Hooray for Mommy Camp

I want to thank Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire for creating this awesome "summer camp for mom's"!

This is just the kind of thing I need to stay focused on card making during the summer, while the kids are home!  The colors above are the colors to inspire us while we create.  I love them!
Here is what I made:


Not too fancy...I wanted to keep it simple. All stamps and buttons are Papertrey Ink. Bright pink and orange cs are also PTI.  White cs, purple and aqua cs are Recollections. I used Hero Arts black ink for the sentiment and VersaMark and Stampendous embossing powder for the bee and branches.
Now, I want to look at all the lovely creations and post some comments!

I can't wait for next week's class!

Thanks for peeking!

Michelle

I LOVE this card! It's so simple, but still has that WOW factor. Love how you embossed the leaf image in white to tie all the colors together. And the white space for the sentiment is perfect. Definitely going to put your card in my inspiration folder. Great job!

Very cute! Love the stamp over the colored paper! Great job and congrats on the student spotlight!

Michelle Lupton said...

I'm glad your card was chosen as one of the spotlight cards - as I went through the gallery myself, I kind of decided which cards I would chose - and yours was one of them! So I was quite pleased to see it in Kristina's list :) And yours was one of the few to stick to the colour scheme without adding in extra colours ;)

Stella said...

Oh my Michelle; you really have outdone yourself with a card which turned out CAS and with a subtle touch of elegance. And I already told you: CAS also means chic and stunning:)Into my favorites folder it goes. Another jaw dropper from you; love it!
Hugs,
Stella
