Last night I finally opened up my Glamper Greetings stamp set from the Winter Occasions catalog…and it happens to be on sale right now for the Online Extravaganza! The Playful Palette patterned paper I used will be on sale Nov. 28th Only for 24 hours…
I used the Emerald Envy cardstock for my base, a piece of the Playful Palette paper and Very Vanilla for this card. I chose to make a fall scene since Thanksgiving is tomorrow. Isn’t the pie in the window so cute?!
I also did some coloring for only the second time ever. I used my Blender Pen and really like how easy it was to use! That could become a new friend of mine when I have stamps that need some color added! I also masked the camper so I could put the trees behind it! I am beginning to think that if I use this many steps, I should learn to remember to take pictures along the way…I am such a newbie to this blogging stuff.
So, I am on a creative roll and very happy for it! I will keep crafting and keep sharing! Let me know what you think! Even if you don’t like it or have ways to improve it! I’m open.
Enjoy your day! Happy crafting!

It’s quite chilly here today, so a perfect time to get indoor things done!
This summer my son and I went with my sister, her husband, and grandson to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons for a week! We were “Glamping” it up! That was a new experience for my son and I who camp!
I am making gift albums for her grandson and her for Christmas. Here are a couple pages I have finished so far in his album. It is an old 5×7 Creative Memories album that I still had in my stash. There are only 10 pages, so I am having to really stretch myself in getting in as much as possible and still make it look nice and keeping it simple. I have also challenged myself to use my stamps! I am using mainly 2 retired stamp sets called Under the Stars and Happy Camper.
Since there are other folks in the pictures and they would not want their pictures on the internet, I have laid some vellum over their faces. Mine, I left uncovered. You can still see that I have pictures there, just not clear pictures of the people. I have to honor family!
Anyway, I will share more as I get more pages done.
Yesterday I had to whip up a birthday card for the neighbor boy across the street that wants to be President some day! He was having a Patriotic Birthday Party! My son was invited. We gave him 2 books on President Lincoln, one of his favorite Presidents. His cake was a decorated as the American flag, so in keeping with that theme, I made this card for him. He turned 8.
I used a number of stamps from different sets. I started with Real Red cardstock for the base and Whisper White to stamp on. I used the Dapper Denim for the blue, and Real Red for the swash. The swash came from Work of Art, the star came from an old camping set called Under the Stars that I had on my counter, since I am working on a camping gift album. The ‘For You’ came from a Paper Pumpkin set, August or September of this year. I distressed the Whisper White cardstock with the Dapper Denim using a dauber.
I just kept it simple and stayed within the theme of his party. I like how it came out!
