Looks like Reindeer!

This adorable little chap is taking really great care of his Reindeer pal, it's so handy that he has a parcel to stand on so he can hold the bag of oats up high enough! This image is one of the Belles 'n' Whistles new Christmas stamps by the artist Elisabeth Bell. For the layout I used a sketch from the Let's Get Stamping weekly challenge over on Craftbubble from a few weeks ago. I coloured the image with ProMarkers, adding Spica glitter pen to the bells on the Reindeer's harness and on the holly berries. Glossy Accents dusted with Glamour dust give the trim and bobble of his hat and the bow on the present added sparkle. The background paper is from my stash, the flowers were punched out using a Quickkutz Squeeze and the poinsettia die which my crafting pal Annie let me have a play with recently. The fronds were cut using a Martha Stewart punch and I added some gold Card Candy to the centre of each flower to finish them off, and three more in green at the bottom right. I cut the image out using a nestabilities labels 1 die and mounted this on some red mirror card cut with a slightly larger size of the same die.

Oh I DO love this image. What a great card. I can almost hear those little elves tapping away with their hammers in Santy's workshop.... or is it just hail on the window???? Lx
