Hello Sunny Studio Stamps friends! It’s Bobbi here with a card featuring the new Reindeer Games stamps and dies. Jolly Santa must feed the reindeer before their big night, flying in the sky. This herd loves all things sweet including candy canes, colorful gumdrops, and peppermints, too. This is food fit for Rudolph and all the reindeer!

To make this 5″ X 7″ card, I created a simple background scene using the Scenic Route stamps. I blended on some blue ink at the top for the sky. I splattered on a little white paint for snow and added a few darker dots of blue in the sky. A little blue coloring was also added to the trees. I wanted to keep the background super simple so all the attention would be on the foreground scene. It’s Santa feeding the reindeer gang!

I stamped, colored and die cut the reindeer and Santa. For the candy, I used the candy cane, peppermint and gumdrop dies from the Gingerbread House dies. I put two candy canes in Santa’s hands. The reindeer on both sides of Santa are ready to take a few licks from these sweet treats! Gumdrops and peppermints, plus a broken candy cane cover the snowy hills.

I stamped a few sentiments from the Reindeer Games stamps at the top and bottom and shaded around the elements to ground them and finish this card. I used the following Copic Marker colors to color in the elements:

  • Browns: E00, E04, E11, E42, E47, E44, E55, E57
  • Greens YG05, Yg07, YG02, Yg00
  • Reds: R89, R59, R29, R27, R14, R22, R20, R00
  • Cool Grays: 100, C7, C5, C3, C1, C00
  • Pinks: RV17, RV55, RV02
  • Purples: V09, V06, V05
  • Blues: B000, B00, B02

I also used a Gelly Roll white ink pen for accents such as Santa’s beard and highlights on the candy pieces. Santa, the candy canes in his hands and the front-rightside reindeer were attached using dimensional foam tabs.
