Stamp Camp Leftovers and Card Giveaway!

Hey there! It's Tuesday morning and it's time to announce the winner of this card! Remember, if you left a comment before last evening at 8 pm, your name would go in a drawing to win! My dh has picked a name out of a hat and the WINNER is........... Stacy Stec!
Congratulations Stacy! I'll be delivering the card to you in person! (Since you live just around the corner! LOL!)
Be sure to watch for more contests like this - you could win next time!

No, I'm not talking about FOOD, silly - leftover supplies! Whenever my camps are over for the month, I try and make time to use up the leftover cut supplies on cards for MY card box - which, I confess, sometimes runs bare.

If you were here last week, you will recognize the stamped focal image as the one I used to demonstrate 2-step Stampin' with the Wild Rose stamp set. You guys were sweet and didn't use it for your own card (heehee) so I got to create something new with it. (Did you know that Stampin' Up! created the use of 2 Step Stampin'?)

This card was so simple to make (well, cuz the stamping was already done, but I digress...) I simply took Chocolate Chip cardstock and folded it in half for my base. Then I adhered a cut piece of the Groovy Guava Designer Series Paper (*see note at bottom of this post) to the front.

The ribbon is the Chocolate Chip Satin from the Theatre Ribbon Originals - I just tied it around the front of the card and knotted it on the right side. The stamped roses are layered onto Wild Wasabi cardstock and all are sponged with Chocolate Chip ink.

Using both the Large and Small Oval Punches (love me some punches!) I created the greeting with the Short and Sweet stamp set. The rose layer is popped up on dimensionals, as are the greeting ovals.

Do you like it? Leave me a comment before Monday evening, June 9th at 8 pm est. and tell me what you like about this card. I will draw a random name from the comments submitted and send you the card!

*Just a note about Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi and the other 4 In-Colors for 2007-08: Remember, that these wonderful colors are ONLY around until the END of this current Idea Book and Catalog. Sometime towards the END OF JULY, SU! will release the list of RETIRING ACCESSORIES AND COLOR PRODUCTS. Based on last year's experience with the In-Colors, those items with the In-Colors in them will probably be the first to disappear from the list. The Retiring Accessories list is 1st come, 1st served and DOES SELL OUT - unlike the stamp set list. If you are loving these colors, please make sure you have sufficient supplies ie.cardstock, ink pads, ink refills and Designer Series Paper BEFORE the list is released in July. That is the only way I can guarantee that you will get the products you need.

Remember, too that ANY orders of $50 or more in June qualify for my Hawaii 5-0 product drawing at the end of the month!

Happy Thursday everyone!


  1. i love this card because of its simplistic beauty. making the card similar to this one at stamp camp last week made me realize how nice the Groovey Guava color really is; i hated it before! Also, i just adore the Chocolate Chip Satin ribbon - makes me want some real chocolate! :)

  2. Robin,

    This card is beautiful and I'd have left a comment even without the bribe! (hee hee!) There's something about that wide ribbon that's so gorgeous! Great color combo...I may just have to CASE ya!

  3. This was my favorite card from stamp camp! I love how the colors work with each other, and I LOVE how the designer paper looks like an antique or grandma's wall paper. I'm still holding on to the one that I have... It's so special, I'm not sure who to send it to!

  4. Robin,
    I love the color combination for this card. My favorite part is the ribbon - I love the rich, deep color, the satiny look, and the width! Can I say I like it better than the card we made at camp?!?! :-)

  5. I can't believe I just read this at 8:14pm!! I missed it by 14 minutes, I love the card, and I'll be checking back more often for neat surprises! Thanks Robin~
