Stamp Camp Projects

I'm running behind a little bit with the Stampin Up! stuff. Ive been busy doing a lot of nothing this summer. Time is just flying by. Better late than never, I guess.

Sophia's Cake Topper

I made another cake topper. This is my 3rd topper made this summer. This one is going on Sophia's birthday cake. After a few trials, I decided that a small/ desert paper plate would work great for the base.
I hot glued decorative tissue streamer paper toback of plate to make a ruffle edge.

I drew a monogram S template ( I made myself) and traced onto pink cardstock. I hand cut it out and glued to green polka dot paper. I then glued the paper to center of small cake paper plate. I then added puffy paint 'dots' around plate edge. Finally, I attached two straws at bottom so that it goes into cake.  Easy!


Bow Wow Wow...

Meet the newest members of our family, Stella the English Bulldog (Bully) 13 wks, and Harlow
the French Bulldog (Frenchie) 9 wks.

As you can see they are the cutest things. They have adapted pretty well and have become pretty good friends. Now we just have to get that potty training accomplished. Ughh...


Pink Polka Dot Birthday

Our last birthday of the summer is this week- my youngest, Sophia, will be 11. Wow! If I didn't live with her and see her growing before me everyday I would not believe it. She's growing up so fast! My husband and I were just talking about this the other night. He's been out of town off and on all summer and he thought she looked taller and older than when he left. She's definitely growing fast, but not as fast as it seems.  
Let the party planning begin! She is having a couple girlfriends over and we will take them to a local pro softball game in Akron. Although she is a tomboy, she picked pink and green polka dots for her birthday theme/ colors. I was so excited to get started on simple but fun party invitations. I found adorable  polka dot plates, napkins, and crepe paper streamers. I also found coordinating colors table cloth, vases, baskets, candles, balloons, and all the trimmings. It'll be cute!

   I kept it simple and Cased the layout for the invites from here . I paper pieced a large bold cupcake image from DoodleFactory or here I think their stamps are very unique and kinda crazy! I love the big bold images.
I used  SU! #101055 Crystal Effects on the cherry to add 3D lacquered look.
My daughter picked out the small plastic baskets for party favors for her guests. She thought they would be awesome to hold various nail polishes on a dresser in their rooms. I thought that was a nice idea- although I would have preferred a handmade bag. We found the baskets in the dollar spot at Target. We filled each with various candies, and items like: jump ropes  polka dot beach balls, mini hair brush and mirror for their purses/ book bags, and lip glosses.

I made coordinating tags for each basket using the same cupcake image and papers. I used the polka dot crepe paper streamers to make a ruffle on the bottom of the tag. I think the guests will like them. I know I would have at that age. Have a great weekend.


Way 2 Go!

Here's a cute Graduation card I made for one of the many graduate's parties we were invited to this summer.
I paper pieced the bold image scooter from Paper Smooches I covered the existing flag with  a hand cut flag using a sentiment from SU!
 I love it!


Butterfly Softness

I totally cased this from a card I found here. Its a great way to use up
scraps or dig into your new stash of  washi tape. I love the strips of color.Its a 
really easy layout. I whipped up a few of these in less than 10 minutes. 

I used #118138 Beautiful Wings Embosslits and #119246 Rhinestones along with various patterned paper scraps to complete.



 I used a set called CHILLAX by Taylored Expressions to create a birthday card and matching gift tag for a friend. I found this fun black and green margarita themed paper at a local craft store and knew I had to have a couple sheets- it was screaming my name- so to speak. To pull it all together I found a striped green bag, added black tissue paper, and tied the tag on with black polka dot ribbon.

I used prima pencils/ markers and Copic markers to color. I inked edges of image portion using Old Olive (SU! #126951) and White Uniball Signo pen ( SU! # 105021) for highlighting accents.


Mini Milk Carton Party Favors

Mini Milk Carton Bigz Die #117310 $32.95
I cut out each box in retired pixie pink. Attached 1" black and white animal print paper strips.
Stamped 'open here' at top from Got Treats stamp set.

Used 'extra stick' two sided tape to assemble boxes.
I usually use  Sticky Strip #104294 $6.95 but ran out and a friend told me about
another similar tape (Scor-tape) made by ScorPal. Its pretty good stuff!
I use Snail Adhesive #104332 $6.95 to attach ribbon to back of carton then
bring around to frint then tie. It works great doing it that way.

Each box was filled with Skittles.
I stamped each image onto white paper using marker coloring technique. I love this technique on solid images like the images in this set. For those of you that color with the Stampin' Write markers, don't forget to 'huff' or exhale on the stamp after coloring to re- moisten them prior to stamping.  I then mounted the stamped and circle punched image on a black scalloped circle.
I cut verse from bottom and attached over cupcake image.
