Today I'm sharing ideas using a new set called Gleeful Reindeer. This set comes with three darling reindeer images, trees in three sizes, a sled, several companion images like presents and decorations for the trees and five happy sentiments.
Up first is a card that I just was dying to create using the reindeer happily leaping through the sky. I inked up my background with Salty Ocean & Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks and then flicked on some water to help add to the snowy/ starry look. I then added some random dots of sparkle with my favorite Stardust Stickles. My images were colored with Copic Markers and Glossy Accents (by Ranger) was added to the reindeer noses for a touch of shine.
I love how the trees in this set look equally beautiful colored in green or snowy white for two completely different looks!
I like the way the Doodlebug Sugarplums 6x6 paper compliments the colors in my scene and balances out a design that might have otherwise felt a bit heavy on the one side.
For those who know me well, I'm a sucker for red & white prints so I couldn't resist creating a card with a red & white snowflake background using the little snowflake images in the set. This time I chose to decorate my tree with the little ornament image in the set. The sled image is perfect for pulling gifts, a Christmas tree or even the sitting reindeer.
To finish off my scene, I stamped the edges of my card panel with a scalloped border from our Sunny Borders stamp set and coordinating dies.
For my next card I have the reindeer pulling his Christmas tree on the sled. The set comes with two different ways for the reindeer to pull his sled with both a leather strap with jingle bells and a tied rope as seen here. I love how these trees come to life with a little creative coloring!
This time I used those same snowflakes for a soft, snowy backdrop. To save time, I added several to my clear block at once, giving me the ability to stamp and heat emboss my background in just a few minutes. For my sentiment I used a banner that is part of a set that will be shared on Wednesday. ;) You are going to see me using that a lot--It's quickly become my new favorite.
I thought I would also share a bonus card with you today, combining the sentiment from this set with a complimentary 7/8" stitched holly die that will automatically come free with each order placed in our online store starting on Friday, October 7th (while supplies last).
I have created a free printable PDF for you with step-by-step instructions on how you can re-create this card at home, found HERE.
