Dasher the Reindeer

Morning's Friday again.....boy it comes around fast.  This weekend however, I am staying at home.  What a novelty. :-)  Planning on doing lots of gardening as the weeds are growing really well at the moment.  Plants need a good watering too.

On to my cards.  I used my new Stampin Up Dasher stamp again.....he is so much fun.  Both of these cards started with a white gloss BE card.  Then a layer of this fantastic Allison Ellis design paper.  It is so silvery and shiny and I just love holly leaves for Christmas.  I cut out a scalloped edge circle with my Spellbinders in navy blue card.  Stamped Dasher on to white card and then punched the majority of him out with a circle punch.  When I use a stamp I use the entire image.....never think to use only part.  My friend had told me she had seen this on the net somewhere so I had to have a try.  I really like how Dasher looks in the circle.  I then added shimmer paint.  To the top Dasher a red nose and tadah you have Rudolf....finished with a red bow.  The second card, I added leftover sticker circles to the edge of the scallop.  Stamped the lovely Stampin Up greeting and rounded two corners to make it look like a tab.

Wishing you all a happy and fun filled weekend.  
Catch up with you on Monday.
