Hello there! We have Nadine Carlier here on the blog today with a brilliant and fun card featuring our Santa Claus stamp set…
Can you believe Christmas is less than two months away? It will be here before we know it! I have put away all my Halloween card making supplies and have pulled out all my Christmas card making supplies. I have made a few Christmas cards already, but I need to get a lot more done. So get ready for a lot of Christmas card inspiration from me in the next few months.
The Santa Claus Stamp Set by Visible Image
is such a fun stamp set. Instead of using the entire Santa image, I just stamped his legs with some VersaFine Clair in Nocturne
and colored them in with Copic Markers. For the chimney, I stamped it two times using VersaFine Clair in Acorn
but reversed the stamp, so the chimney was stacked up to be taller. Then I fussy cut out both of the images.
I used a Fantastix with some VersaFine Clair in Acorn to color in the white areas of the chimney. Then, I adhered Santas legs to the chimney.
Then sprinkled some Mboss Embossing Powder in white over it and heat set with my heat tool.
To color the background of the piece I just embossed, I sprayed some Fireworks! Spray in Paris Dusk and Fireworks! Spray in London Fog onto my craft mat and placed my embossed cardstock piece with the embossed side down straight into the liquid. Pressing it down to make sure that the spray fully covers the white cardstock and then carefully lift it up. Wipe the spray from the embossed areas and set aside to dry.
I stamped the Santa Claus sentiment using VersaFine Clair in Nocturne
and used a Fantastix
with VersaFine Clair in Glamorous
to color it in. Once my card front piece was fully dry, I adhere it to my card front and attached the sentiment, Santa legs, and chimney to the front with some 3D Foam Squares
Then, I used some DecoArt Snow-Tex around the bottom and top of the chimney, and on the Santas pant bottoms, I used some Radiant Neon Amplify in White.
For my final step, I decided to add some irRESISTible Pico Embellisher in clear to Santas boots and to the sentiment.
I then let everything dry, and my card was complete.
This is such a clever and fun Christmas card! The snow looks fabulous and we love the gloss on the boots and sentiment! Thank you Nadine ♡
