I miss my stamping friends!! Between the Covid restrictions and building a new house, I’ve been trying to do more events online.
One of the things we’ve been doing is Stampin’ Surprise. I post a list of the materials needed (with a picture of what I’ll be using), and everyone who participates prepares their own packet. Then, we get together on Zoom and I TELL them how to make their card. They don’t get to see a sample or picture of the card they’re making. They make their card just following the verbal instructions I give them. Some of my friends are really visual (as am I), so it’s outside the box for them. But, I’ve had a good time with it, and they seem to enjoy it, too.
This was one of our Stampin’ Surprise cards. I used the beautiful Gilded Autumn Suite, which is my current favorite. We followed a sketch design from Mojo Monday.
I just love the little leaf and acorn stamps and punches. They are quick and easy, and add such a pretty embellishment.
They also are the perfect addition to the inside of the card.
I hope you like this suite as much as I do! In my next post, I’ll show you all the beautiful cards made by my stampin’ friends!
