Celebrate with RG Studio 360!!! Make Amazing Happen!!!

Hi Crafty Friends!

Today is the DAY!  The RG Studio 360 new website launches today and we are having a great blog hop in honor of the new opening.  Each Studio 360 Designer on the blog hop will be giving away their own personal favorite digital download to one lucky winner who posts a comment on their blog. So there will be lots of chances to win.

Today's blog hop features the "Foxy Fall" digital download and it is SO CUTE!  I have completed two cards using this digital download. You should have arrived here from Michelle's YouTube video and to continue, you will go to Melinda's post next.  If you get lost on the way, a full list is at the bottom of this post or go to RG Shares.

My first card is a landscape fold A2 card featuring two Foxy Fall characters.

I created the background of this card using a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of white 80lb card stock.  I used the ink smooshing technique by inking an acrylic block with green, yellow, and blue inks then spritzing it with water.  I placed the card stock on the block, let it soak up all the color until I liked the results, and set it aside to dry.  I fussy cut the two foxes from the download along with the arrows and colored them with Copic Markers, but any coloring medium would work perfectly. I used a rectangle die to cut the background piece to 4 x 5 1/4 and adhered the two foxes using foam tape to pop them out.  The arrows were placed directly on the background. I also used foam tape on the sentiment and inked the edges of it.  I adhered the background piece to a slightly larger piece of green card stock and glued this to an A2 white card base folded using the landscape mode.  After the card was assembled, a clear glaze was placed on the foxes and the arrows.  I used decorative drops to accent the background. 

My second card is a portrait A2 card featuring a bear with a wobble element.

I created the background of this card using the ink blending technique with red, orange, and yellow inks on a 4 x 5 1/2 piece of white 80lb card stock.  I splattered the background with water after it had been inked and let it dry.  I die cut the background using a postage edged die. I colored the cute bear from the download and made extra copies of the download to get twelve leaves and colored them.  I fussy cut the bear and leaves and adhered the leaves to the background.  I used a piece of twine to add interest behind the fox.  The bear was placed on a wobble mechanism and put in the center of the leaves.  Glaze was added to the purple headdress.  The sentiment was adhered at the top of the card. As a finishing touch,  decorative drops were added to the background.

"Foxy Fall" is an adorable digital download that can be used all year long!  I love all of the digital downloads but my very favorite is "Wild Blooms".  It is so easy to color and looks professional every time.  Make sure you comment on this blog post and you might be the lucky winner of "Wild Blooms".  All winners will be announced by the end of the month. Pictures of both the downloads can be found at the bottom of this post.
