Saturday afternoon I hosted a little Stampin' Up! shindig and thought I would share the make and takes with you too.
One of my favorite creative outlets is making cards, usually in an assembly line way in order to make 12-16 of one style. That way I have a nice supply of ready to use cards and even some to share if needed. Most of these cards are very simple, requiring only a few steps. (Don't get me wrong, I adore layered, detailed and embellished cards too, I just don't always have the time to make them.)
The first few cards were made using the Pocket Silhouettes set.
These cards were made using the Love You Much set:
Hosting this little card party gave me the perfect reason to play with The Big Shot. Yippee! It not only die cuts, it dry embosses too (it might even bake you a cake).This opens up a whole new crafting world to me that honestly seems a bit overwhelming since I'm still rather new to die cuts, etc.
The last card was made with one of the Sale-A-Bration sets, Polka Dot Punches:
There you have it, a handful of handmade cards in a short amount of time. Add a few girlfriends, some snacks and you have the makings of a highly enjoyable afternoon!
So, what did the kids do during all this craftiness? Video games, swinging, toys, Popsicles, and don't forget the trampoline...
