Harvest stamp camp

Here's more from my last stamp camp. This first one we got to use the new letterpress plates, which is pretty cool. I used craft ink for this one, but I've heard the classic ink works just as well if not better. I love punches, so of course I just had to get the bat punch.

This design I found on Splitcoast, but I added the ribbon and used the decorative label punch and pearl. I used the Rock'n Roll method for stamping the leaves.

And lastly, here's a little favor bag or luminaire we made using the Fancy Favor die. Punched out a circle using the 1"3/4" circle punch, and added a piece of vellum cardstock that had been run through the Big Shot using the Web embossing folder. Added a bat that was covered with Chuncky Black glitter and tied Raven lace trim around it.

Last weekend I had a, Harvest Stamp Camp, making Halloween and Thanksgiving Day cards. I've been so swamped with work lately that I haven't been real creative coming up with ideas. So, I got some great ideas looking through Split Coast Stampers. I didn't keep track of who I took ideas from, but still want to shout out a big Thank you!!

I'll share a couple with you today and post more later. Enjoy!

Love these ghosts!! All you need is the Owl Punch, how cool is that? :o)

Love, Love, Love the Spider Web embossing folder!! My photo isn't real good, but I spritzed the web with Silver Foil Smooch Spritz. This was my first time using the spritz. I like how it looks, but it's a little messy and tends to clog, so you just have to have patience when using it. :o)

Last month I finally got around to making these cute pansies using the butterfly punch. I've seen so many posts with these flowers and when I saw my upline Nancy had post a couple 'How-to' links on her site, I just had to give it a try. I was amazed how easy they were to make, and no two will ever look alike. You have to give it a try, go to her site here to view the videos. Enjoy!

I'm so happy, I actually got two cards done this week, LOL! Here's another new SU! set which I've had for a little while, and just now had a chance to play. I thought this set is just too cute, it won't be hard coming up with some fun designs. I have a shoebox swap I'm going to on Monday, so I plan on using this card. I think Marina Mist is turning out to be one of my new favorite colors too! :o)
