Stamp Camp

Hi everyone...I can't believe how long it has been since I posted anything fun or creative on here...

One of my friends from work wanted to have a camp last week that incorporated the mini book and some fun cards so these are the cards I came up with.

For the first card I wanted to use some of the new colors and stamp sets we were able to pre-order, so I went with this soft design. I so love how this card came out, we did the cracked glass technique on the main image. This card is a little vintage looking, a little romantic looking and a lot of ME!! I'm so loving these new in colors...every year I fall in love with the colors then get distressed that nothing will be able to replace those colors...first it was Marigold Morning / True Thyme, then it was Purely Pomegranate / Wild Wasabi and now it is Riding Hood Red / Pink Pirouette...

For the second card we did a faux metal technique that is ultra easy to do and gives such a nice "WOW" factor...This is so out of my normal zone, but it was so fun to do!! I asked Kat to help me pick out some colors that would go with my silver medallion, so we came up with Taken with Teal, Tempting Turquoise, Certain Celery and Barely Banana. I really like how the colors we picked work together with this card, and the small details like the paper piercing really help balance the card and add a little more interest to it. Of course I had to pull one of my favorite sets into this card, True Friend, I felt the large flower would make such a striking center piece and in real life it is just lovely!!

For the final card I wanted something quick and easy since the other projects were a little time consuming...so I went with the creamcicle card...I know it is far from new, but it was new to me and so quick and easy to do...it is hard to see in this picture but there is a white layer in the card that is punched a little shorter than the cover, so all the layers show and look like a bite has been taken from the frozen treat...these would be so easy to do with scratch-n-sniff...
I hope to have some more fun projects to share with you soon!!
