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...
Sentiments - Pink Petticoat Tiny Christmas Sentiments (unavailable now)
Dies - Spellbinders Circle and Scalloped Circle, Old Stampin Up punch

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...
I'm enjoying making in miniature at the moment - there's more to come tomorrow... see you then!
