Stamping Sisters Mini Card Camp - #1

Have you heard? There's a new adventure this week - thanks to Kelly (of the Sandcastle Stamper blog). This week should be camping adventures (for her son and other Scouts), VBS, and more. BUT -- we're still in the throngs of staying home as much as possible and so many things have been canceled. 

We need a fun diversion. 

Kelly suggested Stamping Sisters Mini Card Camp to a couple of us and we all jumped in the deep end... Oh, no! That's not right. We all readily agreed. What's that mean?

For today and the next three days, the four of us will be presenting a lesson and the others will make a card according to the lesson that day. There are no grades... and this camp is FREE. So.... why not join the fun and play along with us.

Here's the schedule of camp counselors (giggling) so you can check out the right blog early each morning to see what the lesson of the day is just click on the name and it will take you right to her blog...

Kelly - Today (Monday) 
Darlene - Tomorrow (Tuesday)
Me - Wednesday
Barb - Thursday

So, Kelly's lesson today is... 

C.A.M.P. - Bold Color, No Color

We are to use items beginning with the letters C.A.M.P. on our cards... and the background is to be bold/colorful, while the images are to be uncolored.

Here's my CAMP specifics:

C - Copper (the brads)
A - Apricot Appeal CS
M - Magnolias
P - Paint (the background was made with paint on black CS)

Be sure to check out Kelly's blog, Darlene's blog, and Barb's blog to see their C.A.M.P. - Bold Color, No Color cards, too.

This card is stunning--I love the background. It is so pretty and the flower is so pretty too.

So pretty - and a lovely flower to showcase, too! I do love the smell of a fresh magnolia - great card, Jeanette!
