Today we have Crystal here to share a fun tutorial with our Happy Trails Set! Let's take a look!
Hi Ai fans! 

I'm loving this new Art Impressions stamp set  Happy Trails. I had so much fun making this card this week for Art Impressions new challenge!

I started by stamping my images onto a piece of smooth white card stock which I die cut beforehand with a Rounded Rectangle double stitched die. After I stamped my image I stamped it a second time onto a full stick post- it note. 

I cut the post-it not out and placed it over the image for a mask. I then inked the top blue and the bottom brown. 

I pulled the masks off which is my favorite part to reveal my image. I stamped the sentiment above the camper but felt it was missing something so I stamped the string of lights across both corners.

I die cut some pattern paper with a Rectangle Double stitched die.

I matted my colored image panel onto the pattern paper.

I adhered the whole card panel to a pink shimmer 5 1/2" X 4 1/4"  card stock base.

Thanks for stopping by today I look forward to seeing what you create for the challenge.
Happy Stamping! 

Thanks, Crystal!
