Paper Pumpkin - All Shook Up

I've said it before and I'll say it again:
I love the surprise I get in the mail each month.
I love creating fun and unique projects each month
without all the planning and prep.
It all comes ready to create.

Last month we created these fun shaker cards.
There were enough supplies for 9 cards with envelopes.

There were three different card designs.

Along with all the paper supplies, accessories, ink and stamps,
Stampin' Up occasionally adds in an extra surprise.  
This month we got a free Essentials Paper Piercing pack!

During Sale-a-bration, Paper Pumpkin Prepaid Subscriptions
are on sale!  Details here.

Sale-a-bration Stamp Camp - A Happy Thing Stamp Set

The last set we used for Stamp Camp was
I totally love the pretty lemon image.
It also has a hummingbird image I plan to use 
at my next Stamping Techniques Club.

This was my design for stamp camp.
It uses the pre-cut notecards which I embossed with polka dots.
It has a vellum overlay that I stamped on the front.
On the backside, I colored it with markers.

This is Ruth's card.  I love the look of the lemon.
She colored directly on the stamp with markers.
These cards have such a different look with the same stamp.

Sale-a-bration Stamp Camp - Simply Wonderful Stamp Set

The second set we used for Stamp Camp was
It's a versatile set of words, some of which
coordinate with our punches.
This is my card.  I also used the new set Crazy About You.
With 33 stamps, this is also a versatile set.  
I also used the new Painted Blooms Cotton Twine

I love the beautiful rainbow design on Ruth's card.
The words are from the Crazy About You set
and the butterfly is from the beautiful new set

The last two projects will post tomorrow.

Sale-a-bration Stamp Camp - Lotus Blossom

We had our annual Sale-a-bration Stamp Camp
last weekend and the projects were so cute!
This is my project using the Lotus Blossom Stamp Set.
I LOVE this pretty flower image.  You get a lot of pretty depth and detail
without a lot of time and work.
See Ruth Norton's Blog for details on how to use these stamps.

This is Ruth's stamp camp project.  
She used Melon Mambo, my favorite SU color.
So pretty and sweet!

Here are a few pics of the busy stampers.
My daughter, Ruby, is my faithful helper at each camp.
She's standing by in the background ready to assist.
Her favorite part of stamp camp is drawing
names for door prizes.  :)

This is Pam, Mandi, and Martha working on
the Lotus Blossom.

Here are Joni and Twylla.

More Stamp Camp projects to come!
