June Stamp Camp

Only Margarethe was able to come this month and she decided she wasn't in the mood to stamp. So she just took the precut parts to the card using the Bohemian DSP and would do something with it later at home. I started playing with the Watercolor Wings set that I planned to use to make the card like the ones from the Sr. Ctr. the previous day and let them play and make up their own color combos. I did up a bunch of color combos. I made 3 of each, one for her, one for me for a card and one for a chart. Put the ones for the cards away to use later and just made up a chart of them. I have a ton more combos I want to try.
Here is the card using the Bohemian DSP and Age Awareness stamp set and the new Triple Banner Punch. It is a CASE of a card done by Janet Wakeland for our team Virtual Party on Facebook.

Team RemARKables Virtual Party on Facebook

This month I purchased the packet for the projects that Janet Wakeland would be showing videos for. The kit included all paper and accessories needed, we just had to supply the stamps, ink and adhesive. I got 2 of the stamp sets needed for them, but thought I could use something different for the other one she listed, but once I saw the projects, I decided I preferred the ones from that set and it grew on me. So now I need to get it to do a couple of the projects, so not all 9 done.  Here are the ones I did do (projects 1-9). I will update with the others once I get them done.

Sr. Ctr. Cardmaking Day

Had a good time with the ladies again. We made Birthday and Thinking of You cards and one made a Father's Day card for her hubby (she wasn't there last month). Today we concentrated on the new Watercolor Wings set. I made up some in the blue and the yellow combos and then they chose the one they each wanted and then chose a sentiment to go with it. I cut the butterflies out with the Bold Butterfly framelits and we glued down the body so the wings could be raised up. I just happened to grab the "King of the Grill" stamp set, just in case and glad I did. She said he didn't grill, but it would still do.

 The one with no sentiment was for one of the ladies that had to leave early, so I finished hers up and she can stamp what she wants on it with some other sets that I gave them long time ago to keep there, just in case I can't come and they want to make some cards. I've slowly built up their stock of paper and gave them an old paper trimmer, scrubbing pad and black ink pads and a mono adhesive holder and they get their own refills for it.

June MPP - Happy Thoughts

Like that there are 2 totally different cards to make in this kit. Only did one of each as I have some alternate ideas for any additional ones. Like the envelope liners as well. Adds such a nice touch to them.

VCRocks Second VSD Challenges

Sat., 6/13 was the second Virtual Stamping Day (VSD) Challenges for this season. I joined in late and got the first five done and finished the rest today. This time I even did the scrapbook pages, but I used Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio (MDS) to do them. My last chance to use it before it retires the end of month and I move everything over to My Memoires Studio (MMS). I did all of the challenges except #6 & #10.

#1 Make a monochromatic card.

Chose to recreate one of the cards from my Open House last weekend.
#2 Create a Scrapbook page for water. It can be water from a pool, beach, waterfall, kitchen sink, drink, etc, anything as long as water is the theme of the page.

Of course, I had to do a page involving my favorite person, my granddaughter, Bonnye.

#3 CASE a card out of the catalog.

Chose a card on page 98.
#4 Create a page with the theme food.

What better page to do than one with food from some of my red hat luncheons. LOL!

#5 Make a card using ONLY 5 colors from 1 color family (card stock & ink)
with either white or vanilla.

Chose to recreate another card from my Open House with minor changes to get all the colors from the same group and I chose to use all the new 2015-'17 In Colors. Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Tip Top Taupe and Delightful Dijon.
#6 Create a Scrapbook page using only 2 colors and 2 embellishments. Didn't do this one.

#7 Make a card using punch art.

I had saved this onto my Pinterest acct. and was happy for a chance to make it. Sentiment is from Guy Greetings. Cardstock used: Whisper White, Cucumber Crush, So Saffron, Real Red.
#8 Make a scrapbook page about the beach. Whether you have been there or it is on your future bucket list.
Again my favorite subject, Bonnye!

#9 Make a card using Pool Party, Pear Pizazz & Soft Suede. Now this one I started to not do, as I just wasn't sure what to use with these colors. I swear I dreamed about this card the night before. Love it and love this stamp set.

Stamp Set: YeeHaw! (Photopolymer set)
#10 Retired Challenge: Create a page using at least 2 retired colors, they can be any retired colors. Didn't do this one.

#11 #11 Make a card using the following sketch from our Ms. Robin (she gives measurements, YAY!).

This was a little out of my comfort zone. More involved than what I generally do, but I love it.
Stamp set: Papillon Potpourri, Sassy Salutations
Paper: Gingham Garden DSP, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Island Indigo
Ink: Melon Mambo
Tools: Elegant Butterfly Punch
#12 Create a Scrapbook page with pictures from your childhood.  This one I just shared 2 previously made pages as these are pretty much the only photos I have of me as a very young child.
