Cards Stamp Camp

Tonight I want to share with you the three cards we made at this month's Cards, Cards, Cards Stamp Camp. We had 10 of us there and each person got to make 6 cards - 2 each of these 3 designs. The theme was Valentine's and all of these cards used the current Stampin' Up! Bundle special that you can view here -
http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/stampingwithmaureen/promotions You can order directly through that site at my online store, or by contacting me by email - but you've got to hurry as this bundle special ends January 24th -
This first card was our masculine one and used the DSP, set and button from the bundle. The red heart is punched from the fantastic Glitter Paper in our current mini catalog. The black threaded through the little red heart button is made by cutting a very thin slice of our Basic Black cardstock and using it like thread - so cool!

The second card we made was a little fun and funky - I got this idea from a card I saw on a site earlier this year and had to do my spin on it. This uses non-traditional Valentine's colors - and I thought it would be perfect for that teen that didn't want a Valentine to look all romantic and mushy. I really like the way it turned out.

The final card we made is similar to many I've seen before - I used the DSP plus red and gray and punched out a ton of hearts - then we adhered them to look like they were pouring out of the envelope - how cute is that! This was my more feminine take on Valentine's. We had a great time - with a group of ladies just getting together to share and stamp - what a stress reliever. Hope you enjoyed - stop back soon!! Please leave a comment if you have a moment - I'd love to hear what you think!
