April Card Buffet was So Much Fun!

My April Card Buffet was so much fun Tuesday with 7 people attending, starting at 8:30 a.m. and ending at 4:30 p.m.  Normally there are two Buffet sessions, one at 10:00 a.m. and the second at 2:00 p.m.  For April, one of the gals had a commitment at noon making the normal morning session sort of impossible.  So she asked if she could come at 8:30 a.m.  Why not!  I’m there.  I’m up and at it by 7:00, all of the card stock was cut and ready to go, along with each basket totally ready for participants.  So she arrived promptly at 8:15!

You can view the assortment of April’s Card Buffet selections by clicking on the green box, above right or right here.  I have two PDFs available with complete supply and cutting instructions plus pre-cut cardstock if you’re interested.  They can both be found by clicking that card buffet link and scrolling down below the eight card samples.  What I’m sharing today are some of the variations the gals created.

First off though, I made some little gifts for this month’s stampers for easy identification of their personal precut card stock cello bag:

Custom Tee Bundle (144724): T-shirt Builder Framelits Dies and Custom Tee stamp set.*

(*I just check and WOW, each of the items above are on sale as retiring products.  You’ll save more purchasing them individually rather that at the 10% saving of a bundle.)


These morning gals are the “S, R, E and K” of the tags:  Sue, Rose, Elizabeth and Karen.


I love it when stampers are comfortable enough to step out on their own and modify a basic card that’s in the group of Buffet cards.

Original card:

Definitely Dahlia Thank You Card, Blythe's April Card Buffet
Definitely Dahlia, 138746-wood mount, 139911-clear mount

And a few variations with the simple addition of a few 2016-2018 Enamel Shapes.

The card above is before being added to the card front layer.  I love the addition of the hearts on either side of the greeting.
Definitely Dahlia, available in wood (138746) or clear mount (139911)

The card above is before being added to the card front layer.  I love the addition of the hearts on either side of the greeting.

Definitely Dahlia thank you card
Definitely Dahlia background stamp, 138746 (wood) OR 139911 (clear mount)

On this card I like the way Sue inserted the greeting on the right side of the card with the addition of the squiggles on either side.

Definitely Dahlia Background Stamp thank you cards
Definitely Dahlia Background Stamp 138746-wood mount OR 139911 clear mount

Obviously, these cards have the addition of three enamel shapes elements.

As I said earlier, it tickles me when class attendees are comfortable enough to stray away from the original layout and ‘do their own thing’.
