Crafty Creations for 18th November

No post last week as we didn’t complete our cards. But we managed to get that finished and one more as well. Everyone fell in love with the cute Bambi from some retired Stampin’ Up! DSP.

We did use the Torn Paper Technique to create the snow drifts at Bambi’s feet, then highlighted it with some Dazzling Diamonds sprinkled on Liquid glass.  The snowflakes, with the smaller one stamped off, were inked with Tip Top Taupe – a change for me from Crumb Cake – and came from the now retired Endless Wishes. The lovely bold sentiment is from Flurry of Wishes in the current catalogue, stamped in Chocolate Chip. The pine cones and needles  are from Peace This Christmas, stamped in Chocolate Chip and Garden Green.

 A Wink of Stella, and some pearls finished this card.

Our other card, from the week before, used the Totally Trees Stamp Set,  Botanicals For You and  The Botanical Builder Thinlits. The Whisper White was embossed with the Petal Burst EF,over laid with a strip of Irresistibly Yours DSP that was coloured in Pool Party.  Some masking of the sun and water in Pool Party and Sweet Sugar Plum made the background with the island, leaves and flowers just finishing the scene.

It feels like we were at a Tropical Island, just waiting for the bar tender to bring us some  Piña Coladas or Margarita by the waters edge. Ahhhh!

Of course like most people these days some of the inspiration was from Pinterest. Where would be without it? november-palm-tree
