Stampin’ For The Week-End Challenge

Hi, I have another chance for you to enter to win more gorgeous Bugaboo Stamps.  We are sponsoring Stampin' For The Week-End, and their theme is “Anything Goes”.  For all the information and details for the challenge and prizes please hop over to the SFTW blog.  Good luck!

Stocking Santa - Ornament (2)

I found a tutorial on YouTube to make this “Star Fold” card.  The instructions were well done, and the card went together very quickly.  The designer papers that I used are from the Winter Papers pad by My Minds Eye.  I used the same papers for the rolled roses which I made using the MFT die. 

Stocking Santa - Ornament (3)

This is what the inside of the card looks like.  I stamped holly and berries along the inside and then went over it with a Sakura glitter pen.

Stocking Santa - Ornament

I took a close-up of the inside so you could see the image better.  This is the Stocking Santa – Ornament digital image.  I colored the Santa with Copics, but paper pieced the ornament with the same DP.  The trees were cut with a Cricut cartridge.  I added red ornaments to the trees with stickles.

Thanks for stopping by!
