Stampin’ Up! Friends of the Forest

Today’s card features the adorable Friends of the Forest stamp set.  I also used the Deer Builder Punch and the Scalloped Contours Dies

Friends of the Forest


I started with a piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock for the base of my card. I then cut a piece of Basic White cardstock using the Scalloped Contours Dies. I stamped the tree, flowers, tree trunk, bunny and sentiment directly onto the scalloped rectangle using Memento Ink and the stamp set, Friends of the Forest.  On another piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the deer and used my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to color it in.  I cut it out using the Deer Builder Punch.



Deer Builder Punch


Here are the Stampin’ Blends I used to color everything:

  • Deer – Crumb Cake (Dark and Light)
  • Tree:  Dark Crumb Cake and Light Granny Apple Green
  • Grass:  Granny Apple Green (Light)
  • Flowers:  Daffodil Delight (Dark) and Flirty Flamingo (Dark)
  • Mushrooms:  Crumb Cake (Light) & Pool Party (Light)
  • Tree trunk:  Dark Crumb Cake
  • Bunny:  Petal Pink (Light & Dark)


After coloring everything, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the scalloped rectangle and placed it on the card base. I added Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the deer before placing it on the card. 




To complete the card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside.
