I've made another Christmas card featuring this adorable stamp from YNS!  It's called "Santa's Helpers".  I just love the penguin helping Santa get down the  I colored the image with Copics and then used the die to cut it out and pop it up on the sky/moon background I created using distress inks.  I love that you can get the dies to match the stamps with YNS.  So much easier then cutting them out by hand....which I have done a lot of!!  The distress ink colors I used for the evening sky were Faded Jeans and Salty Ocean.  Then I just splashed on some white for stars.  The moon is from the stamp set by Altenew called "To The Moon".  I used silver ink to stamp it with.  The paper is from the Echo Park - I Love Winter paper pad.  The bow and the Jingle Bell border are both dies from YNS.  So that's pretty much it and I am happy with how it turned out!  Thanks for dropping by and have a great week!
