Today’s hand stamped camping greeting card is so cute and might just make you start packing!
It’s getting to be that time of year! Scoping out new locations, saving campfire recipes, packing the bug spray…… Today’s hand stamped camping greeting card is perfect to share with people for whom camping is a favorite pursuit. Carol created this card she says is easy and quick and is sharing her steps with us so we can get started on our own!
Carol started by stamping the images from our Camping set. She used Copic safe ink for her card and says that colored pencils would look fabulous, too. Here she shares her color and all the Copics she used – thanks, Carol!
Carol cut out all her images with the dies from our coordinating Camp set and set them aside to make her gorgeous background.
She did that by starting with our Clouds stencil and used ink blending brush and Arctic Color Fuse Ink from set #7 to add a few cloud layers near the center of an A2 sized white card stock panel. This stencil is one of our fan favorites and with all the different shapes on the three sides, you can easily and quickly create beautiful dimension on your cards. At less than $5, this is one of those indispensable tools every stamper can use.
PRO TIP: Set your focal element – in this case the tent – onto the card panel to get an eye for how far down you want to set your clouds. So many times we forget this step and then have to redo the background so our main features don’t look like they are levitating! Thanks again, Carol!
Now Carol took another ink blender brush and added some Juniper and Basil Color Fuse Ink from sets #11 and #10 respectively to create her ground for her tent.
Carol says “As you can see from the photo above, the background doesn’t look very impressive at this stage. Haha! But wait, it will!” Oh we are SURE!
Next, Carol die cut her background panel with the largest die from our Nested Deckle Rectangle set. Carol laid out her images over this panel in her Misti so she could gauge where she wanted her sentiment. Carol says “As you can see from this next photo, I decided to add a third tree to place behind the tent.” This is another benefit of laying out your designs ahead of time.
Carol stamped the sentiment from our Camping set with black ink and then adhered the piece to a white card base.
And now Carol shares yet another great tip! She says “You might have noticed a random dot of ink in the upper left portion of the inked panel.” Well, we didn’t really see it but her solution was to use our Birds Die to cut one of the birds in flight, color it up with some of the same Copics she used on her trees and adhered it over her ink dot with a piece of thin foam adhesive. SMART!
Carol adhered her tent flat to her card, tucking one tree behind for the illusion of dimension. She then added the other two trees with more thin foam adhesive and this inviting card was ready to go!
