In my memory I knew I had a stamp showing the word Noel, but it took me a good 30 minutes to find it. I thought it would be perfect for this challenge so it was a relief when I found which box it was in. I started by heat embossing the word all over the panel in white. Using a star stamp from another set I filled in a few spaces with the stars and heat embossed them in gold. I then inked in various distress oxide blues to create a night sky background and sprinkled some water to add more faint stars. All stamps used come from different GKD sets. After stamping and heat embossing the deer I added a touch of colour to his scarf and booties before fussy cutting around him. Using foam squares I popped him up on the card front after adding a small glittery snow bank to ground him. I met the challenge twice by using the word Noel and creating a night sky so I’m happy with that. At least it is another Xmas card to add to my small stash.

  1. Cute with the decorated deer and stars in the sky. Glad you located Noel. I have all of my stamps in containers and it will take a while to locate a specific one that is on my mind, so I totally get how long it takes to find the exact stamp.

  2. Great background for your reindeer. The night sky background turned out wonderfully. So difficult to locate that one stamp that you know you have and mine aren’t even packed away and I have trouble finding a particular one. LOL..

    1. Not being organized bothers me more than it should, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I shall be glad to be able to put things away properly. Right now I cannot find my rubber mat for doing embossing with dies. Oh well, I”m sure it will turn up.


    1. I like that deer but having looked at the card several times am thinking perhaps not having the deer at all would have been a better choice. Glad you like it.


  3. This is a fabulous Christmas card, Johanna. Glad you found your Noel stamp….despite my well organised craft room I still find myself ‘hunting’ images & sentiments I just know I have somewhere… Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week. x
