Reindeer & Bear

Hello hello!

I've got two cards to share today.  First up is for the Just Add "R" challenge at Just Add Ink.  I had fun arranging these Authentique papers and gave myself points for putting another (tiny) dent into the patterned paper stash.  The reindeer is from Essentials by Ellen and I thought he needed a little jingle bell for just a bit more holiday cheer.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Kraft) Papertrey Ink, (Chocolate Chip) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  Authentique
Stamps:  (Sentiment) Hero Arts
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukeniko
Die:  (Reindeer) Essentials by Ellen
Twine:  Darice
Glitter:  (White Wink of Stella) ZigGems:  Recollections

Next up is a card for the Furry Friends challenge at the Simon Says Wednesday challenge.  The team highlighted Newton's Nook stamps this week so I made another Winston card and paired him with a Paper Smooches sentiment.  My background was inspired by Jeanne of A Kept Life who has made a bunch of brilliant cards with bright striped backgrounds that I LOVE like here, here and here.  Check out her blog if you never have - she has a fun, bright and cheery style.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Real Red, Cucumber Crush, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Bear from Winston's Home for Christmas) Newton's Nook, (Sentiment from Christmas Sampler) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukeniko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Die:  (Chevron) My Favourite Things, (Stitched Square) Lil' Inker Designs
Markers:  Copic
Glitter:  (White Wink of Stella) Zig
Gems:  Recollections

This is a great way to use up your pattern paper. It's a very effective technique too. Chantell Just Add Ink

Your patterned papers go so well together and look great behind that deer, Jen. I just ordered it for myself. The little is cute wit that bright Christmas-y background.
