Summer Card Camp: Week 1

Posted by on June 30, 2011 in Challenges, Summer Card Camp | 19 comments

Hi everyone.

I thought that the Online Summer Card Camp with Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner sounded like a fun idea, so I signed up. I am always keen to see and learn new techniques and tricks. Week 1 has the following colour combination.

I find colour challenges the hardest as I don’t like to be limited to a set amount of colours, but alas I have produced something! And what is even more exciting is that I am using my new Jane’s Doodles Garden Friends stamp set which arrived at my door this week. I have always been a fan of Jane’s cute little digital images…and now I have heaps of cute stamps to play with…oh, and I am the biggest fan of her buttons too!

Anyway onto my card.

A close up of the flowers which I raised up to give the card some dimension.


Stamps: Jane’s Doodles ‘Garden Friends’ stamp set, Kaisercraft ‘Butterflies’ mini clear stamp set (bee trail), Hero Arts ‘Playful lowercase’ letters (LL764) , Hero Arts Envelope Pattern Woodblock stamp (S5507)
Ink: Versafine Ink – Onyx Black, Memento – Tuxedo Black, Distress inks – Broken China, Dried Marigold, Verscolor cubes – Opera Pink, Peony, Orange
Card: Regal Craft Card (white textured DL single fold), White card
Other Supplies: Foam dimensionals, Basic Grey Button – orange, Copic Marker- orange, black felt pen, WRMK Corner chomper, kitchen twine, Fiskars scallop border punch, blending tool, Uniball Signo white gel pen

Thanks for stopping by and why not click on over to Jill Foster’s blog as I am the featured artist this week!
