September’s Stamp Camp Trio

September’s Stamp Camp had three new designs.  The first in traditional colours with a contemporary design (thank you Connie Stewart for the inspiration!)  The second card featured a glitter encrusted tree in delicious Midnight Muse and Soft Sky card and finally the mellow greens of Always Artichoke and Pear Pizzazz with a silver embossed ornament just popping off the card.

October’s Camp brings three more designs, two are complete – the third is still on the drawing board.  October’s camp is on the 18th and 19th ~ you choose the  date that works for you – call me for more details and to reserve your place.

The tree image was covered with the multipurpose adhesive sheet then dazzling diamonds glitter poured over the sticky surface. It gives a nice even coating of ‘bling’ and once stuck down ~ is going no where!
