Little Squirrel Sending Special Hugs

Little Squirrel Sending Special Hugs

Hi Crafty Friends,

We have a wonderful card design by Rosali from the I Love Stamping blog and IG @ilovestamping. But before we jump into the ins and outs, I want to take a minute and say how AWESOME all our readers are! When I suggested leaving a comment if you were so inclined, you guys responded with all sorts of loveliness! Thank you so very much. We appreciate you all so much!! 

Now, on to this adorable squirrel!

Rosali started with a white Bristol paper card base and stamped a row of darling little mushrooms that are in the set, using very light ink. Antique Linen distress ink is a good one for this! Once that was done, she added a background using a couple of distress oxide inks; Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron and a little water and brush.

With the background painted, it was time to stamp the squirrel onto a small piece of remaining Bristol paper and color it and the mushrooms with colored pencils.

There are only a few details left to finish the card. First, the squirrel was cut out using the matching die set and a sentiment strip was cut from black cardstock, using one of the dies from MFT’s Blueprint 28 die-namics set. Sending Hugs (from the MFT SY Joyful Bears set) was stamped and white heat embossed. Finally,  the squirrel was mounted with a bit of foam tape, along with the sentiment strip.  Black ink splatters where added, the corners were trimmed to a nice round shape and a few enamel drops. were added. This completes this adorable little mini scene!
