My project for today features the sets Thrill of Hope and Christmas Wishes.  Using water color paper, I started by stamping and embossing the deer images.  I created a circular mask using a piece of copy paper with a circle die cut window.  Next, I added the trees using Ranger distress ink. I sponged ink around the edges and then added the sentiment and some sequins to finish things off.



My second card uses Thrill of Hope along with Home for the Holidays. After stamping and embossing the lab image from Home for the Holidays, I added the trees and several layers of distress inks to create a antique-y look.  Once dry, I added some red glitter glue to sparkle up the trees and some snowflakes.

TTFN, Jane

  12. Wow! Your cards are really wonderful. I love "nature scenes," and if they have trees, that is even better! Your designs may be "rustic," but they have a very warm and inviting feel to them.
