Now onto my inspiration. This is my second take on the  Jumbo Dear Santa stamp, which I absolutely adore. My previous sparkly Christmas Santa card had more of a 'colourful shabby chic' vibe. This time I opted for a textured art journal-ish style but still in keeping with a vintage look I was after.



I started by creating a background for my card using the paints, inks, stamps and the Bubble stencil. Here is my finished background.


Supplies:

Stampendous: snowflakes stamp from Jumbo Penguin Snow, script stamp from Stack Art Angel Wings Kit
Art Anthology: Heart and Silk Tie Color Sprays, Stone Effects - Sand Stone, Sorbet - Kenyan Copper, Velvet - Lemon Tart; Bubbles stencil



I cut some scrap pieces of patterned paper to form a Christmas tree and adhered it to the background with Adhesive Sheets. I stenciled the baubles through the Bubbles stencil with Kenyan Copper paint. The star was painted with the Lemon Tart.

Next I stamped the Jumbo Dear Santa onto kraft card and coloured it with Inktense pencils. I added some accent highlights to the Santa's suit with the Kenyan Copper paint - I love shimmer paints and this one is supper yummy! I popped the Santa onto some 3D Foam Squares and adhered him to the card.

To finish the card I added some rub-ons, banner and cut of words (from Prima flowers packaging).

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: Adhesive Sheets 6x12"3D Foam Pennants3D Foam Squares - Mix WhiteCrafty Power Tape.

Other: Inktense Pencils, Echo Park Lovely Notables papers, Finnabair Prima - Vintage Vanity, Opaque Cotton White StazOn ink, Black Archival ink, Dylusions White Linen ink spray, Maya Road Calendar rub-ons.

Soooo... playing today are:

Stamping Santa on the kraft is a great idea. Hadn't thought of that before but I'll be doing it now. the white edges left from the cutting and stamping on white paper always look so stark.
Love the project. The Christmas tree is cute.
thanks for sharing.
