Camp Cards for Theme Week

This week's theme at the girls' camp is "County Fair'.  I had the perfect paper for cards to match this theme: SEI's A Fair Day. I just love the soft, cotton candy colors of this paper! I think these will be a big hit with my girls:
Supplies Used:
Paper: SEI
Stamps: TSOL sampler2love, happyBday2you, flipflops2stamp
Other: Open Scallop Edger Punch, embroidery floss

On this card, I made a little cotton candy using TSOL's popcorn2stamp & crazy4daisies sets.

At any rate, here are the two cards I made recently:

Flip-it Card

The Splitcoaststampers' Die Cut Swing Card Tutorial inspired me to give this flip-card thing a try. I know there are many flip-card dies out there to make it easy, but I'm not sure if I like them enough to invest. So I thought I'd try the DIY version, but I had to go and make it more complicated by changing the dimensions of the card. I prefer 4 1/2 x 6 cards, so I started with a card base of 6 x 6. I picked up the dp at the local fabulous scrapbook store, Memories & Beyond.  I'm entering it into the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Anything Goes even though my card is more green than blue, but I thought it was close enough. Once again, it took way too long to make, but that was because I had to practice to get the dimensions right. Then I realized that there wasn't much room to write....ugh! This just may be my one-and-only flip-it card:

Supplies Used:
Paper: Prima
Stamps: Power Poppy, TSOL (inside sentiment)
Dies: Nestabilities Labels Four, Rose Creations
Other: Copics, gems
