STAMPIN' UP!'S BACK ON YOUR FEET FOR BEGINNERS CARD BUFFET


Hello, Stampers!
     I hope you are able to stay reasonably cool during this miserable heat wave.  It looks like it might break overnight here in Indiana - I emphasize the word might.  I have used this good excuse to stay indoors to begin preparing for a card-making "outing" a professional friend of mine has planned for her staff early in August.  Each year the office closes for a day and she plans and treats her staff to a surprise outing - last year they did goat Yoga!  This class will certainly be a far cry from that.  They will do something outdoors for part of the day and then to my house - they have never stamped!  
       I pre-stamped all of the images for these note cards (based on cards shared on Pinterest by Amy Koendors, using the Scalloped Note Cards).  My group will stamp their own sentiments and, of course, color and assemble.  I even pre-tied the bows and, per a tip from my upline, attached them to a strip of glue dots!

STAMPIN' UP!'S COUNTRY ROAD IN COPPER


Hi, Stampers!
     Stampers at my July camp could make either one of these cards and could also reverse mat colors, etc.  However, all of the weather vanes are heat embossed with Copper EP.
     On the focal point piece, the light backgrounds were stamped, then we used the Embossing Buddy before stamping with Versamark and heat embossing.  The feint backgrounds are from the Gallery Grunge set and stamped with Crumb Cake Ink, some stamped off first. The stars on the card on the right are stamped in Balmy Blue, stamped off, first.  The sentiment is in Early Espresso.
     The focal points are 3 x 2-1/4 WW Thick CS.  The colored CS is Pool Party and Early Espresso.  The focal point is lightly sponged around the edge with Crumb Cake and the white mat with Balmy Blue.

FREE AS A BIRD IN THE WOODS


Hi, Stampers!
       This is such a lovely stamp set - so many color options for the birds!  We used the Free as a Bird Bundle for this card.  The focal point is stamped on Shimmery White CS with Memento ink and colored with Blends.  It was die-cut with the second largest of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies that are part of this bundle.
       The card base is Pool Party and the embossing folder is Woodland.  The “ribbon” is Braided Linen Trim, the other embellishments are Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins. We used the Woodland embossing folder for the raised mat layer.  Really pretty simple.

EASY STAMPIN' UP! MEMORABLE MOSAIC/MOSAIC MOOD DSP CARD


Hello, Stampers!
     Here is another card from my July Stamp Camp - so quick and easy!  I love this Specialty DSP with the glossy details.  
     The card base is Terracotta Tile and a couple of the smaller images of the stamp set are stamped on it, also with Terracotta Tile.  The DSP is 3-7/8" square, mounted on Soft Suede, and the sentiment is stamped on with Soft Suede on Very Vanilla.  We added short tails of 5/8" burlap ribbon.
     The inside is Very Vanilla with a strip of the DSP down the right side.

MEMORABLE MOSAIC - July 2019 STAMP CAMP and CHANGE IN AUGUST STAMP CAMP DATE



Hi, Stamper's!
     We created a version of this card at Stamp Camp this past Saturday - stampers had options as to sentiments.  This particular sentiment is embossed with White EP and it is from the Painted Glass stamp set.  We also stamped a butterfly from that set inside the card.  The card stock colors above are Pear Pizzazz and Highland Heather, but we used different colors at camp - Rococo Rose and Mint Macaron.
Supplies and details are below - click "Read in browser."
Happy Stampin’!
