              Capture the Good & 
              On To Adventure
              I bought the Capture the Good and On To Adventure just to make this card. Seriously, I did!!! Now I'm so glad I did because they are so much fun to use, and because both of these sets are retiring.  They are available until June 2, 2020, or while supplies last.
              I saw this cute, adorable card on Pinterest, and followed it to Tina Wardell’s blog. To see Tina’s video and her card, click Here, post of July 5, 2019.  

              Recipe: (building from base)
              • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Granny Apple Green, scored at 4 1/4.
              • The Basic Black layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
              • The camera, little man, Hank, and the words are stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black ink on a 5 x 3 3/4 piece of Whisper White.
              • Hank is colored with Stampin' Blends.  (The blends will not be sold separately, only as a combined set of light and dark beginning with the 2020-21 catalog).  
              • The 7 x 1 3/8 piece of Basic Black is layered with 4 pieces of 1 3/8 x 7/8 pieces of Bird Ballad DSP.  After I glued the DSP to the black cardstock, I punched holes with a 1/8" handheld circle punch, (retired, and available at most craft stores) 
              • The words are colored with my Water-based Black marker and I used a 3/4" circle punch (retired) to cut them out, and popped the circles up with dimensionals. 
              • All done and remember to decorate your envelope.
              Should you want to purchase any of the supplies I used to make this card, I would be honored if you chose me as your demonstrator, and placed your order in my on-line store, HERE Or, you can click on the 2019-20 catalog right here on my blog.
