Get Your Santa On

 There are 2 Santa-themed stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog.  I prefer my Santas to be cute and a little on the chubby side, as opposed to dancing and showing a little too much body hair (see the Visions of Santa stamp set).  Obviously, I opted for the Get Your Santa On stamp set.

If you are ever in a design rut, it can be helpful to CASE—copy and share.  I am also a HUGE fan of using sketches.  For this card, I used elements of a card shown on page 30 of the Holiday catalog and combined it with this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

The result is a simple but attractive card.  I colored the Santa image with the Blendabilities markers—Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate, and the Skin Tone Assortment.  I really love the skin tones and how easy it is to add just a little pink hue to his cheeks and nose.

Are you ready to start your Christmas cards?

Well, I've started to add classes to my Fall calendar.  If you are local to Kokomo, Indiana, you'll want to check them out here.

Happy Stampin'

    I agree – that hairy Santa is a little creepy! I like the stamp that you chose much better. Beautifully colored. Thanks you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

    This is adorable! I like him much better with his chest hair covered up. 😉 Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
