Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies

The Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies (p 9) are an elegant
collection of images.  These dies also enable quick
cards, because you are layering textures, via
Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, colored paper
or foil.  I love the shiny effect!

Beautiful Blizzard

This is another card using the Beautiful Blizzard set, on page 39
of the Holiday Catalog,   The background
elements, including splotches, snowflakes and crosshatch,
that are kind of monochromatic, with a few Blackberry Bliss
highlights.  I think my love of this set has to do with
the easy way in which it lets you create a
watercolor look.

Lovely As a Tree with Detailed Deer

Lovely As a Tree has been around for about a million
years.  That's because it is an elegant card that makes
it easy to create, using different techniques.  In this 
example, I inked up the tree with markers and then
spritzed with water.  That created a bit of a watercolor look.

I added sponged deer from the Detailed Deer
Thinlits Dies on page 9 of the Holiday Mini.  
The sentiment and sparkles come from
Star of Light on page 98 of the annual catalog.
