Thanks for coming by from my wonderful friend Merit‘s blog.

It really is the most wonderful time of year – the 2018 holiday catalog is live!  I love all the fun new products, Stampin’ Blend markers, tins, ribbons, stamps and Designer Series Papers.  I am once again participating in our Fun n Crafty stampers blog hop and swap.  It’s always fun to see what my fellow crafters create.  What makes are swaps so much fun is that we all pick a different stamp set to use. Meet my fun, beachy little Santa!

For So Santa I did a few things I don’t normally do!  But I just love this beachy little Santa so much.  I mean, I really do feel like I should be on the beach with him right now.  I used several of our new Stampin’ Blends to color in the image.  To get his beard a bit lighter I used the light basic gray and then used the color lifter over that to give it a lighter look.  The sand is where I really stepped up my game and tried something I have never done before.

I used our stamping emboss paste!  To get the sand color – I did the first layer in Crumb Cake and the second layer in Saraha Sand.  I just added a few drops of reinker to the paste and mixed it up.  I took an old tooth brush and dabbed it into the paste then dabbed it on the paper.  Once the paste dried – I applied Wink of Stella over it to give it a bit of shimmer!

Now, it’s time to send you off to my talented friend Jennifer’s blog!
