Happy Camper Birthday

Happy Monday! we went from an exceptionally warm weekend to snow overnight. It's still coming down pretty good out there. It does look so pretty and peaceful but it sure was nice having a break from the cold!

Late this past summer, we bought a vintage needs lots of work, but we are hoping to have it ready to go camping this summer. With the nice, warm weather we had over the weekend, my hubby got quite a bit of work done on it. Once he is done with the framework, updating the structure,  electrical, etc...we can begin to work on updating the interior. That's the part I'm looking forward to! Can't wait to decorate and really glamp her up! I've already been hitting thrift and antique stores looking for retro items to use.

After getting our camper, I just HAD to get the adorable Glamper Greetings stamp set. I made this card for my hubby's birthday.

It is fun to add details to this adorable little camper and then watercolor. I chose the same color scheme (Tempting Turquoise & Real Red)  for this card as we plan to do with our camper. I plan to make some little home decor projects with this set to decorate our home on wheels.

Here's a look at our 1964 camper on the day we brought her home.

Do any of you own a vintage camper? While we have done lots of camping in the past, this is our first camper. We looked for a long time before we found one that wasn't too far away, fit in our price range, and didn't need too much work. Two out of three aint bad I guess. She just ended up needing a whole lot more work than we thought. Hopefully we will make lots of wonderful memories as we travel in her in the future. Wish us luck!

Delightful Pretty Kitty

Today is a gloomy, stormy Monday here in Michigan. Good news is that it's supposed to be mid 40's which is basically a heatwave for this time of year! Bad news is that it looks like instead of the sun we will be seeing lots of rain. Wah, wah! It's melting all the snow to reveal the drab brown grass and muddy roads...blah! So, how do I beat the Winter my studio playing with bright colors and Springy, floral products, accompanied by good music!

I think you will agree that this cheerful card using one of the adorable images from Pretty Kitty along with Delightful Daisy DSP looks very happy and Spring-like!

I colored this kitty to look like my Mom's cat because this card is for her. I used my Aqua Painter along with colors of Classic Ink to coordinate with the DSP. I did use the black Watercolor Pencil as well to color the kitty. You cannot tell from the photo, but I used Wink of Stella to add some shimmer to the flowers.

I just love watercoloring the sweet kitty images in the Pretty Kitty stamp set! A while back, I even created a tutorial that takes you step by step watercoloring each image to create a set of cards...if you are interested you can purchase it here.

You can't give a card with a naked envelope, right?!

I used the flowers from the Bloomin' Love set to add a floral design to the envelope. Have a delightful day!

Party Panda Easel Card

These Party Pandas are helping a special little one celebrate her first birthday.

The Picture Perfect Party DSP is so much fun! I used several cut out gifts on the base of the easel card to hold the main panel in place.

Here is what the card looks like folded down to pop into an envelope.

These little panda bears are just so cute! I love that this set also comes with the confetti stamp to add to the background as well. This stamp set can be yours FREE gift with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration! The Picture Perfect Party DSP is available in the new Occasions Catalog.

Peaceful Birch Trees

Today is the final day to purchase from the Holiday Catalog. There are so many awesome products such as the Carols of Christmas stamp set used on this don't miss out!

To create this card, I inked up the Woodland Embossing Folder using my Smokey Slate ink pad and then I used a Sponge Dauber to add just a bit of Dapper Denim ink before carefully placing my Whisper White cardstock into the folder and running it through my Big Shot.

The "PEACE on EARTH" sentiment from Carols of Christmas was embossed with Silver Embossing Powder and the cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I adhered the embossed square  to a slightly larger square of Silver Foil and attached over the Silver Metallic Edged Ribbon using Stampin' Dimensionals

Thanks for visiting!
