Summer Card Camp 2: Cards #22 & 23



I thought the Summer Card Camp 2 class was finished. Imagine my delight when this morning, as a wrap up, we got some new colour combos and sketches to play with!

I made two cards this afternoon, using this last colour combo, for the Waltzingmouse Pyjama Party that's taking place this evening.


My first card uses the 2nd Sketch shared today in class, along with the colour combo, and is for the WMS In the Background challenge. I used my WMS woodgrain background stamp in soft stone. Then I layered some of my My Island image and sentiment stamps. Some PTI buttons and Lawn Fawn twine finish it off.


My next card is for the Tickle Me Silly challenge. I used the same colour combo (but no sketch this time) with my WMS Fancy Feathers stamp set. I cut out the feathers by hand and layered them over some PTI double-ended banner diecuts, stamped with a sentiment from WPlus9's Fresh Cut Florals stamp set.


Thanks for looking!

Love, love love these creations Leigh. Your sunshine card is stunning in these awesome colors and the light wood grain background makes your focal image POP.

Your feather card is equally as stunning with your stitching and ghosted feather background stamping. Fabulous job with today's Pajama Party!

Love the pink and yellow colors on both of your wonderful cards - love the sun and pretty buttons - and you beautiful feathers - both layered and stamped! Thanks for joining the WMS PJ party with us!

Beautiful! I love that wood grain stamp! I also love how you've done that second card, with the feathers stamped softly in gray, which draws the eye down to the bottom of the card, then back up,
