Card Buffet Class - Tues & Wed, Aug 28 & 29

Here are a few of the cards you can choose to make at the Card Buffet Class this week on Tuesday or Wednesday, August 28 and 29!  I think I have an additional 15 cards to choose from as well!  Also, if the sentiments on these (or any of the Buffet Cards) are not what you're looking for, we can always find a sentiment that will work for you - just let me know at class!

I'm kind of in the mood for fall, so this card makes me happy!!  I found the idea while browsing Stampin' Connection - thanks Connie Tumm!!  It features a Soft Suede card base and the new Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper.  We also had fun playing with the new Scentsational Seasons Stamp set and coordinating Holiday Collection Framelit dies - they are perfect for stamping that hot chocolate mug and die-cutting it with precision!!  The "Thank You" sentiment is from the Blooming with Kindness stamp set, a beautiful stamp set from the Annual Catalog.

This next card (that I made a similar version of at Ronda Wade's Baggie Book event earlier this summer) also features the Comfort Cafe Designer Series paper.  We also used the new Delicate Designs Impression Folder along the bottom of the card - I think it's the perfect compliment to the paper above!  The sentiment and pretty flowers (stamped in the new In Color, Midnight Muse) are from the Embellished Events stamp set, another fun set in the Annual Catalog.  The final touches are the Midnight Muse Dahlia and the pearls - what a pretty card!

This next card is a CASE from Ronda Wade - this was her convention swap this year.  I didn't have the DSP color she used, so I changed it up a bit.  I love how she used the Orament Punch to make the strawberry, and then the leaves on the strawberry are from the Bird Punch.  We also used the Chevron Embossing Folder on the white card stock and tied a simple Wild Wasabi 1/4" Stitched Grograin "cheater" bow to add a little accent.  The sentiment "Sending Many Thanks" is from the Petite Pairs Stamp Set.  It's such a sweet card - send it to someone sweet!!

Of course, I had to do a Mary Fish card this month - the hardest part is choosing which one to do!!  I loved this card the minute I saw it.  Plus...  I love that, with the purchase of this Stamp Set, Moving Forward, Stampin' Up will donate $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  And... that tricycle is too fun - I wish I could ride it!!  This card also features the Chevron Embossing Folder and the Scallop Square Duo Bigz Die, as well as the Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper.

Here is one more card using the Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper - like I said, I was in the mood for fall and this paper just says "fall" to me :).  I found this card on Stampin Connection as well - thanks to Jen Mitchell for her simple, but beautiful, card!  We used the new Elegant Butterfly punch and then layered it on the largest die cut from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die.  A few strips of coordinating colors - Pool Party, Cajun Craze and Summer Starfruit - and this card is about complete!!  The final touch - the sentiment - Thinking of You.... is from the Thoughts & Prayers Stamp set.
