The DP's I have used are Pink Paislee "Father Christmas" and these are soooo yummy ! I have machine stitched them all.
The image is by La La Land Crafts and this is "Santa Marci" - isn't she the cutest ? Simon Says Stamp has just started stocking these stamps and carries a huge range of them ! She has been coloured with a mix of ProMarkers and Copics. I have covered her trimmings with Diamond Stickles
I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder "Snowflakes" and I cut the embossing out with Nestabilities Large Deckled Rectangles
The chipboard Christmas tree is from my stash. I inked it with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and then added some Diamond Stickles to it.
The sentiment has been made using some ribbon from my stash, a tag cut from Nestabilities Tags Five and words from a Hero Arts sentiment sent to me in my DT pack from Heidi.
The flower is from my stash. I took out the stamens and placed a punched snowflake in the centre and then replaced the stamens. The snowflake is from a Martha Stewart snowflake punch.
From here you need to go to the super talented Linda Coughlin for more inspiration :-) I would appreciate a comment if you would like to leave one
