House That Stamps Built: Designer Choice Challenge






 It's time for a new challenge at The House that Stamps Built and I am excited to be starting the New Year as a member of their design team.   Our first challenge of the New Year is a Designers Choice Challenge (DCC) picked by Shirley and is Winter has just begun (not Christmas). 

I inked up 2719-K Large Pine Tree numerous times with Tim Holtz pine needles Distress Ink and did some 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation stamping.  I added embossing ink with my Versamark pen and added white embossing powder to the trees and a die cut deer.  After stamping 8606-E Happy Birthday with the same ink, I did some die cutting and dry embossing and this is the card I came up with.  One of my New Year resolutions is to make more masculine cards so this is my start.

We hope you will join the challenge this week at The House that Stamps Built - you don't have to use Repeat Impression stamps but you will get an extra chance to win a $25 gift certificate if you do use Repeat Impression stamps.  On my sidebar is a discount coupon for anytime you order from Repeat Impressions.

Here is what the talented DT has created:


Thanks for stopping by!

A few fun challenges:

Lovely effect of the little forest of generation stamping. Lovely snow effect too. I think this would make a great card for a male.

Love the way you've created this snowy first with a single tree. Great work on adding the snow too. That sweet deer looks right at home standing near the forest in the snow, and like the background embossing too. Pretty card, works for either gender I should think. Congrats on your new DT assignment. TFS & Happy New Year.
