Free-for-All Friday: Summer Card Camp Week Two

by Lain Ehmann on July 8, 2011

I’ve decided to make Friday a free-for-all. Who knows what you might find: Links to my fave non-scrappy products, a glimpse into my “outer” world, a card idea, stamping… you’ll just have to tune in to find out!

It’s the second week of Summer Card Camp, and I’m having a blast! It’s so nice having someone ELSE have to worry about the assignments, the blogs, the prizes, the handouts, the customer service… whew! Makes me tired just thinking about it! ;)

We had another fun color combo this week to work with, and here is my card:

Here’s the inside:

The monkeys are a new set I just got on clearance… I couldn’t resist those vines! I colored the monkeys with Copics and the vines with stamp markers. A little baker’s twine in the orange of the color scheme, and voila!

What are you up to lately?

    Love your card! I’m enjoyed the class, too, and used monkeys as well. Those colors just called for some jungle goodness.

    That card is so cute! Looks like you are having fun!

    Can’t wait to see what you’ve made! The gallery is a tad overwhelming, but I’m looking forward to diving in!

    so cute, where did you get the stamps?

    Those cute monkey stamps were on sale at Michaels! :) They are by Stampendous. I believe they were on clearance for $3.99!

    I love your card:)  I do have a question regarding the copics (I have never used) you use and talk about all the time.  I tried using my stamp markers (I have two sets from two different companies) for some color blending but it didn’t pop like your monkeys or other examples I have seen you done.  What makes copics different from stamp markers?  Thanks:)

    Thanks, Jen! The simple answer is that Copics are alcohol-based, so the blending process and resulting colors are very different. I have a bunch of info on my blog at’copics, including a video with some basic info about Copics.

    Great Thank You:)

    Great card. I love it and bow to you. Your card is full with love, radiates that precious feeling and thus the outward simplicity makes your touch the real artwork worthy the note –

    Very cute! Great job. How long did this take you?

    Thank you!
    It took me about 20 minutes. The actual coloring took about 10 minutes — the hardest part was the blue! I used three different shades and kept getting them all mixed up and having to try to salvage it. ;) Then the “fussy cutting” of the palm leaves took a bit of time, too. The rest was easy-peasy. :)
