November Blog Hop starts tomorrow!

As you all know November is the time to gear up for Christmas shopping. Our new sets are released tomorrow and we start this month's blog hop so don't forget to come back then.

 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:

"Winter Scenes" 
This one is not to be missed and we are showcasing it today along with this month's mini set - "Oh Deer"!

I will start by showing you the simple cards I have made with Oh Deer The first one is for my Brother - I think I am allowed to be rude to him!

The second thing I have to show you also uses Oh Deer and it holds a gift card for my nephew.  I stamped onto a small design Christmas paper with clear ink and then used gold embossing powder - just decided to do something different!

The next two cards use the new Winter Scenes set which I love and I think you will too.  The first card is a simple layout but it shows the stamp off.  I coloured with Prismacolor pencils, added white pen and Stickles on the snow falling and then punched snowflakes and tied them on with embroidery thread before attaching the ribbon bow.

My last card for today is made using the Winter Scenes set and a sketch from VLVNov2012 Week4.  I used the snowflakes, embossed them and then sponged shades of blue distress inks on the panel.  The image was coloured with Prismacolor pencils and Copics.


  1. Gorgeous cards Janine!!! Oh my your ornament card is GORGEOUS!!!!! I love how you colored in the house and the shading on the ornament itself is beautiful!!

  2. Beautiful! I was going to say something about each one but then my comment would have been too long, lol! :)

  3. Wow, look at you go with these fabulous card! I really do enjoy the uniqueness of the buck stamped on patterned paper!


I love to hear your thoughts - please come back soon.
