Fall Chipmunk

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a fall-themed card!  This little chippy has something yummy in his cup!


I've used this adorable image from Deedee's Digis - Fall Warm-up - several times before, yet I never tire of his chubby cheeks and cuteness!  Sadly Deedee's Digis is no longer in business but I continue to enjoy her adorable designs.  In this case I fussy-cut the pre-coloured image and popped him up on foam tape.

The striped background was made with my watercolours and then die-cut to add the stitched swirls. I used dies for the tree, leaves, and grass, and I stamped a sentiment from Your Next Stamp.  I did some inking with Distress Ink on the grass to add some texture.

Gorgeous background, that stitching gives so much movement, like leaves swirling. That chipmunk is adorable in his wooly sweater clutching his hot beverage! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Double D, Featured Mood Board Challenge, Donna, DT Member.

Hi Kitty! Such lovely card, it speaks of Autumn all over and love the happy sentiment!!! Your water coloured background looks so sweet and you have had a brilliant idea using that die to add the stitched swirls, wow!!! It seems to me to hear the breeze! :D Love the chipmunk with the cup -how cute and fun little guy!- and the scene is so well constructed with that tree and the stitched falling leaves!! Well done!!
Thanks for your comments. I love crafting with Aurora and we have both so much fun! She is very productive, I instead have to search her the items she asks, and also have to reorder and cleaning all around, after the crafting session... LOL :D
But I love looking at her creativity!
Big hugs!!

I can see why you use that chubby cheeked image frequently as he is adorable. I love the clothing he is wearing and also the nice cup of coffee in hands. Great little scene for the card.

PS, it has been 2 years now since Hurricane Irma, and our oak trees are still not making any acorns - it will be the third winter in a row without acorns. Sigh...

What a wonderful way to combine a pre-colored image with dies and ink blending, wow! I love the stitched swirls in the background that give the feel of a breezy autumn day. Fall is my favorite time of year and you captured it perfectly!

Karenladd said...

I forgot to ask, but what die did you use for the stitched swirls background? I love that design and effect and have never seen a cover die like that. Thanks!
