The new So Santa stamp set is a real cutie. The images are of Santa having some fun, and the sentiments are as fun as the images. I’ve really enjoyed playing with this set!

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Pool Party card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″ 
  • Basic Black CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Shimmery White CS cut to 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″
  • Optional: Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 3″

Stamped with the So Santa stamp set:

  • Santa and sentiment in Stazon tuxedo black ink onto the Shimmer White CS layer

Colored using Stampin’ Blends Markers:

  • scooter in Granny Apple Green
  • bag and straps in Soft Suede
  • face in Ivory

Colored using Stampin’ Write Markers:

  • suit, hat, and bows in Real Red
  • tires, boots, belt, gloves, and sunglasses in Basic Gray
  • wheels and exhaust in Smoky Slate
  • gifts in Pear Pizzazz
  • Teddy Bear in Crumb cake
  • flecked the Shimmery White CS layer using a Pool Party marker, covering Santa with a scrap of CS

Colored using an Aqua Painter:

  • ground in Pool Party
  • NOTE: There are a few ways to do this:
  • 1) Squeeze the Pool Party ink pad so some ink gets on the inside of the lid. Open the pad and use the lid as your palette.
  • 2) Use the ink pad to put some ink onto a clear acrylic block, and use the block as your palette.
  • 3) Use an ink refill to put a few drops of Pool Party ink onto the clear acrylic block.

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Shimmer White CS layer glued onto the Basic Black CS layer
  • Basic Black CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • Optional: Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
