Stampin Friends Blog Hop: Happy Holidays



Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Happy Holidays.  If you are following along the hop, you have arrived from Jean's blog. Be sure to read through my blog, comment below and continue to Heidi's blog. If you get lost along the way, you can find a list of Blog Hoppers at the end of each Blog.

Here are the Holiday projects I created for this month’s hop.
Up first is the card I created. 


I used cardstock from Fun Stanmpers Journey and pattern paper from Photo Play to create the base of the card.  
I then stamped this cute little Santa from Kindred Stamps onto a piece of Cardstock and colored him with my Copics.
Hat, Jacket, Pants: R39, R35, R29
Beard, eyebrows and mustache: C1, C00
Boots: 100
Skin: E21, E00
Buckle: Y28
Bag: G94, G24

 I then die cut the circle from Circle Around die set from Fun Stampers Journey and popped Santa on top of the circle.

To finish the card, I added a twine bow and little paper flags.  I then stamped the sentiment from Kindred Stamps with Cranberry Bliss ink from Fun Stampers Journey.  Then I added some white glitter Stickles to his hat and suit for fun.
For my project, I created a little mini mailbox for letters to Santa.

I used a svg file from Lori Whitlock to create the mini mailbox.  I cut the mailbox at 2 inches high, so it was proportional to Santa.  I placed a Hershey's Kiss inside the mailbox to be used as a treat box.    
I colored Santa the same way as above.

Here are the card and mailbox together.

  I hope you liked the projects I shared and you will have some ideas after continuing with the hop.  Please leave me a comment and keep on hopping.
