Now that Stamp Camp is over, it is a let down not to have to be working on Stamp Camp stuff every free minute. It was a HUGE success!! Everyone was very pleased with everything.
So here is a picture of the three forces behind the whole endeavor -
Deby Scott is on the far left. She's our pastor's wife and a great stamper! Roxanne (Roxy) Stevens is in the middle. She is a fabulous card maker. That's me - Kathy Gerace - on the right.
I'm not supposed to call us the "instigators" or the "co-conspirators", but that's about what we are!!
Each bag had a winter design wheeled across near the bottom. Then the bag was Spritzed.
Name tags were stamped and cut out with a Deckled Rectangle Nestie. There is a tiny candle in the lower right corner of the tag that was colored with a cream shimmer paint, red, yellow and green Copics. Kim, another stamping lady, did all the names in her beautiful calligraphy.
As everyone entered the area where we were set up, they saw the tables all decorated with pine garlands, ornaments (one for each person), cups of M&M's and Hershey Kisses and small candy canes.
When special techniques were required, the three of us (D, R, & K) did one on one instructions. There was a huge variety of techniques to be tried.
Here are random pictures from around the room.
Here is a very happy Justina showing off one of
her completed cards.
Of course we had to have a break for lunch! Our church is blessed to have a group of ladies and gents who do baking and cooking for special functions like our Stamp Camp and for refreshments after church every Sunday.
They put on a lunch fit for a queen for us. There were turkey salad sandwiches, macaroni salad, fruit kabobs, chips, punch and a dessert too pretty to eat - a chocolate boat filled with cream, topped with whipped cream and a candy cane.
All in all we had a very successful stamp camp and were very pleased how well everything came together.
Thank you for staying with me for such a long, long post. I have lots more pictures, but these really show best what we were doing. It was so much fun! Most of the ladies asked if we would be doing this again next year. Of course we are!!!!!
