Day Camp (aka VBS) Week- Day 2 and a Shutter Card

Hello stampers! Happy Tuesday! Today I'm going to show you a shutter card first. I made another one using the retired DSP and Thoughts and Prayer stamp set. You can see the other one I made here weeks ago.

Here are some pictures of the Day Camp day 2.

Have been wanting to make one of these forever! After seeing your sample, I am ever more determined to get started! Great job. Love the color choice.

Day Camp (aka VBS) Week- Day 1

We had our first day of Day Camp today and it was fun. The theme for this year is Polar Express. As usual, my husband and I are at the craft table. The kids got to make a foam cross today. On the cross it said LOVE GOD.

Here are some photos I took today.

The opening of Day Camp.

Skit time. The leader Paul and Ben Freisen (Larry).

Hope and her new friend Mia.

The craft man (DH) and the photographer John.

Hope was having a hard time tracing her cross. She ended up just gluing the hearts onto the half sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" foam.

Last Chance Stamps (aka retired stamps) Cards

Hello, stampers! Happy Thursday! We're going Dim Sum today and my DH is so excited about it. He loves Dim Sum.

I made these card using all the last chance stamp sets. I didn't have a chance to use the Wild About You set yet and now it is retiring. But I got a new animals set to play with. It is called Animal Stories available to purchase July 1. This is one of the many perks of being a demonstrator, we get to preorder stamps before it is available to the customers.

Happy Birthday Card Holder

Happy Wednesday everyone! It is raining here today but we need rain once in awhile.

Today I'm showing you a card holder that holds 4 cards and envelopes. It is a nice holder to give as gifts. I'm using up my retired designer series papers which I've been hoarding for a long time to make this holder and cards. Got to use up all the old DSP so I can get new ones.

How to make this card holder:

-8 1/2" x 10" piece of cardstock for cover

-With the 11" side going across the top, score it at 5 1/4" and 5 3/4"
-With the 8 1/2" side going across the top, score it at 6" and 6 1/4"

-5 1/2" x 4 3/4" piece of cardstock for cover
-5 1/4" x 4 1/2" piece of designer series paper for cover
-two 2" x 5" pieces of designer series paper for inside pockets
-17" of ribbon
-2 brads to hold the pocket

Start with Cover and fold on all score lines. Cut on the 5 1/4" and 5 3/4" score lines from the bottom up to the 6" score line and trim off the tab in between to create the inside pockets. Use brads to hold the pockets in place. Wrap ribbon around the holder in line with the brads and adhere a glue dot to back of the brad and place ribbon over the brad to hide it.

Enjoy and have a great day!

Happy Stamping!

Cherish Roses

Hello, stampers! I made this card the same time as the one post here. I took a picture of them together but never post it. The layout is the same but the roses are different. I used the 5th Avenue Floral for this card. Stamped it three times and cut them out and layered them. I used the blender pen to coloured the rose.

Here is a picture of the two cards together. They are so pretty. I love roses. I'll buy every roses stamps SU sells. Can't get enough of them.

Here is the inside of both cards. I noramlly leave the inside blank but people tells me I need to have some kind of saying inside so I listen.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
