Hi, Happy Summer!
I'm excited for tonight. I am having a summer hangout event with my team. We are going to one of my favorite places, Bowl Of Heaven (the serve smoothie bowls, google that if you don't know what I mean, your life will never be the same). And we are going to have some fun just stamping together.
I have designed three projects using the new Always an Adventure collection just from the just released 2016-2017 Catalog. I feel in love with the set as soon as I saw it. Maybe it's because I am from Idaho or maybe because I love camping, but it is a cute set!
I designed 3 projects, a note card, a gift tag and a little journal.
Here's a close up look at all three.
The note card has lots of fun elements, starting with the Woodland embossing folder to make a nice background on my card. then I used a negative piece from the die cut mountains I used for the little journal as a stencil and sponged the mountains. The trees, bear and sign are all stamped and die cut. I added a sentiment and a tousled piece of linen thread. The grass/ground was hand cut but the cloud is was die cut from Whisper White, the clouds alone in this set where enough for me to buy this set!
This little journal started out as a mini composition notebook that is about 3" x 4-1/2". I added some Whisper White paper to cover it, layered on some die cut mountains and trees. Then dressed up the scene with some hot air balloons, clouds and a sentiment. The binding is just a piece of Early Espresso card stock, stamped with the Hardwood background stamp.
Last is my tag. It's simple and eye catching. The little camp fire! I love it! I think this tag would be great on any number of home made treats, cookies, a jar of jam, granola, a basket of veggies from your garden, jerky, granola bars, smores fixins, DIY bug spray. The list goes on and on.
Looking forward to some stamping fun tonight with my team.
