January 2009 Stamp Camp


This is going to be an "All Occassions" Stamp Camp. Project #1 is a Baby Card.
  • Stamps: Fun & Fast Notes, Short & Sweet
  • Papers: Certainly Celery, GP White
  • Ink: Certainly Celery and Certainly Celery Marker
  • Accessories: Big Shot, CB Swiss Dots EF, Nestabilities Rectangle and Scallop Rectangle, Word Window Punch, Celery GG Ribbon, Dimensionals
Project #2 is a Birthday Card. The main image was stamped three times: First, the whole cupcake with the candle; next, the frosting with the candle, and finally, just the candle. These were cut out and colored with markers. Each layer was popped up. The beads were glued on last.

  • Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes
  • Papers: Yoyo Yellow, Brilliant Blue, GP White
  • Ink: Black Stazon, Real Red; Markers: Yoyo Yellow, Brilliant Blue, Real Red
  • Accessories: Big Shot, Nestabilities Oval and Scallop Oval, Dimensionals, Red Bead Duo
Project #3 is a Get Well Card. This was the third try at making this card! The first one was awful and the second one was too much trouble for a stamp camp. The DSP was embossed with the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder. The main image panel was sponged with a dauber. The embellishments in the lower right were punched with the 1/4" Circle Punch and then around that with the 1/2" Circle Punch.
  • Stamps: Pun Fun
  • Papers: Naturals White, Tempting Turquoise, GP White, Turquoise Prints DSP (retired)
  • Ink: Black Stazon, Tempting Turquoise
  • Accessories: Big Shot, CB D'Vine Swirls EF, 1/4" and 1/2" Circle Punches, Word Window Punch, Snips, Dimensionals


Project #4 is a Thinking of You type card. Again, I sponged the edeges of the main image panel and sentiment panel with a dauber.

  • Stamps: Upsy Daisy
  • Papers: Naturals White, Always Artichoke, Rose Red, GP White
  • Ink: Rose Red; Markers: Rose Red, Always Artichoke
  • Accessories: Dauber, Dimensionals

Project #5 is the Valentine card. The white panel is supposed to be embossed with the Heart Blocks folder but someone borrowed it, so I embossed this sample with Birds n' Swirls which works too. The heart in the envelope is removeable, so they can write on the back if they like.

  • Stamps: Love You Much
  • Papers: Real Red, GP White, Red Copy Paper (for the envelope)
  • Ink: Real Red
  • Accessories: Big Shot, CB Birds n' Swirls EF, Sizzix (SU!) Scallop Envelope Die, Snips, Dimensionals
