Dasher Forest Swap
Well, by the look of my blog, you may have thought I forgot how to stamp!! But I have been busy with Christmas cards and some swaps. Today, I am showing a card I made for a swap on splitcoaststampers. My cyber-swapping friend, Jeanette, is known to many as Forest Ranger. She is hosting a swap with the theme "Forest Friends." Hmmmm...I don't have many stamps to go with that theme. I thought about Fox & Friends...but then I ran into Dasher sitting in my cabinet. This fun single stamp from Stampin' Up is a great image to have! I used the pine tree from Lovely as a Tree (a must-have set!), stamping off first, so the ink is very faint, keeping Dasher in the forefront. The trees are stamped in always artichoke and garden green, and I lightly sponged garden green and blue on the image. No snow yet apparently! LOL! I knew many people have their Christmas cards done already, but we all need some Christmas thank you's! So I used garden green, real red, and very vanilla card stock, with some retired designer series paper. Chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals, non-SU gold beads, and my punches paired with Teeny Tiny Wishes wrap up the details.
Well, I have a lot of cards still to make! Hopefully I will post more soon!
