Spring Card Camp Days 3, 6, and 7

I am slow posting the cards I have created as I go through the class. Today is Day 12, and this post will allow you to catch up with all I have created.

Day 3 Flourish
Day 3 Roses

Day 3 was all about embossing with stencils. I watched the class video, tried getting my sandwich correct for my Big Shot and it wasn’t working. I finally went into the Gina K library and found a card she created a couple of years ago with the Cuttlebug. That was perfect for me, as I was able to get my sandwich correct. I embossed several pieces of cardstock, which are waiting to be used on a future date.

Day 6 Color Blocking

Day 6 was color blocking where the assignment was to either use embossing folders to create texture or use a stamp and heat emboss. I used the MFT Flourish background stamp on SU cardstock that is quickly retiring in color. These colors are Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch, Blueberry Bushel and are heat embossed with Gina K Designs white embossing powder. The die is from Sizzix, part of a card die set. I enjoyed this class quite a bit and have pieces of this embossed paper left for other cards.

Day 7 Framed Vellum
Day 7 Vellum Overlay

Day 7 was all about Vellum. For the first card I used the Flower Power die by Sizzix and Stephanie Bernard. I used a piece of scrapbook paper and tried laying the vellum on it, but it was too much lavender, so I finally decided it looked good on black. It needed the white behind the vellum and black to balance it, so I grabbed the Hello die, from Gina K Designs and cut the black Hello. By this time I had a large piece of black cardstock with adhesive on the back, so I keep cutting Hello dies from this cardstock, placing them on the card for a greeting.

The second card was fun to create. I placed the Friendship Blooms set in my MISTI and stamped it with black ink, followed by Versamark and used clear embossing powder. I simply do not like black embossing powder, so I usually use either regular black ink or a black pigment ink and clear embossing powder. The vellum overlay has a circle cut in the center for the flower to show through and a white frame added. I liked this card better then the one with lavender. The Hello die and the stamp set remained on my desk and MISTI for quite a while, so they both keep getting used.

Thanks for reading this post and sharing in my class creations.

  1. You have done well with camp this go around. I too use my Cuttlebug for embossing with stencil. Sad that your Big Shot was not working as well. Not every person that crafts has both.

    1. The Big Shot worked in the end, but I had to see it on the Cuttlebug. I couldn’t translate her Spellbinders machine with the specialized plates into my regular plates. I doubt I do much of this as I have a tone of folders in a large variety of designs. Thanks!

  2. Super cards. You did way better than I did embossing with the stencil. I’ve got to get caught up with my camp assignments.

    1. It took a lot to get the embossing correct. I am not caught up at all, but some ideas do not interest me. Thanks!

  3. Great collection of cards! I love seeing what your are doing with the lessons. (Great job!!) I’ve been watching all the videos but haven’t had the time to try any of the techniques yet.

    1. Thanks! I think some lessons are more enjoyable than others. Hope you get some time to work on a few techniques.

  4. You are doing great with this camp Lisa. A wonderful group of cards and interesting to see how you got there. I too have trouble embossing with stencils. Must play a bit more and see what I can improve as based on yours there are some interesting ideas to play with.

    1. Thanks, Johanna. Some of the ideas take more time than others. Once I got the sandwich correct, it was easy to emboss with the stencil, but like I told someone else, I have well over 100 embossing folders and couldn’t possibly use all of them in any time frame, so embossing with stencils is a fun technique, but will probably stick to my folders.

  5. Card camp is showing that you are top of the class with these cards, Lisa. Great color choices especially the color blocking card. I love the shadow die for the sentiment on that card too. Have fun at camp. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you! I really enjoyed the color blocking. I stuck to a simply layout, rather than really mix those pieces. Maybe one of these days.

  6. I like all of your cards, Lisa! Of the bottom two, I know why you like the last one best, but the look of the white die cut piece behind the vellum on the lavender one is beautiful. You certainly did a lot and it looks like you had a lot of fun through the class.

    1. Thanks! Still working on the class, a little at a time. I am a few lessons behind, but that is okay as there is no hurry.
