Life is Good Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us in today's Life is Good blog hop. Theresa did a great job illustrating this nature-themed set. I always love her realistic drawings, perfect for masculine and/or vintage cards, which I am loving right now.

I stamped the trees using Memento Rich Cocoa on the text patterned paper, which I stitched onto the distressed white layer. The sentiment is from Rupa's Warm and Wonderful set, which I punched out with SU's curly label punch. The ribbon is by Joann's, buttons from the Autumn Button Assortment, and the card base is Chocolate Kiss.

  6. It always amazes me that one set can look so different stamped by different people!!! I love how you've stamped onto your dp and popped up the stag. Adding stitching and your choice of ribbon with buttons is spot on too.
    Enjoy your Christmas Nina!
