! Ryan has to work on Sunday, so that day might be a long one.

Great work! I have a question, for the first card, how did you create the shape of the white paper? For Caleb's verse I was thinkig of having the paper cut in a shape but wasn't sure how.

I love the popsicle card. I have been wanting to try making cards, but for some reason they intimidate me. Any tips for a beginner card maker?

Those cards are so cute! I really need to learn how to do this so I can make some invites for my boys birthday parties this summer! I need a beach ball or pool themed invite and I don't know what to do!!

I love the popcicle card, that is adorable. I think that could be turned into a quick kids craft or a card for a friend made by the child, so cute!
