Guest DT Spot

Hello Bloggers

Ive been so excited waiting to do this post :)

The fab Treasured Times Stamps are running lots of different monthly comps on their Face Book group and I was lucky enough to be voted to be Guest Designer for November
If getting a Guest DT spot for the company wast enough I got to choose which one of their rubber stamps I wanted as my prize. That's where it got a bit tricky, all their stamps are gorgeous, but I picked 'Reindeer Friendship' by the amazingly talented Mi Ran Jung. I loved this stamp the minute I saw it and couldn't wait to get started on my project

Isn't this just the sweetest image ever
I coloured the image with Pro Markers and added glossy accents to the snowfall, reindeer's nose and their eyes to make them sparkle a little. I used Centura Pearl with a hint of Silver card from Crafters Companion to layer everything onto. The brown snowflake paper if from Marianne Design Arctic Winter pad and the blue snowflake one if from the Marianne Design Wintertime paper pad which I brought from Cuddly Buddly. The other beautiful paper is a 12x12 double sided Maja Design paper called '10th of December' and available at Live & Love Crafts which is also where I got the fabulous bark heart and the frantage I covered the white tree in (frantage is my new fave thing). The wooden snowflakes and paper reindeer were from my stash and I heat embossed them with clear cosmic shimmer powder. I used some die cuts from my stash to add some swirls and another of my new toys, the Embellishment Attic Bow Maker, to make the white organza double bow with a pearl buckle. The final touch was a string of white pearls along the bottom of the image.

I am so please with this project and even more please that Jody from Treasured Times Stamps likes it. I will definitely be making more cards using this sweet stamp

Happy Crafting
