February, 2011 Stamp Camp Projects

I made a card on Monday but didn't get a chance to post it before I started feeling kind of poorly. I must have caught a bug. Then, the men came on Tuesday to put new flooring down in my bathrooms. No chance to get creative then. I'm still unpacking boxes that had to be moved out of my craft room in order to put the new floor in there. I have before and after photos, but haven't had time to post those either. Today I got down to business making the projects for this Friday's Stamp Camp.
Project #1 is a masculine St. Patrick's Day card. I used Early Espresso, Old Olive and Whisper White card stocks and the "Lucky Shamrock" stamp. This was inspired by the index card for that stamp on SCS. I made "ribbons" with the Dotted Scallop Border Punch and added strips of Old Olive card stock down the middle of each of those.
Project #2 was inspired by the cover of the Occasions Mini Catalog. I used So Saffron Ribbon instead of yellow card stock, and I used the Scallop Circles #2 Die instead of the Petal Cone Die. The card stocks used here are Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, Melon Mambo, and Regal Rose. I used the Framed Tulips embossing folder, Fun Flowers Bigz Die, Blossom Petals Punch, two ribbons and a button.
Project #3 was inspired by a card that someone in the Stampin' Up! Late Night Stampers Yahoo Group shared. I can't remember who it was. When I find out, I'll edit this post and give them credit. It's a simple card really. I used Daffodil Delight and Very Vanilla card stocks with Greenhouse Gala DSP. They will make two cards with different colors. The sentiment stamp is from "On Your Birthday" stamped with Old Olive, and the ribbon is Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon.
Project #4 is this spinner card which was inspired by the card shown in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I used Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White card stocks. I colored the stamp from "Take A Spin" with markers and attached the Game Spinner Hand. The ribbon is Tangerine Tango striped grosgrain ribbon.
Project #5 is this little gift box made with the Matchbox Die. I used Rose Red for the bottom of the box (not showing), Springtime Vintage DSP for the outside of the box and Very Vanilla for the butterflies which were die cut using the Beautiful Wings Sizzlit. I also used Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon and Basic Pearls. I used a ribbon Rosette as the final touch. Inside, there are four Hershey's Nuggets wrapped with the same DSP as the outside of the box. Everything used to make all five projects is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!!
