This special bundle is only for a limited time and while supplies last!

My hop card features Dear Santa by Cheryl Grant. I absolutely LOVE this fun Santa image!! I stamped him in Memento Desert Sand Ink and coloured with Copic markers. Additional shading was added using a black Conte crayon applied with a paper blending stump. I used my Cutterbee scissors to fussy cut the image. I always use coordinating markers to go around the edges of my cut images to hide the white paper core. All paper edges were inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Finally I added a bit of twine and a little dollar store tree. 



Here's the full stamp set:

Thanks for visiting...happy shopping!

Blessings,
