Creative Inking Blog Hop - Celebrating Winter!

Creative inking logoWelcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop, I am so excited to be part of this hop and I know you will enjoy all the projects! I chose one of the patterns in the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack for both of my projects today.  First frost dsp
At first glance, most of the patterns in this paper are definitely not very manly but the pattern I chose to work with certainly can be.  :-) Detailed deer card I used the Detailed Deer Framelits to crop an image from the layer of Crumb Cake. I kept the negative piece and placed it over a striped piece of the DSP.  This was layered on a piece of Soft Suede and then the small flag was added to the back.  I added the main layer to a piece of Very Vanilla that was run through the Big Shot with the 3D Dynamic Corrugated Embossing Folder.  I stamped my sentiment from the Best Birds set on a 3/4" strip of vanilla and then added a snippet of Soft Suede to the right edge and flagged the left.  Everything is on a Crumb Cake card base.
Detailed deer cardThis card was very simple to create and the layout could be used with any Designer Series Paper you may have.  I inked the group of trees from Winter Woods in Crumb Cake and cropped the naked trees from the In the Woods Thinlits out of Soft Suede set to create my wintry scene.  My sentiment is from the Country Home set and I added a few leftover sequins from a recent Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I love that I have a few extra goodies from most of those kits!!
