Happy Camper

Lest anyone think I’ve disappeared over the last few weeks… I’m still here. Happy Camper!

Last weekend I had an opportunity to “retreat” with 17 of my stamping friends at the Whatever Craft House in Newton, KS. I made a lot of cards, including this one! I’m going to send it to my cousin, as we enjoy camping together in the summer! She’s got the cutest little Minnie Winnie travel trailer.

I bought a new-to-me used trailer this winter – one weekend when my husband was out hunting. LOL That’s a fun story! I can’t share most of it in writing. I like being married! But, I will say, you can bet I’ll have a little nook for my markers when we take it out for the first camp of the season this year!

At any rate – this card was for my cousin Terri with the Minnie Winnie – I like saying that! LOL

I stamped the Avery Elle Glamper Camper on XPress It Blending Card, colored with my favorite yellow Copic combo (Y32/Y35/Y38) and cut with the coordinating die.

One of the great things about the retreat – the best is the people – but second best is sharing supplies and trying new things! I was able to test drive the Ranger Distress Oxide Inks! The background was blended with Pistachio and Salty Ocean – swirling around – no brush strokes. Love that blended butter-smooth look!

After blending the background, I cut the HAPPY from Taylored Expressions HAPPY Block Party – LOVE these dies because you can place them anywhere on your card front! So many words! So fun! I added a few cuts from the Skinny Mini Party Borders, a kraft flag and twine. Called it good and in the mail!

So, that’s my happy and glad to be sharing for a Tuesday! I’m headed to Vancouver, BC to teach Copic certification this weekend, and I have one more Copic Workshop – new hand lettering, coloring animals and landscapes coming up in Anaheim in two weeks before the summer break! Come and color with me! Looking forward to it!

Have a GREAT Tuesday!
