Fall is my favorite time of the season. The color of the leaves, cooler weather, sweaters, hot chocolate, pumpkin everything, Halloween and Thanksgiving! I can go on and on. But the main focus today is the newly-released stamp set by Jessica Lynn Original called “Love You Deer”. This stamp set is just great for nature-inspired cards, scrapbook layouts and such.
The first two cards that you see below are Fall-inspired cards.
The sentiment on the second card is a bit hilarious and PETA please do not be upset with me! This is the only card that I have not shown my daughter yet; I can just hear her giving me a hard time about this one!). Kidding aside, this was a bit challenging for me. I just hope I was able to give you examples that will make you want to go to your craft room and stamp away! Deer Hunter wives, time to make your husbands (or partners) some wonderful and funny cards!
The third card below is my favorite. I decided to make it classy and simple by only using 3 colors on this card! I wanted the Deer image to stand out. I think it turned out really beautiful!
First, I colored the deer using my Copic markers. I then stamped and heat-embossed the trees, hill, snowflakes and snowman in the background with white embossing powder. I proceeded to die-cut the snowy hills using my border dies with vellum, glitter card stock and regular white card stock to create the snowy hills. I also used my liquid applique to create the snow in the background. I finished the design by adding a red bow on the deer and used my matching red embossing powder to heat-emboss the sentiment on the vellum. What do you guys think? Which one is your favorite?
