I have seen some fantastic designs lately where a designer (Mayuri) uses lots of bright Distress Inks to form a picture, and I took inspiration from this for this first card. You can see the original version here - http://candlesinthegarden.wordpress.com/2014/10/29/ww-october-release-day-2/.
I had a similar stamp from a Penny Black set called Prancers which features fir trees and stylised deer.
I used bright Distress Inks to create the background then over stamped in black ink at the front. I cut a curve and edged with Glamour Dust before attaching it with foam pads and adding the Memory Box Die 'Leaping Deer' cut in gold card.
Here's a card and tag using the same set of stamps with the trees done in white embossing powder on kraft card ...............
