Christmas Reindeer

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Well that was a busy weekend. Ally Pally was fab on Saturday and we had a lovely meal with our family on Sunday. My husband has a few days back at work and then he has about a week's leave. I do need his help with some of the wedding makes.

Believe it or not I have been making Christmas cards again I made 12 of these. I have had the design going round my head for ages so I just had to make it.


This is an A6 card and I made them with my husband's work team in mind. I will be decorating the envelopes too. Last year I decorated some envelopes and not others and there were complaints. So that isn't happening this year. Both of the papers I used are from Stampin Up. 


The reindeer is one of the stamps in the Stampin Up Cookie-Cutter Christmas stamp set. He was stamped onto water colour card and coloured with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. I do have the matching punch to cut him out. In the background you can see the Rustic Twig Wreath from Creative Expressions. The scalloped squares were cut with a Spellbinders die. 


The Happy Christmas was cut with the Contemporary  Happy Christmas by Creative Expressions. 





At Ally Pally we sat in the audience and watched Barbara Grey demonstrate live on TV and the same with Julia Watts. Every so often they would turn the camera on the audience I had to keep waking my husband up. We saw John Lockwood demonstrate the new Glitter Kiss products. The last picture is of my stash. I did succumb to two of the Glitter Kiss colours. I will let you know how I get on.  


I think these cards are quite jolly. 


Enjoy your week. 

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie

This is a lovely card Shame I've missed a couple of posts but like you say life dies get in the way sometimes I loved Ally Pally too yesterday I managed to get some lovely bargains I was only going to have a good browse at everyone's work and buy odds and ends (essential items of course) because I begrudge paying p&p on smaller items I do love this card The layout lends itself to lots of topper ideas
