April Stamp Camp

Project #1 will be this flower pot pull-out card. I just saw one the other day on SCS and just had to make one. Then, I decided to include it as a stamp camp project.
This photo shows the slider pulled out. I made this one a birthday card, but it could be used for many other occasions. The instructions said to use patterned paper on the bottom of the pot, but I made mine out of Really Rust and just sponged it with Close to Cocoa. My flowers were cut with the Cricut Machine out of the 6" X 6" Prints Pack designer papers (Level 1 Hostess). This was a Technique Lover's Challenge a couple of weeks ago so there are a lot of these online.

Project #2 is a bit more simple. It's masculine, and I stamped "Happy Father's Day" inside which is lined with white. I just stamped the images from "Nature Silhouettes" on Naturals Ivory and distressed the panel. I matted it on Chocolate Chip and adhered it to an Almost Artichoke base card. I paper pierced in the upper right and lower left corners. It seems like I always use distressing when I make masculine cards!
Project #3 was posted earlier. It was for SC225, but I liked it so I used it for a stamp camp project.
Project #4 is basically a CASE of Mary Fish's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card. I loved the color combo! Hers has patterned paper matted with the blue and the main image was tilted. Hers is also a square card. I also liked all the scallops! It makes a great summer card!
Project #5 is my favorite! I pretty much CASEd this one from a magazine. The one in the magazine had a sentiment inside, but there was a framed cut-out on the front so you could see the sentiment. I just loved the picket fence idea! There's 2 strips, 1/4" wide, going horizontally for the rails and the pickets are 2-1/4" (X 3) and 2" (X 2). I used the "Little Leaves" Sizzlit for the "bushes" and the Flower Trio Punch for the flowers. The flowers are embossed and have white centers done with the White Gel Pen. You can't see it, but the Delicate Dots paper is torn at the bottom and curled up, but it's behind the fence. The butterfly was punched with the MS Butterfly punch. Thanks for stopping by!!
