Today, I will be sharing my November Stamp Camp cards that we made last Wednesday.  I offered Camp in two sessions.....both sessions filled up to capacity within a couple hours and I had to start a waiting list because I was limited to the number of Camp Ladies that could join.  
What a BLAST we had and the only thing we did differently this go around.......The ladies stayed put and I ran the card buckets around from table to table.  Seems ALL the ladies like that arrangement so much better - they not only felt LESS PRESSURE....but also they were able to visit and re-connect with their stamping budies.  I for one was SO GLAD the new format was a success. 
First card up was a card that my friend Mary Fish shared with her bloggin friends - and was the perfect card to show my Camp Ladies how to use up both Holiday DSP and everyday DSP to create some pretty amazing Christmas Trees.  Our "Season Greetings" sentiment was from the Curly Cute Stamp Set (P.168).
We used the Holly Berry Bouquet DSP (P20-Mini) along with Wild Wasabi cardstock to create our Christmas Trees.  We also added Early Espresso cardstock for the base of our trees and added the Itty Bitty Punch Pack (P210) Flower punched out in Early Espresso to the tops of our trees.
We punched out "Merry" using the Jewelry Tag Punch (P.210) and added a little piece of Seam Binding for the bow.  The center tree was adhered directly down to our cardstock and the left and the right trees were popped up with dimensionals to give our card a little dimension!
Our second card was a fun little creation that used LOTS of new Stampin' UP! product.  The DSP we used is the Frostwood Lodge DSP (P.28-Mini)  and our Stamp set is the Hand-Penned Holidays Stamp Set (P.15-Mini).
We created the Stocking from the Stocking Builder Punch (P.34) and used Cherry Cobbler and Frostwood Lodge DSP.  We mounted our stocking to a 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch (P.212) in Garden Green........and the 2-1/2" Circle Punch (P.212) in Cherry Cobbler.  And....Let's not forget the ADORABLE Jinglebell we added to the top cuff of our stocking - Totally giving this Holiday Stocking all the WOW FACTOR that you could ask for.
For that little something something for our card we adhered a little piece of the new 3/8" Quilted Satin Ribbon (P.30-Mini) around our DSP panel and attached that to the top portion of our card.  We stamped our sentiment with Black StatzOn ink and called this card FINISHED!
