A sorority sister of mine hosted a stamp camp tonight. It was my first crafting event and I am not much of a stamper. I had three goals going into this thing: learn more about stamping, learn a new technique and buy some more supplies!
We made five cards in two hours. Which has got to be a record for me. The quicker pace resulted in less perfection (especially with lining up the papers). Overall, I really like the cards we made.
I learned one new thing for each of these cards. On the pink card I heat embossed for the first time...and a second time because I burnt it the first time! The embossing doesn't come out on the picture. But I'm excited I got to try it. On the Congratulations card I used a tool called a Crop-a-Dile. It makes eyelet setting so easy! The heat embosser and Crop-a-Dile are now on my must get list!
I love the colors on this card and aren't those little stamps so cute? The new stamping technique that I used here was inking the stamp with an ink marker instead of an ink pad. I liked coloring the stamp so much I bought a set of ink markers! I'm not crazy about the way my fifth turned out so I'm not going to post a picture of it. I didn't do a good job of centering the circle cuts...it made me really appreciate my Cricut. Thank you to my wonderful host. It was nice meeting everyone.
