So Long, Farewell Stamp Camp

All of the projects for the stamp camp next week are made with retiring stamp sets, thus, the title of the stamp camp! Project #1 is made with "Give Thanks." I've used the bucket of apples from the set a lot but hardly ever used the sunflower. I figured this might be my last chance. I like the gingham ribbon with the sunflower. It gives it a more "country" feel. I saw a similar ribbon treatment online and liked the idea of using the eyelets. I also used dots of gold glitter in the flower center to kick it up a notch. The sentiment panel is popped up.
  • Stamps: Give Thanks
  • Papers: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Summer Sun, Naturals White
  • Ink: Stazon Black; Markers: Summer Sun, Old Olive, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip
  • Accessories: 1/8" and 1/16" Punch (for eyelets), Black Eyelets, Black Gingham Ribbon, Ticket Corner Punch, Dimensionals
Project #2 is a belated birthday card. We all need those now and then, right? This set, "Older & Wiser" is a Level 3 Hostess Set. The only reason I have it is because one of my ladies earned it, and she gave it to me!! Wasn't that sweet?!!! We might use the Word Window Punch for the sentiment instead of the way I did it here. The main image panel with all of its mats is popped up.
  • Stamps: Older & Wiser
  • Papers: Brilliant Blue, White, Green Galore, Brilliant Blue Prints DSP
  • Ink: Stazon Azure Blue
  • Accessories: WCW Crayons, Aqua Painter, Whisper White GG Ribbon, 1/8" Punch, Jump Ring
Project #3 is a sympathy card. I don't have ANY sympathy type stamps except this sentiment I got from my ellie in the White Elephant Stampede I participated in recently. I think we should all have at least one sympathy card on hand. I got the inspiration for this card from Happy Heart on Splitcoaststampers. Her card can be found here. I punched my flowers and used white gel pen for the centers, and I cut out stamped leaves. I also eliminated the butterfly so my ladies would have less cutting to do. I also eliminated the ribbon. Imagine that! ME! Leaving off ribbon!!! This is the only card for the stamp camp that doesn't have ribbon on it! LOL!
  • Stamps: Blossoms Abound, Unknown Sympathy Sentiment
  • Papers: GP White, Perfect Plum
  • Ink: Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, Mellow Moss, Certainly Celery, White Gel Pen
  • Accessories: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF, SU! Scallop Punch (New), Spring Bouquet Flower Punch (retired), Snips, Glue Dots
Project #4 is a combination of two retiring sets. The rose buds are from "Wild Rose" and the sentiment is from "Never Ending Joy". I will really miss both of these sets; however, I can't wait to see the new catalog to see what replaces these! The roses are two-step stamped and then cut out and adhered with small glue dots. The little bow is also attached with a glue dot. The sentiment panel is popped up on Dimensionals.
  • Stamps: Wild Rose, Never Ending Joy
  • Papers: Certainly Celery, GP White
  • Ink: Black Stazon, Yoyo Yellow, Certainly Celery
  • Accessories: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF, Ticket Corner Punch, Snips, 1/8" Satin Ribbon, Ticket Corner Punch, Glue Dots, Dimensionals
Do you recognize this? Project #5 is the same card that I made for this week's Sketch Challenge. I liked it so much that I thought I'd share it. I already explained how this one was made in this post.
  • Stamps: Noble Deer, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
  • Papers: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
  • Ink: Stazon Timber Brown, Chocolate Chip
  • Accessories: Old Olive Twill Ribbon, Chocolate Brown Square Brads, Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes EF, Sponge

I hope everyone will enjoy making all five of these projects!
