Stamp Camp cards
Stamp Camp on Saturday!! Had a wonderful day of stamping and connecting with other stampers!! We created a variety of projects. A One Sheet Wonder technique in the morning using a 12x12 sheet of designer paper - Oh chocolat!. We cut our paper (template provided ) and then stamped and coloured our images (shimmer cardstock). We had supplies to create 16 cards which was all precut. I did not manage to finish my cards in the 3 hours provided but managed to fully assemble 3 and parts of others. I finished them up this morning and here is a sample of the 5 desgns. We had a variety of colours - pink , blue and green - in each design. We learned to tie our ribbon in double knots using both ends of a length ribbon. Then to cut the two sides to the right length to fit our needs. This makes tying knots easier, eliminates sloppy ribbons on card fronts and conserves ribbon!!
We had our lunch outside in the sun and headed back in for an afternoon of fun!!
