Erin Lee Creative August Release & Blog Hop (With Prizes!)

Welcome! You should have arrived from Jennifer's Blog. If not, no worries - the complete blog hop list is below and you can visit everyone to better your chance for prizes. Now, let me just tell you there are SO MANY awesome products being released today that I have NO idea how you will decide on what to buy! I mean look at all this goodness! 

Seeing all that it was hard deciding what to make. I ended up using just one stamp set and three different stencils to make 3 cards. Below is the stamp set Fall Critters 4x6 Stamp Set.

These are the 3 stencils I used: Plaid (released last month), Funhouse Squares & Floral Wreath

Here's a quick look at the three cards. It was brought to my attention that it looks like I made a Fall, Winter and Spring card using all of the animals. Total accident on my part but a happy accident at that! 
For the squirrel card I used distress inks on the background and Copics to color him. 

For the Fox I again used Distress Inks for the backgound and copics for coloring. I fussy cut the fox out and popped her up to give her some dimension. 

And for the last card I used watercolors on everything. I then colored in the rabbit using my pixie dust glitter so she shines beautifully. 

I don't know which one is my favorite. I love them all! And I love that one stamp set and 3 stencils can make all that. The possibilites are endless!

OH MY GOSH!!!!!! I can't believe how adorable and DIFFERENT these animals are. Animals are my favorite sort of stamp, and these are just so different and cool! I love the chubby squirrel especially. My grandkids would love this. They love to chase and watch the squirrels--they adore them. I am so in love with these, you have no idea :)

I love critter stamps! These look so fun with the distress backgrounds. I love how smooth they look and especially when they fade out. Love your cards!
