Would you like to be a difference maker?  Well, you sure can.  Today’s card was created using the absolutely beautiful Nature’s Beauty Stamp Set.  Stampin’UP! is working to make a difference buy donating $3 of the purchase price of every Nature’s Beauty Stamp Set towards Mental Health Issues.  I think this is an awesome program.  The stamp set itself is so serene and just speaks to me.  Today, I chose to spotlight the deer in the stamp set.  I started off with Whisper White Thick Cardstock for my card base.  I then added a layer of Balmy Blue Cardstock to make my next layer of Whisper White that I had embossed with the Woodland Embossing Folder pop.  I also sponged Balmy Blue Ink very lightly over the embossed areas for more definition.

Nature's Beauty Deer and Woodlands Card

My deer was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with my Crumb Cake Combo Stampin’ Blends.  I added just a bit of the Balmy Blue Light Stampin’ Blends around his feet as well.  Do you see the snow?  OHHHH MY GOSHHHH, yep it’s the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint and it’s in the Holiday Catalog.  I sure hope you like it because I promise you’re going to see it on a lot of upcoming creations.  The deer was cut from the 3rd from the smallest Stitched Rectangle Dies and then I used it again in conjunction with the next larger size to create the frame from Balmy Blue Cardstock.  I chose the adhesive strips to pop the frame up as I really wanted it to spotlight how beautiful the deer truly is.  I chose to make this a sympathy card by using the Sending Prayers sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings Set and flagged my ends with the Triple Banner Punch.  With that being said, this card would be perfect for any occasion, just change the sentiment and your good to go.

I wanted to provide you with a close up of the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint.  It’s my first time playing with it and wow.  Squeeze a line of the Puff Paint on your project, grab your Heat Tool and heat it up and watch the magic happen.  Such a fun element and perfect for all types of winter cards.
