August Stamp Camp Cards - Part One

Happy Friday my Blogger Friends!  Today, I'll be shaing three of the cards that we made at Stamp Camp  this past Wednesday.  The ladies made a total of five cards and today I will be shaing three of those cards with you - Let's get stated:
The first card we made was from a card Connie Babbat shared on her blog http://inkspiredtreasures.com/
Connie created this card from a traditional card recipe and without a doubt - when I saw what she created - well, I just knew this would be an amazing card for my Camp ladies to make.
We used the "On the Grow" stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalog - along with some yummy yummy Daffodil Delight 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon to create this fabulous card.  Our Stampin Write markers added that little touch of color and shading to our stamped image - Totally fun little card (don't you think?)!
Next up is a card shared on my friend Mary Fish blog (http://stampinpretty.blogspot.com/).  When Mary posted this card - I quickly emailed her and asked if I could CASE her card for my upcoming Stamp Camp.  She was thrilled to be asked.  This card uses the awesome stamp set "Button Buddies" along with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack to create the flowers.
We stamped and embossed our Button Buddies Vase and then popped it up on our Whisper White framed panel.  We embossed the Daffodil Delight/Real Red and Pacific Point cardstock with clear embossing powder and then punched out a Itty Bitty Flower Shapes to crerate our flowers.  We then added one of each punched flower shape to the top of our stamped flower stems (adhered with a mini glue dot) and popped a tiny pearl in the center of each flower to give it that little something something that each of the flowers were needing.  Totally LOVE how this card turned out - and Thanks Mary for your rockin great card recipe.
The last card I'll be sharing today is a fun little sassy 3"x3" card that I created.  With the amazing Cupcake Builder punch this fun little gift card was created in a heartbeat.  We crimped the cupcake base with our trusty paper crimper - embossed some chocolate chip cardstock with the "Dot Dot Dot" stamp set in white embossing powder (that created the white dots all over the cake portion of our cupcake).
Here's a close-up of our cupcake which we stacked on top of the smallest BigZ scallop square die.  We added two little pieces of 1/4" Real Red Grosgrain ribbon to each side of our square and our DSP is from the Big Top Birthday collection.  Our "happy birthday" message was created using the Modern Label and Word Window punch.  Does this little card not look fabulous - and oh how it will pretty up any birthday gift.

Thanks for stopping in today - Hope you have some fun plans in store for today.  I have Stamp Club planned for tomorrow afternoon - so I'm off to put the finishing touches on that.  Keep Living Your Dream!
