August 2010 Stamp Camp

My August Stamp Camp is this Friday, so I have been diligently working on the designs. I still have some cutting to do, but it's just for the last three designs which are easy to cut. This Stamp Camp is called "All Fall". The reason I do the fall cards in August is because my September, October and November Stamp Camps are ALL Christmas cards. Having the Halloween and Thanksgiving cards done before the beginning of September works out for mailing anyway.
My last Stamp Camp was ALL punch art. This time, we're only doing one punch art card. I actually posted this card previously because I did it for a Featured Stamper challenge. The punch art design is from Kim Score's Blog. It's one of her free tutorials.
I said we were only doing one punch art design and we are, but some people don't like Halloween cards, so the ladies in my second session will be doing this punch art turkey instead of the goblin card. The instructions for this one are also on Kim Score's Blog. I guess you can tell that I'm a huge fan of Kim Score's punch art designs!
Here's another Halloween card for my first session people to make. The Raven is a single stamp. The DSP, the new crinkle paper (embossed with spiderweb EF) and the stamp are all in the new Holiday Mini Catalog. The DSP has the words from Poe's "Nevermore" in various sizes all over it. Great stuff for Halloween!!
Again, instead of the Raven Halloween card, my second session ladies will make this fall card which I CASEd from the Idea Book & Catalog (IBC). The card stock is Old Olive, Early Espresso and Naturals Ivory. The pumpkins, etc. from "Autumn Harvest" were water colored and cut out. One pumpkin and the leaf are popped up with Dimensionals.
Everyone will be doing this project and the next two. The leaves are from "French Foliage" and the sentiment from "Grateful Greetings". The leaves are stamped with So Saffron, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler, the spots with Soft Suede. The card stock is Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede and Naturals Ivory. The ribbon is Old Olive Taffeta from last year's Holiday Mini.
This card features a "Sailor's Knot". I saw someone use that on a card on SCS and liked the idea. I Googled "Sailor's Knot" and found instructions for it. I'm making all the knots for my Stamp Campers, but I'll show them how to do it. The light house is stamped on Whisper White with Black Stazon and colored with Sahara Sand, Real Red, and Pacific Point Markers. The other card stock is Sahara Sand and Pacific Point. I love to visit light houses in the fall.
The last project is an easel card. When folded, it's just 4.25" square. This one is made using More Mustard and Very Vanilla card stock and retired Autumn Vine DSP. The corn image from "Harvest Home" was colored with Water Color Pencils and blended with a Blender Pen. The sentiment is from "Grateful Greetings". I just had to add my little embossed flowers and leaves. I used tiny gold pearls for the flower centers. All products used to make all seven of the above cards came from Stampin' Up! (except for the gold pearls on the easel card). Thanks for stopping by!!
