Today, I’m excited to share a fun and unique card design that combines the charming Tenting with Tailette and Glamping with Tailette Stamp Sets from The Rabbit Hole Designs. This project is perfect for those who love a bit of adventure and whimsy in their card making. The process involves some delightful masking techniques to make our focal images pop, and I have a few pro tips to help you along the way!

I'd Be Lost Without You Card:

The Inspiration Behind the Card

I’ve always loved the idea of combining different stamp sets to create a cohesive scene. The Tailette character is just too adorable to resist, especially when she's roasting an acorn by the campfire or peeking from behind a stack of logs. This card design was inspired by a recent camping trip where we spent our evenings around the fire, sharing stories and roasting marshmallows. I wanted to capture that cozy, adventurous spirit in a card that could be perfect for any occasion.

Creating the Perfect Scene

Stamping and Coloring:

I started by stamping the adorable Tailette characters and the campfire on Neenah Solar White 80 lbs Cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Coloring these images with Ohuhu Brush Markers was so relaxing! If you haven’t tried these markers yet, they blend beautifully and offer vibrant colors that really make your images stand out.


Pro Tip: Always stamp your images first and then color them. It’s easier to correct any stamping mistakes on a blank piece of cardstock rather than one you’ve already spent time coloring.

Building the Background:

For the background, I used the Layering Arches Dies to create a mask. This allowed me to do some ink blending within a specific area of the cardstock, giving it a defined and clean look. Using Distress Oxide Inks in Speckled Egg and Salvage Patina created a soft, dreamy sky.


Next, I added some texture and depth with the Falling Leaves Stencil. Blending Lucky Clover and Rustic Wilderness over the stencil gave a lovely leafy pattern that complemented the outdoor theme perfectly. I then took the Falling Leaves Background Stamp and stamped the outline image over the stenciled leaves for more detail.


Pro Tip: When ink blending, start with lighter colors and gradually build up to the darker shades. This helps in creating a smooth transition and avoids harsh lines.

Assembling the Card

Creating the Card Base:

I dry embossed a piece of Antique Ivory Cardstock using the Falling Leaves Embossing Folder. To add a bit of definition, I brushed the edges with Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide Ink. This panel was then adhered to a top-folding A2 card base made from Neenah Solar White 110 lbs Cardstock.


Pro Tip: Dry embossing adds a beautiful texture to your cards without much effort. If you don’t have an embossing folder, you can achieve a similar effect with stencils and an embossing pad.

Layering the Elements:

Once my ink-blended panel was dry, I attached it to a piece of Fern Cardstock for a nice contrast. I used a scrap of Fern Cardstock to add some grass detail with the Grassy Stencil and the same green Distress Oxide Inks.


The fun part was arranging the focal images. The campfire went in the background with liquid glue, while the Tailette images were popped up with Instant Dimensional Foam Tape for a bit of dimension.

Finishing Touches:

The sentiment “I’d be lost without you” was heat embossed on a scrap of Fern cardstock. Adding some Stardust Stickles and a Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen gave a subtle shimmer that catches the light beautifully.
