It’s time for the Stamp Review Crew: Dashing Deer Edition! If this is your very first visit to one of our hops, the Stamp Review Crew is a group of international Stampin’ Up! demonstrators whose mission is to do a blog hop on the first, third and fifth Mondays of each month. Our hops are unique because each of us features the same stamp set used in a variety of ways, giving you loads of inspiration for that set. The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog. You will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop whenever you want.

This week we are featuring the Dashing Deer bundle. If you are following along in order, you have just arrived from the amazing Heidi Baks.  After visiting me, you will continue to the next stop, the talented Holly Krautkremer.  Be prepared to be inspired!

Dashing Deer – Bag, Tag and Card

bag, tag, card

I LOVE the Dashing Deer bundle. The coordinating Detailed Deer thinlits are so elegant.  The leaping deer thinlit is one of my favorites, reminding me a wee bit of the Art Deco style gazelles that I absolutely adore.  I used this thinlit to design a gift tag and matching card.  Because they are SO easy to make,  I am including a step-by-step tutorial so you can create your own.

Your Step-by-Step Guide
  1. Score the Sahara Sand cardstock at 5-1/2” to form the card base.
  2. Mat the designer paper onto the Whisper White cardstock and adhere to the card base.
  3. Carefully position the deer thinlit in the middle of the copper foil. Angle it so it appears as if it is leaping. Die cut out. Use the negative piece for the card, and save the deer to create the tag.
