Beauty of the Season and Ornamental Pine

Good afternoon!  Well I had a post for you yesterday...but for some reason...I did not publish it...so TODAY...I have two cards for you! 

My youngest daughter, Kathryn, is in girl scouts and is selling nuts and candy right now.  One of the caramel candies comes in a tin...which is my inspiration for these two cards.  You can find inspiration ANYWHERE!

Here is my inspiration and my first card!  This card was made with the Hardwood stamp set, Ornamental Pines stamp set and the Beauty of the Season stamp set.  The colors are Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Real Red and Mossy Meadow.  I LOVE how it turned out!

Here is my second card....I really wanted to make a birdhouse...because the tin is a birdhouse.  It was simple to make.  After stamping my Basic Gray in VersaMark with the Hardwood stamp, I used the circle from the middle of a stamp in the Chalk Talk stamp set....(yes....I save those pieces of stamps that normally get thrown away)...to make the opening to the birdhouse by stamping several times in VersaMark.  The bird...OF COURSE....is the Bird Builder punch....the one I thought I would NEVER USE!  I colored my Basic Pearls with my Cherry Cobbler Blendabilitie and added some Dazzling Diamonds paper to make the roof look like it had snow on it.  I used the Ornamental Pine stamp set...isn't it BEAUITIFUL! 

My lesson of the day is...look around...there is LOTS of INSPIRATION out there!

Thanks for stopping by and
