Card Buffet

A new class is on the horizon! I read several threads on Splitcoast Stampers (the best resource for stamping & building your SU! business, IMO) about offering card buffet classes. These classes are pretty straight forward & simple: people reserve a spot, then come and can make as many or as few cards as they want, and pay a la carte. I thought it was a great idea, so I'm going to give a whirl. I plan to hold my Card Buffet class on Aug. 30. I have 5 different cards people can choose from. I hope I get a good turnout! :)

Like many cards I made, I took inspiration from others. Let me give credit where credit is due now!

  • Upsy Daisy card is inspired by this card I found on
  • Birthday Buffet is the layout from Clean and Simple Stamping FTL51.
  • Flower Buffet is another card inspired by Splitcoast Stampers. The original is here.
  • The Medallion card is a near-exact copy of Robin's card at Trinity Designs.
I hope this class goes well. I'd love to make it a bi-monthly or quarterly event! Hope to see you there. :)
