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