This is my favorite of the three cards for this months Stamp Camp. I do not use Sahara Sand much, but it was the perfect color for this card. Once I got out my Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die and played with it, I realized it didn't cut out all the hexagons. So I went out to see what others were doing with this die. When I found a card that had polka dot DSP with the coordination card stock, I fell in love. I will get the link for this card and post it here tomorrow. After completing the front, I decided that I would use my cut out pieces on the inside of the card. I am very happy with the way it turned out.

I love stamp sets that have stamps that add interesting background stamps. Happy Watercolor not only has cool dots, splotches, but beautiful flowers. I want to do this card again using the Monster Maniacs instead of the flower, I think this background will go great with that set. I have it coming in soon, so watch for that post. I also learned that to get a really good two tone on the splotch the new ink pads work better. The grid and dots are stamped off first, so give a softer image. I stamped the flower in Gumball Green and Midnight Muse using the ink pads, stamping the flower twice. I gave the outside flower time to dry before I water colored it in using the Aqua painter. I ruffled the ribbon and attached it to sticky strip, then added Stampin' Dimensionals, double layered on the other side. On the inside of the card I chose not to stamp off with the grid stamp.

Jenifer Hill- Underwood and I designed this card for my upcoming February stamp camp. I was determined to use the Label Pop 'n Cuts on the inside and the my helper Jeni wanted to use the DSP you can get Free during Sale-a-bration. Jeni wanted the black pattern used on the dress (don't you love the Pistachio trim on the bottom of the dress?) I choose the Crisp Cantaloupe pattern on the inside. Jeni is a seamstress so she wanted to use the Dress Up Framelits . So We used the Dress Up Framelits on the front and the Label Pop 'n Cuts on the inside. We also used the Your Lovely stamp set also from the Sale-a-bration brochure. Although designing the card was a bit of a challenge, I am quite please with how it turned out.
Here is the inside showing the Card Base and Label Pop 'n' Cuts Die. If you look closely you can see the Modern Mosaic embossing behind the stamped image.
