Hey, everyone! My family spent this past week at the lake, so it’s super fitting that this month’s theme from Scrapping for Less is camping and outdoors!
The Winston’s Lake House stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs is SO cute! There are so many cute scene building stamps! I almost went with a lake scene – but the little bear and cabin images just spoke to me!
This card came together super quickly with just a bit of masking! I stamped my sentiment first and then the bear image. When masking it’s important to remember to stamp whatever image you want to be in front first! I stamped the bear image onto masking paper and cut it out with scissors and placed it over my original stamped image and stamped my lake house. When I removed the masking paper it looks like the lake house is set behind the little bear! I used my Spectrum Noir Triblend markers to color them in.
I didn’t to much to embellish the card – just some gems and clear glitter! Check out my video below!
Be sure to check out the video for all the details HERE!
I started out by using the background stamp on the Tim Holtz Travel Platform with Hero Arts Inks in Ombre Mint to Green, Soft Purple, Soft Pool, Pool, and Deep Ocean and layered the colors stamping multiple times.
Next, I used the solid tree stamp in the Critter Campout set to create a tree line and then used the Scan N Cut DX to cut the image out with black cardstock. I used a piece of blue mulberry and blue vellum from Die Cuts with A View, they were old mat stacks I had in my stash, and a piece of green cardstock I cut them down to fit within the scene and layered the vellum over the mulberry. I cut out a border on the green cardstock for the border of the lake and grass and I stamped the grass outline with Lucky Clover Distress Oxide ink all over. I cut the sky background down to 5 1/4 in. X 4 in. and glued all of the pieces down to create the scene.
I colored a couple of the critters and the campfire from the stamp set with Studio 71 markers and used the Scan N Cut to cut them out. Then glued them onto the scene. I glued the panel to a black card base. I used two of the stickers from the Paper House “At the Lake” sticker set for the sentiment on the inside and front panel. To finish it off I used the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen on all of the stars in the sky and then to create a pooling effect in the water.
Hey there crafty friends! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with an adorable card using the sweetest little camper set called Happy Camper from Pink & Main. I paired this sweet set with the beautiful Galaxy Foil papers also from Pink & Main… these two products were literally made for each other!!
I’ve been wanting to make a long card… one that will fit in a #10 envelope. I love to change things up sometimes and this size of card is fun to play with! I started with a 8-1/2 x 11″ piece of kraft card stock. I trimmed it down to 8-1/2 x 8″ and then on the 8″ side, I scored it right in the middle at 4″… giving me a 8-1/2 x 4″ card base. A #10 envelope is actually larger, measuring at 4-1/8 x 9-1/2″ so you could actually make a larger card if you’d like. This was just the size I decided to go with.
I had my card base and I had picked out my Galaxy Foil paper… but then I realized my paper was only 6″ so how do I make a long card with this short patterned paper. Well, I found that Gina K.’s Plum Punch card stock coordinated with the Galaxy Foil paper and that helped to fill in the rest of my background. And to finish off my scene, I die cut some Gina K. Grass Green card stock using the Grassy Border die from Lawn Fawn. I then adhered my grass layers to the plum card stock being sure to not glue down the top layer of grass blades so I could tuck in my car and camper.
Speaking of… how adorable is this car and camper!! They were so much fun to color!! I love all the scallops and swirls… so fun!! There are so many cute images in this set too! I just love that little backpack… it reminded me of a denim backpack that I had as a kid so I colored it to look like it, except mine was green. 🙂 How cute is that sentiment ‘Happy trails!’… I thought this would be a cute card to send to someone going out on an adventure maybe camping or taking an RV around the country seeing all the sights!
Oh my goodness… these adorable bears!! I love their cute faces! I had a blast coloring them too. They look ready to enjoy some camping fun. And that crown on the glamping girl bear… love!!!
