Good Monday morning! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was filled with an amazing 2016 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog stamping event on Saturday. Woohoo! AND Sunday was just relaxing, watching a little of this and a little of that. [grin] Today’s design was one of the three I designed for our event on Saturday. It features the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set, Cookie Cutter Builder punch and Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper.
This cutie was designed out of necessity. I started with another design I found on Pinterest, then when our great SU Designer Series Paper Sale started on October 1st the paper I was going to use went on back order. [I needed A LOT of sheets] Yikes! So, I put my designer hat on and created this adorable “Special Delivery” (from the Tin of Tags stamp set) Trio of Reindeer. I’d love to hear your comment if they make you smile too.
BASE: The base is Crumb Cake layered with Real Red and Whisper White. The presents are from Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. [TIP: Leave the top of the Diagonal present unglued so you can tuck the two Reindeer behind.] Then top the center present with 1/4″ strips of Real Red and pop with Dimensionals.
REINDEER TRIO: These adorable guys (from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set) were stamped onto Crumb Cake with Memento Black ink. Then punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. Color the antlers and inner ears with Soft Suede ink. Then tuck two of the Reindeer behind the shorter present box. The third Reindeer is popped with Dimensionals in the center with the nose slightly over the present. I highlighted “Rudolph’s” nose with a 1/2″ Red Glimmer circle with the top portion trimmed away. HELLO……it was the obvious place to add sparkle. [grin]
SENTIMENT: Stamp “Special Delivery” from Tin of Tags stamp set in Memento Ink onto a Whisper White strip. Trim the ends into a “vee”. To create the undulating banner stack two Dimensionals into the center and glue dots on either end.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a great Monday. Until next time…..happy stamping!
