TSSC: 40: Faux Handmade Paper


I just love this Santa from Rubberstamp Avenue. It is my all-time favorite. To me, this IS Santa. I couldn't resist using him for the Technostamper Sketch Challenge (#40) this week!

I stamped my Santa in black, then colored him with chalks. i edged him in gold, layered in white, then put him on a rich piece of Faux handmade paper (August 2008 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter). That is layered on a piece of blue embossed paper, over a white card. The snowflakes are felt, and I added glitter to them.

Doesn't it just leave you wishin' for December 24th?

very cute card! I love it. Any chance you know where on RSA you found this stamp? I can't seem to find it because you are right this "is" Santa and I must have one of them in my stamp stash!
