Stampin' Cat CTC200 Dashing Deer Stampin' Up!

I have some very exciting news to share with you tonight.  After working for the same company for 35 years I’ve decided on a career change.  I’m starting a new job tomorrow as an Assistant Accountant.  Wish me luck!!!

Welcome to another CASEing the Catty Blog Hop.  This week our inspiration comes from the Toil & Trouble section, pages 48-55 of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.   You may have arrived here from Rebecca’s gorgeous creation, thanks for continuing on with me.  Make sure you visit all the Design Team’s Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.


I’m not really into Halloween so this week I’ve turned the cute little Halloween tag, on page 50 of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue, into a Christmas tag.


I do love a good Reindeer on Christmas Cards and Dashing Deer has become a new favourite.

My tag has been punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch in Night of Navy with a layer of Twinkle Twinkle DSP.   The Deer has been embossed with Silver Embossing Powder then die cut with the co-ordinating Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies.

I’ve punched a circle from some Shimmery White Cardstock and used Pineapple Punch ink and an Aquapainter to give it some colour.  I’ve also added some Wink of Stella to give it a little more shimmer.  The sentiment is from the Peaceful Noel stamp set and has a layer of Silver Glimmer Paper behind it.  I’ve used some Night of Navy 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon for the bow.
