Summer Card Camp: Week One

by Lain Ehmann on June 29, 2011

I am having so much fun at Summer Card Camp! Here’s my Week One assignment:

This week’s color combo was perfect sherbet colors to play with. I kept things basic so I could complete this quickly (and play with some of my new toys!).

1. I cut the opening in the card using my new Spellbinders Labels 8.

2. Using a technique from Jennifer McGuire, I added a clear window using leftover packaging.

3. I cut the pink label with a Sizzix die (can you tell I love my Big Kick??).

4. I stamped small dots on the label using Versamark, a watermark stamp pad that just turns the paper a shade darker.

5. I stamped the “You Make Me Smile” sentiment with Ali Edwards/Technique Tuesday stamp set, then embossed it in white.

6. I added a little bling on each edge of the pink label.

7. I added the Prima flower with a button and a little baker’s twine.

Voila! Finished in about 10 minutes — two minutes of which was spent cleaning the extra embossing powder off the dots where it stuck even though I’d heat-dried it. Whoops! ;) Wouldn’t be mine without a mishap of some sort.

P.S. Here’s another card that I created with this color palette, based on a sketch from Kristina:

    Love your card Lain!  Makes me want to make a card too – haven’t felt my creative mojo in a while…sadly.  But I love my Big Kick and this is gorgeous and sounded easy!
