Campervan

 


At Kate Hadfield Designs there are so many fabulous sets it is really easy to get inspired to use them. There are digital stamps which you can colour, coloured versions you can scrapbook or make into digital layouts. Papers, patterned overlays and doodles galore. No matter what your skill level there are so many goodies to play with.



For this card I wanted to use the Campervan stamp from the Island Paradise Stamps set. I absolutely love campervans and this is the perfect VW retro style one. We went to Brighton a few years ago and it just so happened there was a VW rally on at the same time. There were so many enthusiasts who had their vans on display on the seafront and it was truly wonderful to see so much colour and how happy they were to share all their hard work. My favourite was a bright yellow one.


I have had the image printed for a few weeks and when I saw the current sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge I just knew it would be the perfect layout for it. This is quite a CAS card for me as there are very few elements and layers to it. Not sure if others would class it as CAS though? I would be interested in knowing what your thoughts are as to whether it is or not as I am never sure myself.


The image has been coloured with Promarkers, a Sharpie silver marker for the chrome elements and a pale grey pencil to add some shading to the windscreen. I fussy cut the image and popped it up on foam squares to add dimension. The headlamps have been accessorised with gems

The paper is from DCWV and has encapsulated glitter on the white lines so it has a bit of subtle sparkle. I placed it at an angle and trimmed to fit. Finally I added a silver peel off sticker sentiment. This is the perfect card for cool dude and could be made in so many different styles and colours just like the glass mat I use on my desk. It feels like it has a summery beach vibe with the fresh colours and that has given me another idea for a surfboard......


One of the most fabulous things about being in this Creative Team is that we have free rein to make anything we want to using the sets in the shop. This is amazing for inspiring creativity as there are so many amazing packs to play with. I feel very, very lucky to be able to have this opportunity.


Over at Kate Hadfield Designs there is lots going on. Kate is really generous with her freebies which are readily available. If you sign up to the newsletter you get access to an extra subscriber area the Doodle Den where there are loads more freebies. There is a gallery full of projects by the Creative Team and customers and so much inspiration for crafters and teachers. I would highly recommend you pop over there and join in the fun.

    Takes me back to the days one of my boys bough a camper for his surfing trips, it was a nightmare from the day it arrived. Now he's married and his wife indulges his passion and they have a motorhome!!

  14. Our family never had a camper van but I often wished we had. We used to be taken camping (tents) when young and I think a van would have been better. Great card.
