often lose track what day of the week it is, but I'm totally lost having
hubby at home everyday!
No, I'm not complaining, it's lovely having him
around, it just feels like one very long weekend! ☺
He's back to work
next week, he's just enjoying some very well earned rest!
used the Hostess Merry Patterns Stamp Set, which is a two-step stamp
set, to make today's card.
This stamp set is given free with all orders
over €350/£250 during September and October.
started with a card base of Crumb Cake Cardstock (CS), then a layer of Real
Red CS and a top layer of Whisper White CS.
After I stamped the reindeer
outline stamp using Basic Black Archival Ink on the top layer, I stamped the infill stamp using Crumb Cake Ink.
I don't like the reindeer
not having eyes or a nose, so I added some using a Crumb Cake Marker
Unfortunately, I made a real hash of it!
So I went back to the
drawing board, and repeated the process on a scrap of Whisper White CS.
I added the eyes and nose very lightly - they are hardly visible, but
they are there!
stamped the outline sentiment stamp towards the bottom of the top
layer, using Basic Black Archival Ink.
Using Real Red Ink, I stamped the
infill stamp, and was successful in getting it lined up correctly!
love photopolymer stamps!
Using a straight cut Layering Square
Framelits Die, I die cut the reindeer, and then used a larger scaolloped
die from the same set to die cut a Crumb Cake layer to adhere the reindeer on.
I adhered this on top
of the original reindeer, and decided I'd made a happy
mistake with the original eyes and nose.
The reindeer looks so much better with the layers, and having the layering adds so much to the
I adhered all the layers together using Tombow.
the inside of the card I had a layer of Real Red CS and a top layer of
Whisper White CS.
Before I adhered them in, I took the top layer, and
stamped the outline head and shoulders of the reindeer in the bottom
right hand corner, using Basic Black Archival Ink.
Then I stamped the infill stamp using Crumb Cake Ink.
I completed the card by adhering the two layers inside.
If you missed the first card I made using this stamp set, you can check it out on my blog on 9th September 2017.
That's it from me today, until tomorrow, happy crafting.
