Additional Colors For Card Camp, Week #3

After struggling with this week's card camp colors, I was happy to see the post today with the additional colors. Here they are. I decided I loved the fourth one down with the purples, light green, silver and white.

I took out one of my favorite flower stamps from Hero Arts called, Tall Flower and got started. I embossed the image in silver on both the card base and another piece of white cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers then cut out the flowers and popped them up onto the card base image. The darker areas of the flowers look black in the photo but they are actually a dark purple color.

I used a line and dot embossing folder for the card base and the light green ribbon is Hero Hues.

I have some really exciting news that I will be sharing with you sometime next week! I'm not only excited but a little nervous too. Can't wait to tell you about it!

We are starting to get some VERY HOT and humid weather. Saturday will be in the 90's and Sunday is suppose to be 98 degrees! That's right, here in Minnesota, it's not always a frozen tundra and no matter how hot it gets, I don't complain because it's a whole lot better than trying to shovel 3 feet of snow!

Thanks for coming by! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! :)

Week #3, Summer Card Camp

I have really been struggling with the colors for this week's Card Camp. I've made three cards so far, two of which I won't be posting. . . .yuk! This one turned out okay, I guess. I think I'm just better at using bright colors.

I did enjoy putting this together and used some fun elements. The red ribbon, chocolate colored twine and white flower are all from Hero Arts. I also used the Hero Arts, Magical Background on the card base, stamped in Hero Hues, Latte Chalk Ink. I embossed the oval die cut with my Cuttlebug, then gently added some brown ink just to the dots. The shiny, red letters are Thickers.

I'm hoping to get another card made for camp, using Jennifer's "Finger-inking" technique. . .looks like lots of fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
