CCC: Rudolph and friends

Hello there! How are you? I hope you are well! Today is the next Christmas Card Club for me and the theme this time is Rudolph and friends..... I have made 4 cards using deer .... they are all quite different so I will take them one at a time and share the stamp makers and other details with you....


This one is made using Sheena Douglass stamps ...I stamped the deer then masked and stamped another, masked again then stamped the trees...I masked them and masked the moon then inked the sky using distress ink and stencil brushes. Lastly I removed all the masks and coloured the images and added the bow.


This one is made using a stamp set from paperartsy (scrapcosy). I stamped the deer image 4 times then masked and added the colour and tone in tone stamping on either side. Finally I added the colour to the deer.


This one is made using Tim Holtz stamps. I created the background then overstamped the scene.


Finally this one - the distress oxide background was created first then the Indigoblu stamp was added. The sentiment is from the same Tim Holtz set as made the card above.

I hope you have a great day

Big hugs

Rachel xx

  3. These all look wonderful. The T Holt one has such great images and the Sheena one has made up into such a pretty scene.

    Your skills with ink and masking etc show up so well in the others.

    Wonderful cards!

  15. Four fab cards but that second won wins it for me. I love the Reindeer going down the page and I have never thought to ink a tree scene up in red. I Love the look it gives. Hugs to you and the girls. Mrs A.

  16. Oh my goodness, what a fab set of cards. I'm admiring your masking skills, and I'm sorry, but I just can't pick a fav among these 4. Each one has a unique look - with #1 & #3 having more serenity to the scene(IMHO). I loved the drama from the design and deep colors on #2 & #4 equally well. I'm with Mrs. A, would not have thought of using the red for the trees, but it works beautifully with the softer green on the opposite side, to join in the diamond shapes of the buckhead border. Super layouts and creativity! TFS
