Camp Cards

Hi there everyone!! I have some new cards to share with you today. I had a stamp camp a couple of weeks ago and just realized that I forgot to share the cards with everyone...

This first card is another gift card holder, I'm so loving making these things!! Be on the lookout for my first tutorial...I will show everyone how to make this cute little holder...

I finally used my level 2 set Deer Friends. Yeah!! Another new set finally inked up!!! The snowflakes come from the set Short & Sweet and the Merry Christmas is from Holiday's & Wishes. The base of the card is Glorious Green and it is accented with Ballet Blue, Riding Hood Red and Whisper White. I'm so loving this DS paper Frosty Day. I thought those little trees would match the theme perfectly and a little Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon finishes it off nicely!

The next card is one I cased from SandiMac - you can see her card here. I just loved the color combination she used and the simple yet elegant layout she had for the Holy Triptych set - which is beautiful but a little intimidating to me. I think the ladies had a really good time with this card. I opted to add a few more swirls to the bottom instead of putting a sentiment. I used Whisper White, Brushed Gold and Shimmery White Cardstock and Encore Gold ink. Very simple to put together and very elegant to give.

The next card is one that seemed to be a fan favorite - not just at the camp but to most people I have shown these cards to...it is another case card, this time from BarbaraJackson - here is her card. I did change a few things from the original. I didn't watercolor the image and instead of using Square Fire Brads I used half-back pearls from the Pretties Kit to accent the flower. I love how simple and uncluttered this card it. I used Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White cardstock and Always Artichoke ink for the tree.

The final Christmas card we made used the Snow Swirled stamp set and we got to play with the ink resist emossing technique which looks just awesome for this tree...I am such a fan on blue and silver for Christmas, to me it looks very elegant. We also got to play with the silver elastic cord, which is just too fun!! I used Ballet Blue as my base and accented with Night of Navy and Whisper White. All ink is Ballet Blue. I used a sponge dauber to color the tree. I have been asked to come to my DD art class and help the kids make Christmas cards for their families and this is the card my DD picked, so hopefully all the 8th graders will have a blast playing with this technique as well.
