Stampin' Campers Project!

I can't believe it has been nearly a week since my last post!  You probably thought I'd fallen off the edge of the earth.  Actually I was finishing a novel called "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett.  If you are looking for a new book ... this is a great read!

On to today's post ...

Pictured below is what I would have to say was a favorite at today's Stamp Camp.  It's a gift card jacket with adorable 4x4 gift cards and envelopes inside!  Isn't it wonderful?  I found the "card jacket" idea on Laurie Schmidlin's blog.  She has step-by-step instructions and photo's too!  Mine was made from Basic Black, Crushed Curry, and Whisper White.  Others that were made today substituted Bermuda Bay or Melon Mambo for Crushed Curry.  They were so rich and gorgeous!

I used the filigree heart from our Always stamp set. Embossed it with Black Detail powder on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out. The black heart was created with a retired punch and paired with a Summer Sun Corduroy button tied with black hemp.

The sentiment is from Vintage Labels - a beautiful set available through our Sale-A-Bration event. Place an order with me for $50 in merchandise and you can choose this set or another of our SAB rewards - FREE! Just click on that little link to the left and you'll be taken directly to my website where you can place an order.

The DSP paper came from our Nouveau Chic collection.  Tres' chic, don't you think?  We used it to line the envelopes too!  Color coordinated polka dot grosgrain ribbon was matched to the In Color cardstock selection which "tied"  it all together (teehee ... a little pun there).  And if course the inside couldn't be left naked!  

For the gift card I used our Fresh Cuts Notes coupled with our 5-Petal Flower Punch.  It's all explained on an earlier post which you can access here ...

I hope you enjoyed today's project.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

Stop by tomorrow for a chance at some BLOG CANDY!  WAHOO!


  1. Love this project Joanne. I did see Laurie's post the other day, but I especially love your color theme. Great job!

  2. I love this! I would love to learn how to make one of these stationary folders! I might have to give it a try, thanks for sharing. The color combo is fabulous!
