You are Such A Deer

First I want to let you know that Kristin is having a prize drawing on her blog -

you just have to post a comment on her blog about what Artful Inkable stamp sets you like or how you heard about Artful INKables - she's choosing a winner at noon Monday 10/6 so hurry over and get your comment in!

She's also offering a grab bag of stamps free when you order $25 or more between now and Oct 12th so check it out!! see all the details on her blog posting....

Ok - so now back to my card!........ My card today was made for the Featured Stamper Challenge on Split Coast.

This weeks Featured Stamper was Love Stampin!!!! and I have to say that I have not been in her gallery before - and discovered she has many lovely cards there! I chose this pretty sympathy card of her's to case.

I stayed with the deer theme but used different stamps and made mine a card you'd send to a friend as a thank you or thinking of you card rather than a sympathy card.

I used two recently released stamp sets from Artful INKables called Deer Friends (the deer, chipmunk, and sentiment) and Country Critters (the tall grass, short grass and tree stump) for this card. I used a double sided designer paper for the background. I love double sided DP because you can use the two different sides and you know they coordinate without having to think about it! I thought these colors echoed the forest theme of the stamps.
I masked the deer using Eclipse masking tape - then stamped the stump and grasses. I used Prismacolor markers to color the images. The front grass tufts are up on foam dimensionals as are the image and sentiment panels.
I stamped and colored the cute chipmunk, cut her out and mounted her on the top corner of the sentiment. I added a little paper piercing underneath the sentiment.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend - back to work tomorrow so I can earn more money to buy more stamps ! LOL!!!
