This week's Featured Stamper is ScrappyHappy. What a fun and lovely gallery! I browsed the entire gallery, but I came back to this gorgeous scene. I was looking for inspiration for a Father's Day card that a friend asked me to make and I thought a scene like this would make a nice masculine card. I loved the dreamy kind of glow that Laura's card has with the darker edges, so I kept that look as I stenciled my scene using my new stencil from Erin Lee Creative. I dug around in my scraps for a mask to sponge a white moon because I forgot I was going to mask a moon. I do like the very soft look of this moon. I wanted a very woodsy feel because my friend does live very much near the Freetown State Forest and this sweet deer stamp really looks like the adorable little fawn that walked through my yard with her mom the other day. I also realized I had the perfect sentiment for this card. I decided I wanted to cut it with my ScanNCut, but I wanted to emboss it in white on black. So I first stamped the sentiment on white with black and scanned it to recognize and make the cut file. I cut it out of black and then embossed in white. The sentiment is popped up on foam squares and I finished with some stars in white gel pen. I'm very happy with this card and can't wait for my friend to see it! Thanks for the inspiration, Laura!

I loved that inspiration card too and you totally captured the feel of it here. Your scene is so sweet (is that a good term for a Father's Day card?) and I love the sentiment. Creative solution to your cutting and embossing dilemma. I love that your moon is a bit cloudy and not stark white. Happy accident for sure. Your friend is sure to adore this one. Fav'd so I can try your colors on a dreamy sky someday too. Great job.
