Hero Arts Framelits

Hi!

I've been playing with the Hero Arts, Reindeer Framelit, Stamp and Die-Cut set lately. Such a cute set! I made this first card the other day. It uses a reindeer and the trees from the set.

I thought it would be fun to create a little scene inside a scalloped circle card. The sky is Sticky Back Canvas, shaded with Distress Inks. I put the whole scene together, then cut the shape with a die and my Cuttlebug.

I wanted to play some more with the trees in the same set today, but ended up just using one. I stamped it several times across the panel and cut out three others from patterned paper. 

It was such a beautiful, fall day today, I just had to shoot the photo outside. At the exact time I was pushing the shutter button, a pretty leaf fell right next to my card. Thought it went well with the colors, so I left it in the photo.

Thanks for coming by! Hope everyone has a great week! :)

Barb, what great cards you are making with the cute trees! I love the scene in the first fun, scalloped card...so fun! I love the second card, too...such pretty colors. I can see why you'd want to take the picture outside..it looks like you had a gorgeous fall day (it rained all day here...cold and dreary!). Great cards!

Cute catds, Barb! So glad you left the leaf in the 2nd one. We just don't get to see the beautiful fall foliage here.

Maureen Morton said...

Simply amazing, Barb! Your photos are lovely, as are those knock-out cards, and really capture the change of season. I love that cute reindeer, but that parade of trees is spectacular! I am not ready to think Christmas, but I am so glad that you have a head start. You amaze!

Brenda said...

Loving your cards today Barb! That little scene is just too cute, I adore that reindeer! And there is something about that shape tree with such clean lines, I love it! Have a wonderful day!
