Card "Create"tions Week 1!

WOW! What an exciting week we just completed at Create with Connie & Mary as we debuted our 1st ever Card "Create"tions Edition. If you missed it you can still sign up by visiting Create with Connie & Mary!

Today our design team is showing off some "favors" for the holiday season using the stamp set we were assigned during Week #1.  My stamp set is "Christmas Deer":

The first thing that came to mind was a punch art reindeer. A little light bulb went off in my head when thinking "hmmm, what will I used for the antlers?" First let's talk about the face:

Do you recognize the shape of the goodie box? It's the "Purse Die" with the top flap cut off! For the eyes I used the "Owl Punch" and for the nose I used the "Small Heart Punch" and "Red Glimmer Paper". So how did I use the stamp set in this favor? I used the little ornaments and the scroll design from the antlers to create the cute little tag you see above.

Now on to those antlers:

I used the "Autumn Accents Die" and cut out (2) of the oak leaf shape. Yes, really, those are leaves! Now lets move down to the ears:

The ears are layered and cut out with the "Blossoms Petals Punch". I folded the pointy ends over about 1/4" and glued them to my favor box. I filled my favor box with "Whoppers" because, well, they reminded me of something deers do in the woods!

Here is a list of Stampin' Up! supplies I used for my project:
  • Cardstock: Early Espresso, Whisper White, Basic Black, Pink Pirouette
  • DSP: Red Glimmer Paper
  • Stamp Sets: Christmas Deer, Teeny Tiny Wishes
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Purse Die , Owl Punch, Small Heart Punch, Word Window Punch, Blossom Petals Punch, Small Oval Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Autumn Accents Die, Sticky Strip, Tombow Multi-purpose Glue
  • Accessories: Linen Thread
