2015-02-27; February Stamp Camp; 3 lemons! and review


Today is the last share from the February Stamp Camp. This is another of my favorite projects. I did change it up a bit from the original design.

I stamped extra lemons and then carefully cut out the leaves that fell over the edge of the white mat. I added each of the leaves on 3-d mounting tape so that a full leaf would hang over the border. I know you can do this by using the die and carefully trimming before cutting…but in this case it wouldn’t have worked. There were other ladies waiting for the die so I took the other route instead.

I took one of the extra lemons that I had stamped and added it with 3-d mounting tape. I made sure to mold it a bit and added various layers to give it different heights. When I got home I added a tiny narrow ribbon and lots of crystal effects over each of the lemons for some textured shine.

We colored the leaves and lemons with the new blendabilities pens.

My thanks to Sally Lunde for another great stamp camp!

2015-02-26; February Stamp Camp; Felt Accordion card


Today I’m sharing the 2nd project using felt letters. It looks quite unassuming right now; but wait till it’s opened up!

Who woulda thunk? All tied up was a multi accordion fold card. Each of the panels was stamped with geometric shapes and then the felt alpha letter added on top.

Thanks for stopping by today.

2015-02-25; February Stamp Camp ; Felt Thanks


We made two cards using sticky back felt letters. This is the first, the negative portion of the letters. We backed the letters with stamping and mounted it on the card. I also stamped the base card with matching colors.

Had I thought ahead, I could have just stamped the base card and mounted the sticky back letters right to it and saved a step. It would look really nice just backed with some DP and mounted on a white card base.

2015-02-24; February Stamp Camp #3; Thinking of you


This is one of my favorite projects from the February Stamp Camp. I guess it’s the peachy color that appeals to me. We fussy cut the flower and hand cut the banners.

We colored the pearl using an alcohol marker, the SU brand called blendabilities.

2015-02-23; February Stamp Camp; Project #2; pink tulips


This is the 2nd project from the February Stamp camp. I didn’t know how to line the images up properly for a polished look, but they are pretty just the same. I do have tulips somewhere in my collection for a somewhat similar look.

When I got home I added just a bit of glitter. It sure helps the eye to overlook the petals hanging in mid air ;-)

I love the striking color of deep pink and black.

2015-02-22; 2nd Owl Theme card…Flip Flop style


Who would have thunk I’d need two owl cards in the same month? So with the same owl stamp I went to work on my second swap card. I used the Sizzix original flip flop die for this design then went looking in my DSP for something with leaves…I found this wild print and just went with it.

I made this owl the same way as yesterday’s design, by “thumping.” I love the texture it adds to it. I popped up the beak the same way as yesterday’s design as well. The new change was the real feather I added to the owl’s tummy. I stamped a 2nd owl, cut out the tummy and added a pheasant feather to it. Using 3-d mounting tape I added it to the owl. Fun huh?

2015-02-16 (3)

I took a shot of how the card looks open for you. I added additional leaves and again generated the text on my computer. The inside owl and verse is by Penny Black. I had to do surgery on the sentiment as originally it was for Halloween.

And one last look at the card before you head out about your day…I added crystal effects to the sentiment, owl eyes and beak.

Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to let me know if you gave a hoot about seeing owl cards.

2015-02-22; February Stamp Camp; # 1; happy hello


This past week I went and enjoyed the February stamp camp. This is one of five projects that we made that evening. It’s so much fun playing with the new products!

We sponged color onto the background that had starts printed on it for a resist look. The 3 ribbons match the colors exactly.

2015-02-19 (2)

The happy and hello were cut out of various matching colors of card stock, stacked and glued in place. When I got home I added a nice coat of glaze over the top for some shine.
