It’s a sad day in the Cantrell household today.  This is the day that our camper gets winterized.  Basically, that means, it gets cleaned and ready for the winter.  In other words… NO MORE CAMPING for this year.  I know, right!  That is so sad!  I love camping.

But, have no fear!  Stampin’ Up has my back!!!

The Holiday Catalog has GLAMPER GREETINGS – #142202!


Perfect for me, because that’s basically what I do.  I glamp.. glorified camping.  It means that I don’t sleep in a tent in a sleeping bag on the ground.  I have running water, a bathroom, heat and air and a real bed.  I won’t mention the TVs or DVD players or the Kreurig.  But, hey.. I put my time in as a tent camper and I loved it.  When the kids were little, we camped in tents… but as they grew, so did our camping equipment.  It’s all part of growing and maturing!

So, I winterized the stamp set and got the little trailer all ready for Christmas!


To make the camper, I used Staz-On ink (101406) and stamped onto Silver Foil (132178).  Then I fussy cut (which means I cut it out) the camper and added it to the card using Dimensionals (104430).

Tip:  In order to place the  snowman and tree in their spots, I just laid the camper onto the card layer.  Then I stamped the images then attached the camper.  It probably wouldn’t happen that the camper would effect the stamping of the images around it, but I didn’t want to take any chances.

Of course… this card called for Clear Wink of Stella (141897)!  I added it on the snowman, the mounds of snow and the snow on top of the the camper.  If you haven’t used Wink of Stella yet.. O.M.G. what are you waiting for!!!  It is a must have!

But, this stamp set is versatile.  You can use it all year long.  In fact, the reason why it was one of the very first sets I brought from the Holiday Catalog is because of the flamingo and the birthday sentiment.  You see, where my parents live in Florida, there is a group of clowns (literally, clowns… I don’t they they all come in the same car though!).  For birthdays, they go to your home and put a bunch of flamingos in your yard and call it “Flocking” you!  Mom & Dad’s community is made up of campers and baby single-wide trailers called “park homes.”  How could I not create a card for Mom’s birthday using this set.  Never has a more perfect pairing existed!!!


She absolutely got a kick out of it!

How does this set inspire you?

Until next time,  Keep it simple, stampers!
