Happy 4th of July! I hope you all had a terrific weekend celebrating the holiday with family and friends. We had a crazy weekend. My son, Sam, his wife Tara and their children Madelyn and Nolan arrived on Friday to spend the week with us. They all love it here as much as we do. Maddie wanted to jump in the lake the second she got here. All the neighbors and their children, grandchildren and dogs were here so it was a wild weekend with lots of fun and craziness. Sam invited some friends and their families over on Sunday so we had a big cookout where everyone swam, jet skied and played lots of games. It was so much fun.
As you know the 2022 July – December Mini Catalog started on July 1st. There are tons of new and fun products in this catalog. It is also Sale-a-bration time where you can earn products for free with a qualifying purchase. One of the fun things Stampin’ Up! did this year was to offer a stamp set in the Mini Catalog and have coordinating dies available in the Sale-a-bration catalog. The stamp set is called Trees For Sale and you can get the Tree Lot Dies for free with a $100 order. If you like the stamp set you just have to get the dies (and visa versa). The dies cut out the trees, the dog and many of the other stamps but it also has a variety of dies to cut out a camper. It is just adorable.
To make this card, I first stamped the trees in many different colors. I used Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Garden Green and Sea Foam Green. Each tree background has a coordinating stamp that adds the “inside” of the trees. Next, I cut all the layers of the camper. I used Fresh Freesia, Smoky Slate, Basic Black and Orchid Oasis. I actually saw a camper going down the road that was close to these colors. Some company (I didn’t catch the name) is making new retro campers that are so cute with fun colors. I love that there are extra dies to cut the details out.
I used a sentiment from the stamp set called Honeybee Home for the sentiment. my son, Zachary and his family love to camp so I thought I would send this card to them.
I hope you all enjoy the holiday today and are able to spend it with family and/or friends.
This is such a sweet card. I love the unique trailer colors and the tree lot behind
So fun! I love all the greens in the trees. And the camper is so cute. It’s very like one Amelia bought for her fairy garden!
