Happy Fall Y'all!

Hi everyone!  I'm so happy to be guest designing for Strawberry Jude Stamps this month.  I was really excited to get this set of stamps - it's my first set of animal stamps!

I had purchased a set of stamps from Strawberry Jude about a month ago, and was very impressed with their stamping.  The image was crisp and clear, and I was eager to try another set. Again, the ink coverage was perfect!  

Here's what I made: 

This card was made using the new release set 'Falling with Fox & Racoon'. 

To begin, I colored the sweet fox and racoon images with alcohol markers, and fussy cut them.  A drop of Glossy Accents was added to their eyes, and they were set aside to dry.  Then, using some distress inks and a handmade cloud stencil, some clouds were added to the upper part of the card base. The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Black Ink.  I took a piece of woodgrain cardstock, and added some snips at the top, to create a cute fence, which was adhered to the card base with dimensional foam.  The last step was to add the leaves by adhering them directly to the fence, and the critters, which were popped up with some dimensional foam.

What a fun card this is - I can't make up my mind who to mail it to!  

Thanks to everyone at Strawberry Jude Stamps for the warm welcome this month!  If you haven't checked out their adorable stamps, please do so!!  I'll be back in a week or so with a fun 'spicy' creation!
