NW Women’s Show Day 1– Few Supplies, Great Cards!


Yesterday was the first day of the Northwest Women’s Show and the first of 3 days of presentations I’ll be running on the Home Style stage!  It was a lot of fun and I’m excited to go back and share different projects for the next couple days.  But I thought I would share the first set of projects we did on Friday:

Fri samples copy

The whole idea of the presentation on Friday was that you didn’t need a lot of supplies or a lot of time to make some great cards!  I sketched four layouts and my upline, Kathy Thisted designed these fun cards using the sketches and a limited the amount of supplies:

  • 5 colors of ink:  Wisteria Wonder, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, and Basic Grey
  • 4 colors of cardstock: Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo
  • 1 pack of patterned paper: Flirtatious designer paper
  • 2 stamp sets: Mixed Bunch, Sincere Salutations
  • 1 punch: Blossom punch

The top two cards in the photo above were all about using a few colors of ink and a little bit of cardstock, you could make some pretty cards that would be unique each time you made them.  Then the second two cards showed how you only needed one package of designer paper and one color of cardstock and a punch and you could make even a variety of more fun cards!  My presentation lasted 30 minutes and I fully demonstrated all 4 of these cards… so a cute card doesn’t need to take very long to make!

Now, we picked these colors because they said “Spring!” but if you were starting from scratch, you could swap out some colors and use Stampin’ Spot mini ink pads and be up and running with only buying a few things:
