Lumberjack Love {Neat and Tangled}

Hi there!



I am so excited to get this week started. This is my first post as a part of the Neat and Tangled team, and it's a special treat for me that it happens to be the day we're showing off my new set, Lumberjack Love.

The set is perfect for Valentine's day, but the images can be used year-round.

My first card features the lumberjack, in a bit of a diorama scene.  I stamped, colored and cut out the lumberjack, the trees, and sentiments and popped them up against a night sky patterned paper. I grounded the entire scene by stamping the "falling for you" sentiment into the banner from Party Dots.

I colored his hat to look like those really chunky working man socks. You know the ones? I always think real man when I see those. Strong, woodsy, cuts-his-own-trees, lumberjack man. ha.

For my second card, I stamped the bear onto the tree stump and die-cut the 2 images together. I then stamped Danielle's handwritten sentiment (isn't it so lovely?) onto both the bottom of the images, and onto the white mat underneath.

I love how the little bear is playing with his foot (paw?) My kids always sit like this, with one leg tucked underneath. Why not draw a bear that looks as innocent as they do when they don't know mama's watching?

GIVEAWAY: I hope you're falling for Lumberjack Love! I have an extra set to give away to one of you! Leave me a comment on this post, and I'll choose a winner by Friday. For an extra chance to win, visit the Neat and Tangled blog today. Danielle is also spreading the lumberjack love!

All of the stamps and dies for Neat and Tangled's new release will be in the shop by Friday, January 22nd.

Thanks for stopping by!
