The Stamp Review Crew: Wonderland Edition

Welcome to another edition of the Stamp Review Crew blog hop!  I am especially excited about this set, Wonderland, because this will be my first Christmas card that I have created this year!  Even though we've had our Christmas tree and lights up since November 1st, I just haven't really been in the mood to make Christmas cards yet. I was still feeling the fall when it came to colors and stamp sets. :)  I just recently purchased Wonderland when it was discounted, and I think it is going to be my new go-to tree stamp set!

We are really hoping to move to the mountains in Tennessee in the future, so I knew Brett would love for me to make a mountain card.  This one took a lot of sponging and blending, but I love it!  I found the sketch at Fusion Card Challenge. Maybe this time I will remember to actually link up to the challenge.  :)

I also wanted to make sure to use the antlers in some way since Brett is an avid hunter. I thought a wreath would be a perfect way to showcase them and it ended up working out exactly as I had pictured in my head, which rarely happens!
I hope you enjoyed my cards!  Make sure to click on the links below to continue on in the hop!

  1. Wow that mountain scene you created is gorgeous! Worth all that sponging and blending! And I love that antler clever!

  2. Clever use of the antlers; a rarely-used stamp has now become a more-frequently used one. That wreath looks so rustic, but pretty.

  3. Just like the mountains in NC &TN. Lovely card. Great use of the antlers.

  6. Love the antler wreath. The antlers in this set have puzzled me from the beginning in why are they in this set that has no animals it. You did a great job them.

  7. I love both these cards. I don't even like the antlers, but I do now. Thank you so much for the wreath idea. I also love your mountain card. I have physical limitations that I try to ignore. But, to make this card would be too much. I've so enjoy looking to see what other stampers are doing. Thank you much for sharing. Happy Holidays to you and yours.
