Creating Your Own Custom Background + Camping Fun

Hello there! It’s Kristie Larsen here and I’m glad to be back today to share with you a little card with a simple concept that can be adapted in many ways. Lets get started!

I first took the Lower Outline Alpha stamp set and stamped out the word “campout” across my white card base. (I LOVE this font!) I started in the middle to get a good placement and then worked around it as I went.


I then took some Copic markers and coloured in just ONE of the stamped ‘campout’ words to highlight or spotlight that one part. This is what I used as the sentiment. When you stamp in black and white, you can spotlight any part of a card with ease just by adding some color. You could do multiple words but spotlight them in a shape if you want. I think you can come up with quite a few variations that would keep you crafty for a long while!


I then used this adorable set Campout set to make up the other elements of the card. I colored the little trailer with Copics.


And also coloured the fire and my little marshmallows on a stick!! I am currently in the states on holiday and are living it up!… We roasted (and burned) all the marshmallows we could get our hands on. I LOVE the marshmallows because they are so cute, but maybe I should have coloured them black, just to be realistic! That’s all we know in our family, ‘char-broiled mallow’.


I went out to my parents concrete patio to take some final pictures. They kind of add to the overall ‘camping’ look…. It’s a simple card, but a lot of fun elements.
