These cards feature the Nature's Beauty Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!.
MATS: The Bottom Mat was cut from Cinnamon Cider CS.
The Top Mat was cut from Whisper White CS. .
COLORING AND STAMPING: First I applied a circular mask that I cut out of Post-It Tape for the moon and applied it to the mat.
Then I stamped the three animal stamps on Post-It Tape and fussy cut them to use for masks. These masks can be used several times. Next I stamped the deer with Soft Suede Ink, the rabbit with Basic Gray Ink and the Fox with Cinnamon Cider Ink. Then I colored them with Stampin' Blends - the deer with Bronze, the fox with Cinnamon Cider, the rabbit with Smoky Slate. Let them dry and then apply the masks.
Next I stamped the trees from the Lovely As A Tree Stamp Set using Early Espresso Ink and the bushes from the featured set at the bottom with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then I shaded the background using Blender Brushes with Night of Navy, Blueberry Bushel, Balmy Blue and Mossy Meadow Inks. When done you can remove all the masks. I finished coloring the eyes and noses with a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and the two tails and chest on the animals with the Chalk Marker ( you may need to use several coats).
SENTIMENT: Was stamped in Old Olive Ink on Whisper White CS using a stamp from the Birthday Banners Stamp Set and cut it out using one of the Merry Christmas Dies. It was popped up with Dimensionals.
Here's another version done similarly using lighter colors. The deer was stamped in Soft Suede Ink and colored with the Crumb Cake Stampin' Blend, the rabbit in Memento Ink and colored with Smoky Slate Blend, the fox with Memento Ink and colored with Cinnamon Cider Blend. This time I left the white areas uncolored. The trees were stamped with Early Espresso Ink. The grass from the featured set was stamped with Garden Green Ink.
For this background I used Balmy Blue and Garden Green Inks.
The sentiment is from the May Good Thing Grow Paper Pumpkin Kit and birds from the High Tide Stamp Set were stamped directly onto the finished card using Cinnamon Cider and Memento Black Inks.
The bottom mat was cut from Garden Green CS.
This card was CASEd from one I saw on Pinterest by Diana van Otterlo.
This third card was done using the same techniques.
The fox was stamped and colored using the same colors and methods as on the first card above.
The large tree is from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set and was stamped with Shaded Spruce Ink.
The smaller trees are from the Lovely As a Tree Stamp Set using Memento Black Ink and then shaded with Garden Green Ink.
The bushes were stamped with Early Espresso Ink.
The wavy lines on the ground area were stamped with Cinnamon Cider Ink using a stamp from the Waterfront Stamp Set.
Then I also added some tall grass using a stamp from the High Tide Stamp Set using Mossy Meadow Ink.
The background was colored using Blending Brushes with Blueberry Bushel, Balmy Blue and Old Olive Inks.
The sentiment is the same one used in the second card above and was stamped with Night of Navy Ink.
