...I am having a blast with these little reindeer. Totally unexpected fun from this particular Hero Arts set here . I bought it because my local scrapbooking store was having a "deal" on stamps and the HA snowflake background here were part of a bundled package that was at a good price. So, I scooped them up and wow-not normally the "cutesy" image kind of person but these little guys have been a blast! They are MADE to be paired with "Diamond Stickles"! So, another reindeer card (and just some inside information here....I have another one drying in pieces on my table AND hopefully it will turn out the way I have it pictured in my mind....). I am going to enter this in to the Case Study Challenge #64 (CSC64) but I also have to give "props" first to Elizabeth Allan of Elizabeth Allan's Art Studio Blog. Elizabeth makes the most amazing framed cards and seriously, it/they (but not Elizabeth because she is extraordinarily nice, helpful and the OPPOSITE of intimidating...) intimidate me. They look so complicated but they also look soooo cool. And, so, I saw the CSC64 "framed card" and knew, deep in my soul that TODAY was my day to attempt the framed card. I went to Elizabeth's site and looked at card after framed card and followed her basic directions here. And it was really fun to do! So, thanks Elizabeth, for giving me an afternoon of pure enjoyment....I felt like I was back in elementary school making my folks their Christmas card! I do believe I will also put this in the HA pool/challenge, for obvious reasons...it's HA and blinged and maybe the 2peas site if I can figure it out. And, lastly, (I know, multiple challenges = so UNLIKE me...guess I'm growing and maturing as a person hehehe) I also am going to put it in the Lily Pad Simon Says Stamp Texture challenge because...it's textured. So, here is my card:
Thanks again for slogging through another insanely long post....you should meet me in person = I can yak till my coffee's cold! Take care and enjoy your weekend!
