Stampers Dozen Blog Hop October 2018


Hello stampin' friends, I'm so glad you've stopped by today!  If you haven't been to my blog before, WELCOME...I hope you'll stop by often!  Today I'm participating in the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop so you'll get a chance to see several ideas stamped by some talented demonstrators.  I hope you enjoy these projects!

Our theme this month is a color challenge:

I love this color combination!  I had a couple of ideas for ways to use it and ended up going with the Christmas project.  I just LOVE this funny little Santa!  Here's my card:

This adorable beach Santa image can be found in the So Santa stamp set.  I used this set a couple of days ago on another project (click HERE to see it) and every time I use it, it just makes me smile!

I kept this card really simple so that Santa is the star!  I stamped the sentiment and Santa in black StazOn ink onto a piece of watercolor paper in the bottom right corner.  The Santa image is colored with an aqua painter and ink from the lids of Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Pool Party and a touch of Granny Apple Green, Crumb Cake and Petal Pink stamp pads.  How stinkin' CUTE is he??

Once the watercolor image was dry, I gave the whole piece a good splatter with a Wink of Stella pen, then adhered it to a Poppy Parade card base.  And that's it...easy peasy!  One of my secret fears is white space...I'm learning that every space doesn't have to be filled with something to be considered "finished".  What do you think?

If you're interested in the set and products I used on this project, you'll find them at the bottom of this post in the product showcase.  Otherwise, you can click the link below to be magically transported across the sea to the UK to see how Laura Mackie used this fun color combination!




Thank you again for stopping by!  Join me again tomorrow when I'll be participating in the Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop with some amazingly talented demonstrators!  I'll also be doing a Facebook Live Stamp Class tomorrow afternoon (Sunday) at 3:00 pm (PST).  You can find me at  I'd love to have you join me!
