Around the Campfire


Hello everyone!! Hope you are having a wonderful day!!!! Things are pretty quite around here....it's too hot to spend much time outside so I have been cleaning and boxing up old clothes and lots of old craft supplies for our church garage sale in October. Now I have a little room for some new goodies....Woot!!!! I took a large trash bag full of old shoes to the church last week and now you can actually see the floor in my closet...should have done that years ago!! Anyway....

I pulled out my Taylored Expressions Around the Campfire dies and the TE Sunshiny Day stamp set to create this fun little scene. First, the clouds were sponged on the background...then the sun was stamped and colored  with Copics. The branch from the Around the Campfire die set was cutout of brown card stock and adhered to the background....the birds were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on the background and on a scrap piece of white card stock. They were colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up with foam dots. 


The grass was cutout of Doodlebug's Hip Hip Hooray 6x6 paper pad with the TE Build a Scene - Rolling Hills die and sewing was done along the top edge. The trees and cute little camper were cutout of the same paper with the Around the Campfire dies and popped up with foam tape.  The enamel dots and sentiment from the Sunshiny Day set finish it off. 

Thanks for stopping by....have a great day and be sure to do something crafty today!!!
