Campology - Longing to Get There!!

I love to camp and it's been so long! We need to get back out there in our 5th wheel and hit the parks again. We've been given a cautious green light here in BC, and with an RV and being outdoors, the risk is low, but seeing what's been happening in the States right now, makes me take a second look at plans to be sure we can do everything safely. But being able to see our grandchildren again would be worth it! I miss them and they miss me!

Speaking of camping, we have a great new stamp set in the Annual Catalogue called Campology, and I got it for obvious reasons, but when I was trying to put some samples together for my Catalogue Launch last Saturday, there weren't many samples for this in the catalogue and as I tried to come up with one, I was stymied. The images are great, but so not to the same scale that you can't really build a scene with it.

I took some time to think about it though, and this is what I came up with:

  • I used the trees stamp as a background, inking it up in Just Jade and then stamping off once before stamping on the panel and then stamping twice more without reinking it to created some depth.
  • I stamped the the tent and the lantern in Smoky Slate and the coffee pot and mug in Mossy Meadow (stamped off) These shapes were die cut using the Rectangular Stitched Dies and the Coffee Pot, using the Stitched Shapes Dies.
  • The sentiment is stamped in Just Jade ink and die cut using the Rectangular Stitched Dies as well.
  • I used my Paper Trimmer to create mattes for all the panels, making them  1/8" larger in both directions. I used Smoky Slate cardstock for the mattes.
  • The sentiment is one of about 4 with this stamp set.
