Tarheel Stamper Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Card

Click on photos for larger view.

This is such a fun card.  I saw a Rudolph made with the Stocking builder punch and it was so cute so I wanted to make one with the Sizzix Bigz Holiday Stocking die.  The photo with the pieces I used does not show Rudolph's smile.  To make the smile, I punched a circle out of Chocolate Chip and then positioned the circle punch over the punched out area a little off that to get the smile.  I used the Snowburst embossing folder on Rudolph.   The Signo white gel pen is great for adding highlights to the nose and eye.  The "antlers" are from the Snowflake #2 Bigz Die. The holly leaves were cut from the Stocking Accents die. The jingle bell is available in the Holiday Mini Catalog and is tied on with Cherry Cobbler baker's twine.  Colors used are Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Garden Green.  Hope you enjoy seeing the card and making one too!

Have a great day!

 Another Christmas card I mailed to my Monday Mailers partner.  If you are a NC demo, this is such a great group.  We share business tips, ask questions of each other, and they plan quarterlies.  I have not been able to go to one, but I hear they are a blast.  It is a great group of stampers and I have learned a lot through this Yahoo group!

On to the card.  I used my lonely Lattice Sizzix die on this one.  Colors are Real Red, Garden Green, and Whisper White.  I used the Blossoms Petal Builder punch for the poinsettia and ran it through the Big Shot inside the Northern Flurry embossing folder. The Tasteful Trim XL Garden Green piece was run through the Big Shot with the Holiday Mini's Snowburst Embossing Folder.  The Merry Christmas is from Teeny Tiny Wishes punched out with the Word Window punch and layered on a Real Red piece punched out with the Modern Label punch.  Rhinestones are on the ends of this.  Below is a photo of the pieces I used to make the poinsettia.  It is the smaller petal on the punch.  I glued two layers of 7 petals on the 3/4" circle and then added the small rhinestones on the center of the flower after I ran it through the embossing folder.

Tarheel Stamper - Gold Leaves and Acorns

click on photos for a larger view

Hi Stampin' Friends!  The card is made with the Day of Gratitude clear mount stamp set  One thing I love about the clear mount stamps is I can put three stamps on a single block and stamp at the same time.  I stamped Happy Thanksgiving from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in Chocolate Chip.  Punched that out with the Word Window punch and matted with the Modern Label punched piece.  The color is Chocolate Chip base and Very Vanilla inside.  The embossed areas were stamped in Versamark ink and then heat embossed with gold powder.  I cut a strip of embossed card stock and glued inside. I used Finial Press Impressions folder on the bottom area of the card.  Next I used the Versamark pad on that embossed area and sprinkled with gold embossing powder.  The Stampin' Up! gold embossing powder is very fine and great for detail images and melts quickly. 

This is a Monday Mailer card for my NC Demo Yahoo group so I hope she isn't looking at it since she will get it next week in the mail.  LOL 

Fall is not in the air here. We are in the 80's and I am loving it. I did get a few fall decorations out and have some photos of fall items in the house. 

Hope you have a wonderful fall day,
