Time for some more Christmas cards, and who else to brighten up my blog than the adorable Dasher. This little guy is a single stamp from Stampin' Up! and can be adorning your Christmas cards for just $14.95!
For my first Dasher card, I have embossed him in gold and teamed him with the Stampin' Up! Christmas Cocoa DSP (this is only available as part of the Dress Up Christmas promotion in the Welcome Christmas bundle until 30th November).
I love this Sleigh Bells ribbon, which was the free ribbon I chose as part of this promotion. Another Antique brad (I am keeping the economy booming along with these!) and my greeting is from Four Christmas. For the background stamping on the Always Artichoke layer, I have used the French Filigree background stamp. I really like this as it gives some coverage, without being too much. I thought it went nicely with the swirls on Dasher's antlers as well.
My second Dasher card has a multicoloured effect. I coloured the body using my Early Espresso marker and then the antlers using my Versamark pen. Because the dye ink on the body dries so quick, I was able to keep the gold embossing powder just on the antlers.
My colours here are Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso. I have carried that through onto the Tiny Tags, and used Medallion with Whisper White craft ink on my background. The greeting is from Christmas Wishes, and oh look - there's another Antique Brad :).
I hope you like Dasher's visit to my blog. Hope to be back soon. Even though things are a teeny bit crazy here as we are moving house very soon (just around the corner though :)), a girls still got to get a stamp in to save her sanity.
Have a happy week,
