A Christmas Reindeer

I remember when the CHF team first got to sneak peek this stamp...I automatically added it to my wish list. There is just something about cute reindeer and snowmen of course. Asela certainly outdid herself on her fabulous winter collection...I NEEDED IT ALL! *lol* Speaking of needing it all have you seen Kim Hughes recent release? Or how about Nichole Heady's Papertrey Ink sneak peaks for the November 15th release?
So does your stamp collection look like mine too...ever growing??? *lol*

I made this sweet reindeer card a while ago but like many of my cards and projects I have a priority pile and this one just had to wait its turn. That's what happens when you start designing with purpose. Oh course I have fun all the same it is stamping after all.



recipe
paper: blush red dark (Prism), iced kiwi (Prism), intense kiwi (Prism), suede brown dark (Prism), whisper white (SU!)
ink: Brillance Graphite Black (Tsukineko)
stamp set(s): Christmas Reindeer (Asela's Collection CHF) Christmas is a Time for Love (Asela's

A few days ago Starqueen asked me how I debossed my Silhouette Blooms Sympathy card. I first stamped with white ink and once it was dry I stamped over it with not quite navy ink. You'll notice I didn't stamp exactly over the image...if you stamp slightly "off centre" you get a 3-d look.

Have a wonderful day. Congrats goes out to my friend Jen who had a baby boy last night...haven't you heard 3 kids is the new 2! Yeah...I think 2 is enough for me *smiles*

Because I love to stamp and you do too!

Totally fabulous! I'm still trying to figure out if you made amazing shadows or if you cut all of that out--either way, it WORKS!
