DIY: Style Study: The Stag Stationery Trend

December 12, 2013

The Stag Stationery Trend | Damask Love BlogI can’t be sure of the exact moment when deer became trendy, but it ‘s happening. I’ve been trying to figure out where I can put this, but in the meantime I thought is would be fun to take a look at all the awesome crafting supplies that will let you put this trend on paper. Today’s post is one that I’ve been working on for some time. It’s a round-up of my favorite “deer” themed products…and of course I have plenty of projects to show you these goodies in action. Let’s go ahead and get this started…because I’ve got a lot to share

The woodgrain paper is perfectly paired with buffalo gingham and a few pine sprigs. I heat embossed the image with white embossing powder and it worked out perfectly!

By masking the center portion of the card, I was able to add fair isle to fill in the rest of the otherwise plain, white cardbase.

By using the Delicata metallic gold stamp pad, I got all the sparkle without any of the fuss of heat embossing or glitter. The detailed stag stamp is so very elegant, it can easily stand on it’s own with much else in the design.

The Stag Stationery Trend | Damask Love BlogI’ve shared a lot of holiday and winter themed projects but you can certainly use your deer themed supplies to create a year-round design like this pretty pretty floral design. The florals from WPlus9’s newest stamp set: More Fresh Cut Florals is perfect when arranged around a banner image like this one. A bit of dimensional shading with markers adds a little more sophistication to the design.
