Graduation Card

This is the annual Card Buffet Graduation card.  It may not be too mail friendly, but I still love it!
One stamper left of the diploma and is using for a retirement card.

Curly Cute is one stamp set that I was sorry to see retire.

Wedding Ring Card

Once a year I try to add a wedding card to by Card Buffet.  This is it for 2015.  I did not want to punch the words out, but for the life of me, I could not stamp them straight.  Plan B - stamp and punch.

Age Awareness

The last session of my Card Buffet last month was lightly attended.  The upside to that was I had the opportunity to work on cards for my personal stash.  It was fun to sit and stamp and chat with my guests.

Work of Art Thank You Card

I was a little late to the party in getting the Work of Art stamp set.  I wasn't a big fan in the beginning.  Once it grew on me and I ordered it, I quickly made three cards with it and love them all.  I'm thankful for all of the talented stampers out there that inspire me.

Lotus Blossoms

I made this card during Sale-a-Bration when the Lotus Blossom stamp set was available free.
I was going to say that the triple layer stamping is so much easier now with the photopolymer stamp sets -- then I noticed that I missed the last (darkest) color.  Oh well - at least it was fun and is still a pretty card.  haha

Flower Shop and Petite Petals Layered Flowers

This is my my typical style, but I try to have a variety of cards available at Card Buffets.  I do like this one and it was very popular.  The brads were just random brads that I had around.  Thank goodness I had a lot since 135 were needed.

The card I CASEd only had white card stock.  I added the crumb cake layers.

Using a foot from the owl builder punch with the small oval punch to make balloons is one of my favorite punch "tricks".
