Welcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop! We have created wintry projects to share with you today – snow, sleds and mittens are sure to be found in our lineup. We are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My Winter card is a young deer enjoying the snow and trees.  It is the Best Time of Year!  I went back to the Annual Catalog for this project.


Stampin' Up!, Peaceful Deer, Painted Christmas, Essentials Twine, Festive Pearls, Jackie Beers



Today’s card is another one stamp set card.  All of the stamped images are from the Peaceful Deer stamp set.  And since it is in the Annual Catalog, it is not going away until at least May!  I do love this set.  There are so many ways to use these trees and different deer.  I focused on the special deer with the sweet saying.  And the sentiment layer goes along with that one.

The colors used are Soft Suede for the deer.  Evening Evergreen was used on the all of the trees.  And Pool Party for the snow flakes and at the deer’s feet.  The sentiment is stamped also in Evening Evergreen.


I was searching for a complimentary paper to the scene I was creating when I found not one but two pieces.  Actually they are the front and back of the same piece.  That is a winner / winner!!  Of course the papers had the Soft Suede of the deer, but they also directed me to the Evening Evergreen for the trees.  Soft Suede is not one I use very often.  However I am really loving how it brings out the pine cones.


Between all of the trees and the busy papers the card has a lot going on.  I still needed some bling and to settle the scene.  So out came the Festive Pearls in the soft green.  It seems similar to the light in the pine cone paper as well as matching the Pool Party snow.  Those are scattered around the scene.  But I also added a darker twine from the Essentials Bakers Twine Combo Pack.  Twine works wonderfully with more rustic colors.
