I combined the beautiful patterned papers for my layers on this card… the papers in this card kit are amazing!! I especially love the ones in this collection! I stamped and colored my little camper using the following Copic markers ~ B0000, B00, B24, B52, RV10, RV21, N0, N2, N4, N7, and Y00. To finish off the card I added a few black rhinestones… they look like planets in the background!
I just love how the blues in the camper help the blues in the background paper to pop!! Glamping under the stars could definitely be my happy place… especially with this sweet little camper!!

Good Morning and Happy Thursday fellow crafters! Katie here from 2CrafyKaties to share with you a card using Kaisercraft “Wood Camping” Icons and Scrapping for Less Paper pack in collection #2 of this month’s FOTM kit!
Here is what I created:
First, I need to apologize.
Teresa and Kim have this AMAZING card kit and
they pack in a TON of goodies and I have been playing safe. I have not been using all the embellishment’s
in the kit. So, for my sneak I stepped
out of my comfort zone and used the Kaisercraft “Wood Camping” Icon pieces. I will admit that I scrap lifted the
idea/layout from Stacy (here). I also
used a die that did NOT come in the kit.
Hurry and grab this kit because it’s ADORABLE!
Good Morning and Happy Thursday fellow crafters! Katie here from 2CrafyKaties to share with you a card using Sunny Studio Stamps “Summer Picnic” and Echo Park’s 6x6 “Good Day Sunshine” paper pad! This month’s theme uses products that focus on celebrating the outdoors, nature, camping, and being under the stars!

I love sketches! I have a few favorites that I check out every week. As I was getting ready to create this card, I had no idea what I was going to make. Sketches to the rescue! I started (and finished) with Sketch Saturday #572!
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:

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.
Good Morning and Happy Thursday! Katie here from 2CrafyKaties to share with you TWO of my latest card using La-La Land Craft’s “Best Mates” stamp set and Doodle Bug Design 6x6 paper pad “Anchors aweigh”. But first I wanted to let you know that sometimes in life you need a break. I took a much needed 3-week break from all of my design teams. I am back and I feel refreshed and ready to create, so much so in fact that I have TWO cards to share with you!
Here is what I created:
I am a sketch girl.
I LOVE sketches.
I knew I was going to use this stamp set and this paper pad for my project. As I was looking at different sketches, I came across Tuesday’s Morning Sketch that posted on 06/12.
I knew this sketch would work! I had already stamped out the images (multiple times in fact) and cut them out using my Scan n’ Cut (LOVE this machine!) Next I looked through the paper pad to find two different types of paper to use. I ended up finding 2 sets of 2, so I figured, why not make two cards? Once I figured out my paper I started coloring, followed by cutting my paper to the right size, stamping my sentiment, and then gluing everything down.
Crystal here with a trio of cards using Lawn Fawn’s Lovable Legends stamp set! I thought it might be fun to share a trio of cards starting with a simple design and then building from that design to a slightly more involved card design.
My first card started with a simple stenciled background using the Echo Park Good Vibes Stripe stencil along with the Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink that I blended over the stencil. Once my background was done, I die cut it with a wonky rectangle die. I then cut a 1″ strip of the beautiful Watercolor Foil paper from Pink & Main and fussy cut the little flag end on one side. I adhered it to the panel and then trimmed off the excess.
I stamped the super cute sentiment directly on the panel and then adhered the entire panel to a white card base. I stamped the bigfoot character three times and decided for my card design… he’d be a cute yeti so I colored him very simply with the following Copic markers ~ N0, N1, N2, B0000, B00, Colorless Blender. I fussy cut my cute yeti and popped him up on the card.
So that is my first card design… pretty simple, right?! But still adorable!!
For my next card, to add a little somethin’ somethin’ and bring it up a step from simple, I decided to blend the background using distress oxide inks. I used Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. I then blended Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink over the same Good Vibes Stripe stencil that I used on the first card. I love the subtle stripes it made on the background! I die cut the panel with the same wonky rectangle die and adhered it directly on a white card base. I adhered a strip of the Watercolor Foil paper just like the first card, but this time I stamped the sentiments on scraps of white card stock. I used a banner die to cut out the ‘Have An’ sentiment and fussy cut the ‘Unbelievable Birthday’. I adhered both sentiments directly to the card. I popped up the cute yeti and to finish off this card I added a couple of trees that I stamped from the same set using green inks in my stash. I love how the Watercolor Foil paper breaks up the strips of the background and the foil in the paper adds a pretty shine for interest.
Are you ready for the third and final card… ?!
Whatcha think?! I’m a little partial to the background on this one because I love splatter!! I created the background the very same as the second card, but I added water and white acrylic paint splatters. I adhered the strip of Watercolor Foil paper and the top sentiment directly to the card, but I popped up the bottom sentiment using foam tape. I adhered more trees to surround Mr. Yeti… huh, just decided to name him… LOL! I also popped up the two trees on the far right. My final touch to finish this card was to add some random dots to the trees using a white gel pen… almost like snow falling on the trees from the splatter in the background.
Here’s a picture showing all of the cards together. I had a bunch of fun making these cards to share with you… I hope that you’ve enjoyed seeing the different steps in adding interest and dimension to the cards! I hope this inspires you to try different levels of cardmaking!!
