October Whimsy Stamps Release Day 3

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Hi friends and welcome to day 3 of the October 2017 Whimsy Stamps release. All the new products will be available starting on October 7th.

I am showcasing the beautiful new St. Nicholas stamp set today. I love the fun Santa image in the set.  For my card, I started by stamping my Santa and then I did a bit of masking with this pen. After it was dry, I blended on some various Distress Inks for my background.  I now removed the masking fluid and got to work coloring the image with my Copics. You can see that I got a little heavy handed with the cuff on Santa's hat. It's a lot more grey than I would have liked. 

I stamped one of the sentiments from the stamp set onto my card panel and then die cut the whole thing with the largest A2 size of the Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles.

I hope you'll join me back here tomorrow for day 4 of the release. Crafty hugs!

That is a fun Santa image and you've colored it in nicely. I really like the ink blended background. Those colors are so pretty together. The sentiment is wonderful. Great job! :) Hugs!

What a beautiful Santa! I love the curls of his beard and his crescent moon shape. You made a beautiful card - perhaps it's partly the blue background you made that reminded me of the moon? If so, NICE Work!
