SENDING [YOU] SUNSHINE with STAMPIN' UP!


 Hello, Stampers!

    It's a cold and dreary October day here in Indiana, so I thought I'd share a little sunshine.  This is one of the cards from my October Stamp Camp. This set makes "painting" a lovely water scene pretty darned easy.
    The water is stamped with Balmy Blue, stamped off first, and not stamped off for the deeper section onto a precut piece of Shimmery White card stock.  The sentiment and the little darker "island" image are Balmy Blue.  The sun was stamped with Mango Melody and the leaves with Granny Apple Green. We used a circle punch to make a stencil and add the extra light around the sun with a sponge dauber.  Wink of Stella was brushed over the water.
    The DSP is from the Artistry Blooms pack.  Use any ribbon you like and add some enamel dots or sequins of your choice and you're done.  Products links are below. 

Happy Stampin’!

WAY TO GOAT by STAMPIN' UP! - TWO FOR ONE!

 



Hey, Stampers -
    Here are two more cards from my October Stamp Camp.  You get two cards with one run through your Big Shot or Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine!  Special thanks to The Stamp Doc (Melissa Stout) for her YouTube video tutorial, from which I learned how to use the Playful Alphabet Dies to make these fun cards, with my own take, of course - like "U 've goat mail" instead of "You goat mail."  Also, we used Rainbow Glimmer Paper instead of DSP.  Here is the link to the video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCv9tT_VAUM&t=3s  Be sure to give Melissa's video a 👍.  The goats are popped up on little wobblies springs.
    There are several steps involved and it can be a bit tedious, but everyone was successful in completing their cards.  I created a template for the letters once I had them lined up the way I wanted - just ran them through the Big Shot with scrap card stock.  You will understand more after watching the video.

NORTHERN LIGHTS WITH STAMPIN' UP! MOUNTAIN AIR


Hello, Stampers!

    This lovely northern lights card was one of my October Stamp Camp projects.  Really fun, if you like sponging.  ;-)  The moon was stamped with Versamark (don't forget to use an embossing buddy!) and embossed with white EP.  The colors are:  Mossy Meadow CS and ink, Night of Navy CS and ink (or Memento to stamp mountains on Navy), Highland Heather, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive, all sponged onto Shimmery White CS.  The stars were added with the white Chalk Marker.  Supplies are below.

Happy Stampin’!
