Oh Deer! CTMH Australasian Blog Hop

Morning! It has been a while since I have participated in a CTMH Australasian Blog Hop but I finally got into gear and created something in time.  You may have just been checking out Kara's amazing creations to hop your way here, but if not the hop is a loop so you can start here and work your way around.

This month the paper packet we are featuring is the gorgeous Christmas pack Oh, Deer! which has some gorgeous Christmassy themes and colours, although it definitely can also be used for other occasions (or no occasions!) as well.

I teamed the paper packet up with the Season of Magic stamp to create a set of three gift cards.

Some tips for these ones:
1.  Don't forget the colours that match with each CTMH paper collection are listed on the zip strip of each paper.  Use these to match your cardstocks and inks perfectly with your papers.

2.  When you make a card you like the look of, make multiples. It is quite easy to change the look of the cards by using slightly different colours and different sentiments.

3. To emboss the stamping on the Merry and Bright card, I stamped in regular old ink first, then stamped directly over the top with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  It turned out great.

Here are the individual cards for you to take a closer look.  Which one is your favourite?

The Oh, Deer! suite of papers and embellishments is only available for a couple more weeks, so if it is taking your fancy you need to get in quick.

  1. These are gorgeous! I especially like the third one.

  2. This series is stunning. Really lovely. The embossing titles really adds an element of sophistication to your cards.
