Reindeer Poop!

Hi all,
I am back today with some punch art. I was on Splitcoast a couple of weeks ago and saw that someone had made a Reindeer punch art lolly bag and had labeled it Reindeer food http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1538732?&si=SUO
I thought that was an excellent idea and had to CASE it. I decided to go with Reindeer Poop! (maltesers) So on Saturday I set about making 2o of them for the Kindy Kids in my class, and also made an extra one for my 4 year old nephew Jack. I used the top note die for the head and a couple of circle punches for the eyes and nose, the antlers was made on my Cricut, the papers used are Chocolate Chip, Close to cocoa, Basic Black, Whisper White and Real Red.
I was very happy with how they turned out, I hope the Kindy Kids love them too!

Easy Xmas Card

Hi, Today I have an easy Christmas card to show you. I made it up quickly a couple of nights ago after spending hours on another more complex card that I didn't like in the end. This one just has a bit of ribbon, punchouts and cardstock. Instead of using a Chocolate chip ornament punchout I used the Ornament punch on the Merry Moments DSP so it exposed the Chocolate Chip CS behind. For a simple card I think it looks rather nice.
Stamps: Seasonal Wishes (retired).
Ink: Chocolate Chip.
Papers: Merry Moments DSP (US Catalogue), Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Whisper White CS.
Ribbon: Old Olive 1/4" and 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon.
Punches: Large Oval, Scallop Oval (from Australian Spring Mini), Scallop Edge and Ornament (US Christmas Mini) punches. I also used a handheld punch to make the holes on the scallop edge.
Adhesives: Stampin' Dimensionals, Snail and Mini Glue Dots.
