I had lots of materials prepared for my World Cardmaking Day event on Saturday, but just a few were organised into specific project ideas. Even those wound up being inspiration for my attendees to make their own!
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, Stampin' Up! Australia donated a large amount of retired product for our project, so most of what you'll see is not available to purchase anymore.
For this pair of birthday cards I cut an entire package of 6x6 Picture Perfect Party DSP into 2 pieces - one that fit an entire card front, and one that, when matted, fit the vertical half of a card front. My expectation was that the crafters would choose from the large variety of birthday sentiments and punches & dies to make variations of my samples.
At the other end of the table I placed the Dino Days stamp set and Dinoroar DSP with coordinating card bases, and pre-cut stamping and matting layers. I included a few sample projects to get them started.
While some people stuck pretty closely to my examples, others really got into the fun and went their own way, even mixing-and-matching between the suites since they had similar colour schemes. Here are a few from this table (card front on L, inside on R if decorated):
And last but not least, here is Mary with the first greeting card she's ever made!
