Inspiration Week: Introducing Woodsy Creatures Set

Hello there!  Welcome to Day 3 of our Fall Inspiration week.  Today I'm showcasing a new set called Woodsy Creatures (hitting our online store early tomorrow morning).  ;)

This set is made to mix and match with the previously released Comfy Creatures and Sending My Love sets.  It comes with 5 new woodland critter faces, 3 tails and the addition of a new standing body (in addition to several accessories and sentiments).  The faces from this look awesome with the sitting body from Comfy Creatures so I used that on a number of the cards shared here today.

Up first is a card that immediately came to mind while designing this set.  I feel like I was channeling my inner Laura Bassen on this one.  For my sentiment I used the word "hello" from our Sunny Sentiments set.

My second card combines the acorn from the new Autumn Splendor set shared yesterday, along with the hearts from our Stitched Hearts dies, a custom sentiment using our Sweet Script stamps and a pennant strip using our Fishtail Banner dies.

For this card I dressed up my critters with the feather headdress and pilgrim hat and put a little pumpkin and pie in their hands to create a Thanksgiving themed card.   I cut my pennant shape along the bottom edge with our Fishtail Banner II dies and then used the mini heart in the set to embellish the scalloped edge.

For my skunk card I used the same tail that was used on the squirrel card.  I love that it can work for both creatures depending on the way you color it.  To create my card I started by inking up my scalloped circle with Tumbled Glass distress ink and then flicked on color for my grass using Copic markers.  I then sponged on some Mowed Lawn distress ink along the bottom edge to fill in any missing spots of color.  I loved having the log and mushrooms to embellish with--They add a fun pop of color!

I love designs on the diagonal and this one was so fun and easy to create on a little 4.25" square card.  I embellished with hearts cut using our Stitched Heart dies and topped with glossy accents.  I finished off my card with a sentiment from our Sock Hop set.

For my last card I cut little polaroid frames on my Silhouette Cameo using cutting files by Lori Whitlock and then created little scenes in each.  I wanted it to look like a set of photographs were scattered across my card front.  

I must confess this was the last card I created and I had some random pieces left that I had colored including an extra tree stump, a handful of mushrooms and an unused skunk tail.  I decided to cut the tree stump in half and continue it on the two photos in the background and then just popped the tail in there to look like another critter photo might be sitting down below. I ended up using every last item I had stamped and colored which was a fun little personal challenge.
