Gunson Santa meets BG Figgy Paper

I've been looking for a SANTA HEAD image for a long time now. I didn't want him to be too "sketchy" or too "cartoony". Just a nice image to colour in and use for Christmas cards.

My ALL TIME favourite SANTA HEAD stamp is the GUMBALL GRAPHICS SANTA (you can see it here on Nancy's Blog - she used to have one and sold it!!!!).

I also like the Santa Collage from Rubber Stampede . The first one is out of production now and VERY RARE and the second one keeps selling out!

Last week I stumbled upon this one and thought - ooooohhh - I could colour that one very nicely with my new COPIC markers!. So I ordered it from Sherry at Inkspirations and it arrived this week. Very fast shipping I might add!

I also got my 6x6 paper packs of Basic Gray Figgy paper - YUMMMMMY!!!!!

So I put together this card:

Here's a close up of the face & glasses (using Crystal Effects and glitter pen).

Can you see how much I coloured in his hair and beard? I used various shades of light gray COPICS.

This is a close up of the greeting. I used a stamp that read MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS but I omitted the LITTLE by using a black marker instead of an ink pad. I punched it out using the small OVAL punch from SU! and punched out a VELLUM mat using the large OVAL punch from SU!

I picked up some new ribbon from Michaels and thought this black VELVET with red SATIN on the other side would be the right touch for this card.
I like the way it turned out. What do you think?


Marie he is perfect! Great work... you are making me want those Copic markers!!!

That is the most amazing coloring Marie! And his glasses: too perfect!

Hi there, you may be able to find the Rubber Stampede Santa at this site:

Why does the stamp Santa look so different than the santa on the card?
