FCCB 224 - Camp Out

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #224 Camp Out

This Weeks Sponsor

  ~This Weeks Challenge~

Camp Out
Create a project inspired by the outdoors

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

For my project this week I used the Create A Critter (Tee-Pee, fire and speech bubble) and Gypsy Wandering (sun) Cricut cartridges along with the Hamster Cutie stamp set from Pretty Cute Stamps - our sponsor!! We have been doing lots of camping this summer - it's been a little easier with Erica at 2 1/2 this year - and the girls have been having a great time! So, I decided to make a card featuring a fun tent and campfire to remind me that it still is summer and we need to enjoy every minute of it!

I used paper from CTMH that I have had in my stash for a long time - Twitterpated, and layered it on a Kraft card base. I added some Distress Inks and stitching lines to the tent and fire and popped them up with foam dots on my base.

I watercoloured this cute hamster using Distress Markers on watercolour paper.  This stamp set has a really adorable set of interchangeable props for 'Hammy' to hold!

The sentiments are from the same stamp set and I curved the clear Happy Birthday to mold to the shape of the speech bubble.  I added some black stitching lines and some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to the edges.

For one final touch I stamped the envelope:)
