Awesome Stamp Camp card

I'll talk about this really cool card we made at stamp camp in a second, but fist I want to give a shout out to Glenda Travelstead, my uber cool Up-up-upline, who works tirelessly to put this event on for us every month and gosh darn it if she doesn't keep coming up with great new stuff for us to make! And this time not only did she design and prepare materials for all the projects, schlep all the materials plus some demo organization container orders to the stamp camp for us to pick up, and keep us all in high spirits throughout the camp, she also helped us make our cards. You see, the really cool card required sewing, and Glenda not only brought her sewing machine along, but also sewed the card for anyone who was just too intimidated by a non-familiar sewing machine (like me!) to try to do it themselves. It's hard to believe, I know, so I'm posting visual proof. Here's Glenda helping me with my card!

And here is the card itself. WOW - right? I admit, I would not make these for just anyone. This card has several components and is actually quite complicated, involving tricky cuts, background stamping, sponging and watercolor wonder crayons. But just look at the end result! It takes your breath away, doesn't it? When you're done with this card all you can think about is how special you're going to make its recipient feel. And you really feel like an artist, too!
This card uses the both way blossoms hostess set that is due to retire at the end of June. The only way to get this stamp set is to host an at-home party or a catalog workshop. I still have a few dates available on my calendar for June, but time is running out. Check out my web site, call or e-mail me (stampwithdiane@comcast.net) for more information.
