ATSM #113 - Holiday

Hi there and welcome! I hope you enjoy my card today which has been made especially for the new challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More - Holiday theme.

You can choose ANY holiday you want. I have chosen Christmas because I really need to make more so using the Holiday challenge is a bonus. 

I have used an image from our terrific sponsor over at Eureka Stamps - Santa on Skis. 

Here is my DT card -

Isn't this Santa just the cutest. Because it is stinking hot here at Christmas, I always have fun making snow scenes. I'd love to see a White Christmas one day - it's on my bucket list. 

I have coloured him with my Spectrum Noir markers - here is the list in case you would like to give it a go.

Santa clothing - DR1, DR2, DR4, DR6, DR7
Santas white areas - GG1, GG2
Face - FS8, CR3, CR5
Background - IB1, IB2, IB3, BT8

Can you see the snow that I have added? I bought a tub of 'True Snow' a few weeks ago and this is the first time I have used it. Pretty cool! Here is a close up for you -

The little tag is from the SU Snow Pals set. I've never used the tag stamp before. The sentiment is from SU Petite Pairs set.

With all these new things that I haven't used before, I would like to link my card up to Darnells NBUS Challenge #2 where I have chosen option #1 to create a Christmas card.

Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

I would also like to link up to these wonderful challenges -

  7. Yes, in fact, he is just the cutest Santa baby EVER, Kylie! I love you whole sweet card design and that snow has me fascinated! That's a new one to me and I'm going to have to check into it! I think the twins would be all over using that schtuff on a card ... and quite possible as frosting on a gag gift cupcake. Not that I would ever encourage such naughtiness!!
