Here are a couple projects from Card Camp. These are from yesterday not today....I haven't had a chance to get to today's projects. Hopefully I'll be able to get something accomplished tomorrow - I'm really looking forward to it because the techniques Jennifer shared were really cool! And I happen to have that verdigris embossing powder she used....what are the odds, lol!!
This next card uses my new Newton's Nook stamps....ordered them Saturday, had them on Monday!!! Wow, great service! Love the kitty stamps!

I played along with PTI's Make it Monday today. The technique Betsy shared was to create a 3-D looking effect using a die cut word. I chose the hello die and this was actually more difficult than most MIM's for me. It turned out okay....I'm not 100% satisfied but I think it looks pretty good. I was also able to use the color combo for Card Camp 2 (purple, aqua, tan, brown and raspberry). Yay!!! I find this week's colors easier than last week. I think I had a hard time last week because I considered those colors more "manly", lol!!
I also got a card done for the first week's card camp color combo. I started in week 2, so I'm slowly getting there!! I love how this turned out. Using Copics on the paper before I die cut the word worked awesome!!

Yay!! I got another card done for class today!! The challenge was to use a holiday stamp in a non-holiday way. I looked through my stamps and settled on a Lawn Fawn set and used the gingerbread house as a regular house. Ironically enough, with all my stamps I ended up using the same sentiment that I used on yesterday's card. What are the odds?! I thought this would make a really cute housewarming card. Again, these colors are really hard for me. I really wanted to use brighter colors....those flowers are just begging to be red, lol!!
