S'More Fun!

Here is a little card for a challenge over at Doodle Dragon Studio! I am so glad to have found this blog. I love Dustin Pike's digi stamps and participating with the Doodle Dragon blog is a ton of fun and a good way to practice using those cute images that he makes.

Here is my card and a quick tutorial on how to make this embelishment for your own card or scrapbook page. What a fun thing for pages or cards about camping, right?

To make this card I printed the sentiment on the inside of an 8.5 x 11" cardstock. I used fonts called "Porky's" and "CK Journaling."   It's always S'MORE fun with friends like you!"

The dark green cardstock base is 4.25 x 5.5" and I chalked the edges with an evergreen chalk.
The next layer is a pine tree paper that I got from an ATD stack. I chalked the edges of this with the same evergreen color. The pieces to make the s'more are these: a grahm cracker colored cardstock cut to 3x3". A white cardstock cut to 3.25 x 3.25" with the edges rounded, and a scrap of chocolate colored cardstock - I had a piece of 2x3" left. Perfect! The "cracker" paper was run through my cuttlebug with the dotted template - the paper was placed so that the showing side is indented rather than popping up, if that makes sense. Next I scored a line down the center - you know, where those crackers are supposed to break apart, but they never really do? :D  Chalk the edges of your cracker and chocolate a little to give them some depth. The marshmellow was toasted lightly with a creamy brown and charcoal colored chalk. I like my marshmellows roasted extra dark. Do you?

I colored the digi stamp with copics and bic markers and matted them with a piece of the same dark green as the base. This mat was mounted on the card using dimensional foam squares. I embellished the corners with some of those cute scrapbook crystals.

Credit: I found a card with a similar "s'more" on it over here at Stamp-n-Design this weekend. My friend Stephanie introduced me to her blog this weekend and I am absolutely hooked. :) There are so many cute projects and ideas there! Check it out! Lynn Pratt is one talented lady!

That's all for now, but I have some more weekend creations coming up soon. Thanks for stopping by!

I agree it's a winning card and I just found your blog on your entry. You went into wonderful detail regarding how you made the card, but I don't see where you got the digi stamp..and the it a Dustin Pike? I'm not familiar with that one and perhaps I should...haha Thank you for your response and again, congratulations.
