Sweet Stampin' - Anything Goes

Good morning to you all.

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and had great fun with family and friends. My daughter managed to make it home for Christmas Day - thanks to my hubbie driving all the way to London and back to collect her. The only sad thing is that we had to drive her back again on Boxing Day due to work commitments. But we got to spend some quality time with her, which is the most important thing.

Anyway back to business! It's that time again ---- it's Sweet Stampin' day!!  Our theme this week is 'Anything Goes'. So I thought I would share the Christmas card I made for my hubbie. It's fun and cute - I gave the reindeer a shiny nose and goggley eyes - they're a little wonky so he looks a little merry. Lol!


Here's What I did
I used a 7" x 7" white base card on which I matted some patterned paper and card.  I die cut 4 curved shapes from white card using a border die so that they would look like snowy slopes.  All the edges of the cut pieces were coloured with a blue Copic pen, these were then layered up onto a blue background to create a snowy scene. I stamped the reindeer 3 times, coloured him with Copic pens, cut out the necessary sections and then layered them up. I added the reindeer, coloured in Robin and log to the background. The finished picture was matted onto some Kraft and red card stock and added to the card base. To finish off I added die cut stars to the sky, added gogglely eyes, glossy accent to the reindeer's nose and white pen to the scarf and hat.

Here's everything I used:
Stamp: 'Santa's Reindeer'- By HobbyArt
Paper/Cardstock (CS):  Desert Storm Neenah CS, Red, White & Blue Plain CS, Kraft CS,  First Edition 'Nordic Christmas' Paper Pad
Copics: Reindeer & Robin - E33, E35, E37 / Nose, Scarf, Hat, Leg Warmers, Robin's Breast - R14, R27, R59 / Snow - B0000, B000
Dies: Spellbinder 'Curved Border One', Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes'
Other: Sharpie White Pen, Glossy Accent

Oooh this is fabulous Janine - I'm loving the whole scene type card! And I bet his own eyes were actually a little wonky after he'd done all that driving - but I'm so glad you got to spend a little time with Heather...
