Stamp Set Showcase Week 12 (6)


I have had a busy day today cleaning out my guinea pigs,
but I was also prepping several of them ready to go to a show this weekend, and that requires patients and a LOT of grooming, but they look very handsome for it.
We also had to fit some slats to the top of the pygmy goats stalls as they had learnt how to jump over the top of the stall to get to their treats (herb pony nuts) ... the little monkeys!
todays penultinate project for this week is this card with an exercising santa and it goes so well with the sentiment stamp from the same stamp set.

As always begin by making your A6 card blank by trimming a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 21cms x 14.8cms.
Score the long side at 10.5cms, fold along the score line and then burnish the fold using your bone folder.
Put to one side to avoid contaminating the card blank with your ink pads or inky fingers

Trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 13.8cms x 9.6cms
Use the Dotty Angles photopolymer stamp this trimmed cardstock with Silver encore ink to create the background for your card.
Stamp your exercising Santa in the bottom right corner using Tuxedo Black Memento ink
Give the ink a few seconds to dry.
Stamp a second Santa (the same one as on the card), also in Black Memento ink
Colour in both of the santa's using the same Blendabitlities Pens (cherry cobbler assortment) technique as explained in the past few days blogs
By starting with the lightest shade of red, working darker for shadings.
Stamp the 'May Visions of Santa Dance in your head' onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock in Cherry Cobbler ink. Trim the sentiment so you have a 3mm border around the sentiment.
Die cut a banner from Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Banner Framelits.
Mount the sentiment onto the banner using Stampin Dimensionals
Tie a piece ofReal Red 1/8" Taffetta Ribbon around the stamped piece of card and tie a ribbon. Mat (layer/mount) this onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock measuring  10cms x 14.3cms
Using Papersnips, cut out the second Santa you stamped & Painted, and use Stampin Dimensionals to mount him directly on top of the sant on your card front.
Attach the Banner on the left hand side of the card.
Add some Basic Rhinestones to the santa and the front of the santa.
attach the card topper to the card blank ... and you're done
