Z-Fold Mystery Card

I've really missed stamping with friends so I took a huge leap - for me - and hosted a Mystery Card meeting on Zoom with 5 supportive stamping friends!

It took about 15 minutes to get everyone in the Zoom Room and then the camera that was showing my hands conked out. 😕 But other than that, we had a great time and everyone completed their cards! Woo Hoo!!!!

For those of you who've not heard of mystery cards, here's how it works. After deciding on a card, and for this session I cased a fabulous Z-fold card from Susan Campfield, I sent a list of needed materials to each participant. I provided the cardstock/dsp sizes for them to cut, the size of stamp they'd need and any tools, adhesives and embellishments required to complete the project.

Once we were all in one place, we worked our way through 5 clues to complete the project. The most fun was seeing 6 different cards using the same layout. We had a great time!

                               

I've got some work to do on finessing to do on my technical skills, but I'll definitely do it again. Next time, I'll ask everyone to send a photo of their card so you can see the variety.
Let me know if you'd be interested in a Mystery Stamping session. I'd love to have you join the fun!

Sending Spring Cheer

Greetings,

I'm working from home and have become calendar challenged. What day is it?? Yeesh!

I thought I'd share a win-win project with you today. I pulled out another pack of retired dsp and went to work creating. Here is a sample of some of the cards I made.



I ended up making 40 cards! I placed 4 cards and envelopes in an Acetate Card Box along with a note and left them in neighbor's mailboxes. I had fun making the cards. The neighbors enjoyed receiving them and I'm sure the recipients enjoyed reading the notes. I guess that made it a win-win-win!

Share your talents and help spread some cheer!

Happy stamping!
