Rudy Reindeer

I've been rummaging through my stamps determined to use some loved but forgotten stash.  Every time I buy something new, it gets used over and over again until it starts to disappear and forgotten about under new purchases which is crazy - so I'm on a mission to right that wrong!

What I found this week was a cheeky little reindeer stamp called Rudy by Pink Gem Designs and knew I had to use him for todays card.



Isn't he cute?  Anyway I coloured him using Inktense after I'd stamped him in black, stamped again with Versamark then heat embossed in clear and fussy cut him out.  I die cut a snowy hill with room to put the sentiment and edged it with some Stickles.  Added a few sequins/gems and a touch of Glossy Accents to his nose.



I recently found my Bazzill In Stitches, again an unloved/old stash item and thought I'd create a simple backdrop for Rudy of very pale blue snowflakes and still keeping it uncluttered... I think he looks super happy :)
