Fawn Card

I think my favorite set out of this season's Stampin' Up! mini is the one I used today... Forest Friends! The little animals just make me smile! I really wanted to post a SUO (Stampin' Up! Only) card today so I didn't add any flocking to this little guy but boy did I want to! He only gets cuter with fuzz! Hee! Anyways, here is the card I did:

All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Forest Friends set, Upsy Daisy set
Ink: Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss, Bashful Blue, Basic Gray classic inks
Paper: Basic Gray, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, Not Quite Navy, Bashful Blue cardstock; Maine Blueberry DSP (retired)
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Paper Piercer, White Signo Gel pen, Stampin' Sponge, Aqua Painter, Kiwi Kiss striped grosgrain ribbon, Dimensionals

Although I love the little critters in this set, using them has been somewhat of a challenge because they are pretty small. I had to build a little home for the little deer so he wouldn't get lost on my card! I started by stamping the tree on white cardstock using my markers. Next, Painted in some grass blades around the tree and the bottom of the cardstock piece. After that, I inked up a corner of a piece of a Stampin' Sponge with Kiwi Kiss ink and sponged around the grass to give it some soft color. I added the blue sky the same way, only with Bashful Blue ink instead! I added the cut out deer with dimensionals so it looks like he's standing off to the side a little.

I've been busy working on a couple of projects that have deadlines coming up. One is my friend Mya's wedding invites which should be in the mail tomorrow! I can't wait to share them with you but I may wait until she sends them out as to not ruin the surprise for anyone... I am also working on class projects for Scrapdoodles this week! I'll share them for sure!

Hope you are all having a great Monday!!

This is a great card! I didn't give this set a second glance when I first saw it ... I need to look again after seeing this!
