I layered Always Artichoke, Real Red, Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue. I got the layered grass idea from this months' Stampin' Success. I cut the layers with my CM wavy cutter, stitched them on the sewing machine, then snipped the edge to make the 'grass.' The raccoon, squirrel and hole in the stump are done in red ultra-fine glitter. The tag is from Tiny Tags and punched with the new tiny tag punch.
The corners are cut with the new scallop corner punch. I wanted to do the border all the way around, but could NOT get it to come out right. Clearly not something that you want to do when you're in a rush!
The heart brad at the bottom is from the new Real Red Epoxy Brad sets.

I've been stamping for about 12 years or so and have been an independent Stampin Up! demonstrator for 8 years. I don't do many workshops, but am mainly a hobbyist -- and love it!
Stamping has given me an outlet for my creativity, for which I am truly grateful. I'm also a member of the Paper Crafters Sampler and the Splitcoast Stampers Creative Crew design teams. I hope that you enjoy my blog!
