Smore Camping Time!!!!!
Like others I have been thinking a lot about vacations and camping. We love packing it all up and going to Big Bear. The dog, the linen, our supplies and go up there for a week. No computers and no house phone to ring. (My cell phone doesn't ring all that often and I am fine with that too). So with Camping and vacations in mind I made this Step card, Teepee and fire lamp.
I cut the base using American Craft Sapphire card stock and Edisto Island Cards. Camping at Fox Ridge SVG Collection was used to make the outhouse and the cute Raccoon. The Fire pit and sticks and Marshmallows from that collection add to the ambiance of this card making you want to go to the woods.The paper is from Echo Park called The Great Outdoors, and is of of their mini collections. Add to the card, some Linen Thread from Stampin Up,wooden buttons a little bit of burlap and you have a camping card.
The Teepee is from the Camp Smore SVG Kit. Don't you just love these names? I love how Mary thinks about everything when she makes this stuff.
The paper I used is called Echo Park,Happy Camper Collection.!
I used the teepee to make the campfire. Size it way down and delete a couple of score lines and the cut for the opening. I used my print to cut feature on my Silhouette to color my camp fire. Delete the flap from the teepee then cut the bottom piece. Glue or use sticky tape to adhere them to the vellum. Make sure you don't go past the vellum at the bottom. This is so you can lift off the teepee or campfire to add the battery operated tea light. I use Cuttlebug forest branches to emboss the sticks before I glued them on. Ink the edges with a dark brown ink pad. If you can find a tea light that flickers it looks pretty cool too.
I used the same Happy Camper paper pack on the smore box. Then I cut the bears from Forest Country SVG Kit and used them instead of the camp fire as Mary uses in the demonstration. I am familiar with how much bears love marshmallows. I used a itty bitty flower punch from Stampin up to make a bite out of the marshmallows inked the edges and added some twine and the buttons.
I hope you all enjoy my creations and I have a suggestion for the gal who requested a village that wasn't Christmas related. Just wait till you see what I did with that! I need a bit more Jute to finish it. Well that is it, I hope all of you get some time away with your families enjoying the great outdoors and laughing yourselves silly. Thanks so much for visiting me again, and Happy Craftin Y'all! Blessings, Sharalyn
