Vintage Camper Cards

Filed under: Projects — July 11, 2022 @ 2:47 pm

Added Note: The Tree Lot dies are no longer available. I did get a few extras, so you can contact me after August 31 to get your hands on a set.

I am having so much fun playing with the vintage camper dies from the Stampin’ Up! Tree Lot die set. First I gathered inspiration – projects from other demonstrators, from the SAB brochure and other catalogs, and even the color from this 1971 camper van for sale in the Cleveland area.

Next, I die cut lots of pieces and assembled some campers of different colors.

These were my 2 favorites, along with the cute dog from the coordinating Trees for Sale stamp set.

TIP: Cut the 3 camper pieces (1 die has the top and bottom) along with the little curtain in one pass, so you can mix and match colors.

The Happy Forest Friends Designer Paper makes a nice background for these whimsical cards.

I saved the negative after die cutting the trees to make another card. This sheet of the Happy Forest Friends Designer Series paper was the perfect backing.

I used several stamp sets to add sentiments (see photo links below), but Campology was my favorite. Oops, the Inspired Canopy dies from the last card are retired, but the Grassy Grove bundle would be a similar option – it even has some deer dies too.

Look at how the signpost die fits the sentiments perfectly! Tip: Stamp the words separately to get ENJOY TODAY to fit. See the first card above, where the bear is “holding” the sign – ha .

I hope this inspires you to create your own vintage camper cards – perfect for summer birthdays, Christmas cards, or just because. I recommend getting your hands on the Tree Lot Dies soon, because they are available only while supplies last. And did I mention, they are FREE with a $100 purchase (only during Sale-a-bration in July and August 2022).

Happy crafting,

Kim Wilson
