Santa Baby Blog Hop with Connie

Santa Baby slip a Cricut under the tree, for me!
I’ve been an awful good girl
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight.
Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some ribbons bought at Hobby Lobby
I really do believe in you
Let’s see if you believe in me
Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, some bling
Rhinestones, sequins, or stickles will do
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight!

I made two Santa inspired cards for you.  The first one I actually made second after a wave of feelings of retro.  I used character stamps to create a scene.  While exploring the coloring for Hermey and Santa I noticed the trees in the movie were all made of felt.  I just had to recreate them!


Here is how I made the felt Christmas tree from a felt eyelet frame:

American Craft black pigment ink
Judikins clear detail embossing powder
a variety of AC and Copic alcohol ink markers
felt eyelet frame
glitter and asst brads
Creative Memories snowflake punch
red and white card stock

Quick Quotes coal miner chalking ink

I based this card on a sketch over at Happy Little Stampers:

(their challenge is good until 12/29ish)

I used the old Creative Memories cutting systems for the circles after I stamped the sentiment.  I used pop dots after I distressed the white card stock with plenty of QQ chalking inks.

My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Christmas
Recollections gems
Tim Holtz tinsel
Anna Griffin crimson ink
red and white card stock
Quick Quotes chalking inks: latte, antique linen, maraschino cherry

 Up next is Sharon!!

Here's our Jolly line up in case you get lost.
