Mini and 5th set for MFP a HC November Blog Hop

Happy Monday!  This is going to be a fun week full of inspiration!  It's blog hop week at MFP a Heinrich Co.   Today we are featuring the mini stamp set and the 5th set for the month of November.
Come on back tomorrow and the rest of the week for loads of inspiration and a chance to win a stamp set!!!!

Today I am going to share two cards.  The first is using the mini stamp set: "Oh Deer!"

I kept this fairly simple because this card will probably go to my husband and he likes my cards when they are simple!   I stamped and cut out the deer so I could pop him up.  One of my favorite techniques is to glue down the bottom portion of the image (in this case the legs) then pop up the upper portion with foam squares.  The design of this deer is perfect for cutting out and even adding more dimension by gently curling the antlers forward.  I didn't show this card to my husband but I  have shelf in here where I display my cards for a few days after creating them.  My husband came in to chat with me and saw it and said, "Now this one, I like!"  

 My second card uses the stamp set "Winter Scenes".

 This gorgeous stamp set features two large stamps, three snowflakes and several gorgeous sentiments!  I chose to work with the ornament stamp for this card.  I stamped the image on gold card stock, colored in the snowflakes and trees then added glitter to the inner circle.  The lace oval behind the sentiment is actually a circle that I cut apart and put back together to form the oval.

Here is a closer look at the glittery ornament!

Thanks for looking!  Have a great week!
