Snowy Reindeer

Ok, so I totally blitzed and almost forgot to make my card for the progressive Creative Chick Challenge by Stretch n Bubbles. If you missed it and would like to purchase the reindeer you can do so at the SNB shop. There were a few firsts for me on this card. I had never worked with foil before and think that my first attempt was ok but I won't try and do it over edges of paper next time. I had never used the snow marker before and I see it being used in the future. I love how it puffed up when heated (although I forgot to heat before applying cream card stock to card so I warped the card).

Digi: Reindeer from Stretch n Bubbles
Paper: Scraps
Sentiment: "Happy Holidays" done in silver foil
Snow: Snow Marker (puffs up when heated)

Autumn Blessing

Okay so I am having problems today getting the pic to face the correct direction. I used tumbled glass Distress Ink to color the background. Then I used a tree stamp purchased from Hobby Lobby and stamped it 3 times. The apples on the tree and ground are puff paint. The ground is brown and green Distress Ink(sorry can't remember which colors). The basket of apples is a digi stamp from a progressive challenge at Stretch N' Bubble. You can purchase it at their shop.I added the wording and cut 3 circles and layered them behind the digi.
