Silver Foil Dashing Deer | Tracy Marie Lewis |

I finally finished the last of the Dashing Deer I had left to work with. Each is unique so I will list them all here. I created the final four as masculine cards. So there will be minimal embellishments on all of them.

The first is one of my favorites. The sentiment is from Wishing You Well. It was cut out using a smaller label die from Stitched All Around and the cardstock is Sahara...

Happy Holidays Dashing Deer Card Front | Tracy Marie Lewis |

This card is unique so I will present it solo. I intended to move on to another theme of card fronts however, while prepping materials I found five more dashing deer cuts hiding in my stash. I've kitted these up and will finish and present them next.

Copper On Copper Dashing Deer | Tracy Marie Lewis |

It is time to talk about the copper foil leaping deer fronts. I made three of these. The first is copper on copper. As part of creating a set of materials to work with I die cut copper, silver and white snowflakes, leaving the negative sheet available to be used as a background. I chose the copper background and layered vellum with the large Stitched All Around label under the copper deer. I...

Dashing Deer With Snow | Tracy Marie Lewis |

This next set of fronts uses the filigree pattern deer stamp.  I stamped these in two colors: Merry Merlot and Soft Suede. The first card started out as masculine and I was not going to add any embellishments but I determined that the stamp's pattern makes it more feminine. I die cut a bunch of white snowflakes from the Beautiful Blizzard set and used a few here with the metallic sequins....

Card Front One | Tracy Marie Lewis |

After traveling over four thousand miles from Washington state to Florida for OnStage, I now MUST get my swaps done. I am not a good repetition crafter, I pretty much fail in that department. So, in order to keep this fun for me I am going to blog all of my projects I make to swap. I will be making card fronts, so their final size will be about 4" x 5 1/4" so all that is left is to adhere them...

Today I am hopping with the Kre8tors blog hop group. We were challenged to use at least three of the listed colors as well as be inspired by the provided image.

Included below is a short video illustrating how I...

October 2018 Stamp 'N Hop | Tracy Marie Lewis |

Welcome to the October Stamp 'N Hop blog hop. This month we are getting a jump start on Christmas cards. I just finished a two week long trek from Washington state down to Florida so it is hard to think about Christmas with all of this warm weather. We did have to shorten our schedule and skip driving through Georgia due to hurricane Michael. Instead we high tailed it down to Orlando to miss...
