All Santa’d Out

Stamping_santa_believe
It’s a wrap!  I finally finished up and mailed my Christmas and holiday cards.  My stamping capacity was maxed at 48 cards.  However, I’m so excited that everyone I love will get a little something handmade by me this year.  All Santas were stamped with versamark and embossed to make the coloring process much easier.  Liquid Applique (white) adds a wonderful texture and sheen on the beard, mustache and trim.  Here are a some stamping highlights to share for inspiration.  Check out the Build A Brads (last photo).  Very swank!

  1. I am amazed at the attention to detail and craftsmanship of your Christmas cards. I am honored to have been a recipient!
    This blog is so well written and I hear your voice in every post. I must resolve to get out the ink pads in 2008.
    cheers!
