Owl Punch Stamp Camp Tulip Card

This week I held a stamp camp featuring the Owl Punch.  I've done many punch stamp camps before, but this was the first time I focused on one punch.  By the number of RSVPs, it was obvious this was a winning idea!  All of my guests were asked to bring the owl punch with them – this really helped with the flow of the stamp camp.  Usually, my campers wander from station to station.  This time, everyone took a seat and stayed there for the evening.

Today I am sharing the first card – a tulip card.  This was the easiest card of the bunch!

Don't you love how the leaves were made from the owl punch too?

Ears to You Easter Z Fold Card

Did you know that the single stamps from this winter will be available through July 31st?  The stamp I had to have from this collection was Ears to You.  I just love those little bunnies!  Here is one of the cards my customers created this month:

 

Easter Card Ears to You

 

This is a Z Fold Card.  The cloud embossing folder was used on scrap pieces and then sponged over and cut out.  The grass is just some sponging.  Sorry, the color is not as vibrant as it is in person.

I hope you have a Blessed Easter!

Up, Up, and Away!

Welcome!  This weekend I am featuring two items from the Occasions Mini Catalog – the Create a Cupcake stamp set and the Build a Cupcake Punch!  I have made many cupcake projects with these two items – but I love creating out-of-the-box samples!  Here are two items I showcased at a workshop I did last night – a birthday card and a 6 x 6 scrapbook page.

Create a Cupcake Hot Air Balloon Card

Create a Cupcake Hot Air Balloon Scrapbook Page

To make the hot air balloon, I used Real Red textured cardstock, So Saffron cardstock, hemp, crimper, Build a Cupcake punch, 1-3/8" circle punch, Small Heart punch, crimper, and Stampin' Dimensionals.  Be sure to place the Stampin' Dimensionals on top of the hemp – it helps secure them!  The "clouds" are made from the frosting section of the Build a Cupcake punch and sponged with Marina Mist ink.  On the scrapbook page, I distress the edges of the photo section with our distressing tool.

Lovely as a Tree Direct to Paper Technique

When I created yesterday's card, I wanted to give a spookier feel to the trees, so I used the direct to paper technique for this card.  You can add as little or as much ink to the background as you desire!

This is a simple card – but don't you just love that Top Note die!
