Cheery Dasher

My goodness! Here it is already the middle of October and I haven't had Dasher off the shelf yet! Remember him - that cute little reindeer? He's still around you know. Last year I couldn't stop using the stamp, and this year he's been languishing on the shelf. Poor little reindeer!! Well, that means it's time to dust him off and ink him up. I'm sure he'll be much happier with a fresh coat of ink on him. And there's new Designer Papers to use, and new colors. That's just what he needs to freshen him up a bit. So off we go....
Stamps: Dasher, Snow Swirled, and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, and Whisper White with Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper
Ink: Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso
Accessories: Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Scallop Square Punch, Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Seam Binding, Basic Pearls, and Dimensionals
This card looks very festive in an understated vintage way. I don't always want glitzy, bright cards. In fact, I usually go much more for the clean and simple look like this card.
If you haven't tried the new Seam Binding ribbon, you really need to give it a try. It's so soft and supple, you can easily make a nice bow. Too bad this card didn't seem to have enough room for a full bow, so it just has a little knot instead. And don't all these colors match nicely? From the ink and ribbon, to the cardstock and DSP, all of the Cherry Cobbler pieces look wonderful together. Stampin' Up! makes it so easy for all of you 'picky color people' to be satisfied and happy with the results! Come on, I know there's lots of us out there that just have to have everything match up just right!! lol So get your supplies out and start stamping. You're going to have fun and make a masterpiece, I'm sure of it!
Happy stamping!

Cherry Cobbler and Dasher all on one card-almost too much for me to handle!! I haven't pulled dasher out yet either-now where is he hiding?
