CCC #55...

Hello friends!!  Tuesday is here so that means time for a new CASology challenge!!  I was completely amazed by all the gorgeous cards that showed up in the gallery... you all definitely proved you had the "midas touch" when it comes to adding gold to your projects!!  This week we are getting in the great outdoors with a "campy" cue word, hee hee!   If you haven't figured it out, the cue word is "camp".   All the details can be found here.   Our guest designer this week is the super talented, Lisa!   And we have a great sponsor... Clearly Besotted Stamps!




Going to be honest... this was another difficult cue word for me.  I tend to be way too literal when it comes to cue words and the first thing I thought was "shoot, I don't have any camp related stamps" and I kinda panicked.  Then I took a mental step back and reminded myself that the cue word is just that... a cue to get you to think outside the box.    And I stated thinking about what are some of the things you see when you see when you go camping.  So after trying a few ideas I settled on die cutting some leaves from white cardstock using my SU!/Sizzix Autumn Accents die and adhering them to a white cardstock base.  Before adhering one leaf I stamped it using the corresponding stamp from the SU! set Wonderfall.   A fishtail flag was die cut from white cardstock, stamped with the sentiment and adhered to the card.  A bow was created using light green baker's twine and adhered and I was done. 

Thanks for stopping by... I cannot wait to see what "camp-y" ideas all you super talented papercrafters come up with for this challenge!! In the meantime make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Judy, Meghan, Ardyth, Gillian, Maureen, Kimberly, Jen and Tracey and our guest designer, Lisa!
