Santa Claws

Hello! I hope my US friends had a joyful Thanksgiving, and for those overseas, a lovely week! I was quite inspired by this week’s Macabre Monday, as usual…and I came up with an idea that I thought was pretty damn funny!

Santa-Claws-1

As soon as I saw the challenge, I knew what I wanted to do. So I quickly printed out Freddy, one of Strange Skin’s freakin’ amazing images. Then he sat there for a couple of days… Hey! I was sick! Anywho…I finally got to color him in, and I removed his hat and the souls that are usually flying around him…just go to Strange Skin to see what I mean! I made his sweater have a real holiday feel by using traditional red and green, added some sprigs of holly, and of course, that ridiculous foam Santa Hat that I jacked from my kids (Just kidding. I asked them politely first if I could have it. No. Really!)

Santa-Claws-2

Isn’t he festive??? Then of course, I needed to add those fabulous “claw” marks from Smeared Ink, plus some wonderful smudges of Fired Brick Distress Ink.

Santa-Claws-3

I wrote “Santa Claws” all scratchy-like and, as per my sister Pam’s suggestion, I added some Gold Stickles to the letters for some extra holiday cheer. I thought about adding some to my 3 layers of drippy blood at the top, but I thought that was…well…overkill.

I hope I gave you a good laugh with my card! Now I just need to figure out which unsuspecting friend will receive it! If you ask me nice enough…it could be you!!! Now, sing it with me…”1, 2, Freddy’s coming for you…..”

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team will be sharing projects that fit the theme, "Dear Santa, I've Been Good!" I used the sweet Christmas Package stencil (which frankly, can be used for plenty of other occasions too!), and a scrap I had leftover from the Chevron Stencil. Check out the full tutorial below.

Directions:

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
