I've had this Rubber Stampede 'Santa' stamp on my wish list since I saw Kathy's post last year. As Kathy mentioned the stamp is hard to find, so I was over the moon to see some used Christmas stamps for sale on eBay, and Santa was in one of the boxes! I'm entering Merry Monday 'Red & Turquoise' challenge, the Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes' and The Merry Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes + Christmas'.
Card: 5" x 5" white silk
Stamp: Rubber Stampede 'Santa Collage'
Die: My Favourite Things Die-namics 'Tag You're It'
Ink: Versafine Crimson Red
Snippets: Turquoise matt and white silk card, Lili of the Valley 'Festive Trimmings' paper, turquoise ribbon
I used my last piece of red paper from the 'Festive Trimmings' pad and tidied the edges to make a square. I layered it onto a piece of turquoise card to highlight the writing on the paper before attaching it to the centre of the card front. As the die is solid I decided to die cut the tag first and then stamp the image. The stamp was wooden mounted but I was able to peel it carefully from the wooden block so I could use it in my MISTI. I placed the die cut tag into MISTI before laying the stamp on top and stamping the Santa image a couple of times using Crimson Red ink. The tag was attached to the front of the card with double sided tape and I attached a small bow made from a snippet of ribbon using Tacky Glue.
