Forest Friends Trio

Happy Saturday! I don't think I've done a *trio* back since last summer vacation, so I thought I'd give it a go today with the new Forest Friends set. They are just the cutest little creatures! The set includes the tree, owl, deer, and bunny.

This first one below is very simple, I stamped the bunny with Versamark and heat embossed with Winter White Embossing Powder. I also used the new white satin ribbon from the Occasions Mini Catalog, and it is YUMMY! I almost didn't order it, but am so glad I did! Lastly, I am in love with that big chocolate chip button! It's from the neutral designer button collection in the main catalog. It is the best button ever!

This next one below, I used the deer stamp with Staz-On Brown ink and stamped off for the two lighter deers on the side. The "a little something" is from Matchbox Messages, a new set in the Occasions Mini Catalog, along with a white jumbo grommet too. Isn't that grommet cool?! It has little prongs that you poke through the cardstock and fold over, but here I just folded the prongs over and put the ribbon through it.

This last one below, I used the owl and tree stamp. I stamped the tree in Kiwi Kiss ink, then used a blender pen to take the ink off of the trunk and branches, then colored them in with a Chocolate Chip marker. I wish we could just have markers with the In Colors! The finished size of this card is 3 1/4" x 6 1/2".


Hope your weekend is going well! I'm afraid I haven't accomplished much...except for these cards and a long nap! hee! hee! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Wow Angie, you are on a roll! I love them all but my favorite one is with the little white bunny. Fabulous job!

I saw a tip where you can use a re-inker in a blender pen. Fill the barrel of the pen with re-inker and you have an In-Color marker. I could find the blog I saw that on for you if you need more clear instructions.
I love all 3 cards. I am off to create something...I hope.
