Strength & Hope Stamp Camp Extravaganza Part 3

There's a funny story behind this card.  I saw it on Kelly Acheson's blog just a few short hours before I was scheduled to go to Cate's house for a Strength & Hope stamp camp.  Cate was gracious enough to open her home for my stamp camp.  Anyhow, I wrote to Kelly and told her how excited I was to see this card design and felt compelled to use it.  

I just love Basic Gray and Rose Red together.  (After looking at Kelly's blog, it seems that she used Cherry Cobbler.  But I didn't have Cherry Cobbler seam binding.  That's how I chose the Rose Red.)  This card also features the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch.

Okay, I wrote in my last post that I was going to feature River Rock.  But I still can't get over how great Crumb Cake looks with Marina Mist.  This color combination is one of my favorites.  The following cards use those two colors in the same layout.


I used this card as the make 'n take for a few July workshops.  I think everyone liked it.  This card also stayed in the line-up for my fourth and final stamp camp : )

Stamps: Strength & Hope
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Rose Red/Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Marina Mist, Soft Suede
Ink: Basic Gray. Rose Red/Crumb Cake, Marina Mist
Accessories: Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch, Crumb Cake/Rose Red seam binding

Happy stamping!
