Stag


When I went to a Christmas card making workshop not too long ago, the sentiment stamp which I used here was available for one of the examples... it was also for sale at the end of the session and I simply loved it, so I bought it. I think it's really rather old. It's a wood mounted stamp which says DENAMI Design on the side with the date 1997. As I wanted to make a few cards using this stamp I decided to take it off the mount to use in my MISTI. After a short while in the microwave it came off really easily. I just love the flow of the script. The stag is from a Sizzix die, cut from a gold paper which matches the colour of the embossing powder really well, but it really too thin for using in a raised fashion like this. The answer was to stick it to some regular card before die cutting. I think this stag looks really majestic.
The Christmas Challenge at Happy Little Stampers  this time is Anything Goes with the option of using reindeer.

I must say that doing Christmas cards throughout 2018 was really helpful, especially as we went off for our cruise in mid December, so that's the plan for this year too... starting now!

This comes with all good wishes for the New Year to everyone who visits my blog... and thank you!
