Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Today I am sharing with you a sweet simple card that I cased from the holiday catalog using In the Pines with a deer. In the Pines is a great stamp set that a lot of great pine trees and two versatile sayings. The beautiful deer comes from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.
In The Pines
Here you can see the In The Pines bundle. It is a two-step stamp but you can definitely use the stamps on their own as well instead of layering.
Not only are the trees great, do you see the great landscape features? This is wonderful for creating realistic layers for horizons and snow.
Where Did the Deer Come From?
Have you ever noticed that sometimes you see a great element on a card and you have no idea where it came from? The deer on my card (that you will soon see) comes from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley which is on page 7 of the annual catalog. I love that you can now get just the refill kit which includes the paper and all the great stickers and the gold stars. The deer is one of the many stickers in this great kit.
What you can’t see so clearly in the image of the In The Pines Bundle is that one of the tree dies just cuts out this beautiful decorative tree shape as a window in your card. What a nice surprise! I love the soft look of this pool party ribbon in behind the main panel. The colours are soft sea foam, pool party and whisper white. You can see all the supplies in the list at the bottom of this blog post.
If you want to see the card I made earlier this week with In The Pines you can see it here. I have also made a lot of cards with Most Wonderful Time and hopefully they will make it into a pdf tutorial for you soon.

I hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving weekend, the weather in southern Ontario is looking great. By Monday I hope to have information for you on my upcoming Online Christmas Retreat. Stamping together with people all over the country is really fantastic. This event will be a Zoom gathering as it is essential that we can actually see each other and interact. Retreat packages will be mailed to you and that will be included in the price.
Thanks so much for joining me today, I am thankful for YOU! Have a super day.
