The Wilderness Awaits

It's spring time in Wisconsin, which means I am getting outdoors more. Some of you may know this, but I am an avid hunter and fisherwoman. This nice spring weather always sets in my cabin fever, and I can't wait to get out on the lake fishing and watching the wildlife. This is exactly what I was dreaming about when I made this outdoorsy card!




How do you like that camo background? It was so easy to make! Just follow my step-by-step instructions:


Stampin’ Up! Supplies:


  • STAMPS – The Wilderness Awaits (c-139365, w-138962), Touches of Texture (c-143251, w-141934), Balloon Adventures (142823)
  • PAPER – Always Artichoke (105119), Very Vanilla (101650), Soft Suede (115318)
  • INK – Basic Black Archival (140931), Soft Suede (126978), Always Artichoke (126972)
  • OTHER – Layering Circles Framelits (141705), Stitched Shapes Framelits (145372), Big Shot (143263), Magnetic Platform (130658), Bone Folder (102300), Dimensionals (104430), Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755)
Cutting & Scoring:  


  • Always Artichoke Base - 11” x 4 ¼”, score and fold at 5 ½”; scrap for scalloped circle cutout
  • Soft Suede – 5” x 3 ¾”, 1 ½” x 4 ¼”
  • Very Vanilla – 4 ¾” x 3 ½”; scrap for banner and stitched framelits cutout
Instructions:


  • Using the large texture stamp from the Touches of Texture set, in Always Artichoke ink, stamp off on scrap paper first, then stamp sporadically over the Very Vanilla card front. Repeat with Soft Suede. Fill in as needed with both colors without stamping off to get a darker color. This will create your “camouflage” card front.
  • Using the Big Shot Die cut machine, cut the stitched circle out of Very Vanilla, and a scalloped circle out of Always Artichoke.
  • Stamp the duck image in basic black onto the Very Vanilla stitched circle. Adhere the stitched circle to the scalloped circle using liquid glue.
  • Adhere the camouflage card front to the Soft Suede layer and adhere layers to the Always Artichoke card base.
  • Adhere the soft suede strip to the card front layers. Using dimensionals, adhere the scalloped and stitched circle layers to the card front.
  • Stamp the “for you” sentiment from The Wilderness Awaits stamp set onto a scrap of Very Vanilla. Cut edge into a banner and adhere to card front using dimensionals.
  • Repeat camouflage color process from step 1 to the Very Vanilla inside piece. Skip the full strength stamping and stamp off for all 4 texture images.
  • Stamp “adventures” sentiment in Always Artichoke over the camouflage created in the step above.
  • Adhere the Very Vanilla stamped layer to the inside of the card.
Here's a peek at the inside of the card:




This card is perfect for the avid outdoors person in your life! Make sure you snag The Wilderness Awaits stamp set because it's retiring! Get yours before it's gone - seriously! This set is a "must have" in my stash. The sentiment on the inside comes from the Balloon Adventures set which is also retiring, and that saying can be used for so many occasions!


If you would like to snag any of the products used to make this card, I would LOVE it if you would purchase from me. I truly appreciate your support, and that's how I can keep bringing you all these great projects. I want my customers to feel appreciated, so when you buy from me, you'll be invited to my private VIP page where I get to inspire you with exclusive content, games, and prizes! If you use my monthly hostess code 93X9GTP4, then you'll receive an additional special gift from me.

Global Design Project 082 | Sketch Challenge

Warning! You may experience adorable overload with my sneak peek of this stamp set from the new annual catalog! This stamp set is called "This Little Piggy", and it is so stinkin' cute! I won it from the prize patrol at OnStage local, and I couldn't wait to get stamping with it! I used it for this week's Global Design Project challenge.

This week's challenge is a sketch challenge! You can click the sketch below to play along!


I had a lot of fun with this challenge, and it gave me inspiration to create with my NEW stamp set! Here's what I created inspired by the sketch:


Oh my! Isn't that pig adorable? I just love it! I practiced some of my watercoloring on this card, and I think it turned out great!


Naturally I used one of the new in-colors for my card base - Powder Pink! Isn't it just perfect for coloring in that super cute pig too? I love it! It is really complimented by Soft Sky in the background...don't you think?


I had a lot of fun with this challenge and can't wait to give you a few more sneak peeks with some of the other products from the new catalog! Use my April hostess code 93X9GTP4 to receive a free gift from me!

Global Design Project 081 | Color Challenge

Hello Stamping Friends! I hope you are enjoying your week - I have been feeling under the weather trying to fight off a horrible cold so I'm healthy for On Stage this weekend in Minneapolis! I was going stir crazy laying around last night, so I headed up to my craft room to work on this week's Global Design Project. This week the Global Design Team crafted a color challenge - you can click the palette below to play along.


I spent some time pondering what my free choice color would be. After all, if I am chosen as the winner of this challenge, then I get to be the guest designer for the next color challenge! That would be such an honor! I finally decided on Crumb Cake...


For the watercolor effect on this card, I stamped onto watercolor paper first in Night of Navy and then spritzed with water using my Stampin' Spritzer. I was generous with my spritzing and then turned my card different ways to get the color to run all over my card.






I helped along the drying process with my heat tool and then repeated the same process in Crumb Cake. I choose to stamp in Crumb Cake after Night of Navy because I didn't want the dark navy to take over the color of the neutral. After drying the card front after the second round of watercolor, I stamped the sentiment which comes from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set - just like those gorgeous flowers.


I wanted to add some detail for the perfect finishing touches to the card, so I did some marker flicking on my die cut dragonfly in Night of Navy, and I sponged all around the edges of the watercolor layer in Crumb Cake. Some Linen thread wrapped around 4 times completes the card front layer.


This spritzing watercolor technique is a an easy way to get make a fabulous card, and you don't need to spend a lot of time with your aqua painters to get a look that really wows!

Need to add to your Stampin' Up! supplies? I would love to earn your business! I truly enjoy inspiring you with new projects and helping you to be creative! When you support my online store, it helps me to keep bringing you these amazing projects! Plus, I send a special thank you to my customers.
