Clean & Simple Stamping Fun!

Happy Friday!
C'mon...I know you're doin' the happy dance (or at least want to) 
because the weekend is almost here!
Glad you were able to squeeze in some time to come visit with me!

Now, I have a confession to make!
Those of you who have been followers here for awhile may already know this about me...
Ready?

I am not a clean and simple kinda card making girl!
LOL
There, I've admitted it!

However, that being said, I could not resist trying another CAS card when I saw the cute "Into the Woods" stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn at Scrapbooks by Designs!

Into the Woods Into the Woods Dies

I decided that I wanted to just do a simple fall scene with cute little fox
 in the center of the card.  
I began by inking and stamping the fox image in black and setting it aside to be colored and die cut later on when dry.  
While waiting for the animal image to dry, I inked up the tree stump stamp and stamped it onto my white 4.25"x5.5" pre made card base, basically in the centre.  I then chose the sentiment I wished to use, stamped it directly under the tree stump keeping in mind to position it so the fox would still have room to be applied to the card and things would still look centered.  
I then chose several colors of autumn colored inks and stamped a few different colored leaves falling around the scene.  
Going back to the fox image which is now dry, I chose to color him with my Spectrum Noir Markers.
Did you know you can find those at Scrapbooks by Designs as well?
They are a great marker to work with and I love mine!
I then die cut the image with the matching die and my BigShot machine and popped him up off the page with 3D pop up squares just in front of the tree stump.

Are you ready by now to see how this little creation turned out?

I'll keep you in suspense no longer!  LOL


This adorable set has so many different options!
I chose to create an autumn themed card because the leaves are turning colors in our area already and I am always in awe of the beauty!  And, I do love fall!
However, just think...you could create a "Get Well Soon" card with the fawn and the "Oh Deer" sentiment...a "Hello/Thinking of You" card with the adorable racoon and the "hello" sentiment...an "Any Occasion" card with the fun little acorn and the "smile" sentiment.  Mix and match anyway you want and come up with an adorable set of cards!

I hope you feel I've pulled off this CAS creation and have been inspired to create one of your own.
