Stamp Camp Recap

What a great time we had on Saturday! We had lots of giveaways, food and of course stamping!  We’re already planning on doing a spring camp.

Each attendee made a set of 5 Christmas tags, Fall Wine Bottle Tag (great for a hostess gift), Christmas Card & Candy Wrapper box, Fall Sour Cream Treat Holder, Halloween Treat Sticks, Witches Treat Hat, Halloween Easel Card, Turkey Poop Treat, Turkey Chocolate Treat Gift.  You still have a chance to make these for yourself… details below.

 Stamp Camp Projects

Holiday Stamp Camp 2011

Here are closer pics of the projects courtesy of my fellow demo friend Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Design.

This tag slips over a bottle of wine. Perfect for a hostess gift.

Super cute as a place card for Thanksgiving.

Another cute treat for Thanksgiving.

Gorgeous embossed card and candy wrapper.

I contributed these projects to the stamp camp therefore the more detailed pics. The witch hat treat box would be great for a dinner party place card. The easel card is perfect for a Halloween invitation or greeting.

Easy Halloween Treats!

Cute Christmas Tags! You can't have too many.

If the Shoe Fits…Wear it for Halloween

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is Halloween!  I love this holiday and this year Stampin’ Up! has some very fun and spooky stamp sets.  Check them out in the holiday mini.

Since I love shaped cards I made a template of a witch’s boot.  I based it on the boot in the Spooky Bingo Bits  stamp set.  See card recipe below for template. I cut the boot out then embossed it with the Spider Web Embossing Folder then Smooched it.  I laced it up with Lucky Limeade ribbon and embellished with a fan fold.  I then  stamped the head of the witch in the Howl-O-Ween Creeps set on watercolor paper, with a blender pen I colored it with Pumpkin Pie and Lucky Limeade classic ink then used the Dazzling Details to add some sparkle.  Finished off the boot with Black Satin ribbon, taffeta orange ribbon and Rich Razzleberry button.

Witch in a Dresser and did I mention Fort Worth Regional

When I saw this card on Patti Lee’s blog I had to CASE it.  The template for this side step dresser card comes from Jackie Topa.  Click here for Jackie’s tutorial video for how to create this type of card.  I used the same colors and Wicked Cool stamp set Patti used.  Since I do not own the Curly Label punch I used the Tab punch instead and black Glimmer Brads I received at the Fort Worth regional.

Which leads me to mention I attended Stampin’ Up’s! Fort Worth Regional this past  Saturday.  It was a lot fun, informative and Shelli Gardner provided  inspiration.  We all need from time to time a reminder of what we need to be doing to achieve our goals.  There were some very talented demonstrators and SU home office staff present awesome projects and techniques.  This was my first SU event and loved it.  I was hoping to trade some of my Witch Halloween cards before the session started but due to a freeway closing did not arrive to the convention center early enough.  However I was able to trade throughout the session.  I will post  the cards I received in the next few days.  All I can say is the Fort Worth regional left me wanting more which is why I have made it a goal to go to convention.  If you’re a demonstrator and have not attended an SU event consider doing so.  You’ll be glad you did.  Now onto my card.

By the way I have also submitted my card to PPA60 Halloween Inspiration Challenge.  They have some great cards posted by the design team.
