Card Camp Part Two

I really enjoyed playing with the colour combo from Summer Card Camp, such vivid and happy colours.
And here's my second card.
I just love these dotty butterflies from Memory Box. I clear embossed them for some shine and mounted onto a card base stamped with Hero Arts Woodgrain stamp. The greeting is a stamp from the Stampin Up set called So Happy For You.

Wishing all Canadians a happy Canada Day tomorrow!

Summer Card Camp

I'm enrolled in "Summer Camp" with Jennifer McGuire & Kristina Werner. This is not your average summer camp. It involves papercrafting, getting inky and learning some fun techniques.

Here is this weeks colour combo.
Not colours I would think of putting together but that's what this is all about. Trying new things, and I really had a fun time with these vibrant colours!

I used some pigment ink and a stamp from Outlines Rubber Stamp Company to create my card. I added some paper piercing and used Kassie's Brocade embossing folder on my cardbase.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Card for Dad

Here's the card I made for my dad for Father's Day. Simple and clean. Nothing fussy for my dad.

For my card base I used Cornish Heritage Farms Weathered Wood Background stamp. Love the crackly goodness of this stamp. I used Twinkling H2O's on watercolour paper for the background for Memory Box's Cattail Birds stamp and I used Fun Flock to make the cattails fuzzy. It adds such fun texture on a card!

Wishing you an inky day!
