These cards are similar to the cards that were posted on April 17th. They were made using the flip side of the designer series paper!

Stamp Camp Options 3 & 4

Here are some more cards you can make at my Stamp Camp on Saturday. These would be great for summer birthdays, or for just keeping in touch with a friend. They are made using the Polka Dot Punches Stamp set, which was a Sale-a-Bration set. If you missed out on getting this set, I have an extra set that I will give away FREE, to the first person who places a $50 minimum order (before s/h and tax) by April 28th. You must place your order through me (and not on my website.)

Stamp Set: Polka Dot Punches; Think Happy Thoughts
Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Only Orange, Green Galore and Whisper White
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Only Orange, Green Galore
Accessories: Scallop circle punch, 1 3/8 “circle punch, 1 1/4” circle punch, purchased brad, dimensionals

Here are samples of Father’s Day cards. The green one will be my SWAP at our demonstrator’s meeting on Tuesday night, but you could make the blue ones, or another color combination using “Manchester” designer series paper and coordinating cardstock.

Hope you can drop by on Saturday!

Quilt Card

I have seen these quilt cards everywhere……….but I CASEd mine from my favorite blogger, Dawn.
She has a tutorial on how to make the card, so I won’t repeat details here. I used the Baja Breeze Pattern designer paper, and a little bit of Baja Breeze 5/8” striped grosgrain ribbon behind the quilt.
I am planning a “Stamp Camp” for Saturday April 25th, when the rest of my family will be away. (Cliff and Ben will be at Cub Scout camp, and Emily will be participating in the 30 hour famine with the youth group at church.) You are invited to come to my house anytime between 9am – 9pm to make your choice of projects. Come when you can, stay as little or as long as you like! I will (have Emily) post some of the projects as soon as I get the samples completed and photographed. Most cards will be 4 for $5. Contact me with any question. Refreshments will be provided! If you are local, hope to see you there!

Egg Hunt

Tomorrow is Stamp Club and the 3D project we will be making is this altered soup can. I opened the can using a Pampered Chef can opener – the kind that doesn’t leave a sharp edge. After enjoying the soup and washing the can, I covered it with patterned paper (non SU.) I used the new “Egg Hunt” wheel from the Occasions mini catalog on a 1” strip of whisper white. I colored the eggs using colored pencils. I used the Eyelet Border punch along both edges of a 3” strip of Lovely Lilac cardstock, and then layered it onto the can using SNAIL and sticky strip. I used a retired stamp to make the tag, but I think I will use the scraps from the 1” wheeled strip when we make the project tomorrow. Then you fill the can with whatever you choose, seal it back up using Crystal Effects, craft glue, or a hot glue gun. The person you give the gift to, opens the can using the pop top. I made these for teacher gifts for different holidays (filling them with candy and a lottery ticket) and they were a big hit!
