Stamping Cat Crew 2017 Fall Stamp Camp

Stamping Cat Crew 2017 Fall Stamp Camp

Stamping Cat Crew 2017 Fall Stamp Camp

We had a great Stamping Cat Crew 2017 Fall Stamp Camp this year!  Lots of new faces, many met at the Evergreen State Fair this year!  Yay!

 

The displays were lovely, full of all kinds of samples from the current 2017 holiday catalog and regular catalog.  In the fall we try to have a full fall & Halloween idea display table and a full Christmas idea display table.  

Every year we include a table of all the current all inclusive kits available.  This year we had some new additions, like the Love Today Planner kit and the Soft Sayings card kit.

We had some demonstrators who taught for the first time this year, they did a fabulous job!  And the feedback I have had from my crafty friends has been all positive!  So looking forward to continuing in our new venue!  It was simply perfect!

Stampin' Up! Artistically Asian Sponged card

This Stampin’ Up! Artistically Asian Sponged card was so fun! I love the look of sponging, and using the Timeless Textures stamp is a perfect “water look” for the base of this card . This weeks color challenge used Pacific Point, Marina Mist, Soft Sky, Real Red and Basic Black.

I started with an A2 card base cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″.  The Real Red layer is 5.25″ x 4″.  And the White sponged layer is 4 1/8″ x 3 7/8″.  The video shows the details on how to do the stamping off and the sponging technique.  Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest card

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest card

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest card

Have to love the simplicity of this Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest card, stamping only anyone?  This card has been so popular on my YouTube channel, and I suspect it’s because of the ease of the design.

I created this card for one of our weekly color challenges and even though I had seen many cards made with the traditional sunflower colors I hadn’t seen any brightness.  Not to say it wasn’t out there… lol … I just knew I wanted color!

I started with an A2 base in Crumb Cake cardstock cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold at 4.25″.  The stamped  Very Vanilla layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  After that all that’s left is stamping.  I will say I did quite a bit of “stamping off” before stamping on the final layer.  That way I could create depth of color with the same inks.  Remember to make your envelopes pretty!
