Hello friends! Really hope that you’re having a great week as we start to dip down into cooler temps and that means that Autumn is coming to a close (sadly) and winter is upon us along with Christmas! Are you ready? I’m working on things…that’s all I can say! I need to get more motivated for sure! Many things are already done, but it’s the double checking to make sure…and sometimes it’s not! LOL
Recently, I needed to make a birthday card for hubby, so I pulled out a card kit I had from last year and came up with this one for him:
This was a really fun one to do from the Simon Says Stamp Woodland Whimsy card kit from last year. (I linked the stamp set and dies still available.) My husband is a huge fan of outdoor wilderness and especially deer in the Autumn season as they can be easier to spot with the falling leaves. So it just seemed like the type of card to make suited for him.
I’ve colored in all of the images with Copic markers and die cut them out with the exception of the birch trees as there were no dies included with the set. I placed them behind my die cut circle from the woodgrain paper included with the kit. I backed it with another piece of the paper from the kit as well. I even tucked in the back part of the deer’s feet along with a leaf to make it part of the scene. I like the banner from the set which is left blank so that you can add whatever greeting you want with it.
The little heart above the deer was also fussy cut out and then I covered it with a glitter brush pen as well as some crystal effects over top for the shine. I thought about adding some sequins, but decided it wasn’t needed. The scene was layered over a piece of cardstock included with the kit and then I stamped some of the birch trees onto a coordinating envelope as well.
Also thought I’d share some other projects that I’ve been working on since my last post. It seems that I’ve become a little addicted to taking those classes and events…honestly don’t need to be taking them, but sometimes it’s just fun to participate in the fun with fellow crafters! I do enjoy sharing with those like-minded crafters like myself!😁
These are all projects I’ve made using products from Inky Stamper. (I will link to the information in the descriptions below. ***If you are on my website, just click on the photos to enlarge them to see better and the wording will also be more visible.)
Inky Stamper has just came out with several new stamp sets this month…super cute and great for Christmas! So be sure to check out the store’s front page to see them!
I’ve also been working on some Christmas things that I will share soon as well as some other requested commissioned cards that I’ve recently finished. I would like to get those Christmas cards finished up early for a change! How about you?! Are you all done creating for the Holidays yet?
Until next time, thanks for stopping in today friends!
