Happy Saturday stampers! Are you getting some time in doing something creative? I finally finished a card I’ve been working on since yesterday using the new stamp set Glamper Greetings from the SU 2016 Holiday Catalog. This stamp set was screaming to be used with the Outdoor Adventure Framelits.
I had the idea to create a mountain scene using the Outdoor Adventure Framelits and then have the camper image from the Glamper Greetings as part of the scene. I started with some watercolor paper that I did some distress ink blending on and then added water splatters to get the fun water drop look. I cut out the mountain and tree line images using the Outdoor Adventure Framelits. The sky I had previously created for another card but didn’t end up using it so it worked perfect that all the ink blending didn’t go to waste.
I stamped the camper image onto another piece of watercolor paper using Versamark ink and heat set the image using white embossing powder. I then colored in the image with some inks and paint brush then fussy cut the camper out. By embossing the image it made it super easy to watercolor.
I decided to make the scene into a circle shape and was going to place that onto the front of my card but got the idea to put the scene inside and the camper on the outside. I used the now retired Circle Framelits to cut out the window in the front of the card that was slightly smaller than the circle I used to cut out the scene. This way you could see the scene through the front of the card and when you opened it, you see the entire circle.
To finish the card, I embossed a layer of crumb cake that had the same circle cut out with the Woodgrain embossing folder and adhered that to the front of the card. The card is an A2 side folding card made from thick whisper white cardstock. I added some twine to the side of the card to give the front a little more interest since I didn’t add a sentiment to the front.
I have been stamping and crafting for about 13 years now. I love to see the smile on someone's face when they receive a handmade gift. Stampin' Up! has the best products and I love being a demonstrator for a truly great company!
