VCRocks Colorful Cruisin' Blog Hop

Welcome to VCRocks last blog hop of the year. This month we are to share our favorite colors. I love bright colors. So I will be sharing from the Brights Family and one In Color.
Luckily, this blog hop happened right when I was to go to the Sr. Ctr. on Friday to make cards and then I step those up for my Stamp Camp today. It gave me the perfect opportunity to use 2 of my newest stamp sets. The first card is the Sr. Ctr. version and the second is the stepped up version for Stamp Camp.

The first card is using new Birthday Fiesta stamp set with the coordinating Fiesta Time Framelits. Colors used are Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Real Red, Crumb Cake and In Color, Cucumber Crush.

The flower on the cactus is from the Tree Builder Punch.

The second card was made using Swirly Bird stamp set with th coordinating Swirly Scribles Thinlits. The sun was made with a sponge dauber and just burnished/rubbed on. Colors used are Pool Party (Subtles), Pacific Point, Real Red and Daffodil Delight.

August 2016 Stamp Camp

Another fun get together with friends and today it was all some recently made new friends. They are Maryann's stamping group and meetup monthly to stamp down in Ruther Glen/Lake Caroline. We had a great time. I took the cards I made at the Sr. Ctr. yesterday and stepped them up for even cuter cards. Loving the bright colors and they did too! We had lot of fun!

Maryann Hoffmann and her cards
She used Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango on her Fiesta card.

 Pat and her cards
She used Cucumber Crush and Tangerine Tango for her Fiesta card.

 Kathy Schutty showing her inky fingers. Having to reinforce to only tap with the new pads and not push down. LOL!

Linda Boone and her cards
She also used Cucumber Crush and Tangerine Tango on her Fiesta card.

I made these cards after everyone had left.

 Kathy had added a third streamer on her card and it really made it POP more, so I had to make one with the extra streamer. I also made it in the other color combo they were doing.

Decided to make one with a different sentiment.

Bonnye had to stamp too. This is her creation. 

Sr. Center Cards

This month I decided to get a little more involved in the cards I did with them and I pre-cut the images needed for 2 different cards. I only had to do the stamping for 2 of them. They assembled them themselves. Everyone did a great job with a couple doing a different color combo from mine.
Note: On their cards, I could not find the stamp for the blue part of boat and did not have my markers with me, so used some reg. markers they had and drew a boat on each of their cards.
