Stampin’ Up! Campology Masculine Birthday Card with Watercolor Background

Happy Friday! My cards this week have focused on simple stamping, so I thought I’d mix things up a little bit for today. I created a mountain landscape watercolor and added the beautiful pine tree image from the Campology Stamp Set to create today’s card. This makes for a great masculine card!

I started off with a panel of Fluid 100 Watercolor paper and used Starry Sky ink for the mountains and a combination of Early Espresso and Starry Sky for the ground. The pine tree image from the Campology Stamp Set was stamped in Evening Evergreen and I painted in some additional color using Evening Evergreen to darken some areas of the pine trees. A weak mixture of Early Espresso was used to paint in the tree trunks. A sentiment from the Heron Habitat Stamp Set was used on the card front.

An additional sentiment from the Heron Habitat Stamp Set was used on the inside panel and I stamped the pine tree image from the Campology Stamp Set as well before adhering this panel to the inside of the card.

The same pine tree image was stamped onto the envelope front and envelope flap. I used Stampin’ Blends in Soft Succulent and Crumb Cake to add a bit more color to the stamped images.

I love painting watercolor backgrounds and I hope you’ll give this one a try. You’ll find instructions on how to create this card on the linked pdf document. Click on the image below to access the pdf tutorial.

Wishing you an enjoyable weekend! I’ll be back on Monday with another card project. Unit then, stay crafty!

NEW! Introducing Craft & Chat Sessions

Wouldn’t it be great to have some dedicated time to work on your latest card or scrapbooking project?

I thought I’d try something new! Would you like to gather remotely with fellow crafters to work on projects, chit chat, ask crafting questions, share a technique with the group, and generally have fun? If your answer is “yes” then these Craft & Chat sessions are for you!

Beginning in December I will be offering monthly Craft & Chat sessions. Here is how it works:

  • Look for the sign-up invitation from me on my blog and newsletter then email me to let me know you’re interested in participating. December’s invitation is below.
  • Just prior to the Craft & Chat, I’ll email you a Zoom call link.
  • Join the Craft & Chat via Zoom video call from the comfort of your own home.
  • Craft & Chats will be limited to no more than 10 participants – that way everyone will have a chance to participate.
  • Craft & Chats will occur on the 2nd Wednesday of every month and are FREE -there is no fee associated with Craft & Chats.
  • The Craft & Chat session will last around 45 minutes.
  • Bring your current projects that you’re working on and plan to have fun and meet new friends!
