Winter Cabin

I'm combining three challenges today: the Our Daily Bread Shining the Light challenge- to use heat embossing ad dry embossing,  the Splitcoaststampers sketch, and the Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use it challenge - brush work.

I heat embossed the cabin and rabbit and water colored the sky and colored the cabin with Stampin Up markers. The background designer paper was dry embossed and I added a greeting from the ODBD Christmas Carols set.


I have a soft spot in my heart for bunnies and this bunny from the Midwinter set is extra sweet! I wanted to make him a focal point so I placed him on a bed of branches made with the ODBD Fancy Foliage dies.

Oak and Olive

I'm joining in the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper challenge, this week the FS is Jamieruthp, who has a wonderful gallery, I chose this card as my inspiration.

I loved the colors and leafy theme of the inspiration card, so I heat embossed my wonderful new image from the Power Poppy Olive and Oak stamp set and water colored it with Stampin Up markers. I added a strip of music along the bottom with a trim made with a Recollections border punch.

This is one of my favorite scripture verses and it was stamped on a MFT Die-namics Double Stitched Oval stax and I added red enamel dots.

Stamps: Power Poppy Olive and Oak stamp set.
