three times the fun!

My good friend, Kim, hosted a 3/$5 card making workshop at her house on Thursday. I wanted to hold an event in February, but since our house is currently in the "packing" stages, she stepped up and said she'd be happy to have it at her house! We had an AWESOME turn out of 13 stampers with quite a few new ladies to Stampin' Up! It was super fun and Kim provided some really yummy appetizers. Thanks, Kim, for opening your home to everyone!

The first two cards, my upline, Andrea shared with me and I just had to make them and let others create them, too! The first one would be the perfect masculine card (I don't make a lot of those) and the next one is a perfect card for a kid's birthday.

This card uses the Four Square stamp set and Sweet Pea designer series paper from the Occasions Mini Catalog. It also uses the coordinating scalloped square punch, Taken with Teal CS, So Saffron CS, and Pumpkin Pie 1/4" grosgrain ribbon.

This card uses Bugs & Kisses...the cutest little stamp set! It is actually Kim's, but I borrowed it to use for her workshop. This card uses colors from the Bold Brights family, including Only Orange, Green Galore, and Tempting Turquoise.

This last card uses the Simply Said stamp set and I incorporated the Sale-A-Bration edge punch, Chocolate Chip satin ribbon from the Occasions Mini and Certainly Celery designer series paper. We used Dazzling Diamonds glitter for the flowered image and you should see it sparkle in real life!
I'm happy to answer any questions about any cards that I post...feel free to leave a comment if you have one!
