All is Calm, All is Bright {Take 2 Thursday}

Hello there,

My friend, Lindsay and I are back today for another Take 2 Thursday. This time, we are using the sweet Storybook stamp set from Avery Elle.  This the darling animal images in this set were hand drawn by the talented Heather Campbell.

 I paired Storybook with the Let It Snow stamp set, to create a wintery scene.

I stamped the birch trees from Let it Snow in Hero Arts Wet Cement ink on a Fine Linen card base.  I die cut the snow bank using Avery Elle's Custom Panels Elle-ments Die and stamped the sentiment from Let it Snow in red ink. I lightly inked the snowflake background with Avery Elle's White Pigment Ink and stamped it over top of the birch trees.

Next I stamped and die cut the bird and deer from Storybook onto card stock.  I will readily admit that I am not the best colorer, so stamping images on colored card stock is a simple, no fuss way to add a pop of color to my images.  I added a few spots to the deer with a white colored pencil.

I adhered the deer and bird to the card and added a red gem to the deer's nose to transform him to a famous holiday icon. ;)

Be sure to stop by Lindsay's blog to check out her use of this adorable set!  

That's it for me, for now, but I will be back in a couple hours with Avery Elle's Fall Release Blog Hop! 

Thanks for stopping by!
