In a previous post, I mentioned our group of stampers has had an annual stamp camp focusing on Christmas cards and giftables. This throwback goes back to our 6th Annual Christmas in the Woods Stamp Camp. My friend and sometime co-designer, Cheyenne Luken, would help me prepare for this event for more than one stamp camp. As a thank you gift, I would make her something special. She really likes 3D projects; so, I found a tutorial on Inking Idaho and made her a purse along with a set of cards to go with it.

She was really excited to receive this set as a gift. I enjoyed making the set because I tend to like 3D projects that are challenging. Here are several pictures of the finished project:

My group of stampers has had a yearly event called “Christmas in the Woods” Stamp Camp. The last few years we have held the stamp camp in November, but when we first started out, the stamp camps were held either in September or October. We spend Friday night, all day Saturday and into the night creating Christmas cards, 3D projects, along with games and prizes for everyone, and Sunday we head home very exhausted.

Each stamper receives a Christmas card from me. This card was given to the attendees at the Third Annual Christmas in the Woods stamp camp. I still have this stamp set. And . . . . here it is:

3rd Annual stamp campI love this stamp set. This card was colored with stampin’ write markers with some sponging. Hope you enjoy this throwback!

Let’s travel back to July of 2011, July 24th to be exact. It’s my amiga y hermana Bris’ birthday. Cheyenne, Bris, and I make each other REALLY nice cards (meaning detailed) as a birthday present (to a stamper/papercrafter this is a BIG deal).

I wanted to make Bris a really fun card that included the three of us going somewhere. Somewhere away from house cleaning, bills, laundry, animals, children, ……… I know what you’re thinking and I’m not going to say it, but you know I left something out of the list. This does not include a tub full of Calgon. LOL

I had seen a variation of this card on a website (no, I don’t remember where, but the gal had some awesome paper pieced cards). So, out came the punches, paper, and inks. Punch, punch, cut,cut,cut, sponge, sponge, glue, glue, and there you have it! We’re riding in a HOT red sports car an unknown tropical location (obviously, no palm trees in North Georgia). No matter where we are, if it’s the three of us, we’re laughing the whole way there and back.


I really love this card! 🙂
