My adventures through Pinterest kept showing me these very cute card designs using these easy-to-use stencils by Dutch Doobadoo and after enough of them, I couldn't resist anymore. I have so many little animal stamps and dies, and a log house to set a scene like that was a no brainer.
I went to my "wood grain" section in my paper collection and found one that looked like natural wood, not planks, to trace the stencil onto. Since this is my first try I did learn that perhaps it would have been better to trace on the back of the paper, not the front, but my pencil lines came out in the cutting stage.
Since they had not been put away yet, I had a pretty big selection of new Hello Bluebird stamps sitting on my desk and it was a matter of moments to audition the characters on my project to see which I'd like to use. I coloured them up in Copic markers and fussy cut them out. I then finished off the project with a little die cut grass, die also from Hello Bluebird.
I hope you like this project and got inspired by it as I did from the works on Pinterest.
