The summer camp is coming to an end, it has been a lot of fun! I am so impressed with all the beautiful cards in the Student Gallery and so happy to have been a part of this.

The idea for this card came to me before I saw the colors and then to my surprise the colors worked beautifully with my idea. I designed the balloon from a picture I saw and cut out a pattern, which I finished the raw edges with ribbon. The hardest part of this card for me was what to say. In the end I just had to put something and I liked the feeling of being Free!

Week 3 Card and Envelope

 It is already the third week of this great Card Camp. I have been so enjoying seeing all the beautiful cards made by the committee and all the class members.

This week I am using Jennifer's technique she calls “fingerinking.” I enjoyed making this card the best so far. I really liked the colors the best and designed the card more like my usual style.
You just barely see the envelope that I stamped to match. First time I have ever done that! Next I will show you the inside of the card, I went all the way this time!

Week 2 Card

This is my second stab at making a card based on colors. This is a completely new concept for me and it does not feel natural. So I am having problems. But I know I can work through them!

This is this weeks colors:
Here is my card, the back ground stamp is Hero Arts and the rest are cutouts. My goal was to use the colors and also have something that had a large focal point.
