Summer Card Camp Week 1

Earlier this week I signed up to attend Summer Card Camp.  The focus of this 4 week camp is on colour and it is being taught by Jennifer McGuire & Kristina Werner with 24 other Guest Designers also dropping by to share their creations and card making tips.

I wouldn't have thought of using all these five colours together in a Million years, so to get used to the idea I started with simply combining cardstock and ink to play with this combination.

Here are some of the cards I have created.

Stamps:  Unity June KOTM
Ink:  Stampin' Up  Rich Razzleberry, Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo,
Whisper White & Basic Black (Ink Pad & Markers)
Other:  Clear Embossing Powder, Grosgrain Ribbon

For this card the Number Panel was stamped in black, clear embossed and then the colours sponged over to colour in the numbers. The cupcake stamp was using the direct to rubber technique with my SU Markers and then stamped. I then coloured in the cupcake wrapper. The sentiment was simply stamped.

Stamps:  Unity June KOTM
Ink:  Stampin' Up, Cardstock:  Stampin' Up
Other:  Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Martha Stewart Scallop Wave Punch, Purple MT Tape

The image was done with my markers using the direct to rubber technique to allow all four colours to be stamped at once.  I then sponged the blue over the top.  At the top I have added the scalloped wave with stitching and MT Tape.  The bottom I have layered the pink with a white strip which has been embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. 

Stamps: Unity June KOTM, SU Sentiment from Because I Care (Hostess Set)
Ink: Stampin' Up, Cardstock: Stampin' Up
Other: Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Martha Stewart Scallop Wave Punch,
SU Small, Large,  and Scallop Oval and Itty Bitty Flower Punches and Rhinestone.
For my third card using the left over embossed panel from the second card I have simply sponged the colours over the design, added a scalloped wave piece and layered my sentiment.

This weekend I will be breaking out the patterned paper and trying some of the sketches and designs shown throughout the week with these colours. 

These bright summer colours just might be the answer to keeping the winter blues away......who knows.

Thanks for stopping by.
