What's a Card Buffet? I'm glad you asked :-)
At the CARD BUFFET, you pay $5 to get in the door and then $1-2 for each card that you make (depending on the supplies used in the card - most will be $1). At each station you can make as many of each card as you like. If you don't like the card at a specific station, you don't have to make it. Once the supplies for that card are gone, I replace the project with a new one.
Each of the projects will feature one of the retiring stamp sets so you can decide what you NEED to order before it is gone forever.
This event is Open House style, so come and stamp when it is convenient for you between 10 am and 3 pm.
****Please bring your own adhesive. All other stamping supplies will be provided.****
The MYSTERY HOSTESS part of this means that I will be giving away all of the fantastic hostess benefits that Stampin Up! offers including limited edition hostess-only stamp sets and free merchandise.
Everyone who attends will have their name entered into the drawing to win some of the hostess benefits. You get additional tickets for the following:
* Bring an adult guest who has not stamped with me before (must also RSVP) - 2 tickets
* Bring a food item to donate to Hopelink - 1 ticket
* Place an order for $25+ or more -1 ticket for every $25 of merchandise that you order
Even if you can not attend, if you call or email me an order on or before June 28, you will be entered to win prizes. Everyone who places an order will get a bag of card samples.
I will have light snacks available. You are welcome to bring a lunch and use my fridge and microwave if needed.
Please RSVP by phone or email
Now for the details of the cards. I used the Polka Dots and Paisley stamp set (retiring August 10th -- boo-hoo!), Blue Bayou, Real Red and So Saffron Cardstock and ink. Blue Bayou ribbon and Antique Brass Hodgepodge Hardware.
Thanks for looking.

This card could be used for a birthday, thank you or congratulations card. The color palette is based on the Jersey Shore designer paper. It's Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi. I used my Coluzzle circle cutter to cut out the two circles.
Thanks for stopping by. Happy Stamping!

The card above uses Brocade Blue, Sage Shadow and Cameo Coral. I used the white gel pen to add the dots. The card below uses Basic Black, River Rock and Very Vanilla. I used the Zig Painty pen to add the gold dots in the center of the flowers and on the scalloped border. I hadn't used my Zig pen for a while and I'm glad I unburied it again. It stinks a bit, but it's worth it.
To make the scalloped edge, I used my slit punch. It's super easy to make a border using it.
That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by.

Now, in all honesty, I haven't worn them yet, but they're cute, right? The colors inspired this card made with Stampin' Up!'s new Fresh Cut set. The colors are Groovy Guava, Real Red, Wild Wasabi and Basic Black. I hadn't noticed the Brocade Blue in the shoes. My next attempt will incorporate that too.You never know when inspiration will strike. So, look in your closet and get inspired!
