Addicted to Stamps and More #168

Hi guys

My regular late night post means it's time for another new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.  And we're back with one of our regular challenges too...

Addicted to Holidays
We are looking for holiday themes such as Christmas, Easter, public holidays, or of course a vacation/holiday theme

Our sponsors this week are DeeDee's Digis who are offering a $15 coupon for their store, and Rosey Hearts where the prize this week is 5 digis!

I decided to go with the Christmas theme as time is running out and I've not even started making the bulk of my Christmas cards yet!

I used this fun image and sentiment from a set called Merry and Bright by DeeDee's Digis printed onto white cardstock.  I cut out the main image with a stitched tag die and coloured it in with ProMarkers.  I cut another tag from some Christmas patterned paper.  I was going to use a plain white card base but it looked like something was missing so I decided to go with the greens in the image and covered the entire card base with some green cardstock.  I offset the two tags and adhered them in place, punched a hole and added some metallic red cord.  I then used a fishtail flag die to cut out the sentiment and popped this up on 3D foam.

Usually for finishing touches I grab Wink of Stella or Glossy Accents but I tried out something else on this one...white flock!  I got this free with a magazine years ago.  I added a small amount to the 'fur' on his hat.  I've tried to capture it in the pic below.

Materials used:

  • Digi Images: DeeDee's Digis - Merry and Bright
  • Dies: MFT Die-namics - Stitched Tags, Fishtail Flag Stax
  • Patterned Paper: Doodlebug - Santa Express
  • Coloured with ProMarkers
  • Accents: Metallic red cord and white flock from stash
