TCP Tuesday Challenge - TCPTUES61 / Mojo Monday 89


For this week TCP Challenge, Jen from I {heart} 2 stamp, has a color combo challenge for us and wanted us to use 3 colors: brown, yellow and aqua with red being optional. These colors bring SUMMER to mind! Nice and bright, I decided to use all four--they were so much fun to use!

I immediately took out the newly released TCP summer set, Happy Camper. I gotta say that this new set is something refreshing and not the usually stamps I tend to buy. But I immediately felt a liking to to the images and the sentiment; thinking I could find some FUN ways to use them! This new The Cat’s Pajamas swanky set can be found here so check them out (great deal)!

And when I saw this week Mojo Monday Sketch 89, I just knew I wanted to use it - their sketches are great but I don't always play, so it is fun to do so when I can! :)

Here is my take on both these challenges:

Isn't that sentiment just FUN??? From the moment I got these stamps, I knew I had to ink the bear! And after seeing some amazing blog and gallery post by the TCP design team, I was inspired to do so.

The background PP is from an old DCWV summer stack, but it reminds me of picnic linen; totally goes well with the sentiment and that cute bear holding the smore! I can't take credit for that idea; but there was something about this cute bear, the fire and the smore that I had to recreate for myself! The leaves are felt; adding a bit of texture and goes nicely with the camp theme. Can you tell I had a lot of fun making this card?

Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the weekend!
