SIP50 and MM207 Santa's Bag


Happy Wednesday, peeps!  I realized I was falling behind on my Christmas card stamping, so I checked out a couple of challenges and went to work!  The Merry Monday challenge this week is Santa's sack, and the Stamp Ink Paper challenge has a wonderful sketch!

SIP Sketch Challenge 50 800

I remembered this silhouette image I had from Katy Sue Designs (Santa), so I stamped Santa with his sack in Cherry Cobbler on some Very Vanilla cardstock and fussy-cut him out.  The papers are from MME's Vintage Christmas 6x6 pad:


and I stamped the reindeer and sleigh image from SU's Cozy Christmas in Sahara Sand ink behind the Santa before I popped him up with some dimensionals.  The tiny sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs:


I also added a couple of die-cut pine boughs (Poppystamps) and some SU twine:


Another one added to the stash!

Cassidy found some tiny wild strawberries growing in the yard and thought they would be fun to pick for her baby dolls!




They're cute, but NOT very tasty!  Enjoy your day!

I like the mix of patterns and the little pine sprigs! This is beautiful LeAnne. I didn't know there were strawberries that tiny!! Too bad they don't taste good, think how many you could eat LOL!!!

Oh boy, you're a whiz with patterned paper. The way you've layered it to showcase Santa and his bag is terrific. Especially love that you included the sleigh and reindeer...perfect touch.

Hi LeAnne, I love the colours you have used. The santa stamp is a lovely vintage santa and I like the slightly distressed papers too.
