Forest Friendly SPCC #8

This week, at Scrapmaster’s Paradise, we are celebrating the Stampin’ UP Forest Friends stamp set! This stamp set first appeared in the last mini catalog and I just had to have it. Thankfully, it is now in the big catalog. During this week, I have a few Forest Friends projects that I will be sharing with you and I will be showing them like mini workshops – offering step by step directions with measurements. That way, you can recreate them!
I also used this week’s SPCC#8 to make my card. This combo is not my usual colors so it was actually a tricky one for me and I created it! LOL Oh well! That is why it is called a challenge, right?? Be sure to play along this week!

Directions for Forest Friendly Card:
  • Background measures 4.25X5.5inches and is made of Kraft cardstock. Run Kraft cardstock through your Big Shot using the diamond Texturz plate that is part of the Stampin’ UP Backgrounds I Texturz pack.
  • TIP: When making your “sandwich” for your Big Shot, put a piece of scrap cardstock between your Texturz Impressions and Texturz Silicone Rubber sheet to create a deeper embossed impression. It will make your embossing POP!
  • Ink the background by lightly rubbing over the Kraft paper using your Dusty Durango ink pad and your Crushed Curry ink pad. Don’t press very hard because you just want the ink to touch the raised part of the cardstock.
  • Stamp the deer image from the Forest Friends stamp set using Crushed Curry ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Then repeat using the Dusty Durango ink.
  • Using a stamp from the Very Thankful stamp set, color over the thank you sentiment using your Basic Black Stampin’ UP Marker and stamp.
  • TIPS: When using sentiments, use your Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement!! When using markers, pick and choose what parts of the stamp you want to use my just coloring the parts you want and skip over the rest, this is called OMITTING. When you are done going over the part you want to stamp, breathe over the stamp, kinda “huff” on it to moisten the ink and then stamp!
  • Cut the Whisper White cardstock to measure 2.75inches wide and 2.5inches tall.
  • Cut a piece of Mellow Moss cardstock to measure 3inches wide and 2.75inches tall.
  • Attach the Mellow Moss to the background with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then the Whisper White as desired.

  1. Oooh, that’s a touch color combo! Your card turned out great, though. I love that little set, and wonder if I should go ahead and bump it higher on the wish list!
