On Dasher, on Dancer, etc.


Merry Monday everyone! Yes, time for another Merry Monday challenge - this week, Colleen asks us to use a reindeer on our Christmas card. I have several stamp sets with reindeer but I went for one I just received before the holidays from My Favorite Things. I couldn't resist the sweet Santa in the set but there's also a trio of darling reindeer - perfect for this challenge!

Reindeer trio
Supplies: Stamps - My Favorite Things Merry Everything CS-151Inkadinkado Rudolph 60-31358
Hero Arts Polar Set by Lia DC165 & Blizzard Bold Prints CG697
Dies - Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes (rectangle); Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders
MFT matching dies to Merry Everything
Inks - Distress Inks Tumbled Glass, Lucky Clover, Pine Needles; Memento Rich Cocoa
Paper - Neenah Solar White and Hero Arts Punch; Other - Copic Markers, foam tape

I'm not happy with all the shading on my reindeer - oh well... I used the heavier weight Neenah - don't know if that made the difference. Anyway, I started by stamping, die-cutting, and coloring the reindeer. Then I decided to make a scene backed with the blizzard and stitched hill. I stamped and fussy cut the seven trees from the Rudolph set - that way I could place them wherever I wanted. Fun card to make but it took several hours with all the stamping, coloring and cutting.

Well, I'd better cut this post short since I have some music to practice for chorus. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all the lovely creations at Merry Monday. The Design Team outdid themselves with their reindeer goodness!
