At my workshop classes, we always do something a bit different. 

In this case, I blocked up a few more stamp sets that my attendees could use in their cardmaking to create a VARIETY of different cards! 

Here are the additional stamp sets we used to create our cards.  Keep in mind…the card design stayed the same, but we used different stamps to complete the cards.

So, let’s take a look at CARD #1Lollydoodle_Card WOTG_card 1_DSC_1342
I love how EASY it is to change the look of a card….just by adding different stamped images!! J Do you see the tiny changes I created in each card? 

Here’s a close up of the butterfly card…

There is not too much difference in the stamping on this card.  However,  I LOVE the variety of sentiments in the Banner Wishes stamp set….a GREAT set to use for ALL occasions!!J

Card 3….this was a FAVORITE of my workshop attendees. J

The subtle softness of these birds, from the Fabulous You stamp set, stamped in Slate ink made a total different, but BEAUTIFUL card! 

I hope you enjoyed seeing the VARIETY of ways YOU can use any CTMH cardmaking Workshop kit!!  I encourage you to “think outside the box”, as we like to say in the crafting world, and EXPLORE the many different options you have - even when you have a kit to complete!  

Now it’s time to Hop on over to  Janice Centritto’s blog to check out what beautiful, crafty item she has to share with us! J
