Happy Camper with Joy Clair Designs

Hi there friends and fellow crafters, Labor Day in the US is over, temperatures are going to start getting better, and that means CAMPING. SO, to highlight this great time I brought out the Joy Clair Designs Happy Camper stamp set and got to work. 

For the cover of my card I first used a panel of black cardstock and a Hero Arts die to cut out the scene. The panel behind that die cut was made using the "Shaving Cream Technique", basically Foaming Shaving Cream on a paper plate, drop in ink colors you want for your project, for this I used Memento Dandelion, Memento Cantaloupe, Delicata Ruby Red, Delicata Pink Shimmer and Delicata Gold. Just a few drops of each and then swirl them around with a bamboo skewer. Plop the card panel in the gooey mixture and then wipe off with a squeegie. What remains is a marbled masterpiece that dries quickly.

Sticking with the colors of a camper we used to own, I used my Ohuhu Alcohol Markers to color it up. I used to love going camping and the sunset was always the prettiest time (not a morning person so never watched it rise). Are you more of a morning person or a night owl?

 For the inside of my card I kept it simple with the Happy Camper sentiment and the bonfire image from the stamp set. My cardbase is Black #110 cardstock from Recollections. My white panels are Hammermill #80 Premium Color/Copy/Cover with the Chameleon on the packaging. 

The other thing I loved was sitting around the fire with our friends at night before or after going out for an ATV or Swamp Buggy die for a few hours. Some would bring out something to snack on, a few would bring out the drinks and we would just sit and chat for hours. We were members of a Conservation Club where we would go most weekends to relax. I miss those days
