Rudolph Day - March 17

Hello there,

Well, after starting off the year with very good intentions, I didn't manage to get my post ready in time for last month's Rudolph days challenge, so I'm adding two this month to make up for it and I hope that Scrappy Mo will forgive me :)

Here's my first card which made when I was having a play with a new stamp from Inkylicious, Snowy Pines.  I had intended to use just the trees but I got a little carried away and I ended up  some other stamps, all by Inkylicious. The ink used on this card for dusting and stamping is Adirondack Denim.

Here's Card No 2

This one is a very similar to one that I made for a sample on Hochanda.  Since putting it on Pinterest last Summer, it's had over two thousand pins, so I think people must like it.  I made this one using Adirondack Cranberry ink, which seemed quite appropriate as it was for a Christmas card.  I used an embossing folder which came free with a magazine and after dusting over it with the Cranberry, I then skimmed over the top with some silver Metallic Gilding Wax.

That's all for now, so I wish you a happy day.

Oh these are just so perfect! The scenes are your trademark Sandra and no one does them like you do - everything in it's place and everything perfect and delicate. My personal favourite is the first blue one, I am drawn to the beautiful couple standing there amongst it all, a romantic couple in a romantic setting - well done Sandra!

Flo Langley said...

They are both stunning. Always a treat to see your creations Sandra.

I can see why you have had so many pins for these cards!
They are both beautiful but the first one has caught my eye I finally have a few landscape stamps and want to try creating a scene. I will be using you for inspiration. I just pinned both of your cards!

Thank you for taking part in the March Rudolph Days Challenge.

Better late than never as they say Sandra, I did try to comment from my tablet over the weekend but I just can't be doing with the small keyboard so had to wait until we were home.

Both your cards are lovely, but it's that gorgeous scene in the monotone colours that really jumps out at me and the little romantic hint with the couple by the trees, quite magical.

Many thanks for joining in with our 'Close to Nature' theme at Stamping Sensations challenge.

I am always amazed how you can get so much depth of colour using just the one colour of ink. I might add that I shouldn't be amazed as you always produce the most amazing cards x Fabulous with all those well deserved x
