Get Your Santa On

This stamp set is such a hoot I couldn’t resist choosing it as today’s 2-4-Tuesday. Even the name of it is fun – Get Your Santa On!

And I admit for this first card there isn’t much originality as I so loved the design similar to this in the Holiday Catalog I just had to CASE it and make it mine. Thank you Stampin’ Up!

 This next stamp just begged for some added color from the Blendabilities Pens and who am I to say no!

Mingle All The Way Banners

An important lesson was learnt on this card, there is only so much that the Blendabilities Color Lifter can do!

I was determined to use this Happy Holiday stamp as a banner with the Trim the Tree DSP Stack providing some colorful yet coordinated banners to accompany it. It’s been an age since I’ve created some paper ribbon but the top of these banners gave me the perfect opportunity.

Santa Stache

After all the fun I had creating the tree ornaments with the Santa Stache Stamp Set last week, I’ve chosen it for this week’s 2-4-Tuesday cards.

Santa was my first choice and I couldn’t resist using snowflakes from the Under the Tree Specialty DSP (I wish I could buy a dozen sheets of JUST this) as his background, with red snowflakes from the Trim the Tree DSP Stack under those with Old Olive Cardstock as the final border.

Initially I die-cut just the Mustache Framelit from the Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper but I couldn’t stop there. I then punched a scallop circle of Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper for Santa’s beard!

For the next card I went with more snowflakes from the Trim the Tree DSP Stack for under the Nutcracker but I also stamped “nutty or nice” over the Baked Brown Sugar Cardstock background. This card also gave me the opportunity to use the All is Calm Snowflake Embellishments as charms!

Seasonally Scattered Christmas

Last week at a workshop the hostess wanted a Make & Take for Christmas but something a little different. Talk about challenging but the Trim the Tree DSP Stack gave me all the inspiration required.

Merry was heat-embossed with Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder directly onto the DSP, then we mixed things up with Early Espresso Cardstock as my final border and Early Espresso 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon. With the All is Calm Snowflake Embellishment I snipped the hanger from it, adhering it with Sticky Strip then finishing it off with a Rhinestone Basic Jewel. Voila!
