April 2010 Stamp Camp Projects

This post is for my friend, Melinda, in California. She doesn't get to many Stamp Camps since she moved away, but she does come once in a while. She spoke to one of the ladies who came to last month's stamp camp who told her about the cards. She was hoping I'd post them so she could see. Here they are, Melinda!! Sorry it took me so long to get around to taking photos!!!
Project #1 was VERY simple. It's Mellow Moss (retiring) on Basic Black. The Moss piece is embossed with one of the Cuttlebug Asian embossing folders and then sanded. The symbol for "Dream" is stamped with Basic Black. Inside, we stamped the Asian girl from "Dream Gardens" with Mellow Moss.
Project #2 was the most time consuming. The new designer paper from the Summer Mini is distressed, sponged and torn to reveal parts of maps from the same DSP as the main panel. The images are from the new stamps that coordinate with the paper. They were stamped and cut out. The plane was popped up on Bashful Blue. The orange is Pumpkin Pie. All edges were distressed.
Project #3 was CASEd from someone on SCS, but I have forgotten who it was!! Sorry! Everything is sponged here. I used "Autumn Vines" DSP and punched six tags. The main tag was just a rectangle that was punched with the Tag Corner Punch, stamped with "Pocket Silhouettes" and crimped at the bottom. An eyelet and hemp twine were added.
Project #4 is a Gate Fold card. I try to use different kinds of folds as often as possible. The base card is Cameo Coral (retiring) and I used some retiring DSP as well. I used Nesties for the circles, Cameo Coral and Old Olive Punched flowers and a sentiment from "Well Scripted."
Project #5 uses the retiring Lavender Lace card stock with Whisper White. We stamped the flowers from "Elements of Style" (Summer Mini) and colored with Water Color Pencils; then, we blended with Blender Pens and Baby Oil. It's a fun technique.
Well, there you go Melinda!! I hope you can make it to another Stamp Camp when you're in town!!!
