Little Santa Agenda....


Hi Lovely Bloggers...

Guess what I've been up to??  Santa has made his presence felt in my craft room...  and I've been colouring this little guy  (and I MEAN little, he only measures less than1 inch tall!) in all his different poses.. then wondering how to use them..... hmmmm....

Well inspiration hit this morning, when I came across some tiny little cards in a darker kraft colour tucked in my drawer..  they are just 3.5 x 3.5 inches.  I'd already fussy cut my Santa's one evening while I was watching TV.. so they were ready to use.  I used my old Spellbinders dies for the circle and scalloped circle... then used Distress Inks for the sky.  Then I cut a few extra white circles, so that I could cut out a snowy slope for him to stand on.  A little flurry of snow behind him (with my Sharpie white pen), and a bit of magic sparkle for Santa, and they were ready to go on a card.  I added some old Pink Petticoat sentiments, punched out with an old Stampin' Up punch - and they were finished!  I do have a lot more to make though, as I'd coloured and cut lots of these little guys!!

Here's close-ups of the guy in red...

See?  I knew there was a reason I'd hung on to these older things...  I am a true hoarder... but eventually stuff comes in handy...

Big hugs

How in the world did you colour those teensy little images? oh my goodness! And then cut them out too?! You truly are a master cutter! This image would be missing a LOT of parts if I tried a stunt like that. haha!!
