Leftover Class Card Kits Transformed

I'm sharing the cards created in my February Stamp Camp. I had some card kits leftover and thought it would be fun to challenge myself to make another option with the items in the kit. First up is the Stamp Camp card, using the Honey Bee bundle and Golden Honey DSP.

Measurements:
Thick Whisper White card base - 11 x 4 1/4, scored & folded at 5 1/2
Basic Black - 5 3/8 x 4 1/8
Golden Honey DSP - 5 1/4 x 4, 2 x 5 1/4

Now here's what I came up with using items from the kit. I stayed with the Honey Bee bundle and Golden Honey DSP, simply changed up the layout. I must admit, this one is my favorite!!

Measurements:
Thick Whisper White card base - 11 x 4 1/4, scored and folded at 5 1/2
Golden Honey DSP - 5 1/4 x 2, 5 1/4 x 1 5/8
Basic Black - 5 3/8 x 1 3/4

Here is the 2nd stamp camp card. Simple yet elegant with the white heat embossed flowers and touch of gold foil.

Measurements:
Crumb Cake card base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4
Basic Black - 5 1/8 x 3 7/8
Crumb Cake - 5 x 3 3/4
Golden Honey DSP - 4 5/8 x 3/8
Gold Foil - 4 3/8 x 1/4

And here's what I created with the leftover pieces. I did add another strip of DSP because I wanted 3 total, much more pleasing to the eye. The stamp set I used for the sentiment is Banded Together.

Measurements:
Crumb Cake card base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4
Basic Black - 5 1/8 x 3 7/8
Crumb Cake - 5 x 3 3/4
Golden Honey DSP - 3/8" wide, start long then trim down to desired length
Gold Foil - 1/4" wide, start long then trim down to desired length

The third stamp camp card was this Gate Fold Valentine. I love the From My Heart DSP used on it. But of course I wanted to created a non-Valentine card with my recycle challenge...

The DSP is the opposite side of the heart paper used above...fabulous!! The stamp sets I used are Heart to Heart and Timeless Tulips. A striking "hello" gate fold card if I may say so myself!!

Measurements:
Thick Whisper White card base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored and folded at 2 1/8 from each end along the      8 1/2" side
Flirty Flamingo - 5 3/8 x 2 (you need 2 of these)
From the Heart DSP - 5 1/4 x 1 7/8 (you need 2 of these)

And here's the video to show how each recycled card was made:

Christmas Card Challenge #5 -- A Sketch

Here's is my latest Christmas card challenge card for this week, and it's a sketch. I do love my sketches!! The only thing I changed was the placement of the embellishments. On the original sketch, they were placed at the bottom right. Well, I wanted my sentiment there so I switched it to upper left. The change balanced it up nicely!! The DSP I used came from the holiday catalog and is called Come to Gather. It was a fall themed paper pack but the colors were what drew me in, Pretty Peacock and Mint Macaron. Yes, my stamp set is also retired but, shame on me, never saw ink...so now it has!!

Black & Gold Christmas Challenge

No photo description available.

I'm running a little late with my weekly Christmas card challenge card, and this one was right up my alley...Black and Gold. How perfect for a Pittsburgh sports fan, we're all about our black & gold!!! 

I pulled out a piece of retired DSP and cut it into 5 1/4 x 4 inch pieces and created 6 cards. I used the Pine Tree punch to first punch out the tree on gold foil. I then, using a circle die, cut out the negative image. So fun to create!!!!! 

Measurements:
Thick Whisper White card base: 11 x 4 1/4, scored and folded at 5 1/2
Basic Black:  5 3/8 x 4 1/8
DSP:  5 1/4 x 4

Weekly Christmas Card Challenge - Use a Stencil

Even though the stamp set and coordinating punch are retired, I still wanted to share my latest weekly Christmas Card Challenge where we had to use a stencil. The stencil is one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks from the annual catalog. Believe it or not, I went traditional with my holiday colors (that is so not like me!!), Call me Clover (sponged over the stencil in an ombre effect) and Lovely Lipstick. A little pop of gold with the metallic pearls and this simple card is complete. Can't wait to see what our next challenge will be!!!

Measurements:
Thick Whisper White card base - 11 x 4 1/4, scored and folded at 5 1/2
Call Me Clover - 5 1/8 x 3 7/8
Whisper White - 5 x 3 3/4
