Jolly Santa

Hello there! Whenever I heard the word J-O-L-L-Y, I always thought of Santa Claus! So when I saw this really cute Santa from this blog, I just had to CASE it. LOL. And since I had that glitter paper from Marcella K that I've used a couple of times for my ornaments, I thought that same glitter paper (in red!) would look great as Santa's hat! I simply punched out a 1 1/4" square, cut it half, used the first half as Santa's top hat, and a portion of the second half with the pom-pom. Easy peasy!

I had been in a red-and-green mode for Christmas cards. So I knew my Santa had to come with the red striped pattern from SU's Merry Moments DSP. The beautiful red ribbon is from Michael's. And the sentiment is from SU's "Jolliest Time of the Year".

Stamp: Jolliest Time of the Year

Ink: Basic Black

Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black, Blush Blossom, Pretty in Pink cardstock; Merry Moments DSP; glitter cardstock from Marcella K

Accessories: red ribbon from Michaels; SU 1 1/4" square punch, scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1/4" circle punch, crystal effects (used as glue).

Thanks for looking!

Mojo Monday 111

Hi! I wanted something Christmas-sy for my Mojo Monday entry; and I could not find the "perfect" stamp set I would like to use. I did not have any SU wreath stamps so I took out my small SU star punch and started punching away, using Certain Celery and Old Olive cardstock.

Using crystal effects as glue, I adhered all the stars onto a 1 3/4" circle (punched out 0f course) of Whisper White cardstock. I used this circle as my guide so my wreath would come out in a somewhat round manner, or whatever semblance of roundness... LOL. I adhered my all-time favorite red swarovski crystal rhinestones randomly around the wreath. I then took several inches of a satin ribbon and shaped it into a bow, and using crystal effects again, stuck the bow onto the wreath. And there you have it, my mojo card. I hope you like it! Thanks for looking -
