Good morning friends~ It's my turn to post over at the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog and I've got a sweet baby gift to share with you.
I made this little framed deer scene to give to a new mom as part of her baby gift.
I started by cutting lots of different types of greens and flowers using some fabulous dies from Dies R Us. I'll list everything I used at the end of this post just to make it easier, since I cut way more than I needed or used for this project.
I then added color using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and assembled the flower pieces. The Marianne Designs Deer were a special order from Dies R Us. I highly recommend adding your name to their e-mail list so you'll get the first in on special orders and lots and lots of magnificent sales!
I built the base of the scene to fit into a 5"x7" frame, using stitched landscape dies. You can see where I had to add length to the scene to fit it into the frame but that line isn't going to show once I add all the other pieces. The fern dies are from Spellbinder and are no longer available but there are a lot of other fern dies available at Dies R Us.
I played around with different layouts until I found the one that made me happiest and then started adhering the layers on.
I built up the layers and added depth by using foam squares and glue dots that I rolled between my fingers for smaller pieces, like the cattails.
I added some sparkly Stickles to some of the flowers and butterflies for added detail.
I stamped the sentiment from Sweet N' Sassy Stamps "Vintage Baby" onto the space left in the sky. Some cut grass fills the rest of the front.
Here's a list of products I used that can be found at Dies R Us:
