Stamp-A-Stack Cards Preview

Warning: If you are attending my July 9 Stamp-A-Stack and want to be surprised with the cards you'll be making, don't look any further!

I usually have 3-4 Stamp-A-Stacks/year that allow each participant to make 30 cards, using 5 designs and duplicating each 6 times. I enjoy preparing the sample cards and supplies, plus sharing any new ideas or tips that I've recently learned. The expertise of stampers always varies from beginner to advanced, so I try to have a variety of cards that will please everyone. I've found that most people want all-occasion cards to be used for male and female birthdays, get well, thank yous, sympathy and thinking of you. So, let me show you 2 of the sample cards that they will be making this weekend.

The first card can be used for a male' s birthday. I used the SU! Word Search background inked in Always Artichoke and circled the words "Happy Birthday" with a Certainly Celery Marker. I added coordinating stripe paper (found at my local scrapbook store), twill tape and a round clip from the SU! Hodgepodge Hardware Set.

This card is intended for a female's birthday. I embossed the Regal Rose cardstock with my Cuddlebug embossing folder. The patterned paper, ribbon and oval punch are from SU! Using the SU! Amazing to Zany set for my sentiment, I stamped it in Tempting Turquoise ink. The oval punch fit around the sentiment perfectly.
Thanks for visiting! More samples to come.
