July 2017 Rudolph Days

Hello there!  Thank you so much for visiting me, I am so grateful!  Its time for the monthly Rudolph Days Challenge - I haven't joined in for a couple of months but have made it this time! Yay!

The super cute reindeer is from Holly Jolly stamp set by Echo Park that I won from the Rudolph Day's challenge last time I joined in, thank you so much Mo!  Its a gorgeous set filled with sweet images - I actually made seven cards using the reindeer, a Christmas tree and Santa and his sleigh but I came to add the photo's and they were all a little blurry except this one, sorry!  They are all pretty much the same though.  The image is stamped in onyx black Versafine - as its a silhouette stamp, I used my Misti so I could stamp it a couple of times to make sure the image was really solid black. The background is watercolour card previously inked with Distress Inks then sprayed with Glimmer Mist (the colours look nicer in real life) - I did two whole A4 sheets and used them for all my cards and still have some over for more. The pretty die cut circle is from The Works and I added dries white glue and glitter for sparkle along with a little gem for his eye.  The Merry Christmas is die cut from the same A4 watercolour inked card using Spellbinders Holiday die set, and the card base was sprayed lightly with Glimmer Mist too. There is a gorgeously cute Santa on the stamp set that I hope to use soon along with some other fab images - I was so lucky to have won the lovely set!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Scrappy Mo's Rudolph Day's Challenge - Anything goes as long as its Christmas.
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Anything goes as long as its Christmas.
Bizzy Becs - Anything Goes.

Brilliant Challenges!

We had a lovely day today - My daughter, son-in-law and our two little granddaughters came to visit!  Its always such fun to see them all.  I hope you had a lovely day too!

Thank you again for visiting me!  Take care.  Christine xxx

So glad to see you were able to make a card with your prize. It is such a pretty card. The reindeer looks as if he is standing on a snowdrift and your background sky is so pretty.

Thanks for taking part in the July Rudolph Days Challenge.
