November 2011 Stamp Camp

I surfed the net to get ideas for my next stamp camp which is going to be on Friday. I have to get busy! This is a CASE of Erica Cerwin's lovely "Oldie but a Goodie" (Color combo) card. I just loved this design! I used Naturals White for the base card with a layer of Brights DSP (Pacific Point). Then I used Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Marina Mist and Pacific Point for the squares and circles. The snowflakes were stamped with Pacific Point ink and are from "Every Little Bit". I wrapped Silver Cord around twice and tied it in a bow. Thanks, Erica, for the inspiration!! Oh, I will add the rest of the Stamp Camp projects as I get to them.
ETA: Project #2
This card is made with traditional Christmas colors of Glorious Green (retired), Real Red and Whisper White. The center package is from last year's Christmas Specialty Paper. I punched out the packages with a 1-1/4" Square Punch and then trimmed off about 1/8" off the bottom. I also embossed the red and the green packages with the new Stripes EF. The Snowburst EF was used for the background layer. The bows were made with the Triple Layer Blossoms Punch out of Brushed Gold card stock. The tree is from "Season of Joy". Everything except the Nesties is from Stampin' Up!
ETA: Project #3
I used Baja Breeze for the base card and scallop oval. The background layer is Crumb Cake stamped with Chocolate Chip using the Woodgrain background stamp. The main image and sentiment panels are Naturals Ivory. The image from "Tidings of Joy" was stamped with Black Stazon and water colored with the Crayons and Aqua Painter. The ribbon is Baja Breeze 1/8" Ribbon. Again, everything except the Nesties is from Stampin' Up!
ETA: Project #4
This is not a card, but it's very simple. I used recycled packing paper from my SU! orders, straightened it out (ironed some of it), and then I cut it to 7" X 9" pieces to wrap a package of popcorn. I saw something like this from someone in my Yahoo Group. Hers was more detailed. I cut some DSP to 2" X 9" strips and then some Whisper White to 3-1/2" X 9" strips. I punched the white with the Eyelet Border Punch, added the DSP strip to the punched white strip and wrapped them around the bag. I used the "Got Merry?" gingerbread man from "Got Treats" and colored him with markers before stamping on white. I punched that out with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch and die cut the scalloped circle out of Real Red. Everything used here except the Scallop Circle Nestie came from Stampin' Up!

ETA: Project #5
Project #5 is the card I did for the last Sketch Challenge. I posted it here. I know everyone will like doing that one.

That's it for the next stamp camp. Now, all I have to do is cut everything out which I will do tomorrow because I won't be babysitting my grand daughter. You can't get anything like that done when you have a toddler around! Thanks for stopping by!!
