Framed Deer Trio Scene

Good Sunday morning.  My project today was created for the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge. The inspiration site was an Etsy store called Color Watercolor. There were lots of different animal paintings but I was especially inspired by all the deerI don’t know how many times I have created similar scenes with the Deer Trio die set but I just love them.  I think they are so graceful and elegant and yet so perfect for a masculine card.

I used two images from the WPlu9 Coming Up Roses set to create the forest background and ground area.  I took a photo of the small branch and small dotted leaf pattern stamps to show you.  They are each only an inch long but are perfect to create a lush background. I started by sponging in a green ground area for the main background scene as well as a piece of scrap paper to cut for the front ground piece.  I stamped the branch several times across the background and then filled in with the leaf stamp to create the appearance of a forest. I cut across the scrap paper with my deckle scissors to create the front ground piece.  I finished the background by sponging in a blue sky using a hand cut cloud template and ink blending tool.

I cut the deer and applied and blended the ink using a mini applicator.  Have you tried these yet?  I love them.  I added a few white dots to the baby deer with a white marker.  I cut a Bare Branch and Grass Border to use to add some growth around the feet of the deer.

I cut the double matted frame from Ellen’s Tan Woodgrain Embossed cardstock and sponged it with brown ink to add more depth.  This is wonderful cardstock to add the feel of wood to your project.  I also have the White Woodgrain Embossed cardstock. It’s really pretty as well.  I attached the two frames together with thin strips of mounting tape.  I applied ATG adhesive to the back of the smaller frame, attached the grass section and then attached it over the scene with another layer of mounting tape.  I attached the momma deer in the scene with one layer of mounting tape and attached the daddy and baby with a double layer of tape.  I finished by tucking the bare branch pieces and grass around the feet of the deer with glossy accents

  1. This could have been my backyard four nights ago. I was preparing dinner when I noticed three deer literally right out my back door. I took a video with my cell phone to send to my sons. Our back yard abuts Lettuce Lake Park (nature reserve), we get a lot of deer, no more roses for me. They prefer my lawn to the forest filled with goodies . . . .LOL! Your card is adorable and you did a fabulous job with realism! Hugs!!!

  2. Gorgeous woodsy scene with the forest and deer. Love your combinations of stamping and die cuts, always lovely as all your other scenes are.

  3. Good afternoon, Kitti. I too love these deer. they are colored so well, look real in the gorgeous woods. We used to camp at Inks Lake State park here in Texas and they would walk freely through the campsite. Lets you take pictures if not close. Just a visit from friends of the forest. Of course you had better put things away, they do get hungry. But basically no harm done. Another reason to love scenes like this for memories, and love God’s creation….have a good week-end…..LOL

  4. Kittie, I love the deer and the tree’s in the back ground…. your talent so amazes me….. The perfect Fall card for sure…. Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas…

  5. It still boggles my mind as to how you come up with extraordinary cards everyday. This is such a peaceful and beautiful scene, it is amazing how authentic your designs are. TFS.
