Oh Dear with Pink Persimmon

Happy Friday dear friends!!  It has been quite a week!  My kids visited from Washington, my sweet hubby hurt his back while on the job, and we are temporarily leaving the empty nest.  In the midst of all the craziness, I was able to work on a couple of cards for my favorite stamp company, Pink Persimmon.  I used their adorable Oh Dear stamp sets and had a ton of fun!!

My first thought when taking these cute little dear out of their packages was that they reminded me of my childhood.  I had a folk art style bed that was painted with little dear and hearts and I just loved that bed!  I googled "folk art" and this is what I came up with for my inspiration:
Inspiration Link:  Threadbear

and with that inspiration, I made this:
I selectively inked the folk art tree stamp and created the little flower motif in the background.  I colored the dear with Copic Markers and stamped the sentiment over the top.  Very easy and very folk art inspired!

Supplies used:
Pink Persimmon Oh Dear Stamps
Papertrey Ink Rustic White Cardstock and button
Crate Paper's Emma's Shoppe Papers
Prima Lace
Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger: Worn Lipstick, Crushed Olive, Wild Honey and Tea Dye
Hand Dyed Seam Binding  MemrieMare
Copic Markers: Light Walnut E57 and Walnut E59

In the second card, I chose to fussy cut the dear out of subtle patterned paper:

Supplies Used:
