If you have arrived from the talented Nancy Brown’s blog you are right on track. 

This month I wanted to share a set of cards I created using the Pathfinding Workshop on the Go Cardmaking kit. 

Our Cardmaking Workshop kits from Close To My Heart are BEAUTIFUL as well as loaded with techniques, tips & a way to create in a very short time!!

I host cardmaking workshops, and we always create the 1st set of cards like CTMH has designed them.

However, my gals really enjoy when I “re-create” the cards and use another current stamp set that we carry. 

Each card kit creates 15 cards - that’s 5 cards of each of the 3 designs. 
Here are the original card designs by CTMH… 
 02 – Sarita L3

Now, here are the “re-created” cards by me J”

I used the NEW A Budding Friendship stamp set…
and on the re-created cards…I used the exact paper pieces on each card. 

Here they are all together so that you can see the differences…

To create the set of 3 floral cards, you will need to stamp these images below. 

Please keep in mind - the floral stamped images shown below,  will create one of EACH flower card design. 

If you want to create all 15 cards using the Budding Friendship stamp set, you would need to stamp all of these images 5 more times.

  1. Thank you for sharing your awesome recreations to the WOTG kit - I love the beautiful results of just switching out the stamp set.

  2. So...would it be horrible of me to say I like your cards better than the WOTG ones. :) Thanks for the inspiration and for adding a stamp on my wishlist (Budding Friendship)!

  3. WOW these cards are adorable! And you are one creative consultant!


Thanks for taking time to make a comment!
Blessings to you for a BEAUTIFUL day! :)
