You're Special to Me Card by Amy // Stamped Backgrounds

Hi everyone!  Amy here sharing a 4x4 card made using several of the new Fall Release stamps.  I started by using the Holiday Ribbons stamp set by stamping the bold solid ribbon across my card.  This is a smaller stamp so I stamped the longer lines twice and hid where they meet up with my focal panel.  All inks used were pigment inks in grey, rose, and pool.

I decided to go "cute" and use the Friendly Fox stamps.  My fox was Copic colored and trimmed out as well as the toadstools from the Grateful Heart stamp set.  My images were adhered to a vellum square that I stamped my sentiment using StazOn black ink.

My vellum focal panel was layered over a white square piece of cardstock that was stamped using the tree trunk image.  I love how this kept a woodsy feel!  These squares were attached to a dark grey cardstock with a tiny white clothespin and turquoise hemp bow.  

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!

Season of Blessings Card by Kari // Paper-Piecing Cute Critters

Hey everyone! Kari here bringing you another fall themed card featuring some of the newest release!  For my first post on the blog, I wanted to feature some of the cute critters in the latest release from two stamp sets, Deerest Friends and Friendly Fox.  I think these two images go so well together, and I wanted to do something a little different with them - I wanted to paper piece them!!  Instead of coloring them in with Copics or another coloring method, I wanted to give them some fun patterns by paper piecing them.

It has been a while since I have done this technique, but I thought this adorable deer and cute fox called for it.  I stamped both of my images onto a piece of cream colored card stock, and then I took some fall themed pattern papers that I felt would fit these critters the best, and stamped them again onto the pattern papers, and I fussy cut the images out.  For the fox, I cut out his tail and his tummy so I could keep those part of the images bright once I applied them to my card stock.  For the deer I did the same for the tail, and well as his face, and colored in the tail and his spots white with a white gel pen, and I colored his face in with a Copic marker.

For the rest of my 5x5 inch square card, I created panel from cream color card stock, and die cut several times some border dies to give it some interest with the different stitched elements.  I also die cut another piece of fall themed pattern paper using a stitched square die, and stamped and embossed my sentiment from Deerest Friends in gold embossing powder.

To finish, I added some fun leaf wood veneer pieces, added some foam adhesive to my critters and added them to my card, and viola!  I love the color scheme and all the elements that came together for the card using these adorable critters as the focal point! 

Thanks for stopping by today!!  Don't forget to head over the the RAH shop and check out the latest release!  It's a good one!
