Stampin' Up! - The Great Outdoors

Hello, this week for Coffee & Cards we will be doing something a little different; I have been challenged by a lovely lady called Jean to come up with some designs using a particular stamp set she has owned for a while but has never used!  Jean very kindly lent me her stamp set as I don't have it (yet)!

The set is called The Great Outdoors - and although it has now been discontinued, I agreed to use it this week to give Jean some ideas.

We will use a watercolour 'smooshing' technique to create a unique background as well as some stamping to create this little scene:

We will also decorate the inside of the card:

Here is is the finished card with its matching envelope:

I came up with another three designs that would also be suitable for lots of different occasions.

Do you recognise the trees in the background?  They are from the set called Happy Scenes - I disguised the snowy patches on the branches with a black pen!

My favourite stamp in this set is the little ant - love it!  On the two occasions I have been camping I encountered ants so I thought it quite apt!!

I used lots of different inks and an aqua painter to create the backgrounds and colour items in. 

Thanks so much for looking at my Blog today, if you don't have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I would love to be yours!  If you don't have a catalogue and you would like one, please let me know and I will send one to you.  

Details of the products I used to create the project we will be doing on Monday at Coffee & Cards can be found below.  If you would like to know what I used on the other three cards, just send me a message.  If you need to order any supplies, simply use my “shop with me” button or click on the catalogue links on the right.
