Happy Saturday........ almost Sunday! These items were my projects for this evening. I got this stamp set from Stampers Anonymous after seeing Tim Holtz do a project with it last fall. And to make a long story short I have waited 10 months for it......... we won't go there. But I stamped the Santa on vanilla cardstock with permanent black, the tree with artichoke and the Believe with Ranger Fired Brick. I then took and sponged to fill all the vanilla paper except around the Santa with fired brick, mustard, old olive and cocoa. I mounted on Kraft cardstock, used a little stickles on the BELIEVE and that is it.

My second project are the tags that actually inspired me and hooked me on the stamp set. I did the stamping/sponging the same and then I took some grunge elements and embossed them with silver and attached them. The numbers are ones I got a long time ago and I can't tell you anything about them unfortunately. Won't they make wonderful gift tags for the holidays? I just love this set......... I can't wait to use it more. My youngest son tells me he would be afraid of this Santa (what?)
That is it for today- have a good one. Don't forget my blog candy a couple of posts down.
