Rose Hill Grange Stamp Camp - April 2021

Here is my card for this month's Rose Hill Grange stamp camp:
I love the Oh So Ombre paper from the Sale a Bration catalog. The sentiment is from a set from Echo Park and the foilage is one of this month's new stamps from Technique Junkies. I added some glitter gems to add a bit of bling. The inside has a flower pot and butterfly from the same Echo Park set and lots of room for writing some encouraging words and we all need those these days! The card base is Granny Apple Green and the dsp is layered on a Basic Black layer.

Time is running out to get signed up for this camp and here's the details:
We always have so many fun and beautiful cards from this camp and I encourage you to give it a try!

Playing with Alcohol (ink and isopropyl that is)!

I recently watched a video from one of my favorite stampers, Kelly Acheson of A Stamp Above. Here's a link to the video. I used my blends along with some 90+ isopropyl alcohol on card stock vellum and it is just so much fun! Here's a couple of examples:

I am really looking forward to playing more with this technique!

Stamp Camp North - April 2021

Stamp Camp North is coming up very soon and here is the card I made for it:
I have a real love for the Forever Greenery designer series paper and have not used it nearly enough. I have another month before I retires so I thought I would put it to use here. This is a "postcard" type of card with a flap on the front that lifts up for a place for a message. The butterfly is a die from Brilliant Wings and is cut from gold foil paper and embellished with a soon to retire gold glitter dot. The card base is Soft Seafoam and there is a layer of Pear Pizzazz and a layer of dsp. The flap is Soft Seafoam with an inside of Basic White and the outside uses the Forever Greenery dsp. The sentiment is computer generated and punched with the scalloped oval punch and decorated with more of those lovely gold glitter dots. Sure hope the campers like it!

Here is the information on how to get signed up for this fun camp:

Sassy Chic Stamp Camp - April 2021

Here's my card for April's Sassy Chic Stamp Camp:
I have had this dragonfly stamp set and the coordinating punch and dsp for a while and had never played with it. It was so fun! Here are the materials and techniques I used. Basic White card base with a Cameo Coral layer embossed using the Ornate Floral embossing folder, a piece of 3x3 dsp from the Dandy Garden 6x6 pack of dsp. I used blending brushes on a strip of Basic White using Cameo Coral, Balmy Blue and Mossy Meadow inks. I used the Dragonfly Garden Stamp set with the long image stamped on the sponged piece and then layered that on a Basic Black piece.  I then stamped the dragonfly image and punched it using the Dragonflies punch. I painted the dragonfly using Bumblebee re-inker and water then highlighted it using a Bumblebee marker and spritzed it with a mixture of Champagne Mist and alcohol. I topped it off with a Gold Glitter Dot. The inside is stamped with the small dragonflies from the stamp set.

Here's the flyer with information about this camp and I encourage you to get signed up as all the cards I have seen so far have been outstanding!

Rose Hill Grange Stamp Camp/Kits card for March 2021

Here's my card for this month's Rose Hill Grange Stamp Camp/Kits:
This camp provides an opportunity to delve into my stash and this card is a good example. The card base is Highland Heather and it is layered with a Basic Black layer topped by an Hombre dsp piece from celebration with a stamp from this month's new stamps from Technique Junkies. I love stamping on dsp and this image just screamed for it. I layered to die cut butterflies that have been blinged up with some glittery spritz and then added a couple of rhinestone jewels for added bling. Here are the sign up details for this camp:
We have lots of fun with this camp and while we cannot get together and craft, it offers the opportunity to continue creating even during a pandemic.
