Summer Camp Cards

Hello, I hope you are having a great day!

The cards I am sharing today I will need very soon for summer camp!  I figure out how many days it takes for a card to get to the camp and then I send them ahead so that DS will hopefully get one each day.  I used some super stamps from the JFF's Camping Theme that I bought specifically for this purpose.

I first cut a window into patterned paper.  I stamped my images and simply filled in color with some markers.  For this first card I stamped over top of the image in light beige ink with a tattered screen background stamp.  The sentiment was stamped on kraft cardstock and trimmed out.  

The second card is just a variation of the first.  I trimmed around the image so that the leaves would go outside the frame.  I also used the campfire as a little embellishment.  These were not difficult to make at all and themed cards can be so much fun!

Supplies: Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Camp fire, Camp Laundry, Happy Camper, Tattered Screen background stamp, Versafine Onyx black ink, Hero Arts Soft Sand shadow ink, kraft, blue and white cardstock from my stash, My Mind's Eye Happy Camper 6x6 Paper Pad, My Favorite Things Die Namics Peek a Boo window die

I would love to play along with the following challenges:

Two fun camping cards - so similar to one another yet so distinctly different! I'm sure they'll be welcomed at summer camp :)
