Enjoy Life & a Few Challenges

I enjoy spending most of my summer days outdoors, but this week’s weather has “forced” me into my workroom and allowed me to join a few paper crafting challenges. As I searched through some of my favorites, I came across two challenges that inspired me to create this Enjoy Life card which uses one of our featured stamp sets from our June special.MissCarriesCreations-RoadTripCard

The first challenge is the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge where I was inspired by this sketch. As you can see, I used the Camper image from Happy Trails Stamp set and some of the sentiments to match the sketch for my card.

Don’t forget that this stamp set comes with a free kit this month. 

 

To create the multi-layered Camper, I stamped the image onto some Linen Cardstock and two patterns from the Into the Wild paper packet.  I then cut apart the images and paper-pieced the Camper together. Isn’t it just the cutest?

 

The second challenge I joined was the Heart2Heart Woodwork challenge where we are to incorporate some wood grain or some cute new wooden shapes into our projects. It’s difficult to see, but the patterned paper background has a slight wood grain behind the geometric image.  I also added some of our Wooden Shapes as embellishments.   I like the simplicity of these shapes and how they enhance our projects.

 

I hope that this card inspires you to join one, or both, of these challenges.  Don’t forget to get your FREE KIT when you purchase the Happy Trails Stamp set in the Best Moments are Free Bundle.  This special is only available, while supplies last, during the month of June.