I finished off the card with some kraft twine… it filled in that empty space in that top right corner… and I think it fits with the whole camping/outdoors theme. I used a bunch of Copic markers to color in the images… here they are:
Good Morning and Happy Thursday fellow crafters! Katie here from 2CrafyKaties to share with you a card using Sunny Studio Stamps “Summer Picnic”! This month’s theme uses products that focus on celebrating the outdoors, nature, camping, and being under the stars!
Here is what I created:
I was once again inspired by a Jennifer McGuire video. This video is about “Bridge Cards.” This is a free-standing card that can display a scene or a message/sentiment. I used a cloud die to create a cloud like stencil and I used the Ranger Distress ink “Stormy Sky” to created clouds on the card base. I had pre-stamped my images and cut them out with my Brother Scan n’ Cut. After the card base was finished, I used the “Peeled Paint” Ranger Distress ink to create a grassy area. I colored all my images with copic markers (listed below) and then assembled.
I stamped the images onto the Bo Bunny patterned paper and then cut them out with my Brother Scan n Cut. You certainly could easily fussy cut these out as well.
I used a cloud stencil and Distress Oxide ink onto Bristol card stock to make the sky. The rest of the card was very easy to assemble. I just layered up pattern paper for the blue “lake” layer and green “ground” layer. The trees are glued down flat but the tents are popped up on foam adhesive.
I used a warm gray copic marker to give a tiny bit of shadow and dimension to the tents. I stamped the sentiment and called it good.
It makes me think of the cabin on the lake we rent for a week in mid-July up in northern Minnesota. This photo is from the front yard of our cabin. Isn’t that just paradise?
For us Minnesotans, relaxing at the lake is our idea of heaven! What is your favorite way to relax on vacation?

Hey, there! It’s Lynnea! I’m so excited about this month’s theme from Scrapping for Less – Under the Stars! I created a cute little critter campfire scene! And scroll down to see the video!
I this this little scene is super cute, don’t you?! I started by cutting down some patterned papers from the Photoplay Campfire & Lakeside 6 x 6 patterned paper pad for my background. I fell in LOVE with the star background paper as soon as I saw it! And I love using patterns as grass. I think it makes things super fun! I stamped and colored the critters from the Lawn Fawn Love You S’more stamp set. I also stamped a bunch of trees for my background!
Once I had everything cut out I started assembling my card. I tucked the trees behind the patterned paper foreground and popped up my campfire and critters. I stamped my sentiment with brown ink and trimmed the ends to banner edges.
A bit of glitter over my critters and randomly in the starry background finished off my card! I hope you enjoy the video!
Hey there crafty friends! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with a cute card using the most adorable owl stamp set I think I’ve seen in a long time!! This adorable set is from Heffy Doodle and it’s called Hootiful… so cute! I love these cute owls and there are a bunch of wonderful sentiments in the stamp set too!!
So, normally I would have created my very own galaxy background but for this card I didn’t have to! I used the fabulous Galaxy Foil papers from Pink & Main!! These papers are so beautiful and the colors are absolutely dreamy!! And it made for another quick card design which I am always looking for!! I knew I wanted to create a scene using the papers for my background so I die cut the papers with a large stitched oval die and set it aside.
I stamped a bunch of these adorable owls with Memento Tuxedo black ink and then colored them with the following Copic markers:
I colored around the edges of each of the fussy cut images with a Memento Tuxedo black marker. I set them all aside and then started building my card base. I die cut a piece of black card stock with a large stitched rectangle die and adhered it to a kraft card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″. I then adhered the entire card front to a white card base.
I just needed to build my scene… I adhered the oval die cut Galaxy Foil paper directly to the black card stock layer. I adhered the owl landing on the branch and then adhered the branch over top. I also adhered the moon… all of these were adhered with Multi Medium Matte directly to the galaxy background. I then popped up the flying owl and the owl near the bottom right side using foam squares. I then stamped the sentiment with VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed a fine white embossing powder. I die cut the sentiment with a banner die, trimmed it down, and popped it up on the card. I really love how this turned out! I hope you do too!
