Winter's Scenery

Saturday we had Make and Takes featuring Prickley Pear Christmas stamps.  Here is one of the cards we made with the Reindeer Kisses stamp.  I colored the deer with Copic Markers, then cut it out with an oval die.  Finally I sponged around it with Stormy Sky Distress Ink.  The Bare Tree is a die cut from Prickley Pear and the sentiment is from the Snowflake Inserts Stamp set.  Don't forget, there are more inspiration to be found on the PPRS blog too.  Happy Winter!

Winter's Reflection

With our first snowfall of the winter season yesterday, I thought that this Winter's Reflection image is perfect for today.  This stamp is a new from the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Holiday release.  I love the images of other deer stamps that they carry and would be perfect along with it.  The papers are from Paper Loft and have the woodsy, masculine mood to them...perfect for this forest scene.  The sentiment was from a clear set and was cut out with an oval die.  The small pieces of holly were cut from a larger holly leaf die from Cheery Lynn.  Check out more holiday samples on the PPRS blog.  Keep warm and drive's that time of year!

Withered Leaves

Today I am using the Wheat Stalks from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps as my main image.  It is the season of falling leaves and harvest, so what a perfect way celebrate the season.  I stamped the wheat with Gathered Twigs distress ink.  Then I used my removable tape technique to frame the kernels of grain.  Then I used the wheat die from Cheery Lynn for another accent for the theme.  Finally I finished the card with the sentiment to remember that God sees things so much differently than we do and aren't we thankful for that.  See what other seeds of inspiration has been sown on the PPRS blog.  Hope you have a happy fall!
