Paper Smooches Pop-Up Stage Card

Good Evening All!

Hope you had a wonderful day! I had a chance to sneak down to my Stampin Studio and play around so I thought I would share what I did!

I have been wanting to play along in the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge for awhile now and when I saw this week's challenge, which is a designer draft, I knew IMMEDIATELY what I wanted to do! Here is my card:

This is a Pop-Up Stage card which I have been wanting to try for awhile now. My little critters and the fire "pop up" when you open the card up. The Designer Draft Sketch from paper Smooches this week is what I used on the background piece. Here is the Draft Sketch:

When I saw this sketch I immediately thought of the piece on the left as a tree, and the bottom area as grass and what better set to use with trees and grass then my super favorite Paper Smooches set called Happy Camper!

Here is a close up of the stage area:

I colored all of my critters using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers. My marshmallows have Liquid Applique applied, then heat set so it puffs and then I used my markers to "toast" them.

Here are some close ups of all of my critters!

My bear - don't you love the eyelashes I added? I also tried to texture the fur with my spectrum markers.

My Deer! You can see the Blanket roll and Skeeter Spray that is from a Stampin Up! stamp set called Under The Stars behind my deer.

My Raccoon which is also from the Stampin Up! Stamp set called Under the Stars. The marshmallow stick that he is holding is from the Paper Smooches set Happy Camper.

My Ant which is from the Paper Smooches Alfresco stamp set, and he is carrying a yummy smore that is from the Stampin Up! stamp set - Under the Stars. I added some fun google eyes to my ant too!

The stars in the sky are from my Spellbinders Star Circles Nestibilities. The Grass is made using the C.C. Designs Cutters Die Grass Border Die.

I hope you enjoyed my little scene as much as I had fun making it! This is my very first pop up stage card and they are really fun to do! I used the tutorial for the Pop-Up Stage from Splitcoaststampers.
