Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Happy Camper

Welcome everyone! It’s time for Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today. My family and I are headed camping so I made this super adorable card to celebrate the occasion! It’s been years since we’ve gone and to say I’m excited is a very giant understatement!

I bought this fun Avery Elle Camping Critters set last year but I hadn’t had a chance to play with it yet and this was the PERFECT excuse! I set up my scene to see how many of these cute critters I could fit all together. Then I stamped and colored them with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out and started ink blending my background.

I ink blended a white panel with chipped sapphire, weathered wood, twisted citron and lucky clover distress oxide inks. Then I spritzed the panel with a distress sprayer and let it dry. I ran the panel through my die cut machine with the Avery Elle Ray cover plate die. I love how this die gives the cut line detail and the circle highlight that you can remove or just paper piece back in place. Today I removed it so that it looked like a big moon glowing in my camping scene sky!

I added foam tape to the back of the ink blended panel and adhered it to a white card base. Then I added foam squares to the back of my images and popped them in place next. I stamped a sentiment from the set and trimmed it into a strip. I added it with a foam strip and and used liquid adhesive to glue the fireflies around it.

For finishing touches I added glossy accents to things like noses and firefly bottoms. Then I came in with unicorn Stickles for the flames on the campfire for a little more sparkle.
