Quick Card

Here's a quick card I made for a friend....
The shimmer is Vanilla Smooch Spray, the stars are from one of the Project Life - just to show they're NOT just for scrapbooking!
Check them out in the catalogue - you might be surprised when you view them with afresh!

Couple of Retreat Challenges.

At the recent retreat we were challenged to make a tag and a calendar. I'd wanted to get stuck into my scrapbooking so made a quick calendar by using Melon Mambo cardstock to make a neverending card stamped with gold leaves from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set.
By making a neverending card, the calendar was able to stand unaided.
As you can see, it got a little battered after being stuck at the bottom of my bag and needs some TLC!
I wanted my tag to be a little 'outside of the box'. I think you'd have struggled to get a box to put it in since I made it 12" x 12"! This will be great as a ready made scrapbook background page. I LOVED using our new masks and, the now retired, En Francais stamp, along with Kinda Eclectic - again (can you spot a recurring theme here!) and our new washi tape.

Last Two!

The final cards from Stamp Camp. And, I do have to say, two of my favourites.
How many uses could this Tap Tap Tap set have! Background is the Dictionary stamp on Naturals Ivory cardstock, trimmed with the spiral edge Punch..
This is my favourite colour combo this season - Very Vanilla, Lost Lagoon and Crushed Curry. If I had my way these 3 colours would NEVER retire! This 'half easel' card features the train from the Traveller stamp set and greetings from Amazing Brithday stamp set. Embossing folder is Alphabet Press.
Items featured are available through me and can be viewed in our current catalogue. Link to online catalogue is in the lefthand column. For a paper copy to gloat over contact me - Lesley Lendon, phone 07725 217695 or email lesleylendon@gmail.com.

Two Stamp Camp Cards.

Hi! A bit of Gorgeous Grunge for you today in Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake. Didn't have the butterly stamps and punches to hand to use so opted for, the now retired, Backyard Basics for my butterfly. You can't see clearly but the background has a soft shimmer/sheen which is from being sprayed with Vanilla Smooch.
How about this for a quick birthday card. Suitable for all, just change up the colour. Flame is the wing from the Bird Builder punch, greeting from Let Your Hair Down (a Hostess Set). Finish off with a bit of paper piercing, Voila!

More Cards from Stamp Camp

This card makes me laugh - it's the octopus from Sea Street that does it! Another card using a tag top style punch, this time the Angled Tab Top Punch. Love the tiny crab, lobster and starfish inside.
A softer, subtler card. Suitable for birthday, but also 'Thinking of You', Sympathy' or 'Get Well'. I'll leave the sentiment off until needed.
The background is stamped with versamark to create a watermark effect. The background behind the nest is using pool party ink, the nest is from the World of Dreams set.
