Snow Frame

Here is what I worked on today to show for my next Stamp Camp. This will be the 3rd time for this Stamp Camp. (it's always requested) So for something different for the girls who have done this before I suggested using a theme for the frames. This is part of my 5 months of Christmas Stamp Camps. I am showing them to my Card Nite girls this week. I used one of them MANY frames like this one that my Grandma gave me when she down sized to move to Florida.

Blue Blossoms

Got some Ski Slope DSP in and the En Francais BG and just thought they would look good together. After playing around with some ideas, this is what I came up with. I wanted to use the stamp from Eastern Blooms, but after stamping it with the craft white it did not show very well and I had no white embossing powder. So I did the next best thing, I used some rub-ons from the Hidden Garden. I ended up using 3 altogether! I also stamped and cut out some flowers and used dimensionals to put them on. Next I folded down and crumpled the corner and used some hemp to tie it all together. I also roughened up the top with my fingernail. Sorry the picture doesn't do it justice here. Looks alot better in person.

More Bella Cards

Alright, here are some more of the bella rose cards I was working on. On the first one I cut out a rose and used a stampin' dimensional to have it stand out a bit. I just wasn't satisfied with how that looked so I cut out another rose and laid it along the strip and added a square on the bottom where I bent the end up. With bending the end up I crumpled it and added a button.
Out of the two, I like the second one better. What do you think? Let me know. Sorry the pictures are so blurry, not quite sure what I am doing wrong. The last few pictures have been like this.

STAMPS: Wonderful Words
INK: Basic Black

Summer Fun

Here is a quick little 12x12 I did for a Girl Scout group. We titled it "Summer Fun" and the girls all brought summer pictures to put on it. I had just gotten my Scallop Edge punch the day before so I did not have time to break it in for them, but they loved it all the same. They are planning on having me come back and do one in the winter for a mother/daughter scrap day.

Along with the normal benefits of the club they also get to do a technique class every month. I actually haven't done this technique in a while and forgot how much I like the look. I really like this set too (wished I would of gotten Seaside Sketches also). Hope you enjoy!

Thinking of You Bella Rose

Finally!!! After about 3 tries today it worked! I challenged myself with this card (and a few others) with some limited supplies. I ended up cutting out an extra rose (top left) and adhering it with a stampin' dimensional because I thought it was a little too empty. I really liked how this came out. Hope you do too. I'll post some others later.

Ok girls, I haven't been ignoring you or anything. I've just have had problems posting my pictures on here for the past few days. I will give it one more go tomorrow as I am getting frustrated with this enough for today (let alone yesterday)!!! Hopefully it will work or I may throw my computer out the window. Please come back by later.
