Christmas Song

Hi everyone,


Hope that you are well and that your week is going fine. 


It is still raining here and I do not believe that it is going away soon.  It is the type of weather were you want to stay indoors and craft !


We have a new challenge for you at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges which Julie has created and it is Christmas Carolers.  Interesting don’t you think!  Not sure well come over and check out what the other members of the Design Team have created.


My thoughts for this challenge immediately went to singing and as I want to go along with this idea I found myself being drawn to punch art once more.


As I really did not have any music sheets (yes I agree I could have printed something) and I did not have a stamp of a someone signing. 


I found this great tutorial sometime ago on the internet of a reindeer singing. The tutorial can be found at Dawn Olchefske’s website.


I have added my own little twist to my little reindeer as I did not have all the punches and I have given him a bow tie instead of a ribbon around his neck.


Here’s a list of what I used:


Extra-Large Oval – his head in Crumb Cake

Small Oval – mouth (unfortunately retired) in Basic Black

1-3/4” Circle – Body in Crumb Cake

1-1/4” Circle – Tummy in Very Vanilla

Word Window – Legs, Arms and Hoofs in Crumb Cake & Basic Black

Swirls Scribbles – Antlers and Bow Tie in Chocolate Chip & Real Red

Owl Builder – Nose in Real Rd


His is book is in Real Red cardstock and measures 1” x 1-1/2”.  His teeth have just been cut with scraps of Whisper White Card Stock.  The reindeer has been added to the card with dimensionals.


The base card is Old Olive, there is a layer of Letters to Santa DSP down one side and I have stamped out a sentiment from the Word Play stamp set “Tidings of Comfort & Joy” because my reindeers is singing lots of Carols not just “Rudolph the Red Noise Reindeer”  - LOL!


Did you want to meet him?  Here he is:



Stamp set: Word Play

Card: Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Real Red, Basic Black, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Very Vanilla
Ink: Real Red, Chocolate Chip

Accessories:  Swirls Scribbles Die, Extra-Large Oval Punch, Small Oval Punch (retired), Word Window Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Owl Builder Punch, Letters to Santa DSP, dauber, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



Isn’t he charming?!
