Inkspirational Guest Post

I am super stoked to be guesting over at Inkspirational Challenges. For the next two weeks, the challenge will focus on this photo for inspiration:

I've used Clearly Besotted Stamps  to create this festive little number. The deer is from Merry Little Christmas and the greeting is from Christmas Sparkle, embossed in red. That big bow is there for a reason. It's hiding a little ooops. Enough said! :)

Here's a closer look at the image. I coloured him with my beloved Faber-Castell Polychromos, followed by lashings of Clear Wink of Stella and a blob of Glossy Accent on his red nose. A few white sparkly sequins around him and the card is done.

Continuing my Christmas tags - here is my offering for Day17 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags. I'm using Clearly Besotted's Pretty Poinsettia stamps and die. My inspiration came from Svitlana Shayevich's card with its burlap cardstock and poinsettia.

My second tag is for Day 18, inspired by Carrisa Wiley's tag with a tree and presents around it. The tree is from Lawn Fawn's Trim The Tree stamp set.

I'm linking both tags over at Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags.

That's all from me today. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!



  1. Your GDT is cute yet crisp and fresh looking. I love the Nordic style paper and the colouring on your reindeer is fabulous. I love all the little touches of sparkle and gloss. Great idea for covering up your mistake - I'd never have known. Thanks so much for being our wonderful Guest Designer at Inkspirational.

    Great tags too - love the way the elements spill off the base.
