possible ideas for January Stamp Camp

Posted by on January 1, 2012 in Greeting Cards | 0 comments

I’m sorry for the long delay in posting. I try to keep my blog “all business” but feel I should at least explain that I have been dealing with the declining health of a family member for the last several months. I’d like to apologize if any emails went unanswered (I know of at least one) and would ask that you please resend any email that I don’t reply to by the next day. I think part of my problem is checking emails on my phone and not marking them as “unread” so I can reply later when I get home. Technology is not always my friend it seems 🙁

Anyhow, I’m back home and took some time yesterday to play with some ideas for my January Stamp Camp:

I really love the “Up, Up & Away” stamp set and thought pink clouds and hills would work for Valentine’s Day 🙂 This is a pretty simple card but I think it’s very sweet with the embossed hills and little red bow.

Stamps: Up, Up & Away
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Real Red
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Whisper White
Accessories: sponges, Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Red 1/8″ Taffeta ribbon, Dimensionals

I’m thinking of adding some glitter to the clouds – seems like a little sparkle is needed 🙂

This card was inspired and cased with a few changes from Mary Fish at http://www.stampinpretty.com/2011/12/i-heart-stampin-up-framelits.html.

Stamps: Filled With Love (retired, greeting will be substituted with something NOT retired!) Ink: Calypso Coral
Paper: Lucky Limeade, Peach Parfait, Pool Party, Very Vanilla, Everyday Enchantment DSP
Accessories: Hearts Framelits, Small Heart punch, Dimensionals, Scallop Heart Border punch, Paper-Piercing Tool and Mat Pack, Everyday Enchantment Ribbon and Brad, Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Elegant Lines Embossing Folder

This card was inspired and cased with a few changes from Elizabeth Hurst at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2109627.

Stamps: Tea Shoppe
Ink: Pool Party, Island Indigo
Paper: Pool Party, Island Indigo, Whisper White
Accessories: White Organza ribbon, Finial Press Embossing Folder, Labels Framelits, Dimensionals, Pearls

Hope you all are enjoying the first day of 2012 – wishing you a happy and healthy New Year!

Brenda 🙂
