A Church in the Meadow

Hello Dies R Us Friends!
Today I, Darlene,  have a 'wintery' scene as my inspiration sample for you!

It all started while I was playing around with the Ken Oliver Color Burst (boy those are addicting) to make some background panels and I wanted to do something a little different so I just started going through my die cuts and this is what I came up with.  Actually ... I'm REALLY happy with the outcome.


The dies I have used on this creation are as follows:
Memory Box Addington Distressed dies #30059

I must tell you at the time of this posting this particular distressed corner die is Out of Stock but there are a few others that would work perfectly well .. in fact, might have even been better!
i.e. Memory Box Distressed Snow Drift Collage  or  Memory Box Distressed Holiday Collage

Impression Obsession 'Small Deer' #DIE117 
(ssshhh ... I cut the antlers off the two lower deer and made them doe... lol)
 Sue Wilson 'Festive Collection - Winter Trees'  #CED3041
Frantic Stamper 'Village Church'  #FRA-DIE 09540


 I'm sorry that some of these dies are currently out of stock ... boy they sure fly off the shelves!
But if you use the 'Search' feature at the store and type in TREES or whatever it is you're looking for, there will a variety of company dies pop up and I'm sure you'll find what you are looking for.

I know I've added more photos than I normally do but I wanted you to get the full affect of how beautiful this card turned out.  You can click on the smaller images to enlarge them to full size to see the detail better.
 On the church ... I didn't want the white/blue background showing through the windows/door so I simply laid my die cut church onto a scrap of orange/yellow card stock ... traced around then cut on the INSIDE of my lines.  A thin bead of white glue and I'm much happier with how it looks popped up on the 'snow'.  Of course I just had to add a touch of Diamond Stickles sparkle to the snowflake corner treatment as well as the left side of my trees.
I hope you've drawn some inspiration from today's project and try your hand at a 'wintery scene'.  While you're creating, why not come check out the challenge going on at our Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  YOU could be our next winner of a DRU Store gift voucher.

Till next time!
