Royal Blog Tour!

5:00 PM Edit This 41 Comments »

Welcome!! Thanks for coming along on the Blog Tour! My featured stamp set is Dasher. It's on the last page of the catalog (208) and is only $8.95! All the stamps on this page are under $10, so don't miss it.

The first thing I thought of with Dasher is a wintery scene. I have him embossed in silver here with some snowflakes and a snow mound in Craft white on Night of Navy card stock. The embossed sentiment and snowflakes are from a new Hostess Set, Christmas Punch. I cut out the white oval and the large oval punch in Brushed Silver CS was the perfect layer for it, on top of the pretty organza ribbon.


If you look closely, you'll see my image is slightly different in this one. I inked him up on Vanilla CS with the Soft Suede marker so that I could omit 2 snowflakes that were in the antlers. This way, he doesn't look as wintery. I distressed the edges and sponged in the Soft Suede and layered on the Suede, then Always Artichoke. The Designer paper is from Autumn Traditions, with Soft Suede brayered over it. The white was too stark for me. Now it almost looks like camouflage, don't you think? The last element is the Soft Suede polka dot ribbon, only I used the solid side and manipulated the knot so the dots wouldn't show.

So, I hope you enjoyed my versions of Dasher. Be sure to check out all the other great ideas on this tour and come back to visit me for some blog candy soon! All comments are appreciated!

We love it! My husband (Who isn't usually into crafts) saw the Dasher stamp and loves it but made the excuse of not knowing what to do with it. Now he can see some examples and he wants the stamp and more!
