At Stamp Camp there are presentations of techniques or stamp set spotlights. We get the opportunity to see new techniques and be inspired. This years presentations were on bleaching, embossing paste, faux silk, Retiform or Block technique.
The last presentation was by me and I did a Spot light on a stamp set called Pocketful of Sunshine (143719 $30.00) and matching Framelits (143750 $41.00). You can save 10% if you buy these two items as a bundle (145345 $63.75)
I started making samples early and searched Pinterest to see what inspiration I could get. I made these cards after being inspired.
Then I wanted to use some of the Embossing paste to create a wall and create a graffitti wall with the stamps.
While at Stamp Camp I was told about a card similar to the one below. I used gold embossing powder for the bottom glasses.
If you’d like to purchase this stamp set or framelits, you can contact me.
This past weekend I’ve been to our teams weekend away.
We have the most amazing upline that organises a fantastic weekend away for us. She needs to limit the numbers as we like to have some room to create.
When we first arrive we are greeted with a bag of challenges to complete along with some extra goodies to get us through the weekend.
There are shoebox swaps to complete throughout the weekend as well. If you can’t get your mojo going the shoeboxes are a great way to be creative without the thinking. All the prep is completed and all you need to do is stamp and assemble.
The challenges can be trickier. You are given some supplies and you need to create a project with them. You can add other things as well.
The worst part of the weekend is packing up and heading home. Though seeing the family again is great and always good to sleep in your own bed.
Below is a photo of all the Stamp Fairy gifts we received and the goodies we received when we first arrived.
It is a fantastic weekend away so if you would like the chance to come along next year, then sign up in my team and you could be joining us next year.
