Design Team Project for the Glitter Geeks Challenge

Hello my lovelies. Well so here we are Friday night, I hope you are all looking forward to a fab week end ahead!

As you may have read in my earlier chatter I am now a Design Team member for the fabulous Glitter Geeks

This weeks challenge is to use a Digi stamp called Rudy,

so as soon as I saw him I knew exactly what I wanted to make. I decided to make a Christmas scene and I printed out 9 Rudy's, because that is how many Santa used to deliver our pressies!LOL
Can you remember all their names.........if you can't here's what they are all called...

Dancer, Dasher, Prancer, Vixen, Cupid, Comet, Blitzen, Donner and of course my favourite Rudolph the red nose reindeer.
So heres what I made........

A Christmas Scene...

To make this I used thick A4 white card for the base and covered in Christmas themed decorative paper. I inked the edges with red ink.
I printed out 9 Rudy digi stamps and coloured them in with my Polychromo pencils. I made sure I coloured 1 Rudy with a red nose and all the other's with a brown nose.
I then drew tabs at the bottom of the feet and carefully cut out the images making sure the tabs are attached to the feet. These tabs are glued down to the base, this is how the Rudy's are able to stand up. Once cut out, put aside till ready to use.
I then made a sleigh out of red card and covered with decorative paper. I used a santa head topper, and stuck it to the top of the head rest on the sleigh. I cut a bauble die cut so that it would fit just under the head making it look like Santas body. I attached the sleigh to the base with pinflair and then glued various diecuts and embellishments in and around the sleigh.
I used pinflair to then stick each of the Rudy's to the base. Make sure you have two rows of 4 and  Rudolph at the very front. Apply the glue to the tabs and press down firmly. I then used red stickles on top to blend them into the rest of the colour scheme. Add various embellishments and die cuts to the base to make a Christmassy scene. Finally I wrote the names on the fronts with a fine pen and threaded red ribbon through from the front to the back and tied in a knot so this looks like the reigns.
The great thing about this project is you can use any colour scheme you wish and vary the embellishments to suit what you may already have in your crafty stash!
I loved making this and it is now sat on show in my dining room.
I hope you join us at this weeks Glitter Geeks challenge, I would love to see you there,
have fun, happy crafting and have a lovely week end,
lots of love NJ XX
