Here Comes Santa Claus!

Hi all and Happy Friday! I have an extra special affair for you today. Power Poppy has something to share that just sprouted in their  Instant Garden. I have to say that it is so stinkin' will just HAVE to have it in your digi collection! It sparkles. It glitters. It's FULL of Christmas flair! 

Let's get right to it and give you a little sneaky peek of Glittering Glass Santa! 

After printing this little guy on Cougar Opaque White Card Stock, I grabbed a few of my Copic Markers to bring him to life! I used R01, R14, R21, R24, R27, R29. C00, C01, C03, BG0000, BG01, YG13, G20, G07, G20, G40, G43, G48, E00, RV00, RV02. Once I was done, the rest is pretty simple! I used a stitched border die, added a little grosgrain ribbon, a little gold cording with a mini jingle bell added and then matted it all up! The sentiment is also from this digital stamp set. I colored with the same reds and blues that I used in my main image. And, as you can see, I did add some white paint pen accents and glitter glue! 

Here's a peek at the inside! I used a sentiment from Power Poppy's Poinsettia stamp set (used Espresso Truffle Memento Ink) and a little accent stamp (used Toffe Crunch Memento Ink) from the Bough Wow Wow stamp set

Here's a peek.....

And, here's a close up!

And that, my friends, is it! This whimsical Santa is a perfect addition to Power Poppy's already chocked full holiday collection! Sure, it might be a wee bit early to think Christmas, but we have lots of cards to dole out during the holiday season! It's a list you'll be adding to and definitely checking twice! So, get a jump start! ;-) You can find all of Power Poppy's Instant Garden Digital Stamps RIGHT HERE! Adding Santa to your stamp room is as easy as clicking a download link from the email that’s sent to you after purchase, then printing, coloring, creating, and (most importantly) enjoying! 

My fellow Bloomies have been busy bringing this little Santa to life! You'll have to stop on by and see their take on this sweet image! For the full link list, please visit.....

Before I go, I do have an important announcement for all those in Power Poppy Land! If you haven't taken part in this month's Power & Spark Challenge, now's your time!

You always have the most beautiful cards Julie! I love the die cut double stitched panel with your soft and subtle shaded Santa. He's so handsome! Love the touch of deep teal around the edges!

Oh, Julie, I just love this Santa, and you've really made a beautiful card with it! I just love the glitter on, and what a great layout with the dotted DP and the ribbon, cord, and little jingle bell. And what a sweet inside...great reminder about using that set with the pretty border. Hugs!
