Are We There Yet?

Ah!  That age old question coming from the back seat of the family sedan, "Are we there yet?"  I wonder how many times I've said that as a kid and heard it as an adult!  LOL!  No matter how advanced we have become in travel, that question is still the bane of many a parent.

This week, Stampendous has been celebrating the great outdoors and picnics, one of my favorite outdoor activities!  What better way to see this great country of ours than by getting up close and personal with the outdoors by camping?  It allows you to fully enjoy and appreciate all the beauty and natural diversity on display all across this great land.  With camping being such a popular activity, especially in the summer months, it only seemed appropriate for Stampendous to create an awesome stamp to help you celebrate the fun.  For today's project, I've created a card using Trailer Travel, isn't it the coolest?

Here's what I used to create this card:

Aqua Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Neenah® Classic Crest™ Solar White Cover Stock
3-in-1 Advanced Crafters Glue by Beacon Adhesives
Copic® Markers:  (B0000, B06, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99; G0000, G24, G28; YG11, YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99; R24, R27, R29, R43, R85; YR00, YR01, YR02; Y13, Y18; BG0000, BG000, BG01, BG02, BG53; BV01; E11, E13, E15, E33, E34, E35, E37, E41, E42, E43, E71, E74; C0, 1, C3, C6)

Here's what I did to create this card:

Stamp image, color and trim
Create an A2 horizontal card base with a tent fold
Trim a mat for image and adhere the image to mat
Adhere matted image to card base

There was plenty of fun coloring to do in this card but it was all pretty simple!  If you're a happy
camper, or even a grumpy camper, this stamp is sure to be a new favorite!  If that was your convertible and camper, where would you want to travel to?   In the meantime, travel around my teammates blogs and leave them some love!  Here's a list of everyone posting today:
