Stamp Camp Day 1

Finally a chance to post about some of the cards I made a stamp camp which was a few weeks ago now.  I drafted this post at least a week ago, but I needed some more close up photos.  Once I had the photos our internet and home phone went down for 4-5 days.  Very frustrating!  Once we got our internet and phone up and running again, we have had some friends from Japan visiting us, so no time for my blog.  So here it is now.

Here are some cards I made on Day 1 of Stamp Camp.


The first card on the left was made using four different embossing folders.  I embossing the brown card, cut it into a square (about 1.5cm squared).  inked the embossed texture, and then framed it with darker card.  I added the string to the bottom square, the brads and flowers to the top two squares and arranging them on the card.  The brown branch was cut out (from a template) but you could easily draw your own.  Lastly it was stamped with Happy Birthday.   Here is a close up of it. 


White and blue card:
For the second card, the cutting of the dies onto white and blue card was already done for us, so it mainly invovled putting the card together.  (Sorry, I am not sure what the name of the die is.)  Once I had put it together I added liquid pearls and covered them with a glitter.  I love the butterfly die we used on this card.


Red Flower:
Firstly I cut the white and black card to size and then stamped the flower onto white card.  I also stamped onto scrap white card the flower two more times and the top bud.  Then I put the white stamped card through the cuttlebug, embossed it with swiss dots.  I coloured the flower.  Then I carefully cut the wavey strip through the whtie paper, but leaving it attached where the stem of the flower is so it was still one piece of card.  I added the black ribbon and then mounted it on the black card.  Lastly I added the two layers of the flower and bud.
