Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Treat

  I wanted to share this project before it was too late!  Christmas is only a few days away and then we'll be needing to think about Valentine's Day!  This project is also appropriate today as late yesterday Stampin' Up! announced that the Stocking Builder Punch will not be carried over to the new catalog in the summer.  In the past punches carried over so you always had a second chance if you didn't get it during the mini catalog.  Right now the Stocking punch will be available while supplies last and will not be available after January 4 when the Holiday Mini sales period is over.  So if you were thinking about getting the Stocking Builder punch (or if you bought the coordinating Stitched Stockings stamp set and were waiting to get the matching punch) do not wait....order it today before it's gone for good.  Stampin' Up! did soften this blow a little bit by teasing they were working on new holiday items for next year! 

  Hello Rudolph!  Yes, this little cutie was made with the Stocking Builder punch!  The head and the ear are from the Stocking punch, the antlers are the snowflake punch and the eyes and nose are from the owl punch. Cute isn't he?
   The head and ear are Crumb Cake with Chocolate Chip sponged lightly on the edges.  The antlers are Chocolate Chip.  The nose is made from the awesome red Glimmer Paper.  The eyes are Whisper White and Basic Black.  I added a little Real Red 1/8" taffeta bow to get him dressed up for the occasion.

  I made a whole herd of these guys to tuck into my stamping ladies November orders.  I ended up having extra pieces punched so I put those together to give to the ladies that work in the elementary school office.  I just adhered the heads to top of the candy cane wrapper.

  So if after seeing this and you need to get the Stocking punch before it's gone for good head over to my online store and click "shop now".  The Stocking Builder punch is item 124095.  Also, the Clearance Rack Blitz is still going on with a ton of greatly discounted products so you can order yourself a nice little Christmas gift!
