Thinking of You- Life in the Forest :-)
I love the combination of colors in this week’s ColourQ CQC244 Challenge and decided to combine it with the FMS139 Freshly Made SketchChallenge. The colors are so fresh and summery, I decided to create a little scene with the new stamp set, Life in the Forest:-)
I hope you have had a chance to visit both of the challenge sites- again, great inspiration from all!
Use the Big Shot™ with the Arrows Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and add the banner strips per the sketch-created from retired Designer Series Paper (DSP) and mounted onto Night of Navy cardstock.
Mount the panel onto a piece of Night of Navy cardstock, trim and mount again onto Tangerine Tango cardstock and adhere to the Night of Navy card base.
Create a tag from Whisper White cardstock using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and layer onto another tag created from Night of Navy cardstock, rounding the corners using the Envelope Punch Board.
Punch a smaller piece of retired Bashful Blue DSP using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and adhere to the tag.
Create the "grassy" area using scraps of Old Olive cardstock (embossed using the Big Shot™ and the retired Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and hand torn), round the corners using the Envelope Punch Board and adhere to the lower part of the tag only applying adhesive to the bottom portion of the “grass” .
Stamp the fox and trees from Life in the Forest using Tuxedo Memento™ Black onto Whisper White cardstock and color using Stampin’ Write markers and Stampin’ Blendabilities™ (Stampin’ Write Tangerine Tango for the fox, followed by the Medium Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities™ and the Old Olive Blendabilities™ for the trees).
“Fussy cut” out each image and arrange a few trees (tucking the trunks under the “grass”) using adhesive and mount the remaining trees and fox using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Add a piece of retired 3/8” Tangerine Tango Dotted Scallop Ribbon to the tag and tie Natural Linen Thread around the ribbon with a bow.
Mount the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the sentiment to finish off the card.
