Holidays from the Heart Blog Hop

Ho Ho Ho! It’s time to Hop, Hop, Hop! Welcome to the Close to My Heart Holidays from the Heart blog hop.

Santa Claus closeup Holidays from the Heart card

I’m loving this new mini catalog with exclusive holiday themed papers, stamps and accessories. The Santa Claus set is bursting with retro flair, and I couldn’t wait to put my spin on the traditional red & green Christmas colors to create a whimsical card.

Santa Claus Holiday From the Heart Card

I used the Santa Claus stamp set for the image and sentiment, plus Geometric Backgrounds stamp set to create my own patterned paper. Colors are Pear, Sweet Leaf, Tulip and Whisper. I watercolored santa’s face using Crème Brulee and Blush inkpads, and added a watery wash of Sky ink around Santa’s head. The hat is paper pieced, stamped in Tulip.

The 10 piece Santa Claus stamp set is just $13.95, perfect for pages, cards, gifts and more! You can shop for this set and other new products from the Holidays From the Heart Gift Guide on my website from October 15-December 31. Some items have limited quantities so don’t miss out!
Bonus! Choose one “star” product FREE for every $100 in retail-priced items in your order from the gift guide or the Autumn/Winter 2013 catalog.

Awesome card Teresa. I love making my own background paper, so this is just totally fabulous, a scraplifter creation.

LOVE! I have questioned my use of this stamp set since seeing I know what to do with that Santa! I also appreciate your mix of colours.

Love the pop of colour from the bright green! Wasn't sure how I felt about this stamp but the more I see it, the more I like it! :)

Super cute card! Love the background paper you created and the retro Santa!

I love that you used the background stamp for this one. Sometimes I need a little kick in the head to remember that we have great background stamps and I should use them more often. Well done as always!
