Samples from the NH Stamp Camp

Here are a few more of the cards done at the NH stamp camp. This first one was done after we went to a really nice little store in Concord. They carried all the stamp companies you don't see in the bigger chains. This Outline stamp comes from the company of the same name. The stamps are really interesting to play with. 
Stamp: Outlines, Su Itty bitty backgrounds
Paper: SU Marigold, Banana, Apricot, Rust, Ruby
Ink: Same as paper plus black
Accessories: SU markers, crystals, dimensionals

This next card was a SCS challenge SC182.
really like this size and this challenge is great for using scraps. I have so many I don't ever think I will find the bottom. We spent one whole afternoon sponging inks that match, and chalk inks  all over the strips.  This gives the strips of paper a custom dye look. Then we stamped over the top of the sponging in white or in a monochromatic color scheme. Any stamp will work. I used so many different ones I lost track!
Stamp: Stampendous, Scenic Lavender
PTI, Mixed Messages
Paper: SU mustard, artichoke, black, vanilla
Ink: Same as papers 
Accessories: Water color crayons, black brads, dimensionals.

This last card today uses many of the strips I made. It really is like what we used to do when quilting with strips.
I found making the strips very relaxing. Now I need to use them all up! New challenge for the next week or two before school preparation begins in earnest. I will try to use as many of the treated scraps as possible. Kate even listed a challenge on Splitcoast.

Off to put another grandchild to bed! Have a great evening.

Nice cards! I tried to get some of that creative genius to rub off by osmosis or humidity, but I don't think it worked! Beautiful cards as usual!
