Welcome to my first Rudolph Day of 2015 and this year sees the challenge move over the pond to ScrappyMo's blog HERE while Stamping for Pleasure goes to the Elves Rest Home for a little while!
This month seems to have flown by and I had not had chance to sit down and make cards for Rudolph Day until yesterday. So here they are...
I took a Snippet of cream card and stamped it with the Artistic Outpost Reindeer and my new favourite Archival ink - Wendy Vecchi's Potting Soil before cutting it with my NBUS Creative Expressions bauble die. Once cut I inked around the edge with Brushed Cord DI and then decided to stamp some of the greenery from TH Christmas stamp set in Gathered Twigs DI. I inked up a white, yes white, piece of card which was in my Snippets drawer with Brushed Cord, Frayed Burlap and GT DIs. Once it was dry I stamped the TH stamp with PS and embossed it with clear embossing powder.
I then set about inking the card itself with the same colours, though more GT I think. I stamped the same greenery stamp too. I wanted to cut the bauble top out and spotted a Dunkin Doughnuts coffee wrap sitting in my box and thought this the perfect medium to use. I then strung it and needed a flash of colour and spotted a small Snippet of ribbon in the ribbon basket. I then set to layer the card together and needed a little more colour along the bottom (they are closer IRL) so used some washi tape.
I decided to make a second, though I used different elements such as a buff colour Snippet for the Spellbinders bauble, adding a bauble top too, and different washi tape.
I hope you like my cards. I am off now to link it to the RD challenge as well as take them down the Snippets Playground as they contain Snippets. I did actually make a third card but I will share that another time as I could not photograph that one.
Have a great week everyone and thanks for calling by.
