Stamp Review Crew: Wonderland Edition
Well, the SECOND snow has fallen here, and melted. It has been quite warm for November in Minnesota this year. It is still getting into the 40's and 50's F during the day, and is barely below freezing at night! And that is OK. There will be plenty of the fluffy white stuff any time now! This stamp set sure speaks to anyone who lives amid the pines and snow. There are sure to be deer running around in those pines, and it is actually deer hunting season here. Must be careful letting the dogs out! We should almost have orange vests for them to wear :)

If you are following along in order, then you just arrived from Debra Burgin's blog. I just know she had something amazing for us!

This first card is actually one I made for a swap. I have made about 20 of these so far, and they are quick and easy! It is also one of the cards we are making in my November Stamp Class. I added Gently Falling embossing on the actual card front base, and the sentiment is heat embossed with gold.

More stamping inside! I think I love those trees...

I envisioned northern lights when I was making this card. The trees are stamped in black on the vellum, then heat set. I stamped them again in Versamark and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. So sparkly!!

And the inside.

Edited to add: I had some requests for a video, so here it is!

I had lots of other ideas, but I have not had time to bring them to fruition... I will have to share them later :) Now it is time to go see what Nikki Spencer has for us!
