Santa's comin.....

Hello to all my lovely blog followers.... well for the past couple of weeks I've been playing with my lovely Visible Image stamps. I'm a HUGE fan of VI, their stamps are amazing. Great designs, excellent quality and they always deliver in super quick time!! Check out the Visible Image website here

I bought a couple, few, loads, of new stamps in their black Friday sale and I still can't decide on my favourite.....

But here's what I did with the Vintage Santa stamp.

I made a Christmas tag using kraft card as the base. I stamped Santa's beard numerous times around the edge of the kraft card to create a soft background.

I stamped the Vintage Santa stamp on to card and cut it out using a Spellbinders die and inked around the edges.

I created mini berry and holly leaf bundles and tied a knot of red ribbon and stuck it in the center. 

To finish, I tied a wide piece of green organza ribbon through the hole in the top of the tag and heated it with the heat gun to create a crinkled effect.

I absolutely adore this stamp, it can be used in many different ways from using the whole image, to breaking it up in parts. 

What I used...

* Super smooth card
