Santa Is On His Way!

Hello! We are on the final count down to Christmas now with just a week until Christmas Eve. Lynda Hall is here with an awesome new Christmas card featuring our Santa stamp and Boot Prints stencil..



Christmas is almost upon us and this is my last official Visible Image post for the year. And what a year it has been! I think we are all ready for a rest and some good cheer, and who better to bring it than Santa Claus himself, and so he had to feature today.

I started the card by smooshing and spritzing some distress oxides on mixed media card.



I then used Luna Paste through the Boot Prints stencil. Sooooo sparkly!!!



I stamped a few snowflakes from the Snowman Jack set once the paste was dry,  and the ‘HO’ from the Santa Claus set then set to work creating a snowy effect around the prints.



I use Get Crackled from Pretty Gets Gritty and Pinflair Gellitex for added sparkle, and adhered some Polyballs from Artful Days into it for added texture.



While that dried, I stamped and coloured Santa with Copic markers and embossed the sentiment.



I assembled with 3d glue gel to add more dimension and mat and layered onto mirror card to finish off.

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus Card | Visible Image Stamps

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.



Next, using the Visible Image Cosmic Skies Stencil I used VersaMark and pressed it over the stencil onto a white piece of cardstock.



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 ♡
