Project for Sassy Chic - June 2020

I managed to finalize my project for June's Sassy Chic stamp camp:

I thought that the first version seen HERE, was just too boring, but didn't want to glam it up too much as it is a "guy" card.  Card base is Pear Pizzazz with a layer of Mossy Meadow topped with a piece of Garden Lane dsp that is stamped with the row of trees and grass from Winter Woods.  I added a small banner cut from a die in the Tasteful Labels die set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog that was stamped with a sentiment from the Let It Ride stamp set.  I didn't change the inside.  

Thanks for visiting and I hope you are all staying healthy and safe!

Stamp Camp North - June, 2020

Once again we will be doing a "virtual" stamp camp for the month of June at the Westminster Elks Lodge.  With the Lodge currently closed for activities like ours due to Covid 19, we will be offering a collection of cards to stay in touch with our crafting buddies.  Here is the announcement:

If you have questions or concerns about this camp, please feel free to leave a comment or use the form in the sidebar.  We had some really great cards for May (see posts HERE and HERE) and are looking forward to doing the same for June.

Sassy Chic Stamp Camp card

I think I have the design for my card for the Sassy Chic Stamp Camp in June:

Card inside:
Card base is Pear Pizzazz with a layer of Mossy Meadow underneath the stamped Garden Lane dsp.  The trees are from the Winter Woods stamp set and the sentiment is from the Let It Ride stamp set which is unfortunately retiring.  The inside was also stamped with a stamp from the Let It Ride stamp set.  All the stamping was done with Mossy Meadow ink.  Hopefully our campers can use this for Father's Day or Birthday or just to say HI!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you are all staying healthy and safe!

The cards from our virtual Rose Hill Grange camp should be available next and I am really excited to see those.  There is also a demonstrator card swap going on using items from the upcoming SU 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Those swaps are always so much fun and the cards are always outstanding!

Rose Hill Grange card - May, 2020

I wanted something simple and elegant for this month's Rose Hill Grange stamp camp card.  Here is what I came up with:

The Ornate Garden suite of products is so gorgeous and when combined with a daisy - well it's just plain fun!  Due to restrictions from Stampin' Up! we were unable to sell card kits with images that are pre-stamped. I resorted to my old standby solution - create your own!  This sentiment is computer generated and then stamped with a really old daisy like stamp from Denami Design.  I used it on the inside computer generated sentiment as well:
I do not have the ink pads in the new in-colors, but used a So Saffron ink pad and I think it still looks just fine.  The card base is Bumblebee and the dsp is from the Ornate Garden pack.  The daisy has been punched out using Bumblebee and Very Vanilla.,  The Very Vanilla daisy was embossed using an old embossing folder in order to give it some texture.  The center of the daisy is a punched out circle of gold glimmer paper for a bit of added bling!  The daisy is assembled using glue dots and then popped up using dimensionals.  The die cut is Early Espresso and it is also popped up with dimensionals.

We have had a great response to our "virtual" solutions for our crafting buddies that create with us at camps. This is the first set of "card kits" that we are doing, but it looks like it will still be a while before we can get together in person so it's good to have a way to remain connected! I will be posting notices of future activities from Sassy Chic stamp camp, Stamp Camp North and Rose Hill Grange stamp camp and it you want to join in the fun, leave me a comment or use the form on the sidebar and I will get back to you.

I do not know what is going on with my post titles.  There is some code in there that isn't working and I have not been able to figure it out.  So sorry about the "Sorry." in the title bar.  I am working on it and any hints would be appreciated!

Another Sneak Peek!

I am still trying to play with some of my new toys.  Here's a card I made today:

I wanted to highlight this gorgeous dsp from the Forever Greenery set.  I just love the papers in this set!  The colors are rich and lovely.  The card base is Pear Pizzazz with a layer of Pretty Peacock under the dsp panel.  The sentiment is from the So Sentimental set and I stamped it in Pretty Peacock with a stamp from Forever Fern stamped in Soft Seafoam to accent it.  I cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly dies, added a piece of Pear Pizzazz ribbon and it was done!

A Paper Pumpkin card!

One of my greatest frustrations is not being able to get inspired to play with the monthly Paper Pumpkin kit.  Well this month I decided to change that narrative!  Here's a card from this month's Paper Pumpkin kit:

Basic and not very complicated, it is a start! Hope to make a bunch more cards from these monthly kits in the coming days  and months as I continue to get the craft cave cleaned and sorted.

I should soon have some cards from this month's Stamp Camp North virtual stamp camp and I will also have information on the camps happening in June at Sassy Chic, Stamp Camp North and Rose Hill Grange.  We are really trying to stay in touch with all of our crafty buddies!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you are all staying healthy and safe!

Added Sentiment and finished!

I really don't like needing these cards, but sometimes (especially right now) it is heart braking.  I finished off this card I made last week by adding a sentiment:

I am sending this to my uncle and his family.  My aunt passed away from Covid 19 and I know that it has been very hard on all of them.

Hope to have some cheerier cards on here soon!  More of my initial order from the new catalog is set to arrive and I will definitely be playing with these new toys!

Today and tomorrow I will be featuring the cards we made for the virtual Sassy Chic Stamp Camp in May.  Here is the first group:
