February Stamp Card #1

Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends!
Today I have the first of the four cards we made at Stamp Camp yesterday.  But before we jump into our first card....Let me share with you all four of the cards we made at yesterday's camp.....
Our first card was a DILLY.....and that is because I walked two sessions of 12-ladies each through the process of cutting and assembling the new SU Pop 'n Cut dies and Dress Form Framelits to create this GORGEOUS and FUN card.  Check out what the ladies made........
This card does come together fairly quickly.....Once you have all the pieces cut-up and ready for assembly (which I did for all the ladies who attended my February Camp).  The ladies had everything prepared for them I their packets and I merely shared with them a demo on how you get all those pieces cut out and ready.  We started with the new Card Base Pop 'n Cuts die and cut out our Island Indigo base card.
We used the Dress Up Framelits Die to prepare the main image dress and dress form for the front of our card.  We also used the new Oval Framelits Dies (one in Whisper White....One in Pool Party) to create the mat which our dress form rested upon.
For the inside of our card we created a scene with the Dress Form Pop 'n Cuts die.  We were able to create a Dress Form....Table....Rug and Mirror for the inside of our card. 
The Dress Form is a Whisper White Dress Up Framelits die that has been altered a tiny bit at the hem line.  We also added a piece of Sycamore Street 1/4" Ribbon and two tiny pieces of glimmer paper (for the belt buckle pieces) and  few SU Rhinestones for a little added BLING!  The table was die cut from the Dress Form Pop n Cuts insert die and then we just merely covered the DSP with another piece cut out with Island Indigo cardstock.
The rug was made with two of the new Oval Framelits dies.  One in Pool Party and the other in Island Indigo.  We added the sentiment from the All Dressed Up stamp set that was stamped in Island Indigo and then diecut using the Apotheccary Accents Framelits dies.
Here's what the mirror portion on the inside of this card looks like.  It was SO MUCH FUN to make and came together SO FAST.
We diecut out one of the Apothecarty Accents Framelits dies in Island Indigo and then used our Large Oval punch to punch out a Silver Glimmer Paper for the mirror.  All that was left to do was add the two small Rhinestones to the outer edges of the frame......and we created a GORGEOUS mirror for the wall of our card..
Here's a close-up look at the Whisper White dress form that is on the inside of this card.  Can you see how adding a tiny piece of Sycamore Ribbon around the waist..........and two little pieces of Silver Glimmer Paper helped to create a fashion statement belt for our gorgeous white dress.
And one final look at what the inside of our card looked like when it was all assembled and popped open.
This card was my ALL TIME FAVORITE EVER CARD that I've made for my Stamp Camp.  I think mainly because growing up we were WAY TOOOOOO POOR to have paper dolls and the fact that I now HAVE ALL THE PIECES to this amazing and super fun set just make my Heart SMILE BIG!  But without mentioning a BIG THANKS to my good stamping buddy Kris for getting me HOOKED (I think????) and to my Jack for saying to me....."If you want all the pieces to this set......GET THEM".  That was like music to my little 6-year old ears.  Thanks Kris and Jack for helping make my 6-year old dreams come true.
NOW.......I know it's hard to top that card....but I promise you....I still have three more AMAZING and FUN Camp cards scheduled (for the next three days) please make plans to come back and join me for those cards.  Keep Living Your Dream!
