At the Marsh!

It's a rainy, grey day and kind of chilly after our 90 degree day yesterday.  Perfect for being inside creating.  I am sharing 2 cards I created.

I recently invested in a magnetic plate for my Sizzix Big Shot.  Why didn't I get this sooner with all the die cutting I do!  If you don't have one I highly recommend getting one.  

The first card is for the Impression Obsession challenge - Summer Fun.  I have some of their dies and thought I would try and put one together,  They want you to use all their products and the second card uses some other dies.  

Sunrise at the Marsh
Using dies 187-L shorebirds, 087-P cattails, 060-I Grass border, 178-C small grass border
The scallop border frame is a Pretty Pink Posh die
I blended Tim Holtz distress inks to get my background- Mustard yellow, Spiced marmelade and Worn lipstick
The dragon flies I gut of vellum and sprayed them with Colorshine in Mint Green and gold 
No greeting as yet , because then I can use it for whatever.

My second card is of moose in the marsh.
Today I have pulled out vellum, which I haven't used in a very long time, but seemed perfect for the mountains- which were cut with a Mama Elephant die Snow capped mountains
Moose die- Marianne design
I also put copper stickles on top of the cattails

Hope you got to be creative today.

Oh my gosh, these are both absolutely stunning!! I love the colors and the scenes you've created on each one!! Wow!! They are both so gorgeous!! I have a magnetic plate for my Sizzix but I used it so much, there are only certain places where the magnets work anymore. Guess it's time to get a new one :) Have a great weekend!! Big hugs :)

Great cards, Leslee! I like the background of your first card (fabulous colours!) and really love the mountains and sparkly cattails in your second.
