Camping-Themed Cards

I loved this week's Sketch Challenge at SCS. I brought out the Camping Papers I bought at last year's Scrapbook Expo and set to work. I ended up making a total of six cards - I think that is a record for me. But try as I might to make exact duplicates, I just cannot! There are just slight differences, but these are those last-minute decisions that end up adding minutes to each card. Oh well, they were fun to make and I loved this sketch so much I am sure I will be using it again & again. TFL!

I flipped the sketch and added a sticker and some candy buttons.

For the inside, I used my sprig & dots stamps from Stamps By Judith, along with a sentiment stamp from Paper Inspirations. 

For this next card, I had to use a smaller oval to cut out the picture, so I added another set of ovals behind the small ones. Also replaced the sticker with more candy buttons. 

 These two are going to be sent to my daughters while they are away at camp, so I added the scallops for a more feminine touch. 

 It's so hard to do masculine cards, but this sketch worked so well with these papers that I knew I could get more use out of more of these types of cards. I think I will use them for birthday cards for my nephews - but I didn't add the sentiments yet in case I end up using them for something else!


Supplies for all the cards:
Paper: Bella Blvd, Kraft, olive cs
Dies: Creative Memories Ovals, Nestabilities Scalloped Circles
Other: Fiskars Edger Punch: Threading Water, Jolee's Stickers, basic grey candy buttons, sequins
