July Stamp Camp- Samples #2

Decor Element Project- I wanted to include the new Decor Elements Line in the stamp camp. I couldn't very well have everyone apply one to their walls- that would be impractical and cost prohibitive without a camp fee increase. So, I ordered everyone the Monogram that coordinated with their last name. Then they got to make these Chipboard Clipboards. Depending on the size of their letters, they could choose to make a vertical or horizontal clipboard. Then everyone had the supplies to embellish with stars or flowers randomly included in their binders. Here are the two samples I provided for them. The chipboard is the Book Basics size small from the SU catalog and the clips are binder clips that have been covered and embellished.
This is one of my personal favorite cards. Not colors I normally use, but are growing on me. The heart is from the Sticky Letters and has Green Bead Duos on it. I sprinkled the heart with the larger beads and then added the matching micro beads to fill it in. The flower on the heart is a Felt Fusion Flower with a Brilliant Blue Brad in it.
Andrea Walford posted a tutorial for glittering glue dots. I remembered this technique from years ago and was glad to be reminded of it. I thought her card layout was cute so I cased that, but the colors and images are different. Colors used are Almost Amethyst, Ballet Blue, and Lavender Lace. The bird is watercolored with Aquapainters & Watercolor Crayons. The flower has a Barely Banana Brad in it.
I received a picture of one of these bag boxes on one of the Yahoo groups I belong to. They were so cute I had to make one immediately! This is my take on it. We used some Ribbon Originals, Porcelain Prints Paper, River Rock Double Stitch Ribbon and LOTS of Pretties Kit items. I really like how it turned out.
Check back tomorrow for the last 4 stamp camp samples. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to send me your questions if you have any.
