Very Dashing

October 26, 2010

I don’t know why I waited so long to buy the single stamp Dasher.  I have seen so many gorgoues things done with it and it is such a cute little stamp.

When I saw the sketch challenge on the Technostamper website, I thought I just had to ink this stamp (Thanks Mary Jo such a great sketch).  I started with Cherry Cobbler card as my base (just love this colour).  I inked the antlers of the Dasher stamp only using Cherry Cobbler ink and stamped it across the top of the Cherry Cobbler card to add some interest.  Next I add a piece of Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper after sponging the edges with some Cherry Cobbler ink.  Next I added a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock which I ran through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  I added a small Basic Rhinestone in the centre of the motif on the right hand side.  I stamped Dasher onto an oval of Very Vanilla card and layered it onto a piece of Old Olive card.  This was added over the Very Vanilla card using dimensionals.  I added a small Basic Rhinestone for his eye.  Lastly I stamped “Merry Christmas” using the greeting from Contempo Christmas using Cherry Cobbler ink and my stamp-a-ma-jig.  I actually stamped the greeting 3 times to give it depth of colour – only possible when you use the stamp-a-ma-jig to position correctly.

I am quite happy with the way this card turned out.  What do you think?

Bye for now, Kris.
