Happy Sunday, peeps! Did you remember to turn your clocks back? An extra hour is ours today---well, not really, there are still only 24 hours in a day, it's all in our minds, right? Anyway, Anne Marie is our hostess today at the Players and here's her theme:
I have a lot of nice "woods" stamps but I really want to use this little line of trees I got last year from Lawn Fawn, so I went more "trees" than "woods" for my theme! Check it out:
I had some strips of Crumb Cake in my scrap bin and this little lineup fit perfectly on one of them; I stamped them in Memento ink and used an old Copic (I forget that I have those) to color it in. I found a marvelous white gel pen at a local stamp store and I highly recommend it; it's called Acrylista and it is by Zig. I used it to fill in the snowy tree tops and add some little snow on the ground:
The DSP I used is not really my favorite pattern, it's from Warmth and Cheer from a few years back, but I am trying to use up some of my stash (we all say that, right?) and the image seemed to fit. I gave my stamped piece a Garden Green mat that had been embossed with a zig-zag stitch die to mimic the stitching on the paper. My final touch was a sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas (I just isolated the "joy" with a marker) and some Real Red ribbon!
Our DT has created some fabulous woodsy cards--I invite you to check them all out at the Paper Players blog and share yours with us as well! We have been treated to some gorgeous creations lately, it's always fun to see what our stamping friends cook up!
I sent my friend Michele some diecut card fronts, and she promptly turned one into the CUTEST Halloween card ever and sent it to Cassidy:
Isn't that some collection of googly eyes?! Wowza!
Cassidy LOVED it....what a sweet gesture! Thanks, Michele!!♥
