Christmas Stamp Camp

Hello everyone! So sorry for my absence, but as you can see...I have been very busy.

I absolutely love having stamp camps... and what is better than a Christmas Stamp Camp?

I had an awsome group of stampers, actually 3 groups of stampers, from 8:30 till 5:00. Thanks to everyone who attended. Special thanks to my dear sister that prepared the yummy breakfast caserole, and to you gals that helped me gather up the supplies & pack at the end of the day :)

We stamped 8 cards, 2 each of 4 designs. Also, we created 2 dimensional projects, perfect for holiday table favors.

The 1st card was created for Thanksgiving. I cased this idea directly from the Stampin Up! demonstrator web site. It is full of awsome projects created by fellow demonstrators.

Ingredients: CARDSTOCK Baja Breeze (IN COLOR), Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla STAMPS Inspired by Nature, Holidays & Wishes, & Autumn Harvest

INK Chocolate Chip, ACCESSORIES Large Oval Punch NEW, Scallop Circle Punch, & Stampin' Dimensionals

Mr Twigster has arrived!!! Isn't he just the cutest little snowman you have ever seen??? He has great little accessories included in this very affordable stamp set, including a little Charlie Brown tree :)

INGREDIENTS: Cardstock Bashful Blue, Pacific Point (IN COLOR) & Whisper White

STAMPS: Mr Twigster from the new Holiday Mini Catalog, & sentiment from Best Wishes & More, INK: Whisper White (background snowflakes) Black Stazon & markers Real Red, Only Orange, & Regal Rose, Pacific Point, Stampin' Glitter & 2 way glue pen, Pacific Point Striped Grosgrain ribbon, Snowflake from the new BIG SHOT, & gold brad.

The next card was created with the new stamp set, Snow Swirled from the Fall-Winter Idea Book & Catalog (pg 32). Cardstock: Pink Pirouette (IN COLOR), Elegant Eggplant, & Whisper White

Stamp Sets: Snow Swirled & Heard from the Heart, Ink: Versamark with Stampin' Chalks, Elegant Eggplant, Accessories: Rhinestone Brads & new Scallop Punch.
Plus: Anyone interested in this stamp set...the Snow Blossom punch on page 189 fits the snowflakes!!!

I found this little project on Becky Roberts' blog. I made a few changes, and this is the result...

The cutest little treat holder created from a 4 x 6 piece of designer paper. Scored, & folded. We used the Horizontal punch to tie ribbon through the top. The ribbon is from the Holiday Mini catalog, pg. 23, Alpine ribbon Originals. The small snowflake punched with the BIG SHOT, brad in center adheres it to the little treat box. The fun size candies fit inside.

This project was from the Stampin' Success, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator magazine. It is full of great ideas for us to share with you! Mine was created from a 5 x 6 sheet of designer paper. We used sticky strip to adhere & make a tube. Adhesive on each end, & crimped. Campers left one end open to fill with their special treats when they got home. The tag was attached with the Gold Cord from Holiday Mini catalog, Sentiment is from the Best Yet stamp set (Level 1 Hostess), punched with the 1 1/4 square punch, backed with the Scallop Square punch, attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The final card, is the very formal Christian Christmas card featuring the Season of Simple Grace. A beautiful stamp set from the Holiday Mini catalog (pg 16) with the Nativity Shepherds, & 3 Kings.

We learned this technique at the Stampin' Up! Regionals, and & just love it. It is Embossing Resist. We stamped the 3 Kings on Very Vanilla cardstock with Versamark, embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Then sponged Chocolate Chip ink.

Ingredients: Season of Simple Grace stamp set, Cardstock: Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, & Very Vanilla. Designer paper Holiday Treasures (pg 170), Accessories: Large tag punch, 3/4 circle punch, 1/16 punch, Riding Hood Red Grosgrain ribbon.
All supplies used: Stampin' Up!
