My blog is stop #8 on the hop and you should have arrived from Marney’s blog.
I started with the background by die-cutting a piece of Neenah 80lb Classic Crest solar white cardstock using a Stitched Rectangle die and inked a soft sunrise using a light circular motion with Scattered Straw distress ink. I lightly inked the sky with Tumbled Glass distress ink and heat embossed a sentiment from the Happy Harvest stamps using Tim Holtz Walnut embossing glaze. I then die-cut a light gray cardstock using the Frilly Frames Stripes die and adhered these panels to an A2 white card base.
For the grassy hill in the background, I die-cut another piece of white cardstock with a stitched rectangle die, inked it with Shabby Shutters distress ink and die-cut across the piece using a Slimline Nature Borders die approximately 2 1/4″ from the bottom edge. Before adhering this piece to the card front, I stamped, colored (with Copics) and die-cut 2 trees from the Critters on the Go stamp set and tucked them behind the hill on the right side.
Next, I cut a piece of Neenah 80lb Classic Crest solar white cardstock to 5″ x 6″ and stamped the tree and fence line stamp from the Fall Scenes stamp set across the top portion of the cardstock. I inked the grass below the scene with Shabby Shutters distress ink and colored the stamped image with Copics. I also added some grass detail to the inked area with Copic G43.
I used the coordinating dies to the Fall Scenes stamp set to die-cut along the top of the tree and fence line and then, to keep the stitched look to the whole panel, I die-cut the bottom of the scene using the Stitched Rectangle die making sure to place the die beneath the top left side of the tree to allow a few leaves to overlap the panel. I adhered the tree scene to the card and finished it off by coloring and die-cutting a few of the rake and leaves images from the Fall Scenes set and a few of the adorable Squirrel Friends images.
Hope you enjoyed!
