Rudolph the red nose reindeer?? Soorreee I'm early :0)

Hi folks, Today I have been playing with a Sizzix die, a reindeer, it has to be Rudolph! I made three items, all different, got a bit carried away really :0)

My first is a small 15cm canvas with shrink plastic die cuts of the reindeer. The canvas has some Mod Rock for dimension and a string of beads with bells for sound, they tinkle LOL
More of the details are on the Craft Barn Blog

 My card is with Indigo Blu stamps and glue with silver holographic foil and gold leaf. The reindeer has again been die cut in shrink plastic, coloured with Alcohol inks and shrunk.
 A reindeer, full size, that's been die cut out of Copper sheet and then passed through an embossing folder, the design worked really well for his face and I thought for his muscles too, what d'you think?

Over at the Craft Barn the team have made some more die cut art work, they've been really inspired. Check it out HERE if you would like to see what they made.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful weekend, Gay x

Love the results of your play time Gay! The leaping reindeer on the little canvas are lovely and you are right about the embossing folder working so well on your last card but my favourite is the middle card. Love the alcohol inked/shrunk Rudolph and the foiling. I have the Sizzix/Alterations reindeer but it always disappoints me a little that they don't have antlers. This one is gorgeous.

Linda said...

Love all the three projects Gay! So nice to see such different work all made with the same die. And how cool to see the contrast between the delicate 'foil card' and the tough 'copper' reindeer. Wow!
