May Stamp Camp

I really need to get some better lighting in my stamping room. This card is made with Pretty in Pink satin ribbon and card stock, along with Tea Party Designer paper. I used the new stamp set, Sweet Scoops, and heat-embossed my vanilla ice cream scoop. Cutting it out was a bit tricky, being white on white, but worth the effort. Looks good enough to eat. The cherry was finished off with Crystal Effects. Both the scallop corner and border punches were used to make it just a bit frilly.

Graduation time! The stamp set called Starring You is so versatile for this kind of celebration. The base card is Sahara Sand and the punched stars are Crushed Curry. There is some Soft Suede peeking out too. Stole it from Nancy Riley.

One of my favorite In Colors is Crushed Curry. It looks so pretty and bright when matched with Dusty Durango. (Doesn't that name sound like an old cowboy movie star?) Notice the scalloped circle looks just like the sunflowers? To get that effect, after you punch your scalloped circle, place it either on a post-it note or Dotto on paper, slip it back into the scallop punch. Line it up, then slightly turn so that the points are on the scallop. Then punch! Voila, a sunflower! Found this on the Demonstrator's website by Paula Fats Cannon.

I get bored with standard size cards and thought this one would be fun to make. It uses the Wellness Wishes bandaid stamp popped up with Dimensionals and a small, punched heart popped on top of that. The original was a square and made by Crystal Lenssen. So cute.

I got the idea of a magnetic memo board from my stampin' friend in Texas, Diane Burns. She made one for me and I knew I wanted to demonstrate them at a camp. My version uses a 5 x 7 sheet of galvanized 'step flashing' (don't ask me!) from True Value Hardware. (I truly believe I bought all there was in North St. Louis County!) We used the Sweet Pea Designer Papers and felts. (Gonna miss those!) I love the results. Used the Crop-o-dile Corner Chomper to round the edges and Crop-o-dile hole puncher for the Old Olive wide grosgrain ribbon. Now, I need some memos!
