In case you all thought I'd died....................

Thought I'd better post some pictures of the cards I made at Stamp Camp (a few weeks ago now). For once I spent a lot less time chatting and actually got heaps done. Thanks Venessa, Liz and Lisa for sharing your room, your chocolate and lots of laughs with me. There was a picture of us at the pyjama party but I don't think that needs to be posted here - bit frightening!

So here are the cards I made.......

We were given a bag of papers, ribbons and other embellishments which we could make cards with. I ended up making two.....

This one which uses some of the DS paper we were given which I made a little pin wheel flower out of.

And this one where I used the Fishy Friends stamps. It was a challenge to me to use these bright colours as I usually use more muted colours.

Then I had some cards to make for an online swap and got 10 of these made up. Using the River Rock Cardstock, Le Jardin double sided papers, a piece of the River Rock ribbon and my paper piercer to make the holes for some faux stitching. Then I used the Carte Postale stamp set to stamp on the patterned papers and the sentiment which I mounted up using the oval punch.

Then we made some bags from the brown paper packing which is used for the Stampin' Up! orders. I think this was demoed at the Stampin' Up! convention but being as I didn't go, some of the girls that did go were kind enough to show us how to make them up - very easy. I decorated mine using the En Francais background stamp with the flower from Heartfelt Thanks.

And finally, for this post anyway, I made a set of cards using the wax crayon technique with the Palette of Prints papers and Life Definitions stamp set. One of the girls at camp had written up the measurements for the card folder so I had to try it out - didn't I? Used the Petal Prints stamps for this set.
