Walk Through the Woods Curio ~ DRU

Hello friends~  Sorry for two posts on the same day.  That doesn't happen very often, but this month, it's happened twice due to two design team schedules that are overlapping.  Anyway, if you're looking for Double D's post, look HERE.  If you're looking for Dies R Us, then you're in the right place.

There's a new challenge starting up over at Dies R Us and the theme is "Dads / Masculine".    

I've been seeing a lot of these curio style cards on the internet lately and I realized that I have plenty of dies from Dies R Us, that will help me achieve the same look, starting with the Lawn Fawn Peekaboo Backdrop, cut out of brown textured cardstock. 

I randomly stamped a piece of printed paper in soft inks to finish the background.  I then added an Impression Obsession Feather, that I inked using DOX ink, splattered with water and heat embossed the edges in gold. 

The berry twig is from Cheery Lynn Designs Floral Bouquet Kit, a Dee's Distinctively Fower 3, and an Elizabeth Craft Designs Small Butterfly, which was also cut from printed scrapbook paper.

Here are the links I used to make today's project, found at Dies R Us:

While I had my supplies out, I ended up making one card for each season.  The card above is for SPRING.

Here is SUMMER:



Please hop on over to the Dies R Us Challenge blog to see more of my amazingly talented teammates projects and then join in on the fun!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a lovely set of cards. I wouldn't know which season to pick as my favourite, they're all gorgeous. I need to give this type of card design a try. Lovely inspiration, Birgit!

Oh wow all of these are just outstanding, I love the thicker dies for the sections, the one I have is very thin. These dies are awesome to fill the areas. I do love the look of the gold embossing on the feather, like the soft stamping for the backgrounds. Each season looks terrific but your winter one I think is my favorite!!
