Christmas Stamp Camp Projects


This past Saturday, I held a Christmas Stamp Camp. Everyone had a great time. Here are the projects that we made.


Snowman Pop-Up card:
Stamp Sets: Punch Pals, Many Merry Messages
Ink: Jet-Black Staz-On, Basic Gray, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive & Soft Suede Stampin' Write markers
Paper: Old Olive (4-1/4"x11", strip for punched circle); Cherry Cobbler (2-3/4"x5-1/4"); Whisper White (2-1/2"x5")
Accessories: Chunky Essentials glitter, Tombow Multi-Purpose glue, Crop-a-Dile, 1-3/8" Circle punch, Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Seam Binding, Paper Trimmer w/scoring blade, Hobby Blade, Sticky Strip Adhesive, Stamp-a-ma-jig

This great card/gift card holder idea came from Lynn Pratt. You can find her fall inspired card here: http://stampndesign.blogspot.com/2010/10/french-foliage-gift-card-holder.html
I simply took her idea and changed the "ribbon" which is actually some of the new Deck The Halls Designer fabric from the Holiday Mini Catalog, and the stamped image on top. It's from the Christ Is Born stamp set and the "Merry Christmas" is from the Come to Bethlehem stamp set. A little Gold Glow Smooch Spritz gives the final touch!

Here's the inside.


The final project we made was this cute little matchbox with an assortment of Christmas tags. It's made using the Sizzix Big Shot, Match Box die, and the Jumbo Stampin' Around wheel, Jolly Jingles. The tags were made using the stamp set Tags til Christmas. Both the wheel and the stamp set are found in the Holiday Mini Catalog. A bit of Early Espresso 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain ribbon and 1/2" Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding finish it all off. Oh, and I don't want to forget the little tag on the box. It's made using the Tiny Tags stamp set and the Medium Jewelry tag punch.
