Just Saying...

I am sad that summer card camp is done. It was a great because it gave me new techniques to try and new color combos to explore. I am sure I will be revisiting the classes frequently. 

The above card was for a class I was hoping to teach. Summer is a hard time to get students to sit in a class, when they can be outside enjoying the weather.

I will share it with you. I use 2 Hero Arts background stamps that seem to match each other. I used my fav color combo, blues and browns. Add a border strip, a flower, a saying and you are done.

Stay cool everyone!

Card Camp Week 4 Last Week :(

I know I told you I wouldn't be able to make a card, but I found myself with today off and yeah! I got up to my 99 degree studio and made this card for the last week of card camp.  The  pear green, teal, turquoise, sky blue and white  colors will cool you down just looking at them.


I tried to use various techniques and ideas from the last 4 weeks. I love the clean simple design of this card. Plus it uses my new stamp set- Little Bitty Bird from PTI. I am a sucker for any bird stamps.

I hope you enjoy this card.

Spooky House

I took a class from Michelle Zindorf the Queen of the brayer. I had a great time and learned some amazing things from Michelle. 

Using many of the techniques from Michelle's class I made this Halloween card with the new Memory Box stamps. For a first attempt on my own, I don't think it is too shabby, well maybe shabby chic?!!

If you go to Outside the Box Memory Box's blog I have a tutorial on how I made this card.

Leave a comment on either site and let me know what you think.

Card Camp Week 3

This is probably the last card camp contribution I will be able to do. I go back to work tomorrow and I won't have the time to play. It sure has been fun. I loved this week's color combos. I have been messing around with this card in other combo's but the reds and browns just really worked.

Hope you all enjoy it too!

Clean and Simple

Well, I have been doing my homework from summer camp and made this thank you card after watching Kristina do this weeks's video on card design. Of course I had to throw in a few birds from the new PTI stamp set I just got. I like this card because it has a variety of papers without all the fussy layers. I wanted to keep this card but did give it to my friend Pat for her generous birthday present.

Hope you enjoy it.
