Dylusions Chrismas Cards - Part 5

 Love, love, love this cute little reindeer.  Check out the legs, yep cut off and now doing the splits!  The bobbles on the horns and the nose have Glossy Accents on them for extra shine.  All of the feature elements are cut out and glued on the back ground.  This allows the images and the words to really stand out.  Most of Dyan's stamps are made for the journals, but with a little creativity they can be modified to stamps.

Check out Dyan's demo of her seasonal stamp sets here.

Okay, I promised... here is me stepping out a little.  I borrowed the inspiration for an online card, but this time I incorporated some of the tips and techniques I learned at Dyan's workshop in Wichita Falls.  Check out the circles... those are spray caps tapped into blue and "stamped" onto the background.  Next spray the white on your craft mat and slightly offset from the blue circles.

The lines on the left are done in a similar manner using a craft scraper to add blue vertical lines and horizontal lines.  Then using the white just offset from the blue.

My Inspiration from Dyan Reaveley
The holly at the top of the card is done using the bleach out technique shown here.
