May Guy Themed Card Buffet Invitation

Would you like to join us to create a few hand stamped greeting cards? Wow your friends with your new found talent! Could be your new experience for the day. It could also be an experience you share with someone that may think they are not creative. The only requirement to asking your friends to attend with you is that you like to spend time with them:) I’ll teach them how to stamp in just a few minutes.

Projects will feature spring Occasions 2019 with current annual catalog goodies rounding out the designs. All projects will be guy themed suitable to share with the men in your life.

Card Buffet details:

Create 10 hand stamped greeting cards with all supplies cut according to the samples provided and tucked into the envelopes. You pick which designs to create and how many of each design from a buffet of options. Create 10 cards with envelopes for $20. Let me do the prep work for you! Add additional kits for $1 per kit.

I can provide adhesives for $5 extra or bring your own. I’ll have new packages of glue dots, dimensionals, liquid glue, tear n tape and SNAIL for cash and carry sale as well.

You are welcome to bring friends! A new friend that has not stamped with me before earns you an extra card kit. If you are a member of my Super Awesome Stampers team, you get an extra kit too.

Place an order during the event or using the host code listed found on the right side of this blog and receive an extra kit.

Session dates are Sunday, May 19th, 1-3pm, Tuesday, May 21st, 9:30-11:30am and Wednesday, May 22nd, 8:30-10:30am. I can also schedule a private session for your group. Just ask!

Please bring a friend or 2 or 3! I’ll accommodate as many stampers as I can. I reserve the right to cancel the session if less than 3 stampers RSVP.

RSVP by May 16th to reserve your spot and so I can have enough time to prepare kits for you. RSVP by clicking “Contact” above and let me know which day you prefer and how many in your party.

Hope to stamp with you then!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop Poppin’ Birthday


Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! We are fans of this monthly crafting kit. Follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as designed, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild.

On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas on how to use the March Paper Pumpkin kit, Sentimental Rose, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from Janey Backer’s blog. She had a great project!

What to do with the stamps after the original kits contents are depleted? This month, I carefully opened the box and slipped only the stamp set out. I did not want my designing mojo to be influenced by the suggested designs included with the kit.

I started plucking pieces from my sniblets pile, added the Layered Leaves embossing folder to the crumb cake card base, daubed on Wink of Stella and crumpled up the fussy cut rose because it was just too flat looking (and that is just the kind of day I am having, a good busy but I am not going to get it all done before the clock strikes midnight!).

Uncrumple the rose and voila!, came up with this idea…
