Afternoon card making with a small group of teenage girls..

Spending a Saturday afternoon early evening with 5 teenage girls making cards was a fun filled time..I designed 4 cards for them to make, but it was only a guide line they made the cards their own..I should have took photos of their end products. Next time I will. Theses are the 4 cards I designed for them.
Mother's Day

Female Birthday

Father's Day

Child Birthday

Handbag card

This card I made using the Big Shot. It looks like a little handbag and when you open it you can have money or store gift card inside. 

Child Birthday Card

Had a bit of fun with the Make A Monster Stampin up set. So many different types of Monsters to make. So much fun, I had a group of teenagers over for an afernoon of card making and they really enjoyed making the monster card.

Mothers Day card

The local high school had a Mother's Day stall and I made a few cards which I donated I used the Big shot to emboss the card stock and added a few beads.
This one is a favourite of mine I have also made this one as a birthday card before.

Well the local high school was after donations for the Easter raffle so I decided to make a couple of cards to add to the prizes. they did not end up with the raffle as some teachers purchased them instead.

  • I used the Stampin up Easter Blossoms stamp set, 
  • the Sweet Treat Cups, 
  • White, Certainly Celery and Daffodil Delight card stock. 
  • Sunny Garden Designer Paper
  • Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder
  • Orange Ribbon
  • M & M's

Another never ending card

After making the wedding card I had a 13th birthday card to make so decided to make a more interesting card for a 13 year old...was another success.

  • I used Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, White and Black Card Stock
  • Bring On the Cake Stampin Set
  • Island Oasis Designer Paper
  • A Butterfly corner punch and a pig punch
I had a wedding to go to and decided to make a card with a difference. This card is called a never ending card and it's like having 4 cards in 1. I got the idea from my up line Michelle who made one for me for my birthday. the card was a big success with the Bride and other wedding guests.
