August Stamp Camp - Part Two

Happy Saturday my Blogger Friends - today is Stamp Club day - so I'll try to make this post quick.....
Today I'll be sharing the second part of Stamp Camp (this last Wednesday) with you so let's get right to it....
This first card we created was from a card I spotted on somebodies blog (sorry I can't remember who's) and knew that it would be the perfect Camp card to make.  The base of our card was from the BigZ Clear Scallop Square die.....and the candles were made from Pocketful of Posies DSP and we just trimmed each of them at different lengths to create some WOW to this card.
The candles were free-hand and inked with More Mustard ink .......
And a fun little "Happy Birthday" message was stamped on a Rich RazzleBerry stripe that was tied off with a tiny piece of 1/4" White Grosgrain ribbon. 
This next card was created by Chera Wiest at http://greetingsbychera.blogspot.com/. Chera created this fun little recipe and it was the perfect card to add to the cards my girls would be making at our August Stamp Camp.  This card was created with the two circle punches - the scallop circle punch and the Boho Blossom punch - super easy and one of those cards that you can create your own masterpiece by just changing up the color combination.
We used the "Just Believe" stamp set to stamp the background of our scallop circle punch and stamped the "friends" onto Whisper White and punched it out using the Small Oval punch.  The total wow factor on this card (and the piece that pulls this whole card together) is the Crumb Cake 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon that is wrapped around the crumb cake base piece of our card.  I have to say that Stampin' UP! hit this one out of the park when they began offering Seam Binding Ribbon in the new Idea Book and Catalog.  I swear - there is NO OTHER Seam Binding that compares to that which SU offers....LOVE ALL THE COLORS!

Thanks for stopping in today - I'm off to teach Stamp Club today and will be ready to share those creations with you tomorrow.  Hope you can come back and join me.......Until Sunday....Keep Living Your Dream!
