Hello crafty friends, I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Welcome to the My Favorite Things April Release Countdown Day 2.
Today I am sharing my nature themed cards with the new Forest Friends stamp & Die-namics, Friends Die-namics, Tree-mendous Die-namics, and Bold Greenery Die-namics.
For my first card, I stamped the trees from Forest Friends set onto watercolour paper panel using Black Licorice hybrid ink, then watercoloured it with Peerless watercolors. I then stamped the fox and owl on a separate watercolour paper with Black Licorice hybrid ink, watercoloured them with Peerless watercolours as well, then die cut them with Forest Friends Die-namics. 3) Die cut the word “friends” from white card stock using Friends Die-namics five times, then glued them together using a fine tip glue pen. 4) Mounted all elements as shown to white card base using dimensional foam tape. 5) Embellished with a few PPP Share Kindness Sequins.
For my second card, I stamped the critters from Forest Friends set on watercolour paper using Black Licorice hybrid ink, watercoloured them with Distress markers, then die cut them with Forest Friends Die-namics. I die cut stitched trees from coloured card stocks using Tree-mendous Die-namics – I used Limelight, Green Room, Field Day card stocks for treetops and Milk Chocolate for trunks. Before mounting all elements, I added stitching to white card base with Stitched Strip Die-namics.
For my last card today, I used Bold Greenery Die-namics as my main supply. First off I die cut a piece of watercolour paper using Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I then made my own watercoloured background with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor. I die cut leaves from white card stock using Bold Greenery Die-namics. For the sentiment, I stamped it from Forest Friends set on black card stock using VersaMark Embossing ink, then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I mounted all elements as shown to Kraft card base using dimensional foam tape. To finish it off, I embellished with a few PPP 4mm clear droplets.
