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!
Here is what I created:
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!
For the month of July the theme is Under the Stars. We are celebrating nature and camping, spending time with Mother Nature.
Tomorrow my husband, my daughter, my mother and father in law and myself are headed “Up North” for our annual vacation. I live in Southeast Minnesota. We rent a cabin at a small family owned resort in a lake in Central Northern Minnesota, approximately an hour from the Canadian Border. The “boys” spend their days fishing and the “girls” hang out by the cabin and enjoy the relaxation.
This is a picture of my husband (right) and my father in law (left) with their catch.
So I thought I would turn this set of stickers by Paper House into a cute sign for our cabin and leave it there as a thank you gift to the resort owners. They are super sweet people who go out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

I really had so much fun with this project. I have had the reveal wheel since it first came out, and have not used it, just waiting for the right time, and this was exactly the project I was waiting for.
First using white cardstock I cut the card base, the wheel heart frame and the little arrow. I cut the night sky panel using the square reveal wheel die, and heat embossed using Gold embossing powder the Wish and the Heart of Stars.
I stamped and cut the two little critters and colored them with alcohol markers, and using some scraps from the paper pad decided to make the grassy panel and then a blanket for the critters to sit upon.
After figuring out how I wanted the sentiment in the window I stamped the open stars, then Upon, closed stars then A Star and heat embossed them. It does appear I need to use a little more of that embossing buddy to get a cleaner embossing.
I hope you have enjoyed this project as much as I have enjoyed bringing it to you.
Have a great day and see ya back next week with my FOTM Sneak Peek project, and I had a lot of fun with it as well. Let me tell you, each month the kits are getting better and better and I am really excited about this one.

Hello Everyone! Christine from Pattercrafts here to share this fun card to tell someone special how much they mean to you!
For today’s card, I am using the Cozy Camper Stamp Set by Newton’s Nook. For this card, I cut an oval using a scallop oval die in the center of the card base. I then used white card stock to create a scene to put behind the oval. The scene was created first by heat embossing the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment with a clear sticky ink, then sprinkled on some charcoal embossing powder and heat set.
Once my sentiment was heat set, I used a cloud stencil and some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink to make clouds in the sky. For the grass, I used a grassy border die and made several layers.
The images were all stamped with Gina K Designs Amalgam Jet Black Ink. I used copic markers to color all the images then cut them out. I added the larger of the 2 campers, the table setting and of course a flamingo to the front panel.
To finish the card, I added a few heart stamps above the sentiment – it looked a little bare up there 😉
Thank you so much for stopping by today! If you’re interested in the video that goes along with this card CLICK 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.

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.
For this first card it gives every reason I love going camping. I really miss the days we would join the family out at the camp in the Florida Everglades and have fun all weekend without a care about what was back at home. Campfires that we kept running all day and night, swamp buggy and four wheeler rides out to the middle of the field to check out the stars.
My husband said this is his favorite card of the three. Canoeing is so much fun and I personally can’t wait until the water is high enough to be able to go to down the river on a 4 hour float.
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?

We are focusing on products that celebrate nature, being under the stars and camping for the month of July. I hope you enjoy all of the great projects the design team has in store.
For this project, I pulled all the pattern paper out and grabbed a few card sketches for inspiration. It was a bit of a challenge using ONLY the paper and frames/tags pack, but I am really happy with the outcome.
I had so much fun with this collection! These cards will be perfect for children and adults!
