May stamp camp, card 4

Hi there! This is the 4th card that was made at my May stamp camp. This card features 2 of the round punches, used as a decorative accent to the strip of cardstock and designer paper at the bottom of the page. Just start out punching with the 1" round punch on the Pear Pizzazz card stock. Then layer the 1 1/4" round punch over what you've just punched out, and you get a ring of card stock. I slipped 3 on each side of the card stock strip, accenting the center floral punched piece.

Stamp Set: Just Believe
Card Stock: Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Designer Series Pack In-Color
Accessories: Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz markers, 1" and 1 1/4" round punches

Thanks for looking! ~ Martha

May stamp camp, card 3

This is the third card that was made at my May stamp camp. This card features the Butterfly Extra large punch. I used the Elements of Style stamp set which was stamped with Black Staz On onto Whisper White card stock. I used the aqua painter to color in the image with Concord Crush and Pear Pizazz, giving my customers part of the card that was already completed for them. Everyone knows I LOVE to use the aqua painter! By using the Butterfly punch, decide on an area that you like of the stamped piece, and punch out. The butterflies were added to the card with white brads.

Card Stock: Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White
Stamp Sets: Elements of Style, Sincere Salutations
Accessories: Butterfly Extra Large punch, 1 3/4 x 7/8 oval large punch, Scallop oval extra large punch, Elegant Lines embossing folder, aqua painter, white brads

May stamp camp, card 2

This is the second card that was made at my stamp camp this week. This card features the Round Tab Extra Large Punch, which was used to make the 3 purses. All you need to do is punch 3 designer papers, here we used Beyond the Garden, fold the punched piece in half and you have a purse! By using both the small and large oval punches, now you have an instant handle. The front "flap" of the purse uses part of the small oval punched piece.

Papers: Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White
Punches: Round Tab Extra Large, small and large oval, Scallop Trim Border
Designer Paper: Beyond the Garden
Accessories: Petals-A-Plenty embossing folder, gold brads

Thanks for looking! ~ Martha

May stamp camp, card 1

This is the first of the 5 cards that will be made at my May stamp camp this week. This month I'm featuring different ways to use punches. I LOVE this card! The punch featured on this card is the Ornament Extra-Large punch. I first punched with chocolate chip card stock, ran that piece through the Square Lattice embossing folder, cut a small portion of the bottom off, and you instantly have a vase!
