Rustic Retreat

I got my Holiday Catalog preorder and I threw some Annual Catalog stamp sets in because I like to pace myself when ordering so my husband doesn’t take my credit card away.  🙂

I really liked the Rustic Retreat stamp set when I first saw it because it is perfect for masculine cards, and what better for a background than plaid!  I make the plaid background using the Buffalo Check stamp with Early Espresso ink, Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker, Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker, White Chalk Marker, and a t-square.

Say Goodbye to Jar of Love and Hardwood

Jar of Love is another stamp set that has not gotten enough love from me.  For this card, I stamped the jar on vellum using Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I put it on some Wood Textures paper and Buffalo Check stamped paper that I had laying on my work table.  The background is Hardwood stamped using Crumb Cake on Crumb Cake.

Buffalo Check Dashing Deer

I absolutely love the Buffalo Check background stamp and I thought pairing it with the Dashing Deer bundle would be great.  I love how this card came out.  I even used the beautiful deer die on the inside.
