SUO127 Wilderness Awaits- Favorite New Stamp Set :-)




Hi Stampers!   

It’s time for the new SUO127 “Favorite New Stamp” Challenge!  What a decision- to choose only one as a favorite?  I decided to use The Wilderness Awaits since when I first saw that stamp set, it was immediately added to my “Wish List”. 

Of course, I could not use just one, so I combined it with the new Vintage Leaves set as well as Petite Pairs for the sentiment.

I also incorporated the Time Out #35 Nature (with option twistof Animals)  Challenge and  F4A275 “Honor Thy Father” (see the details here and gallery here)
  
I hope you will find the time to check out all the rest of our Design Team ideas at SUO Challenges as well as those at the other two challenge sites- fabulous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Ink the fox image using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.
 
Color the image using Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze and Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Markers for the fox, Wild Wasabi and  Mossy Meadow for the grass along with an AquaPainter™ (scribble the marker onto an acrylic block or craft mat and use the AquaPainter™ to apply to the image, then use the markers themselves as needed for definition). 

Trim the image and mount onto Early Espresso cardstock, trim again and mount onto Cajun Craze cardstock.

Stamp the sentiment using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, punch out with the 1 ¼” Circle Punch and mount onto a circle of Early Espresso and Cajun Craze cardstock (also punched with the 1 ¼” Circle Punch).

Adhere the sentiment behind the fox image panel.

Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Tangelo Twist, Old Olive and Soft Suede to Very Vanilla cardstock.

Stamp the leaves using Memento® Tuxedo Black Ink and cut out by hand.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Cajun Craze card base.

Add the Maple Leaf to the card front and mount the fox image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to the card front.

Add the remaining leaves and mount the Cajun Craze bow (created with the Bow Builder Punch) along with the Antique Brad to finish off the card.

The pose of this fox makes a wonderful sympathy card, and this one is beautifully 'put-together.' Thanks for sharing all you do, Julie.
