Stella - Dear Santa

Stella - Dear Santa is one of seven new rubber stamp sets released this month from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I used the digi version, and after printing it out, Copic markers were used to color the image.  Then I fussy cut out the entire thing.  This message just makes me laugh out loud 😄.

Collegiate Garnet glitter was added to her belt buckle and the word "Santa".  To apply the glitter to the word, first outline it with a glue pen (I used a Sakura glue pen) and then cover with the glitter of your choice.

Green Iris glitter accents her hat and shoes and Nuvo Crystal Drops (Morning Dew) was added to the ornaments. Nuvo Gilding Flakes (Sunkissed Copper) was added to the edges by first applying glue from the large Nuvo glue pen.  Let the glue dry for a little bit.  Once the glue feels tacky to the touch, add the guilding flakes.  Save all the excess and place back in the jar.

Crafters Companion embossing folders were used to create texture on both the circle behind the image (Christmas Merriment) as well as the cranberry layer (Distress).  Distress Ink was used on the circle to have the raised areas pop with a touch of color.

Anne, the distressed gilded flakes around the edge of your card panel look beautiful! Your coloring and highlights in Stella's hair also look great! Love the fussy cutting and that terrific embossing folder in the background! But I especially like your twisted ribbon, entwined and doing its own thing. I imagine that was difficult to get it to weave through those perfect places! Love that idea! Thanks! Happy Day after, my friend! hugs, de
