Glamping with Tailette Light Up Card:

Bringing the Glamping Scene to Life

When I first saw the Glamping with Tailette Stamp Set, I immediately envisioned a cozy campsite under the stars. The adorable Tailette character and her glamper just screamed for a light-up feature. With summer in full swing, who doesn't love the idea of glamping, right?

Coloring and Die-Cutting Fun

I started by stamping the images from the Glamping with Tailette Stamp Set and the Let's Wander Stamp Set. One of my favorite things about crafting is the coloring process. It's so relaxing, almost like a mini escape. I used my Ohuhu Brush Markers for vibrant and detailed coloring. Remember, taking your time with shading can really bring your images to life. Once colored, I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies – this ensures precision and saves time.

Crafting the Perfect Background

For the background, I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4". Simple ink blending with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink for the sky and Twisted Citron for the ground creates a serene setting.


Pro tip: When ink blending, start off the paper and move in circular motions to avoid harsh lines. This method ensures a smooth gradient which adds depth to your scene.

Adding the Light-Up Element

Creating the light-up feature was an absolute joy. I die-cut a circle and used the sun ray dies from the You've Been Framed Dies to create sun rays. Ink blending Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink gave the sun a warm, inviting glow. Here’s a handy trick: Use a polkie tool to enlarge some of the smaller die-cut circles for your lights. The EZ-Lights from Pear Blossom Press fit perfectly and are incredibly easy to work with.


Building the Scene

Once the lights were in place, it was time to assemble the scene. I attached the die-cut circle to the card base with foam tape, ensuring the lights were secure. Then, I carefully arranged Tailette and her cozy glamper around the card front. Mixing liquid glue and foam adhesive helps create different levels of dimension, making the scene more dynamic. Aligning the Let’s Wander image with the bottom of the circle tied everything together beautifully.

Adding Interactive Elements

No interactive card is complete without a clear “press here” sign! I stamped (with the Press Stamps & Dies from Pear Blossom Press) and colored this sentiment to match the pine trees and placed it strategically on the card. This not only guides the recipient but also adds a fun element of surprise.


Final Touches

To finish off the card, I added some white gel pen highlights and a touch of Stardust Stickles for sparkle. These small details make a big difference, adding that extra bit of magic to your creation. My favorite part is watching the recipient's face light up – quite literally – when they discover the interactive feature!
