I’m setting aside these early designs and will use them up shortly for some stamping friends this Christmas season.

Still more stamp camp cards to come so stop back!

2016-10-20; Teddy Bears Rock – Sketch Challenge


This morning before I left for work I put together this fun card for a sketch challenge. I used Sketch #4 from CardzTV and added pumpkins from Lawn Fawn to have the Teddy Bear from the Teddy Bears Rock CardzTV set be in a pumpkin patch.

The sentiment is a dollar stamp by Studio G. I wish the big box stores would bring back these fun seasonal sentiments.

The pumpkins were colored with chalk and highlighted with a jelly roll glitter pen.

Today I am sharing the 2nd card that we made at the October stamp camp. I love fall colors and that origami folded medallion really is the star of the card.

2016-10-19; Sketch Challenge & Teddy Bears Rock


Tonight I have a quick card that I did based on a card challenge with a theme. Make a card using a specific sketch for fall. I happen to think that the oranges and browns are wonderful indicators of fall, not to mention that hot drink that Ms. Teddy is holding. I used the StampTV acrylic set “Teddy Bears Rock” and Sketch #3.

2016-10-19; October stamp camp; project #1


This past weekend my friend Jan invited me to go to a stamp camp. Here you can see how big the room was. I think there were about 50 ladies. Many of the chairs are empty when I took the photo as we were taking a break. This is also where the rummage sale was held in an adjacent room.

This is the first project that we made; I believe it is called a box Z card. I’ve made these before and they are fun!

Here I have the card wide open so you can see how it looks spread out.

2016-10-18; Rummage sale picture & using some of the new dies


After yesterday’s share of one of my rummage sale finds I received a request to show a quick photo of my haul. So here you go…

2016-10-15  Stamp Camp (3)

In today’s share I used 3 different sets (1 from each set of dies) to create this design and also use up some of the extra leaves I embossed last week.

2016-10-17 (2)

The leaves were embossed in gold, colored with chalk and then embossed again over-all with clear embossing powder.

2016-10-17 (3)

I took foil flowers and added them to the banner. You can also see that I used some radiant pearls to color the leaves and glitter glue to add sparkle to the flower centers.

And one last look before you go on about your day…

Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to come again as I’ll have more samples using my frugal rummage sale finds.

2016-10-17; rummage sale find; Harvest Blessings


This past weekend I was able to go to a rummage sale specifically for rubber stamp enthusiasts. One of my finds was a TPC Studios acrylic set with the theme of a Harvest Dinner invitation. The sentiment is from another find; a Stampin’ Up set that I don’t recall the name of.

I was just experimenting on a scrap piece of paper and decided to mount it as it seemed to turn out ok.

2016-10-16 (2)

I inked the leaves with 2 shades of green and then came in with brown for the branches. I just used the ink pad so it’s not accurate in placement but looks just fine. I also added another rummage sale find, Stickles glitter glue.

And one more look at the card before you go on about your day…

I got a good haul from the rummage sale and I’ve been better at behaving myself. I only choose low priced items. In this case, the sheet of acrylic stamps was $2.

I have more new finds to experiment with and will share shortly!
