Waiting For Santa

Hi Stampers!

Today is Tuesday which means we start a new Loves Rubberstamps Challenge today :) This week we are being sponsored by the awesome KennyK! Our design team created inspirational projects using images from his amazing line of stamps! This week our theme is Let It Snow - so we want to see some sort of snow feature on your project. Here is what I came up with for my project.

I decided I wanted to use a non-traditional Christmas color and image for my card so I decided to use the Queen's Cutie from the Glam Gang Series. I made this "window sill" for her to sit on while she is waiting for Santa. Little does she know he is streaking by in the sky out the window :) Here is a closer look at the window area:

I used A Close To My Heart stamp set that I had for my Santa Image and then an old PSX stamp for the tree line. I covered whisper white cardstock in the Midnight Muse ink from Stampin Up to create my night sky before stamping my images in whisper white ink and covering with iridescent ice to make it look like snow. I drew snowflakes with a white gel pen.

Here is a close up of my Queen's Cutie...


I colored her with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers and then cut her out and popped her up on dimensionals. My Sentiment is from the Flourishes stamp set Dear Santa. My background paper is from the Authentique 6x6 Paper Pack Peaceful.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to play along with us this week :)

Happy Stampin!
