Toxic Doily for Halloween
This is one of the projects for my September Stamp Camp. I don't know why, but I love Halloween cards and projects. This one turned out fabulous. I saw where Susy Cote, another Stampin' Up! demonstrator had used the Doily with this stamp and I loved it. She had done a side step card. I would love to show you her card, but I could only find it published on a Stampin' Up! demonstrator only gallery. Thank you Susy for the wonderful idea.

I decided to do the standard A2, invitation size, card, and shabby chic the designer paper. I hope you enjoy it. If you are in the Summerville, Charleston area of South Carolina area and want to join us, please let me know. The dates and information on the class is on my calendar.

Blue Ribbon Card for my Husband
This is the card I made for my husband, Joe, for his birthday last week. I love the Square Lattice embossing folder for Masculine cards. I was in a hurry, so I had to make something fast, and if you know me, I don't do fast well. I still wanted it to be great, so I am happy with the way this turned out. I glued the Raspberry Ripple, and Crumb Cake to the Midnight Muse before I ran it through the Big Shot to emboss. I love the way it makes it look like a patterned card stock, instead of layers I have glued on. The Blue Ribbon is popped and the red panel is also popped. I had to use the Midnight Muse ribbon (after all it is a blue ribbon, right?). Since it was getting lost on the Midnight Muse paper, I simply added some Crumb Cake Seam Binding ribbon behind it.

Stampin' Supplies: ( All supplies Stampin' Up!)
Stamps: Blue Ribbon
Ink: Raspberry Ripple and Midnight Muse
Paper: Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla.
Accessories: Big Shot die cut machine. Square Lattice Textured Impressions embossing folder, 2 3/8" Scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, Midnight Muse 3/8" Satin Stitched ribbon, Crumb Cake  1/2" Seam Binding ribbon and Stampin' Dimensionals

Thank you for stopping by, Check back again next week as I will be posting the September stamp camp projects.

Bordering on Romance Anniversary card
This is the card I gave my husband on our Anniversary earlier this week. Silly me, I didn't realise the sentiment was not straight until I looked at the scan. Oh well, he still like it, after all he knows I am slightly off also. I saw this card and knew it was the one I wanted to make (with a few modification, of course). I took my color coach to my husband and asked him to pick one color for his card, anything but a brown or green, since the color he picked would be the color of the flower on his card. He picked Rose Red. I changed the card from square to the standard A2 invitation size, changed the sentiment, added pearls to all three flowers, used smaller pearls as the accents. I also changed the embossing folder. Since I was using Rose Red instead of the pink she used, I changed my secondary color from Crumb Cake to River Rock. I size larger of the Framelit Labels Collection Dies. If I made it again, I would go with the smaller.

All supplies are Stampin' Up.
Stamps: Bordering on Romance, Petite Pairs and Memorable Moments (for the Happy Anniversary on the inside)
Inks: Rose Red, Always Artichoke and Black StazOn
Paper: Rose Red, River Rock and Very Vanilla
Accessories: Big Shot die cutting machine, Labels Collection Framelits dies, Adorning Accents Edgelits die, The following Textured Impressions Embossing Folders: Designer Frames, Perfect Polka Dots and Fancy Fan. Extra Large Oval punch, Very Vanilla 1/2" seam binding ribbon, Jewels Basic Pearls, Stampin' Dimensionals and Aqua Painter.

Postage Due in Rich Razzleberry
Here is another card for this months stamp camp. I loved this stamp set as soon as I saw in the the Idea Book and catalog. I love postage stamps, and the Eiffel Tower, so this was right up my alley.

My inspiration for this came from Kellichan, you can see her card at  ( card will travel). I removed the sentiment and twine, added the netting stamp and die cut with the Labels Framlit. 

The collage stamp in this set is fabulous. You can stamp it all one color, or with markers color it like I have done in this sample. Cut it out with the Labels Framelits. Then sponge and crinkle, pop the postage stamps, add a bit of ribbon, an antique brad and you have this beautiful card. This scan doesn't show it very well but if you look close you can see I have stamped tone on tone the Netting stamp on the Razzleberry card front.

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Postage Due and Netting background.
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso and Old Olive Classic Inks and Stampin' Write markers.
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.
Accessories: Labels Framlits Collection, Big Shot die cutting machine, Early Espresso Taffeta ribbon, Antique brads, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Glue dots, Stampin' Sponges

Gently Falling with En Francais
This is the second card for this months stamp camp. I don't know why the scan is so blurry.

I cased Tami C's card ( swap 1). but made the following changes. I used the new Woodgrain embossing folder.  I didn't have a Rich Razzleberry button, I used the small Vintage Faceted button and punched a 1/2" circle of Rich Razzleberry card stock. I attached the paper on the back of the button using Crystal Effects. I also used the bakers twine instead of the Linen Thread. Thank you Tami for the wonderful card.

This card uses the the Core'dinations card stock available in the Holiday catalog.

The Core'dinations paper was embossed using the new Woodgrain Textured Impressions embossing folder, also available in the Holiday catalog. After embossing, I lightly sanded the paper, leaving the wonderful panel used on this card.

I love the leaf with the script showing in the leaf. This effect is created by Stamping the Scrip in Early Espresso, then Stamp the leaf with the VersaMark ink pad and embossed with clear embossing powder. When cool, using a sponge dauber, ink over the leaf, darker close to the leaf and getting lighter as you get near the edges. When inking is complete, use a napkin or paper towel and wipe the ink off of the leaf.

To crinkle the ribbon, on the edge, pull a tread gently out of the center on both ends. the part under the leaf panel does not need to be crinkled, so you only crinkle a small portion on each side.

I didn't have a cherry cobbler button, so I created on using a 1/2" circle punch and a small Vintage Faceted button. I attached the paper on the back of the button using Crystal Effects.

All supplies Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Gently Falling, En Francais background stamp
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake classic ink, VersaMark
Paper: Rose Red, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla card stock. Early Espresso Core'dinations card stock (Holiday catalog)
Accessories: Big Shot Die cutting machine, Woodgrain Textured Impressions embossing folder (Holiday catalog), Rose Red Seam binding ribbon, Crystal Effects, 1/2" circle punch, Early Espresso Bakers Twine, Designer Sanding Block, Sponge dauber
