March Stamp Camp Samples

Last weekend I hosted my quarterly stamp camp. Over the next few days I will post all 12 samples of the projects we made. So keep checking back.

During the camp we used the Big Shot a lot. We used all sorts of different types of dies, texture plates etc. This first card was done with the new 3-D Pop-Up Cake Die. It became available for order on April 1st. This die includes cake "toppers" of candles and/or bride & groom. You get to choose what goes on top. In this case we went with a simple birthday card and the pop up cake on the inside provided the "wow" factor.

We also used the Sizzlet SU Big Bold Birthday dies for the cupcake on the front. The base of the cupcake is crimped to imitate the cupcake papers. In addition we used Candy Lane Designer Paper, Fine Supernova Glitter, Pretty in Pink ink and Ribbon, and the New Oval Scallop Punch that came out in the Occasions Mini catalog layered onto the the large Oval Punch. LOVE this new punch, it is a must have!!



This next project is one that I cased from Cambria Turnbow's blog. It's a purse made with the Carousel Notes. The inside is a bag-a-lope made with the Chocolate envelopes that come with the notes. I adore these envelopes. So much so that I don't use them. Hmmm, I think I have a problem :) The other items used here are Jumbo Eyelets, Chocolate Chip Ribbons, Petal Pizzazz Stamp Set, Chocolate Corduroy Buttons, and Morning Sunshine Designer Paper.



The last project for today is using the Fifth Avenue Floral set. This is not a set I loved at first, but it has grown on me. Don't be surprised to see me use it again soon. The colors used here aer Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery & Chocolate Chip. The chocolate flowers in the background also have some Dazzling Diamonds in the centers. The ribbon is from the Valet Ribbon Originals. I used the new 5/16" Neutral brads along with the Oval Punch. The oval is popped up on Dimensionals, and sponged around the edges. This photo doesn't do this card justice, it's actually very pretty in person. I think I need to buy stronger bulbs for my photo box.



That's it for today. Come back tomorrow for 3 more samples.

Fabulous projects!! I love your bag, probably because that DSP is my fav right now. The cupcakes are very cute, too. I love the color combo on the floral card.

These are fantastic!! Is the pop-up die difficult to use/assemble? Love the bag, too. I wasn't quite sure what I'd do with those big scallops, but your bag is totally darling!
