WSC57: New Stampin’ Up!

wsc57-lcraig-091208.jpg

About every 2 weeks for the last few months, Wes goes out to check his trail camera and deer stand. The season doesn’t open until November, but it’s somewhat of a big deal around here, similar to dove season in Texas. So, Wes will bring in the memory card from the motion sensitiveΒ  camera, and the girls and I gather around the computer to see what has happened out there over the last few weeks. We ‘ooh and aah’ for Wes when we see a nice buck flash on the screen. Pop the popcorn, friends, we’re big time excitement here in Missouri!

This set, Nature’s Silhouette, was the first thing I chose from the new Stampin’ Up! fall catalog. I normally don’t purchase stamps because they make me think of Wes, but he often says something similar to this when he’s begging off to go hunting. I don’t know to many church going women who don’t swoon when their man starts talking about worship and God and stuff. πŸ˜‰

My first SU! catalog order arrived this week. I wish a little sunshine (for a cleaner picture) would have come along with it. The tree and the grass on the main image were colored with Tombow makers. The sky is airbrushed with my Copic Marker system. The deer is stamped in Close to Cocoa. The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip Craft ink. I always switch to pigment or craft ink when I’m working with non-neutral cardstock. Felt ribbon and hardware are from the new SU! catty, as well.

I’ve got another card to write up for sweet Taylor, so I’ll leave you with links for more sketch-spiration, sign off here and be back in a few.

  6. Lori, you did a great job with this set. This was also one of my first purchases out of the new catalog. I had not thought about putting a camera out in our woods to see what travels by….I’ll have to mention that to my hubby & neighbor (BIG deer hunter!). Hope you don’t mind if I CASE the card.

  13. How funny that I just stumbled upon this card… my DH and kiddos are out checking their deer stand right now. No technology involved for us though! πŸ™‚ This card is just gorgeous, by the way!
