So I finally got to play along with my Dirty Dozen friends over at Splitcoaststampers in the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges! The challenges are still up for all those who are fan club members and you totally need to play along! Splitcoaststampers is a fabulous resource for stampers of any experience level and I just love all the challenges the Dirty Girls have provided all week.
I loved Lori’s Play It Again challenge and immediately pulled out my Dasher stamp. I still love him. Maybe one of my favorite stamps ever!! I thought a little gold would bring him up with the times and wow, was I right!! I stamped him in Gold Encore Ink onto White Vellum and heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Then he was cut out with Ovals Framelits. I wound some Gold Metallic Thread behind him and cinched it on with a Gold Metallic Mini Clothespin. He is up on Dimensionals that are hidden behind the embossing. The sentiment is from another retired set, Joyous Celebrations and was also stamped and embossed in Gold. The base of the card is Thick Whisper White card stock and I attached Gold Fancy Foil to the base. Doesn’t Dasher look fancy and fresh? I am so in love with this! Sometimes old stamps feel like old friends. They never let you down and provide tons of inspiration for your day!
