It’s that time of year again when my team mates and I are celebrating the start of a new catalogue with a blog hop featuring our favourite new products from the Autumn/Winter catalogue. There are so many gorgeous products in this catalogue that it took me a while to decide what to make, but the gorgeous Dashing Deer bundle was calling to me so here’s what I came up with after a little play.
Teamed with the Joyous Noel Speciality DSP and a basic layout using the Layering Ovals Framelits as a focal point I think I’ve created three lovely and very different looking cards. This gorgeous paper has copper foiling on one side of each sheet and is the perfect background for that deer die cut.
To finish off this first card I embossed the Happiest Christmas Wishes in copper and die cut from the label in the Petals and More Framelits set and I also added three copper flowers which are dies from the Detailed Deer Framelits.
For the second card I wanted the colour combo to be Merry Merlot and Gold, which shows that the back sides of the Joyous Noel paper are just as gorgeous. I love how well that deer stamped, I think its just beautiful. For the swirly corners I definitely recommend using the multipurpose adhesive sheets as those swirls are delicate.
For my third card I wanted to add more interest to the oval in the middle so I created a background by firstly sponging on some Pool Party to the top of the oval. I then stamped three trees from the Timeless Tidings stamp set. To create the snowy effect I cut out another oval and then cut it in half using a wiggly line. I then took the bottom half and covered it in Wink of Stella which when dried gave a lovely glistening effect just like snow. I think the new Frosted White Shimmer Paint would also have a similar effect.
So thats my little celebration of the Dashing Deer Bundle from the new Autumn/Winter catalogue.
