Cute Card Thursday – Anything Goes with Reindeer Farts

LOL!  Hey friends!  Did I grab your attention with my title today?!

Today starts a brand new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday and it’s an easy ‘ANYTHING GOES!’  Since it’s the first Thursday of the month, we are being sponsored by Whimsy Stamps!  Yay!  So please be sure to remember to add whatever creation you’re working on over in our gallery this week!

*News update:  This will be my last challenge as a design team member for Cute Card Thursday.  I have really loved being apart of the team and the wonderful ladies over there for over a year and a half. I wish them all well.  I’m sure I’ll be playing along in future challenges of course!*

Here’s the card I made with products from our sponsor:

BWHAA!! HA! HA!  Yep, I’m most positive it’s probably been that cold out over my way!  LOL!  It’s supposed to get down to the teens next week! Brr!

This hilarious digital image is called Reindeer Farts by Dustin Pike from Whimsy Stamps.  It comes with the sentiment which I wouldn’t want it without that!  LOL!  This image was released back in October, but with all of the Halloween going on, it sort of didn’t get a good “spotlight” on it, so I thought now would be a good time to pull it out and perhaps send it out to my brother for Christmas…which he’ll get a kick out of!  🙂

I started out with a white cardstock panel cut with a stitched rectangle die with the printed out sentiment at the top of it.  I pulled out the Whimsy Stamps Snow Flurry clear stamp set and white heat embossed some snowflakes in the background.  I ink blended some  Distress Oxide Inks over top of them in the colors:  Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch.  I sprizted some water over it, dapped it with a paper towel and once completely dry, I stamped out some more snowflakes in a few of the Distress Oxide Inks over that to give it a little depth.  The ink marks left over the white snowflakes were easily wiped away because the heat embossing resists the inks.  I covered this entire panel with a Shimmer Spray.  (You can see it in the photo below!)

I layered this piece onto a purple cardstock base and then layered it over a blue piece of cardstock cut from a stitched A2 sized rectangle die which was then mounted over a top folding A2 sized white card base.

I’ve used some White Glitterstock and cut a “snow hill” for the deer with a stitched hillside border die and glued that to cover the entire bottom of the card.  I also took another strip of that Glitterstock and used my MS goo border punch to create the small border above the sentiment, which generates a more “cold feeling” to the card.

I’ve printed out the deer image with Copic Blending Card, colored it up with Copics and then fussy cut it out…including the “fart cloud” and popped it up over the snowy hill with some foam tape.

Before attaching it to the glittery snow hill, I took a couple of Copic markers to create a bit of shading for the deer standing on the snow.  I also took a white gel pen and added some dot markings on the back of the deer.

You can also see where I’ve added some glossy accents to his eyeballs and I even took some Star dust glitter and added it to the snowflake in the “fart cloud”.  🙂

  1. I absolutely love this! Your background is totally amazing and I love the added die cut snowflakes and that dripping ice along the top. The reindeer’s eyes look great too all shiny like that! Just perfection as always my friend! xx

  2. I had to laugh when I saw this card – the deer looks so surprised – like did I really do that!!! Reminds me of our dogs when they slip one out. The coloring and accents on this card are beautiful and you did create a feeling of winter chill in the air. Next week is supposed to get that chill.

  3. What a lovely snowflake background, Vicki. I cannot imagine being as cold as your reindeer, but we Floridians have been pretty bundled up this week! I imagine anyone north of Georgia would think us hilarious wearing sweatshirts in 60 degree weather LOL Back to your card… I enjoy the way you have “two” highlighted spots in your background, and that dripping icicle border on top! Darling creation, Vicki! xx

    LOVE your fun card though and of course that reindeer is the best. I saw this same image on another blog and swore I’d get over there and get it. Still haven’t – but I will. Cute card Vicki.

  8. LOL this is adorable and that sentiment is too funny! Wow your background is just beautiful with all the layers of goodness. I was wondering what ever happened to Dustin Pike and his adorable images – I’ll have to take a look! Also, the touch of shadow in the snow is perfect.
