Art With Heart Blog Hop September - Holiday Catalogue Theme

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring the Holiday Catalogue. We hope our blog hop inspires you to get creative and make some fabulous Christmas creations. If you would like a copy of the Holiday Catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

This Santa and friends from Sign of Santa stamp set and framelits bundle are soooo cute..

I love colouring with the Stampin' Blends markers and these images are perfect to colour.

The first card I made features Santa and Mrs Claus. They were both coloured using Blends in the following colours, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Smoky Slate, Petal Pink and Shaded Spruce. The background DSP are from the Santa's Workshop Speciality DSP and the card base is Shaded Spruce.

And a close up.

The next card features the same bundle, this time the cheeky elves. The elves were coloured with Shaded Spruce, Poppy Parade, Petal Pink and Daffodil Delight Blends, then cut out with the thinlits.
The stack presents was stamped directly onto the Whisper White background. The bottom right corner of the Whisper White was sponged with Pool Party ink. The card base is Bermuda Bay.

 Close up of the super cute elves.

The final card features Santa and his elf getting ready for Christmas. I need to start thinking about this too, eeek! 
Back to the card, all images were stamped directly onto the Whisper White and then coloured with Stampin Blends Markers.

The night sky was sponged with Night of Navy after I masked the images to prevent them being sponged. It doesn't show very well in the photo but there is a strip of White Glimmer paper above and below the image, followed by a this strip of Night of Navy cardstock.

Now it's time to see what the amazing Alisha Watson has to show us...
