Funky Fossil May Release - Introducing Forest Friends & Quirky Trees

Well here we go then with the next introduction to Funky Fossil's May release.

And yes it's a new set of animals and forest flora bits from the amazingly talented Donna! I know you've been looking forward to them. And a set of quirky tree dies too.


I'm right aren't I? They've gone right to the top of your wish list! And I'm still swooning over the new paper pad and have used another of the papers as a background for this first card.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Forest Friends
Paper: Mixed Media Kaleidescope
Ink: Versafine Clair, nocturne

As this set is called Forest Friends I thought it might be an idea to set the scene with the Birch Forest stencil. I went for a chilly very early Winter's morning vibe and thought the fox needed to be in camouflage as he make his way back home to his den.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Forest Friends
Stencil: Funky Fossil, Birch Forest
Ink: Versafine Clair, nocturne; Ranger distress oxide, kitsch flamingo, cracked pistachio, tumbled glass
Dies: Lawn Fawn, stitched rectangle frames; MFT Die-namics, double stitched rectangles

My next card to share today has a bit of a Scandi feel to it and I made use of many the smaller stamps included in the set as well as a few from previous releases too.

The fox is wearing his blues today - well a fox has to have an extensive wardrobe you know!

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Forest Friends; small stamps from Bee Geometric & Blooming Wreath
Inks: SU, night of navy, peekaboo peach, melon mambo, emerald envy, marina mist, crushed curry

I really couldn't go without showing you some of the tree die in action, so here's a couple of cards using them.

More of that paper and Donna's gorgeous rabbit plus some beautiful sparkly card from Papermill Direct.
Stamps: Funky fossil, Forest Friends

One final card today. And it had to be Christmas with those tree dies didn't it?

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Festive Phrases
Ink: Versafine Clair, nocturne; SU, whisper white
Dies: Funky Fossil, Quirky Trees
Stencil: Funky Fossil, Snow Storm
Card: Papermill Direct, non shed silver glitter, pale turquoise

It's been great to see you today, thanks so much for your visit. I'll be back again tomorrow with something completely different. If you've a photographer amongst your friends or family you'll love tomorrow's stamps and a die too.

Stay safe and keep crafting till then!
