#849 – Stamp Camp Photos – October 21, 2019

Your Stamp Camp Team!!!  It truly takes a village to make Stamp Camp happen and we are very blessed to have a great group of ladies who are hard workers!!!


Thank you to everyone who came out to our Holiday Stamp Camp last Sat., 10/19 in Huntley.  We had a full house and lots of creativity happening under one roof!!!


Fun scenic card using the foam brayers.  Card was inspired by a swap card received from Christine Bertram.


3-D Project shared by Lisa Lange.  Love the gold foil pizza boxes (p. 13 – Holiday Catalog).
She used the Perfectly Plaid bundle (pp. 12 – 14 – Holiday Catalog).


Here is another make and take using the Perfectly Plaid Bundle created by Lori Marcantonio.


Three make and takes all using the Perfectly Plaid bundle and they are all beautifully unique!  This card was inspired by a swap card I received from Karin Braxton.  Love the Hammered Metal embossing folder, especially when it is used with foil paper.


This make and take uses Frosted Foliage bundle with Frosted Frames dies. (pp. 40 – 42 in the Holiday Catalog).  LOVE the dies and the “Feels Like Frost” DSP. The new in-color, Seaside Spray, is simply stunning!!!  This card was inspired by a swap card I received from Natalie Travis.


Here is another lovely make and take created by Lisa Lange.  It also uses the Feels Like Frost DSP.  It looks like a photograph.  Such a fun idea to stamp a greeting direct onto the DSP.


This make and take was inspired by a beautiful card shared by Patty Bennett.  I love the color combination of Pretty Peacock and Terra Cotta Tile.  We colored the rhinestones using the Pretty Peacock Blends.  A great way to personalize your embellishments to match your projects.


Love the elegant detail of this ice skate card.  It was inspired by a swap card I received from Carol Payne.  It uses the Free Skate Bundle (p. 44 in the Holiday Catalog). It also uses the Seaside Spray in-color.  The silver foil accents make this card shine!!!


Christmas Time is Here is a NEW suite that will be available in November!  LOVE the gold foil accents in the DSP and the gold glimmer ribbon!  Swoon!


Who doesn’t LOVE a penguin???  He is so dapper looking!  This is one of the make and takes shared by Lori Marcantonio.  She was inspired by a swap card she received from Cindy Pietrowski.  It uses the Playful Penguins set (p. 23 in the Holiday Catalog).  She used the Buffalo Check background stamp as an accent.  Stylin’!


Perfect holiday card to tuck in a gift card to a favorite coffee shop! LOVE this bundle, Cup of Christmas (p. 34 in the Holiday Catalog). Lori Marcantonio prepared this make and take that was inspired by a card prepared by Brian King.


Last make and take for camp was created by Lisa Lange.  It uses the Boo to You stamp set. (p. 57 in the Holiday Catalog).  LOVE the googlie eyes!!!

Lots of smiling, happy faces!!!


Love Bethany’s shirt!!!

Hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful fall weekend!  Thanks to Paul’s hard work, we got our pool closed.

It is part of the transition of the season, as we move into fall.


We also emptied out the rest of the garden and found a few more carrots!

This is how I feel about winter…I want to hibernate and wake up to spring!
