We are now at Countdown Day 2 of the My Favorite Things December Release! If you’re one to love solid stamped images and cute critters, today’s set called Friendly Forest is made just for you!
I used the various images of the Friendly Forest stamp set to create stamped background using Blu Raspberry, Sour Apple, Cotton Candy, and Sno Cone dye inks. I usually find 4 different ink colors to be a good mix when I want to do some backgroud stamping. I already had a sentiment to use in mind so I made sure my raccoon was in the center of the card.
To specifically bring out attention to the raccoon, I had a little fun with some die cutting. I die cut a octagon using the Die-namics Stitched Tag-Corner Square STAX around the raccoon and then used the coordinating Die-namics Friendly Forest to die cut out the raccoon. This allowed me to elevate the panel, set in the octagon shape, and pop out the raccoon.
I heat embossed my sentiment in white onto Blu Raspberry cardstock, trimmed it down to a strip, and positioned it right below my raccoon. It’s all about the dimensions!
