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.
All products available from my online store - link via button on the right.

Our first card shouts "Summer!" at you.  Base card in Tangelo Twist, stamped with the new, so useful,  Kinda Eclectic stamps.
A CASED card here. The original, by Louise Sims, used a self embossed cardstock featured in last years catalogue along with sequin trim. Here I used Versamark ink to create a watermark effect on the base card. Stamp set is Petite petals, paired with it's matching punch and the Scalloped Tag Top Punch.
Hope you get some inspiration with the cards posted. If you'd like to know more then contact me - Lesley Lendon at lesleylendon@gmail.com or call 07725 217695. I look forward to hearing from you!
