Merry & Bright Reindeer – Video Tutorial


Today’s card was designed using the Stampin’ Up! Cookie Cutter Stamp Set and Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.

This fun reindeer can easily turn into Rudolph by stamping it twice and cutting his red nose out.

The fabulous stripes are from the Stampin’ Up! Basket for You Hostess Stamp Set, which is available now through June 2017.

The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Stitched with Cheer Stamp Set.  Keeping in mind, you can certainly change up the sentiment or background.

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a Blessed Day!!  Brandy


1. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of whisper white cardstock and fold it in half. This is your base.

2. Using your striped stamp and a real red stamp pad to add your background design.

Tip: Stamp one set of stripes on a piece of scrap paper and cut it out.  This will help you keep your place and a uniform width when you stamp your stripes.  


1. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 3″ piece of real red cardstock. This is your base rectangle.

2. Cut a 4″ x 2-3/4″ piece of real red cardstock. This rectangle will layer on top of the base rectangle.

3. Cut a 3-3/4″ x  2-1/2″ piece of whisper white cardstock. Adhere this rectangle to the top of your real red rectangle.


1. Using the Cookie reindeerhrCutter Stamp Set and Chocolate Chip Ink to stamp your reindeer.

Tip: Stamp your reindeer a second time on scrap paper in real red ink.  Use your scissors to cut out his nose.  If you adhere it to the top of your original image, you get Rudolph!

2. Use the Stampin Up coordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch to cut out your reindeer.

3. Stamp your sentiment in Chocolate Chip and cut it out using scissors or the Bunch of Banners Framelits Die.

4. I used the 1/8″ Silver Ribbon to tie a bow.  I used a mini glue dot to add it to my card.

    OOPS! I meant to say I have striped DSP I can cut diagonally to look like the cute stamped background you created. Or, I can use the stripe background stamp similarly. Ooh, you have my creativity wheels turning. Thanks!

    Such a cute card. And a great template for other focal images. I don’t have the set, but I do have the DSP which will compliment lots of focal images. TFS!

    Hi Brandy~ I just love watching the actual card making process on your tutorials! It is nice to see how the sets go together with the punches. I would never have guessed that reindeer could fit inside that gingerbread man punch 🙂 I am making a list of things to order. Thanks again for taking care of Tina and I as customers way down here on the island!
    Sincerely, Suzanne
