Week4 Summer Card Camp- Thank you

This is the 1st is a series of 3 which I plan on making a full set of 10 for my envelope stationary set. for the measurements of the paper pieces please see the previous posts. Used the same 4 strips of paper for all 3 cards. Again I love the simple look of these. My Sister ask me to make her a set of 12 cards with her initial on them but very simple cards and I got hooked. I love to make the very basic simple as well as a  very intricate card. I have found when the time comes some papers will speak to me and say hey remember me why not combined me with the other paper and then it all falls into place. It is like that with color for me as well. I have always like adding different or at the time some thought odd color combos together before those colors would be popular together like teal and green. I have always had a eye for color and still do. It really shows in my quilts as well as my paper crafting. This is the one talent that I felt God gave me (and i do mean other than being a wife and mother )and I am proud of it.

Week 4 Summer Card Camp -Thinking of you

So this is the 2nd card in the series of three and again the paper is still from the original 4 strips that I cut 12 x 1 1/4, 12 x 1 and two at 12 x 3/4in.  Yet still very simple and sweet....

Week 4 Summer Card Camp. Sunshine and smiles

I really keep this card simple with only two stamps and scraps of paper this is actually the 3rd card in the set of three that I made at the same time. I only used three strips of paper to make all three cards the first strip was 12 x 1 1/4in, 12 x 1in and two at 12x 3/4 in. I used the same stamp from stamp in up. I love how sweet and simple these turned out. I think I am going to make an entire set of 10 for one of my box sets as a gift. But then I am loving these colors.

Summer Card Camp Week 4 and 4 more card to share

I am so loving this color combo and having so much fun with it.
I used my Slice Design card basic shapes it has great quilting shapes such as  hexagons which I used to cut 1 1/2in out of October afternoon, Cosmo cricket and jillibean soup paper. The stamp is from Cornish Heritage Farms Sweet Bee I made it very simple how ever I was going to add a butterfly and forgot go figure.... I still have 3 more card to post and share with you. So I will be back in a few to post those.....

Light Houses

My very first time ever seeing lighthouses. I never really appreciated them until now. And wow what a site they are.
this is Ocracoke Abby was able to say the name right before I was and I think this one was our favorite light house or at least the name is.

Welcome to Hatteras we where not able to go up they closed it due to the heat. But Abby can tell you that there are 284 stairs

And last but not least this is Bodie Lighthouse that is  Abby  in the field in front of the Light House.
I think I am hooked I would love to go and see more lighthouses.

Blues with a touch of green

 WOW where has the past 3 weeks gone. I can't can't believe that we where just at the beach and back already. Abby is at summer day camp and Rick is back to work and I am still trying to get the unpacking done. And Here we are in the last week of summer day camp and I have my first card ready to go.

A Happy Birthday Card

This was the last card I was able to make on Vacation. I didn't get a lot done but Hey the beach was to die for. I had so much fun and got a tan to boot. Here is a a pic for Me and Abby in the car today we got back last night late and Went to have lunch with my Mom and Dad.
Ok Now for my card I used hero arts stamps and Tim Holtz distress ink  to color in  the stamp. I used my slice to cut the butterflies and tag and add a little rickrack to go with it.

Back home and glad to be...

*** NEW ***

First a Hugh Thank you shout out to my MOM for staying at our place taking care of Frankie Rue our dog and our 2 cats Ammo and Diamond.  I am so glad to be back home but what a great vacation we had in the Outer Bank NC I will have more pic to share with our vacation a little later but for now here is a card for the Summer card camp. My Husband found a scrapbook store in the Outer Banks and I bought 2 light house stamps this stamp is of Ocracoke Light House. It was a beautiful site to see, I never really appreciated them until now.
I made a garden gate card for for this lovely stamp from Impression Obsession I used copics and colored pencils.(yes I know I used green which is not in the color combo but it needed it) I made it for a Thank You card for Dale for making the most wonderful cookies for us on vacation. Thank you Dale.

Second Post of the day.

The color combo of the week was a little hard for me to get my head around at first then I went through all my papers and go figure these colors where popping up alot. So this was a lot easy than I thought. How ever once I sat down it got a little harder I am used to using more colors so this was a good challenge for me.

I used odd & Ends from Cosmo Cricket paper and for the stamps and back ground I used Hero Arts stamps ricrac and a button.

Hello all Sorry for taking so long to post

IF you are watching the All stars game I hope you are enjoying it. I am finally getting around to posting. Here we are in week three and I have usually posted a lot by now but Living on the beach is what I have been doing. The work is so hard ha ha.... I have really been enjoying NC the Outer Banks. What a beautiful place....
So here is the Color Combo for the week
Here is the first card I have share with you I used Jenni Bowlin paper and October afternoon. the little note was from Crafty secrets stamp.I also used the I-rock tool to add  then just a little lace pearls

Here is the sweetest picture of Abby and her uncle Steve's dog a golden-doodle named Harrison. Sitting on the kitchen floor at the beach house in NC she is in heaven getting to have so much time playing with him.

So here is my next card. I really like the sketch from summer card camp and I already had the paper laid out from Sassafras Lass and October afternoon and knew that instantly that it would be used for this sketch, I just love how this card came together. I really do love the oranges an yellows right now. these colors are so fun.

Thank You Card

Week 2 of Summer Card Camp & Happy 4th

WOW what can I say but Happy 4th of July!
It has been a little wet today and I can't believe that I am about to say this but we needed it. After all the rain we had this spring it was been a little dry so a little rain is ok.
And Happy week 2 of summer card camp. This is a great color combo. I am loving it.
Here is my first card for the week, I have been a little slow getting my card done today I have a lot to get done this week.

This are in Abby's garden her black eyed Susan's are perfect for the color combo. I might just be making a card using these. the yellows orange and greens are just perfect.
