Monday Mashup #11 featuring Rustic Retreat....


Good morning, I hope you have had a good weekend.

We painted our garden shed, walked the dogs in the forest and generally had a relaxing one.

Today I am sharing with you two cards using the beautiful Rustic Retreat stamp set.

I was originally drawn to this stamp set because of the A A Milne quote and the Christmas sentiment but then I realised what a versatile set it is for birthdays and Christmas and lots of other occasions.  Sadly, I think it is little bit overlooked but then we have so many amazing sets I guess it is inevitable some will be more popular than others.

I actually have two cards to share with you, they are made in exactly the same way but I have used different stamps.  Here is the first one using the little house in the forest.

The centre has been cut out and raised on dimensionals and a bauble topper added.

I started by creating the background before cutting out the circle.

For this week's video, I recreated this card using the little deer and a different colour palette.

These are really fun to make and you could add any image or scene on to the bauble or for a birthday you could just leave the bauble top off with perhaps a subtle dot, leaf or floral Ombre background.

Here is the video so you can see it being made.

I hope you like my projects today.  You can purchase the products I have used by clicking on the links below.  Don't forget to add this month's Hostess Code to receive a small gift from me.

Happy Craftin'
