Herd of Reindeer on LOTV Launch Day

Hello lovely peeps and welcome to my new email follower :o)

We're launching the second batch of Christmas stamps at Lili of the Valley today. You'll be spoilt for choice as there are loads of gorgeous images to choose from.

Here I've used the Reindeer Collection - you get seven different images on an A5 sheet.

First I converted the digi stamps into png files so I could group them close together without the edges overlapping, then added them as Photos in Craft Artist. I arranged them on an A5 landscape card and typed in a sentiment using Annie BTN font.

After printing onto Super Smooth 250gsm card I coloured the reindeer in with Promarkers/Graph'Its

and did the sky with Faded Jeans Distress Ink and a blending tool.

A small metal charm tied with organza ribbon and cotton cord finishes it off.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
The Ribbon Girls September any card
Addicted to Stamps 152 Christmas
Penny Black and More  Get ready for Christmas
Sparkles Forum Christmas  #80 Christmas animals
Crafty Animals  #6 Anything Goes
Creative Craft Cottage Digi Creations #80 No patterned paper
Passion For Promarkers Challenge  #410 Make it digital
Simon Says Stamp (Wed)  Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by,

Love the reindeer card! I am rather new to LOTV digital images but I'm amassing quite a collection already - now to figure out how to convert to PNG files?! Thanks for the inspiration!

Katrina Bufton said...

Hi Tina. I use a really useful image viewer called Irfanview to view all my photos and images. To convert to PNG I just do 'Save As', select PNG for the filetype and click in the white area when it asks me what colour to make transparent.

Hi again Katrina, I didn't notice first visit that your images were re-sized digi's and our challenge requires hand stamped focal elements so sorry it won't be eligble.
