Simple Saturday Card-Life in the Forest

Life in the Forest

What is it about the Life in the Forest stamp set that makes it so fun to color?  This really is a simple card if you consider coloring relaxing and you don't mind fussy cutting.  Love the look of the cream newsprint and the crisp white together.  You may not be able to tell it from the picture, but my card is slightly oversized (4-1/2" x 6").  Confession, the typeset paper was an after thought.

Hey There, it's November.  Can you believe it?  If you don't already own the Word Bubble Framelits, they're a wonderful go to set and they are on the Stampin' Up! Weekly Deals this week.

 

We're waiting on news of the birth of newest granddaughter today.  More about that tomorrow.  Don't you feel a Baby Girl Card coming on?

 

Have a fabulous day,

Walk in the Wild Masculine Card

With 6 Sons and 8 Grandsons, not to mention my Husband, my life has been centered around guys for a long time.  So it's important to me to be able to make masculine cards.  With its rugged outdoorsy theme, the Walk in the Wild stamp set naturally makes great cards for the fellows.

 Have you ever seen a moose in the wild?  They're BIG!   Such a magnificent animal calls for an oversized card, which also calls for an oversized envelope.  My card measures 6" x 4-1/4".  Love the sturdy Kraft Paper for larger card bases.  You guessed it, I made my custom envelope with the Envelope Punch Board

Moose

 

This handsome fellow was munching on vegetation along side the road this summer when we were visiting our son, Jeremiah, in Wyoming. 

Walk in the Wild

 

 I colored my moose with Crumb Cake and skin Tone Blendabilities for rich, vibrant color.  The grasses were colored with Old Olive Blendabilities and I swooshed a Night of Navy Blendability across my card stock for rich, deep blue sky.

 It's very rewarding picking up random left over pieces of card stock and designer paper and putting them to use in unexpected ways.  Remaining pieces from my envelope and card front made a memorable presentation for the inisde of my card.

Thoughts, Prayers and a Card

Life in the Forest

Today's card is for a friend and team member who is going through a rough time.  Too many funerals, it's so hard to say good-bye.  I'm hoping that finding this Forest Friends card in her mailbox will brighten her day.

Robin's Card Making Tips

  • The Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack is both soothing and happy.  The bottom piece is for her tears and the top piece is for happy memories, friends and faith.
  • I have to admit that I find it theraputic coloring the cute little animals from the Life in the Forest Stamp set.  Today I used the Daffodil Delight, Smoky Slate and Flesh Tone Blendabilities.  For the hedgehog, I also used my Lost Lagoon Marker.
  • I unraveled a bit of Burlap ribbon and added a Frosted Sequin just because I could and they are fun.

  • My verses are stamps from the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set.  
  • Love the shape of the new Sweetheart Punch.

 

Thoughts and Prayers

I picked up a scrap of designer paper from beside my cutter for an extra piece of happy for the inside of my card.

 

Have a joyful, fabulous Monday!
