Stampin’ Up! Thankful Forest Friends for The Paper Players

I used the Stampin’ Up! Thankful Forest Friends stamp set to create my card for The Paper Players sketch challenge this week.

The theme for my card was inspired by The Card Concept 40.  I’d say that my card is clean and layered.

I started by adhering a panel from the Into the Woods DSP pack to a panel of Soft Suede card stock with SNAIL, then to a Rich Razzleberry card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered a smaller panel from the Into the Woods DSP pack to a smaller panel of Soft Suede card stock with SNAIL, then adhered a row of scallops that I’d cut from Rich Razzleberry card stock with one of the dies from the Cutie Pie Thinlits Dies set to the back of the Soft Suede panel with SNAIL.

Thankful Forest Friends 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered the layered panel to the card front with SNAIL, then adhered a strip of the 1-1/4″ Burlap Ribbon across the front of the card with Fast Fuse Adhesive.  I colored part of the sentiment image from the Thankful Forest Friends stamp set with my Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist, Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers and I stamped it on the top of a Whisper White panel.

Thankful Forest Friends 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the bear image from the Forest Friends stamp set in Early Espresso ink and again in Soft Suede ink on a separate panel of Whisper White card stock.  I cut them both out with my Paper Snips and adhered one with SNAIL and the other with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the Whisper White panel.  I colored part of the sentiment image from the Thankful Forest Friends stamp set again with my Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist, Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers and I stamped it under the bears on the Whisper White panel.

Thankful Forest Friends 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Greetings stamp set in Soft Suede ink on the Whisper White panel, then adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Soft Suede card stock with SNAIL.  I adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then pulled a strand of Linen Thread through a Rich Razzleberry button from the Brights Designer Buttons pack, tied a bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot to the card front.

Thankful Forest Friends 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped that cute little bear image from the Thankful Forest Friends stamp set in Soft Suede ink again on a Whisper White panel inside the card.

  1. Amazing autumn colours, Amy! With the purple it’s perfect! My favourite season is autumn and I must try these colours! The layers are beautiful and I like the friendly bears!

    • Ha! I sure did! 🙂 I realized after I’d cut the second bear out that I really wouldn’t have needed to do that…I could have just stamped it on the panel. But after I’d cut it, I wasn’t going to let it go to waste!! 🙂

  2. Amy, what a fabulous way to combine the two challenges! I love the mix of patterns, and all the texture in this wonderful creation! Those little bears look like they are off on an adventure! How fun! Thanks for rocking my sketch this week! XX

  3. What a fun card! When I saw that Forest Friends challenge, that set immediately came to mind! You did an awesome job with the sketch as well as the challenge…very cute! I love that sentiment, too..Cottage Greetings is one of my favs in this year’s catalog!

  4. His ‘n’ Hers bears Amy – that is so super cute! I love the colours and textures on this card and the lovely woodland feel it has. Fab take on the sketch and perfect for this time of year!

  5. Hi Amy! This is absolutely fantastic autumn card! I love the autumn colours! Beautiful scene and I love the friendly bears of course! Have a great day! Hugs Jenna

  6. What a fun autumnal creation, Amy! Those bears are so cute, and they pair so perfectly with the patterned paper. I love the tiny little leaves and acorns, too! Awesome take on the sketch.

  7. Hi Amy, I love the fall and even more I love your card !!! Very nice design, the bear is so sweet and the two colors it looks very chic.
