Fab Friday 126 – MFT Stamps Santa’s Elves – Black Friday Crafty Sales
This week we have a color challenge:
Well, what could you do with this color combination except a Christmas card? So that’s what I did! I chose MFT Stamp’s Santa’s Elves for the stamp set and when I went to save the photos I discovered something quite extraordinary! I used the same set exactly 2 years ago to make a card for another Fab Friday challenge, a sketch challenge! I made this last night after I recovered from making, eating, and cleaning up Thanksgiving dinner. Lookie:
STINKIN’ CUTE! I love this set and had a lot of fun coloring it with Copic markers.
I added a little bit of Wink of Stella clear over the ornament, the jingle bell on the elf’s hat, and added a few sparkles on his cheeks a la The Santa Clause!
I also added some details with my favorite Sakura Stardust pen. After I had gotten the whole card put together, I decided that the white space over the elf’s head was too big and prominent, so I carefully stamped snowflakes around all the images, using Altenew’s Arctic ink.
I used MFT’s Circle Burst stencil with Emerald Envy ink to create a cute pattern on the Lemon Lime Twist card stock. I stamped the greeting directly on this piece with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I added some Wink of Stella clear to the Emerald Envy frame that I cut using MFT’s Single Stitch Line Frame dies. A couple of Doodlebug Gold Glitter Sprinkles added a nice finishing touch.
This card is so happy, and that makes me happy too!
Below is my list of products that I used, and I have used compensated affiliate links where they were available, as I now participate in affiliate programs for Simon Says Stamp, Amazon, Ellen Hutson LLC, Scrapbook.com, Gina K, Sizzix, and Blick Art Supplies. Stampin’ Up! links lead to my BFF Wendy Weixler’s store, whose friendship is something I highly value, and I’m always happy to throw business her way. She does not reimburse me for doing so. If you have your own demo, you can of course change over to them. Buying through these links costs you nothing extra and helps support my blog and my artistic endeavors, and I thank you.
This is a great day to be shopping too, as there are some great crafty sales!
