Stampin'Up! Remembering Christmas!

Hello! I'm back with a couple of swaps I've received using the Holiday Catalog set, Remembering Christmas!

When I first saw this set in the catalog, I thought, "I don't need this set! That's at least ONE set I won't buy!"

Well, I was WRONG!

First, here's what you might consider the "traditional" use of the deer head in this set:

The deer has been stamped on Night of Navy with Whisper White Craft ink( just found out she used the Illuminate Glimmer Pad. There are no recipes on our swap cards so sometimes I just have to guess), then cut out with one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits. A Smokey Slate Apothecary Accents Framelit was cut in half and layered behind it. Merry Christmas from More Merry Messages (on the Carryover List) was stamped on a strip of Winter Frost Designer Specialty Paper, then snipped on one end to create the banner look. A tiny snippet of Silver 1/8" Ribbon was tied on the other end for a little sparkle. The Whisper White layer was embossed with the Stylish Striped Textured Impressions Folder to complete the classic look.

It was a nice card, but still not enough to make me buy this set. My husband doesn't hunt, but one of my SIL's is an avid hunter. Imagine my surprise when I opened my swap envelope last month and found this:

This swap was created by Meg Wheeler. She used the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Folder for her card base. She inked the negative side of the folder with Basic Black ink before running through the Big Shot. Meg used one of the Clear-Mount Perfectly Placed Guides on her copier to print the "bulls-eye" and grid on the Very Vanilla cardstock. She stamped the deer head and the bullet-hole-resembling splotches from Gorgeous Grunge in Jet Black StazOn before adding "Greetings of the Season" from the Greetings of the Season stamp set to a Window Sheet.The adhesive to hold the window sheet on the card are Glue Dots and are located on the splotches in order to camoflage them.

To tell you how neat this card is, when I showed it to my husband, even HE was impressed, and I think "greetings of the season" is a great play on words for hunting season, yes?

This second card would make a perfect card for any reason for the hunter in your life!

Well, I'd better get going! Lots to do today!
