Today I have a card that is also being featured on the Stamp N Plus blog.
The Santa stamp that can be found HERE was heat embossed with silver embossing powder using Versa Mark ink. Then I decided to give him some life by coloring him in with paint mixed with powdered chalk also by Stamp N Plus. The colors I used were Flesh for his face and Stardust for his beard. The hat part of the stamp didn't leave much room for color but I did manage to spread a little of the red chalk on there.
The red doily looking die cut is by Spellbinders and the circles were cut out using my Creative Memories cutting system. I hand cut the Santa out and if I could find my foam adhesive I would have popped him up but they are not making an appearance today or these past few weeks. I wonder if they got thrown away by accident. Maybe it's time to buy some new ones. I hate going into the big box stores because I never make it out of there with just my one item. Same for online shopping. Why not fill up that $6.99 shipping box, Right?
Anyway, The houndstooth patterned paper is by We R Memory Keepers and the flower paper and green circle paper is by Making Memories. The cardstock is by Recollections or Hobby Lobby. The sentiment stamp is also by Stamp N Plus. I'll include a picture of all the sentiments that you get when you purchase the sheet. See below. I stamped it with white craft ink by Stampin Up. The piece of cardstock was longer but I cut it off at the Santa to make it look like he was saying it. Kind of a stretch, I know, but work with me:)
So that's my card for today and now that I'm done with one wedding I move onto the next one, which is August 3rd. It's coming up fast and I have some time consuming work to get to. I hope to post more consistently even though I'm working on other stuff behind the scenes.
One last thing is this card would be perfect for the Christmas Cards all year Round challenge going on until the end of the month, which is All about Santa. Be sure to join in on the fun going on over there.
