Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Reindeer Crossing

Welcome to the December Close To My Heart stamp of the month, Reindeer Crossing, blog hop!  It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, although I can't believe that December is here already!!!  (If you're already hopping, then you've probably arrived from Katy Taylor's blog.  From here, you'll visit Lauren Moore's blog next.)
Both of my cards feature the pair of deer and the Cedar and Pine collection.  For this card, I tore White Daisy cardstock to create my snow drifts, making sure the middle piece was large enough on the right side to stamp the deer in black.  After gluing the three pieces together, I painted the background with my clear shimmer brush and then added Diamond Stickles to the torn edges.
The card base is Charcoal cardstock that I brushed Charcoal Shimmer Brush across (back and forth a few times) to mimic a starry night sky.  I stamped the sentiment in Candy Apple.  For the pine bough, I stamped it in Black on Evergreen and on Toffee, fussy cutting the bough and then the pine cones.  Hopefully the Diamond Stickles look like snow?  I added a pair of clear sparkles to highlight the sentiment.
Hopefully in this photo you can see the clear shimmer brush snow.  The Diamond Stickles photograph very well!
My second card features the same reindeer pair and a  a pretty sketch from Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 4.  After assembling, I added the sprays of pine in Evergreen behind the sentiment banner and a few gold glitter gems.
It's hard to see in the photograph, but I brushed clear shimmer under the deer to resemble snow.
Thanks for visiting!  I hope that my cards have inspired you, especially to add some sparkle with shimmer brushes and/or stickles.  Be sure to leave a comment and then continue on to Lauren's blog.  Visit all 17 consultants' blogs to get you into the holiday spirit!
