Hi, all MLS fans. Carol here with 2 cards and 1 project using the adorable "Oh, Deer!" collection. I love the woodsy feel of this collection and the oh so adorable deer and mushroom!!! When I saw this collection, lot of ideas just flow into my mind!!!
"My Deer Friend" Postcard Card
I cut out the respective papers, inked and layered them with foam strips. I made it to be like a postcard using my postal stamps. Again popped up the journaling tag with foam strips and adhered the alpha stickers for the title. I made this for a dear friend of mine.
I love the Deer and the Tree "Stamps".
Supplies: White cardstock (Bazzill); MLS papers: A Walk In The Woods, Creekside Trail, Happy Campers, Cardstock Sticker, Mini Alpha Sticker (Apple); Postal Stamps (Purple Onion); Distress inks; Foam tape (Scrapbook Adhesives)
"I Wood Like To Say..." Card
Besides the deer, I love the cute mushrooms and this "woodgrain" paper!! So I made a "tree trunk" card with it. I layered and popped up the leaves and acorn stickers at the top.
For this card, I also embellished the inside of the card with the journaling tag and stickers.

"Oh, Deer! My Mushroom Dollhouse!"
The first moment I lay my eyes on this paper collection, a mushroom dollhouse idea for my girl just pop into my mind. I went to a local craft store and grabbed some basswood and the foam semi dome. I sawed the wood using a small manual saw and pasted the papers with multi-medium. Then I sanded the edges and glued them together with wood glue before nailing them. I painted the foam dome and adhered punched circles to make the mushroom head. I made the "clothline" with the banner diecuts and MLS green ribbon. It was a tiring job to saw and sand the wood. My arms were sore after this but I'm very happy with the result. So is my girl. She always wanted me to make a dollhouse for her.
Here's some detailed close ups:
I used the journaling tags as the "carpets". I didn't glue these down as I would want to update and change the "carpets" whenever I want. I made the 2 deers with the stickers glued unto chipboard and made the "leg" for them to stand. So they are the dollhouse owners!! The furnitures are from my and my girl's toy collection.
For both sides of the dollhouse, I adhered the tree and mushroom stickers and sealed them in with multi-medium.
Here's the 2 owners of the dollhouse. Love them!!!
I made this table with a round wood and some wooden spools. Adhered the table top with paper and sanded them down. I made "bowls" out of the leaf die-cuts and also glued the acorn stickers unto chipboard (to make it more dimensional) to make the "food".
I made a simple flower garden corner with the flower die-cuts and mushroom stickers. The lamp post was made using Sizzix die.
