Playing with new dies . . .

Happy Weekend All!
 The other day I received an order from the Dies R Us store and couldn't wait to play with my new 'schtuff'! LOL   A couple of things on my order where new winter time dies from Memory Box and here are a couple of cards I've created using them.

The two dies I'm referring to are Memory Box - Evergreen Sky Collage

and Memory Box - Lamplight Tree Collage

On the first card I created a background using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks on water color paper and spritzed with water.  The lamppost panels were taped on the back while still in the die and colored with a marker while still in the die.

For my second card I've used BOTH die cuts and stacked them together using dimensional tape.  I've added an extra Martha Stewart icicle punched panel and Diamond Stickles for the sparkle.   The cute little deer in the background is Poppystamps 'Cute Fawn'.

OH and I also used another new item.   Altenew - Dotted Scales Debossing Cover as my background.
