Cards, Cards, Cards Stamp Class

So Tuesday night was my September Cards Stamp Camp and we focused on cards for the upcoming season - each person attending made 6 cards - 2 each of 3 designs, for $15.00. We had an absolutely great time! So here's the first card we made was using the new "Day of Gratitude" set from the Holiday mini catalog. We used the leaf and the flower stamps to create background patterns, then used the dauber on the medallion to sponge on color - they turned out sooooo warm and rich looking.
The second card we made was our Halloween card using the "Wicked Cool" set from the current catalog and our amazing new spider web embossing folder from the mini. These cards turned out soooo cute - can't wait to send them out to wish everyone a 'Spooky' Halloween. The final card we made was just a general fall type card. But we heat embossed the leaves from "Paisley Prints" with clear embossing powder on Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze (talk about a WOW factor) then cut them out and attached with some linen thread to torn layers of color. The verse is from Friends 24-7 and to finish it off -----
we spritzed the entire thing with gold Smooch at the end - it's hard to see in the picture, but on the card it gave a beautiful fall golden glow - you can see it a bit better in this close up.And I love the layer behind the verse - just cut small portions of the same punch (about 1/2" on each side) and then layered it on each end with tape and popped it all up on dimensionals. How cute is that! Hope you liked the cards, and if you live in my area in Southern Cal maybe you can join us soon. Now - go stamp :)
