Summer Camp Week Four

For the last week of summer camp an array of blues and greens were chosen as the colors. I made a card for a very good friend who loves to read as much as I do.

I used a technique on the background of this card that Gina K demonstrated on Stamp TV. Basically, you cover the card stock with versamark and emboss with embossing powder. Then, run the heat embossed piece through an embossing machine with an embossing folder. This gives you a piece that's both heat and dry embossed. I wasn't going for a distressed look, but I sanded the piece lightly to bring out the swirls.
The main image is a Stampland stamp. I also bought the template for this stamp making it easy to color. Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. Flowers are Prima.

Chicken Card

I can't believe it's already week three of Summer Camp Cardmaking Class. The colors this week were much more muted than the bright colors from weeks one and two. I made this chicken card using stamps from Tweety Jill and Invoke Arts.

In the Mail Card

This is the card that I made for the second week of the card making class I'm taking. We had a different color palette to work with this week--lots of bright summer colors. I used card stock, ribbon, stamps and the postage die from Papertrey Ink. I also used stamps from Rubbernecker, Fancy Pants and About Art Accents.
