Summer Card Camp 2011 Week 3

This weeks card camp colors were a challenge for me. I usually do not use more than one neutral color at a time, but when I saw the cards that Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner made, I had to try working with those colors. The cards pictured here on this post are what I came up with for this week.

These cards have also been entered into the Hero Arts Monthly challenge. For details on how to enter, please go here.
I made this card for my friend who had knee surgery a few days ago. Hope that it cheers her up. The stamps used are Hero Arts: Earth Flowers CL428, Everyday Sayings CL342, the butterflies come the Friends Stamp Set CL351. This is also an inspiration from Jennifer McGuire's card from Tuesday's video at card camp.

This is another inspiration from Jennifer McGuire. I used her same design, but with different stamps. The stamps used are Hero Arts: Two Birds CG152, Dots & Flowers S5213, and Thinking of You CL140. The panel is a Labels 17 die by Spellbinders.

I turned the Three Sunflowers stamp S5420 into a silhouette image by going over it with Walnut Stain distress in using a blender pen. This also is an inspiration by Jennifer McGuire. The other stamps that I used are: Thinking of You CL140, Music Background CG222.

The background panel was stamped with the Large Butterfly stamp CG200. I inked the stamp with soft brown shadow ink and then I inked the edges with Memories Ruby ink and stamp on the paper. Each butterfly was individually stamped. The sentiment comes from The Best Gifts stamp set CG282.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments. Have a wonderful day and God bless.

Wow Sue -I envy how many pretty cards you were able to create! I particularly love the last two! I'm really partial to silhouette images so I like how you were able to turn the Three Sunflowers stamp into one! And I adore the design of the last one - great use of the color combo too!

I adore your pretty cards Sue! You really took a lot out of this week's camp! I struggled a lot with this colour combo but you made some awesome cards!
