Stamping Sisters Camp Winter 2021 - Day 1

If you are a follower on Barb's blog - YAY! I'm glad! - you noticed that this week is a special week. It's the Stamping Sisters Mini Card Camp Winter 2021. The camp lasts four days with a different teacher each day. The tutorials will be posted by the day's teacher each morning and we'll play along, giving our best for the tutorial that's presented. Barb went first and she has a FANTASTIC tutorial. WOW! I would have never thought to do this! Check it out on her blog - HERE.

Barb's tutorial calls for creating a background out of strips of varying widths of cardstock. I can do that.

I didn't have any strip dies, but that's okay... I just used my paper trimmer and cut my own strips. While Barb's card/s were monochromatic in nature, I chose three Stampin' UP! colors of different color families for my card - Pretty Peacock, Rococo Rose, and Sahara Sand.

Another thing that Barb did in her tutorial was stack her word sentiment/die. She cut three of them and glued them together to give it more depth. I thought that was a great idea... but it wasn't as easy as it sounds. LOL! I needed all the prayers I could get stacking that word three times.

I see a lot of potential for the techniques on this card and I did have a lot of fun attempting Barb's tutorial. Why not give it a try yourself?

Tomorrow's teacher is Darlene... I can't wait to see what she has in store for us. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Perfect--you get an A! Your card is so pretty--I love the colors you picked. And, yes, layering three times is a bit of a pain, but the look achieved is worth it. I am so glad you like the lesson today and your card is great. Thanks for playing along!

Wow, we're all in the front row today stacking up those A's! Woot! I promise not to pass you any notes in class because I'm too busy GAH-GAHing over your card! Such a beautiful color combo and what a wonderful sentiment - prayers are always awesome!

Wonderful card Jeanette - if you leave one layer of the word in the die and glue onto the back of it, you get a better result...
Stay safe
