Happy Camper

Hi there!  I'm still a little behind on my blogging so this card was one I made to give to Kayne's Summer camp director on their last day.  Camp is on a lake and critters abound so this image from Saturated Canary seemed like the perfect choice!  It is called Liam's Good Catch.  He was colored with Copics and cut using Deckled Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I wanted a woodsy, earthy feeling so I selected greens, blues, and browns for my color palette, adding in a little plaid and some burlap for interest and texture.  I am getting great use from my La-La-Land Crafts dies lately!  Here I used Lattice Doily, Lattice Doily Border, Christmas Tree, and Birthday Flag.  The word camp was done using a stamp and die set from Whimsy Stamps called Spell It Out and Tiny Shapes.  The picket fence is by My Favorite Things and the grass is a Martha Stewart border punch.  A compass coin and game spinner from Tim Holtz finish off the card.

My small man expects that he will have handmade goods to give as gifts now and it was cute to see him give this to the director!  It's such a nice feeling to see something you've made bring a smile to someone's face!  Since we've already finished a week and a half of school and Labor Day weekend is upon us I suppose I should be blogging his back to school card too!  But I think I'll leave that for another day...

Copics used: E00, E04, E11, E21, E50, E51, E53, E55, YG91, YG93, B32, B34, R20, N0, N2, N4

This is an awesome card with so many details. I'm sure the camp counselor loved it and will cherish it forever. You rock!
