Vintage Impressions

These Vintage Leaves stamps are fabulous, and the Woodland Impressions make the perfect backdrop! To create the background, I tapped the Crumb Cake stamp pad directly onto the embossing folder, prior to running it through the machine.

Warm Winter Wishes

I started out just making a card with the sled on it. Then, one thing led to another and before I knew it, I had four cards! Actually, it took a couple of days to carve out enough time to create all of them. Cutting those little pine cones took a bit longer - but so worth it. Also, because I wasn't sure how the items were going to be placed on the three remaining cards, I cut each of those images.

Stamps - Hardwood (133035), Winter Wishes (139745)
Ink - Early Espresso (126974), Mossy Meadow (133645)

Little Red Scarf

Playing around with some ink and the Woodland embossing folder I came up with an interesting background. I then added a little snow on the branches, but wasn't sure what to place on top. Obviously, it needed some color. That's when the little red scarf floated into my imagination. I added the leafs just to give the card a bit more interest.
