Rose Hill Grange Camp Card - November 2020

This will be my final camp card this year as I am taking the month of December off.  DH had his knee surgery last week and is doing very well and we just decided the time was right for us to just hunker down and sit tight at home. Hope to get caught up on a bunch of things, but time will tell.

The card base is Just Jade with a layer of Shaded Spruce that was embossed using the Evergreen Forest folder.  I added a piece of Whisper White with a sentiment from my stash stamped in Shaded Spruce and cut using the Stitched Rectangles dies and popped up using dimensionals. I then die cut one of my stash of dies using Gold Foil and attached it using glue dots. The inside is a piece of Whisper White with a holly leaves and berries stamp from my stash. I left it blank so that the user can either stamp a sentiment or hand write a message. The sentiment is blinged up a bit with a red rhinestone. You gotta have some bling right?

Color Variation for Christmas

While I will forever love the green, red, gold color combination, I wanted to do something just a bit different with the die I recently received.  Here's a "snowy" version:
For this card I used a Night of Navy card base with a layer of dsp from the Snowflake Splendor pack. I added an embossed strip of Night of Navy and the die cut from Silver Foil.  I punched a couple of spiky flowers from the excess pieces of Silver Foil and added some gemstones from the Noble Peacock gem collection.

Another Christmas Card

I don't know about you, but when I get a new toy I really like to play with it.  I got this die earlier this week and couldn't wait to play with it.  I have done die cuts using different colors and you may see the results of that one of these days, but for Christmas I just didn't think I could go wrong with green, red and gold:
I like how it turned out!

Rose Hill Grange virtual camp card/kit

Here is the card I am making for October's Rose Hill Grange virual camp:

The card base is Shaded Spruce with a layer of Night of Navy.  The image is stamped on heavy Whisper White and is a stamp from this month's stamp offering on Technique Junkies.  It is stamped in Night of Navy in.  The sentiment is from my box of Christmas sentiments and is an old unmounted red rubber stamp stamped using Night of Navy in and mounted on a strip of silver glitter paper.

Not sure what I am doing with the inside yet, but it will probably be something computer generated.

A few more ...

Here's a couple more:

The top card is just a card blank using heavy weight Whisper White.  The stamp is from this month's new stamps from Technique Junkies and I colored it using SU markers and Copic markers. The bottom card uses Shaded Spruce, Real Red, Basic Black and gold foil along with a wonderful die purchased from a friend. Sentiments on both cards are current SU stamp sets Banner Year and Have a Hoot.

Sassy Chic Stamp Camp - October 2020

Here is my card for October's Sassy Chic Stamp Camp:
The theme this month is for fall cards.  I chose Thankful Season to use for my card.  The card base is Basic Black with a layer of Pumpkin Pie that was embossed using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.  I added a square of Mango Melody topped by a piece of the Plaid Tidings dsp.  I added two gold foil leaves cut using the Gathered Leaves dies and mounted the sentiment stamped in Cajun Craze on Whisper White and punched with a Label Me Fancy punch and layered on a Pumpkin Pie piece punched using the Lovely Label punch.  I added a couple of Gold Glitter dots and called it done!
