Have a couple of brothers-in-law with upcoming birthdays, so I used this beautiful set for the first time.  Love the scenes that can be created with it.

The trees and grass were embossed with a clear embossing powder.  The sponging over the embossing uses the emboss resist technique.  This lets the white card base shine through the ink on the sponged areas while giving it some wonderful texture, too.  I have always loved this look.

This scene on this second card was created by stamping the trees image in a row several times.

Grasses were also added along with some sponging.  The trees have been colored with Copics.

Using the sweet deer image from this same set, a little scene was created for a mom and special little guy born just a few days ago.

The button is an antique button given to me by Sharon Johnson.  Love.

  10. Oh Susan! These cards exemplify why I started stamping 16 years ago, and why I love it still! Beautiful designs, my friend! <3

  11. Beautiful scenes in all three cards! Loving that emboss resist in #1. I haven’t looked at SU sets much lately, but this one would have caught my eye. Makes wonderful masculine cards or for anyone who appreciates the outdoors. Really love the deer image and design for a baby card!

  16. Great cards… love them all!!

    Thanks for sharing your lovely work in Crafty Hazelnut’s Patterned Paper Challenge Hope to see you in our next challenge too, Donna ☺

  17. Susan, I’ve just run across a wedding card you made and posted about in October 2010. Your back ground was an embossing folder you simply called “Roses” and you colored in the roses and leaves on the embossing folder.

    I have been trying for two hours to find this embossing folder – it might be a Cuttlebug one but I’m not having any success. I know this has been six years. . . would you tell me the name so I can try to find it?

    Best wishes for a wonderful holiday,

    Diane
