I stamped my dasher image using chocolate chip ink and then I cut it in a circle shape using my nesties. Here's a tip for getting the stamp to stamp a solid and 'not so blotchy' image. I inked up my stamp really well using my SU chocolate chip ink pad and then using my SU chocolate chip marker I color over it again. This helps to sort of spread around the ink a little better and I always get a nicely stamped image when I do this. Don't forget to 'huff' on the stamp before stamping onto your card stock. You can also stamp over the image twice (using your stamp-a-ma-jig of course, but that technique didn't work very well with this image because of the antlers).
My background is embossed using the swirly embossing folder from the Cuttlebug winter wonderland set. The bottom edge of my chocolate chip layer was punched using my EK Success wavy border punch.
And finally, I decided to add a bit of glitter on dasher's antlers. The glitter is there, but it's just hard to see it in my photo- one day I'm going to learn how to photograph glitter although I did start making my photos larger, did anyone notice? I'm hoping it's better this way.
Well, that's about it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!
