May Stamp Camp

Big shots in action!
Deb Forguson having a blast making her gifts for her loved ones!

My fellow NCW member Pat Mozden is an absolute natural at crafting!!
Her very first class was an advanced stamp camp and she did a marvelous job her projects were simply gorgeous!!

These are the projects we made at stamp camp this month.

I am loving this basic gray and pretty in Pink combo, just waiting for pink Piroquette to come back! That will top it off perfectly.
This is a gift box that can be used for several things, such as a box full of cards for Mom or someome special so that a filled to the brim with your special homemade cards for them to use on special occasions. Or you can fill it with Bath & Body Works goodies, Chocolates and much more!

The lid opens from the front you can roller wheel white tissue paper with the Very Vintage wheel if you need filler for the box, that will make a nice element of decor to your box.
We used the Vintage Vogue stamp as the focal point on this box and we also had another style with a Mother's Day Sentiment to choose from, which was beautiful as well. you can see it in the first photo above

Then each person was able to make a card from two different designs.

Very Vintage wheel in basic gray ink, satin pink ribbon, matchbox die cut label, sentiment from Fifth Avenue Floral, and of course we had to have butterflies! Butterfly Big Z die cut and butterfly embosslits were used. Along with of course, some Pretties from the Pretties Kit, a half back pearl fits perfectly in the middle of the butterflies. The butterflies were embossed with the Manhatten impressions folder to give them texture and depth.

This card was easy peasy! The white base was textured with the Finial press and the pink with the NEW Lattice impressions & folder, which gives every piece of cardstock a textured look and feel! The front of the card the focal point was simply ran through the big shot with the Manhatten impressions folder which is a (MHIYS) item you can use it to create a card in 5 minutes!
For the sentiment we used the new Watercolor Trio stamp set from the SMC by far one of the favs. The scallop oval punch is gray and the sentiment is on white popped out with the medium oval.

The famous candy tin is always a hit especially at Holidays!
Everyone designed their tin uniquely and to fit their specific needs.
Mine is for a Mother's Day gift for my Mother in Law.
I used a basic gray top note cut twice to assemble my focal point on top then stamping the Happy Mother's Day Stamp from "All Holidays "(MHIYS) item in the Holiday section of the catalog.
Using the oval die cut , I cut the pink on the lg oval and the white on the medium oval using basic gray ink to stamp the sentiment.

Wrapped all the Nuggets with DSP 1x3 inches. You must wrap them in sticky strip nothing else works trust me!!

This is a little party favor or small gift made from the square scallop die cut with a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 piece of DP on top you must use sticky strip when you roll it dotto or snail will pull up, Use the cropadile and punch a hole in the scallop at the top and run satin pink ribbon thru it and tie. We added a sentiment from Water Color Trio with the small oval and the scalloped oval.
It has a mini Hershey's bar inside of it. But they could be so cute as a diaper shower favor, too cute!! I snagged this idea from one of my downline Linda Clendening when we had our downline meeting last week!!

Inside chocloate wrapped in DSP, with a label from the matchbox die cut and the sentiment from Elements of Style new stamp set.
