Life is a Picnic–Crazy 4 Challenges #546

Hi everyone, I’m so tickled to be guesting for
Crazy 4 Challenges again this month! I was one of the founding members of this challenge and it holds a special place in my heart. I’m always happy to join these girls again so many thanks to them for the invite!

Here’s this week’s challenge: Apparently the first Saturday in August is “Campfire Day”, so let’s do a camping/campfire themed card.

I don’t have any camping related stamps so I went with a picnic theme instead—you do picnic while you’re camping, right? To carry out that theme, I got out BB Every Day is  Picnic Stamp Set and Die-namics. The images were stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored them with Copic markers.

The background was created with Mini Cloud Edges Stencil, Blue Breeze dye ink. Grassy Fields Die-namics, cut from Gumdrop Green card stock grounding the scene. At the bottom of a Sweet Tooth card stock base, I added a strip of Buffalo Brights Paper Pad with some super cute ant visitors stamped on it.

The background was popped up on foam tape as were all the colored images. The sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips for the finish.

And that’s it from me today! Be sure to check out what the Crazy 4 Challenges team has to show you, too, and hope to see you playing along!
