September Stamp Camp - A Little Bit of Everything

We had a great turnout at this last Stamp Camp. It really is true that the more the merrier! At this camp we made 3 cards, a quick Halloween treat 2 times and the cute little 3x3 card holders and purses leftover from my Open House.

The first card uses the stamp set "Friends Never Fade". We ended up stamping the main image 4 different times in 4 different colors and then cutting out different pieces to get the achieved effect. I used the new in colors- Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Island Indigo and Wisteria Wonder. The card is finished with Very Vanilla satin ribbon and 3 small pearls.

I bought the new cello bags Stampin' Up has in the New Holiday Mini catalog and made these cute Halloween treats. They are quick and easy to make. The most dificult part of the whole treat is putting the M&M's in the cello bag. I always have to fill a couple then eat a couple, so maybe that is why it took me longer!

When looking for ideas for cards, I often look at our demonstrator database, but with this card I went straight to the Stampin' Up catalog. I cased the general idea of the card on the front of this year's catalog, making due with stamps and punches I had. I really like how this card turned out. (Also I like my photography of this card. Too bad I don't really know how it turned out that way!)

Last but not least is a very cute Get Well card I cased from Carrie Gaskin from our demonstrator website. Carrie came up with the idea to make a cute little kleenex box for the front of the card! The box was a little challenging, but we had 4 fairly new stampers and all cards were gorgeous!

My next Stamp Camp is set for October 8th. We will be making more Halloween and Fall items. Come join me, there is always room for one more!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,
