Friends Are The Best

  High Hopes Rubber Stamps and the design team are celebrating friends and friendship this month with the Winter Friends Release. It is full of adorable images and sentiments - perfect for sending a card to let someone know you are thinking about them. I know I couldn't have gotten through the last couple years without a little help from my peeps. 

I have quite a few tags in my stamp collection but when I saw the Moose & Friends (TDG019) stamp in this release, I decided to challenge myself to use a tag stamp in a different way. Instead of stamping a sentiment in tag portion, I added a little scene just for something different and fun. This trio has spent the day in the outdoors and have shared some laughs and made some new friends! 

I stamped this adorable group of friends and coloured them with Copic markers. Next I hand fussy cut them leaving a thin white edge, glued them to card stock and cut them again leaving a thin blue edge a little wider than the white edge. I set them aside and went through the papers in the My Favorite Winter pad from Echo Park until I found some I thought worked together with my stamp and colours. I cut the pieces for my card base along with matching card stock to create my layers and used a loopy oval die to cut out one piece to create some interest. 

To create the scene inside the tag portion, I picked the blue snow flake paper, stamped the tag portion of the stamp and hand fussy cut it. Next I used a hills die to cut some snow banks for the tag as well as the rest of the background. I glued these pieced down and added some die cut trees and deer to finish off the scene. 
The sentiment was stamped and cut out, added a fish tail piece underneath it and some enamel dots finish off my card.
