Back with lots to share

Just in case you were wondering....no, I didn't fall off the face of the earth! It's just been a crazy week with family emergencies and planning for a group stamp camp today. Unfortunately, all that left me with no time for creating this week. But I'm back with several cards to share. The first three are cards that I designed that were selected for the stamp camp.

The first one features the rock-n-roll technique that's always a crowd pleaser. New and experienced stampers both like this simple but tres cool technique. The key is to always start by inking your stamp with the lightest color first. Then you roll the edges in a darker ink to create a unique image every time.

The next one was definitely a big hit with the campers today! Of course, who couldn't love this adorable elephant??

And this last one was my personal favorite. Very simple but very elegant.


Now that all my camp supplies are unpacked, I was ready to start creating some new projects. I love the butterfly from the Level 1 hostess stamp sets, God's Beauty. I used some markers to color in the wings and was hoping it would look like a Monarch butterfly.

Thanks for stopping by!!

I love all of them! You do a great job of adding just enough detail to make the cards beautiful but not too time-consuming for your camp.
