Summer Card Camp 2011














Hi everyone! I hope you guys are looking forward to this weekend...the 4th of July!!! Yippeee...I am off of work on Monday...more time to play !!


I WON this AWESOME Summer Card Camp !! There were 3 of us that won out of hundreds!! I was so excited I just jumped up and down! So many card ideas, videos, and color combinations all wrapped up in this fabulous Summer Card Camp!!! I was going to join, but received an email that I had won a free spot...Aren't I the lucky one? Yeah!!


Anyhoo, on to my card...I have never tried this technique before, but I thought it was time. I just recieved this new stamp set from Paper Trey Ink...for FREE...called "Botanical Silhouettes." It is a Special Edition 4th Anniversary set. I was so excited when I got this in the mail...and my goodness it can be used for every imaginable kind of card. I used Versamark Ink and stamped the stems and flowers. Then I used white embossing powder, which I heat embossed. I then took these inks: PTI Rasberry Fizz, Momento Bahama Blue, Lulu Lavender, and Tangelo and began using a sponge dauber in each corner just going in round circles. Okay, I have to admit, I did have to try this technique a few times before I felt like it really looked good...but I do think it turned out great. I did take some text white metallic paper from Paper and More and I scored with my Scor-Pal above and under the sentiment (although you cannot see it in the picture) it does show up on the card IRL...I then placed rhinestones all over the flowers, the bow (which is also Rasberry Fizz from PTI) and below the sentiment, which also came with the "Botanical Silhouettes." I used dimensionals to pop the image up...and whalha!!


I have more coming, as this class lasts all month long...I have so enjoyed this weeks videos (they are some of the best videos I have ever seen)!! The card ideas are fabulous and oh on the color combos...THANKS to Jennifer McGuire, Kristina Werner and Friends!!!


Have a Very Happy 4th of July to all ! Be Safe and Thank You for Stopping By!!

Hi Velta ... thanks for the sweet comments on my blog regarding the MTME templates and files. I could not find an e/m addy for you on your blog, so I'm replying here. Yes, the Blossoming into spring is a cut file and I cut it with my Cricut using the SCAL software. There is a tutorial on the MTME blog to help you get started! It's really easy!! Please let Lauren know that I sent you over to her shop! Big hugs, Debbie (Simple Treasures)
