Summer Card Camp - Week 1 {continued}

Hi everyone, I'm back again with a couple more cards from Summer Card Camp.  On Wednesday we saw some examples from other designers so I picked a few and used them as inspiration to continue working with this week's color combo.

My first card was inspired by Kelly Marie Alvarez's card.  I think she and I both share a love for this long vine stamp in the Lawn Fawn Blissful Botanicals set.  I decided to use it differently than I have before and emboss the image on colored paper rather than stamping and coloring the leaves in with markers.

The second card I made yesterday was inspired by Vicky Papaioannou's card.  She shared a technique using Distress Ink and then water on a background stamp to create a subtle pattern.  So I tried it with Distress Stain instead of Distress Ink.  I covered my cardstock piece with broken china Distress Stain then misted my Hero Arts Sweet Threads Spirals background and placed on the stained paper.  It worked! 

Thanks for checking out my blog today! Come back tomorrow for the Young Crafter's Unite Blog Hop! It's my first ever blog hop participation and I'm so excited.  There are prizes for hoppers involved so be sure to check it out.
Here is the website  the hop starts at noon CST tomorrow.  Hope to see you then!

Both cards are fabulous, Chari! My favourite is the first one. I love how the string criss-crosses across the vines!
