Let the Good Times Roll with IRBH

InKing Royalty Blog Hop, April 2018 #stampcandy

It’s time for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Let the Good Times Roll. We’re sharing projects that are party themed or that have wheels, or both! I’ve use 2 stamp sets (Let the Good Times Roll and Glamper Greetings) and 2 Designer Series Papers (Wood Textures and Coffee Break) to make today’s card. Glamper Greetings and Coffee Break DSP are on the retiring list, so you’d better grab them while you still can.

When you hear “Let the Good Times Roll” you might think of The Cars’ song from the 1980s, but I opted for something a little older. Watch the video below to hear the Shirley & Lee song from the 1950s:

 

Here’s what I made:

This camper reminds me of the 1950s. I can imagine it parked somewhere with this song playing on the radio. That would be an AM radio, no stereo!

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Early Espresso card stock (CS) layer cut to 4-7/8″  3-3/8″
  • Coffee Break Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 4-3/4″ x 3-1/4″

Stamped with the Glamper Greetings stamp set:

  • camper in Memento black ink onto scraps of 3 different pieces of Wood Textures DSP
  • camper in Memento black ink onto a scrap of Coffee Break DSP (blue)

Stamped with the Let the Good Times Roll stamps set:

  • sentiment in Memento black ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS
  • NOTE: I curved the photopolymer stamp into an arc

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • one whole camper from the lightest stamped piece of Wood Textures DSP
  • door  from a darker stamped piece of Wood Textures DSP
  • trim  from an even darker stamped piece of Wood Textures DSP
  • “curtains” from the stamped piece of Coffee Break DSP
  • sentiment

Cut using a 1/8″ Circle Punch:

  • window in door – the window is a little larger than 1/8″, so I punched around the circle 3 or 4 times

Colored using markers:

  • tire and hitch (is that what it’s called?) using a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker
  • spot behind the door window using a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker
  • hub cap using a White Stampin’ Chalk Marker

Assembled the card:

  • Early Espresso CS layer glued onto the front of a Whisper White Note Card
  • Coffee Break DSP layer glued onto the Early Espresso CS layer
  • door, trim pieces, and curtains glued onto the whole camper
  • sentiment and camper adhered to the Coffee Break DSP layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals
