And even more Buffet cards... (the last installment!)

Tired of the Buffet cards yet?  I hope not!  I have a few more to go....

I've been anxious to use the Hello Doily stamp on a card for awhile now.  It embosses really beautifully.  I decided to do it in white on Melon Mambo for a good contrast.  Very simple card that could be used for a bunch of different occasions. 

Products used (everything is from SU! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp sets: Hello Doily, Fresh Vintage (a Sale-A-Bration set); Cardstock: Melon Mambo, Whisper White;
Inks: Versamark, Melon MamboPunches: Postage Stamp, Scallop Trim;  
  Ribbon: Whisper White 3/8" Taffeta, Melon Mambo Pom Pom Trim (retired); 
Other: White Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Pop Dots (American Crafts), Scotch ATG.

Next, I offered a Valentine's Day Card with a Gift Card Holder.  I've made a few cards with the gift card holder and really like them. 

Products used (everything is from SU! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp sets: P.S. I Love You; Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red;
Patterned Paper:  Love Letters DSP (retired); 
Inks: Basic Black, Riding Hood RedPunches: Lace Ribbon Border, Word Window;  
Sizzix:  Hearts Collection Framelits;
  Ribbon: Riding Hood Red 3/8" Taffeta (retired); 
Other: Pop Dots (American Crafts), Scotch ATG.

Lastly (yea... this is the end of the card buffet cards... finally!), I saw this card that Leigha Rock made (which she adapted from a card made by Sue Bayliss; but I can't find it on her blog to link it).  I offered this card in either blue or pink for the buffet.  To color the images, I used SU! Markers for some and a Blender Pen & Ink Pads for others.  I ♥ my Blender Pen!!

Products used (everything is from SU! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp sets: Baby Bundle; Cardstock: Pretty In Pink, Baja Breeze, Regal Rose, Whisper White;
Inks: Pretty In Pink, Baja Breeze, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Real Red, Certainly Celery, Melon Mambo, Wisteria Wonder;

So that wraps up the February Card Buffet samples.  I'm looking forward to the March class.  I've started narrowing down what cards will carry over and what new ones will be added.  I have a feeling I'll have more than 10 cards as options!  :0)

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. all the buffet cards were beautiful, love the gift card card. care to share the instructions? :)

    looking forward to the next installment

    1. yes, yes, I definitely will! :0) I started to include them in this post but it got really confusing to write out in a way that would make sense. The logical words were just not flowing & I decided I'm going to have to accompany it with pictures.. I'll put some pictures together & post the detailed instructions for you. But, I probably won't get to it until early next week. It's really very easy to do! Glad you like it, Carrie!

  2. I can't believe I haven't visited your blog before. I absolutely LOVE your projects. They are simple enough for even newer stampers, but stunning! :) Thanks for Sharing!!
