Stamp Camp Projects

Last week I had a fun stamp camp and everyone loved the projects.  Here are  few samples I thought I would share with you. 

Coffee cup holder measurements ~
2 ~ 2" x 7 1/2" pieces of card stock scored at 2 1/8", 4 3/4", and 6". Punch ends with 1 1/2" panel with scallop tag topper punch, adhere opposite ends together with Tombow or Tear Tape.
DSP for cup holder ~ 2 pieces each ~ 1 7/8" x 2", 1 7/8" x 1 1/8", 1 7/8" x 3/4".
I did use a couple of glue dots on the top section to hold it together. This helps the cup to stay secure.
To get a template for the cup, I just cut one of the cups one apart, traced it and cut it from cardboard that comes with the DSP.

 Who doesn't love the new woodland embossing folder. There are so many possibilities.

For this fun card I used the soft sky  ink pad directly on the embossing folder (I mostly dabbed it towards to top so it would look like the sky and clouds and not the bottom so it would look like snow); next stamp the trees from Lovely as a Tree or any other tree stamp you like with Mossy Meadow directly on the embossing folder; I ran the folder through the big shot using whisper white card stock and when it comes out it looks like this.  I added the bird from the Tree Builder punch. 
I hope these inspired you.

You can make this card at your own Stampin' UP party!  Contact me today to get on my calendar.

Warm Wishes & Holiday Stamp Camp

On Tuesday, Penny and her friends gathered together to make cards at her workshop.  What a fun time.  Amanda (on the right) had never touched a stamp before and she was so excited when she finished her card. She mentioned that her husband would never believe she made this cute card.  Next to her is Sheri a seasoned stamper friend.  You can tell she is serious with her head down and working away. :)

Margaret in the front with the orange shirt is also  newby to stamping and you can tell by that big smile that she was loving stamping too.  Penny and Bonnie along with Sheri are in my stamp clubs and classes on a regular basis.

If you want to join us for a fun afternoon or evening of creating contact me today. I promise you will find your creative side and it is a great stress reliever (I have heard it is cheaper than therapy)  :)

 This is the card we made and they loved the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I borrowed this idea from a fellow demo Carol Valentine from our meeting on Monday to share ideas to share with  our customers.

I love, love. love single sided note cards and this is the one I demonstrated before they made their cards. 


Here are some extra tag samples I made to show them.  

Supply List:

On another note this week when I was on facebook I saw a sample by Ann Craig and I just had to make it.  I love the different ways you can use the embossing folders by adding ink directly to the folder.  This is my first try and I certainly have room for improvement. I just love the way it looks and it is such a great masculine card.  Let me know if you want to have a class with your friends to make this card. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to sign up for my Stamp Camp Oct 3rd. Check it out and contact me today to save your spot. 
 Blessings, Frances
