Jingle all the way

Hello lovely people. I have a bit of inspiration for you today (I hope!!).



We are mid way through the Cute Woodland Friends Challenge at

new style blog badge

and I am here to remind you that there is still time to enter in order to win a Pink Gem Designs image!! I used Reindeer Rudy and coloured him with pencils.



I think the papers may be Marianne Designs, I know the Christmas tree certainly is.




I did a bit of heat embossing and then stamping (I love this technique) to create a sort of "seal" effect. First I cut the scalloped circle and heat embossed it using WOW Copper EP and while it was still wet stamped using a sentiment from a Joy set. The gorgeous gingham ribbon came from my stash.








Some challenges

Christmas card challenges #20
The Ribbon Girl - April Any Image Challenge
Penny's papercrafty Challenge #273 - Anything Goes

It would be lovely to have you join in, you can be assured of a warm welcome!!

See you soon xx

Loving this card with your sweet reindeer and beautiful gingham bow, but I must ask about the seal - you heat embossed then stamped while still wet...does this not muck up your stamp and leave a gooey mess? Clearly not cause the seal is perfect, but I think you need to give me more info first before I get in a right state!!!

Hi Sarah,
what a very super card, and such a great design as always.
I love your cute image, and the lovely heat embossed medallion.
Now this is funny as I was looking through some of my older photos of cards, and came across one which I had done a similar thing with a stamp and embossing powder.
I had forgotten about that so I must have a go soon.
Thank you for the reminder yet again.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Another cutie of a design. This fella just looks so content & at peace with himself. Love the design (and coloring is perfection as always). Really loved the 'medallion' at the bottom. Interesting to read it was copper EP, cause I glanced and thought "Yummy chocolate for this guy". Great card & good to hear I'm not the only one struggling with w/color! TFS & have a super week. Hugs
