Woodsy

Just before Christmas I bought the whole Woodsy collection from Heartfelt creations for my Christmas gift, I couldn't decide what I liked best and you get a discount if you buy the whole collections when they first come out, normally I wouldn't have that kind of money but Christmas money was staring me in the face, LOL!

These cards went out to my nephews who were born on the same day but 3 years apart.  They are in the 40's now, my how time flies huh!


I hope I can explain this well, the tree in the background and the tree stump, bunny and bush is from the paper pack, there was a deer on that piece too, and the deer stamp matched it perfectly, so I just stamped out the deer and put it on top of where the deer was in the picture adding it with foam tape to lift it off the base.  The pine trees in the background were also stamped and colored, I just couldn't leave that space blank.  The trees in the foreground are also stamped and die cut as well as the bird, the sentiment was also in the paper pack all I did add was the very background paper from my stash.

Heartfelt creations -- Woodsy Critters die and stamp set, Woodsy Treescape die and stamp set, all colored w/markers, Woodsy paper collection


On this card the stamped pieces are the trees and the bird on a branch, all the rest is the paper from the paper pack, stamped a sentiment and added it all to an embossed background.

Another chilly day here but the sun is shinning bright and that makes me very happy :)
We are to get a dusting of snow in the morning, which I am happy that is all it will be but my hubby really wants to get some snow pictures.

Hope you are enjoying a nice relaxing and creative weekend,
Thanks so much for stopping by today,

Connie

I can't imagine you are sorry you got the whole set! These cars are lovely and masculine. Very neat, I especially like the birch trees.

Hope you have a good day. We are getting snowflakes here, but I double it wil even cover the ground...

I love this particular Heartfelt collection, and it's perfect for your nephews. I bet you'll get a lot of use out of it, considering all the masculine cards you make. I adore a woodsy scene. These are two really amazing cards, Connie! I absolutely love the leafy embossing on the second card, too.

Lovely cards Connie.

We've had a very wet day in the UK today (Sunday) I did get out for a while, but not too pleasant with raindrops that kept falling on my head !

Here's to a good new week

All the best Jan
