Stamping Calendar

FINALLY!  My 24 cards for the Stampin’ Up Demonstrator swap are DONE and went out in the mail yesterday.  The colors I used were Sahara Sand, Poppy Parade, a touch of Not Quite Navy and Certainly Celery for the leaves.  I had 24 cards to make and I had EXACTLY 24 Antique Brads left in my container.  The red petals and the butterfly were sprayed with my Home Brew (Rubbing Alcohol + Glimmer Mist) so there was lots of sparkle!Red Flower Swap

Now it’s time to come up with a make-n-take or two for our July 16th Catalog Kickoff/Open Stamp Day.  Stampin’ Up announced 5 new in-colors for the 2011-2013 year so perhaps we will do our make-n-takes with the newest in-colors.  I know Sheila will be happy as one of the new colors is Wisteria – a beautiful shade of lavender.

Here is our Stamping Calendar through the end of 2011:

If you are unable to attend a stamping event and wish to purchase a kit, please let me know by 12 N on the Saturday of the event.  As always, we will do 4-5 projects for each stamp camp and the projects will be posted on my blog sometime during the week preceding the stamp camp. 

A few more cards I wanted to share from our fellow stampers:  Pansies punched by Andrea.  The butterfly punch gives you this pansy shape; a mist of water will bring the natural curl of the petals.  Sponging and fine lines with a marker adds the coloring.

Don’t you love the Judy’s teacup complete with teabags!  This would be a perfect handmade gift for someone under the weather or even a little thank you.

Remember the box we made in May?  This is Judy’s version.  She punched out the center front and added a window sheet before putting the box together.  Then she added a die cut bird and a bit of natural hemp.  This would be cute with colored shreds peeking through the clear window.  Judy's Box

I also want to share our new addition out the patio door!  Perhaps on a windless day, we could even stamp outside!


I’m off to the craft room!  Happy stamping!  Rosemary
