The best Stampin’ Up! Santa’s List handmade Christmas card

 

Stampin’ Up! Santa’s List Stamp Set was a favorite of many.  This Santa’s List Christmas card was my absolute favorite of all of them received during the swap.  What put this handmade Christmas card over the top was coupling it with the Stampin’ Up! Post Card Stamp.  Do they not look like they were made for each other?

 

 my favorite Santa's List card

 

Speaking of made for each other, the 2 cent stamp in the upper right corner is from the Stampin’ Up! Postage Due Stamp Set.  The artist stamped right over Place Stamp Here.  Just following directions.  🙂  With the Basic Black Classic Stampin’ Pad ink, you need to look to see the Place Stamp Here underneath. 

 

Last week I showed you a Christmas card with the Postcard and Festive Flurry Stamp Set.  If you missed it, you will want to see it too.

 

The Stampin’ Up! Santa’s List Stamp Set is a limited-edition stamp set from the 2013 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  That means it is only available to order in my online store through January 2, 2014!

 

And while there getting the Santa’s List Stamp Set, remember to also order the Stampin’ Up! Post Card StampWe have seen two beautiful hand made Christmas cards made with it.  Just think of all the other kinds of cards you could make with it too.  This stamp is getting added to my list.

 

 

Stampin’ Up! Santa’s List card gets a makeover

 

My girlfriend picked the Stampin’ Up! Santa’s List Stamp Set for this year’s Christmas cards.  I came home from Founder’s Circle with quite a few card ideas for her.  This one was her favorite.

 

Stampin' Up! Santa's List card idea

 

She then decided she’d love the card even more if the metal was in warm gold instead of cool silver with the Crumb Cake Card Stock.  Easy enough to do.

 

Stampin' Up! Santa's List Card Idea 

We replaced the Antique Brad with Linen Thread because it is a brushed metal and the Gold Foil Sheets are shiny.  This also worked well because it made her handmade Christmas cards more economical.  Hard to beat looking good at a less expensive price. 🙂

 

She liked it better but the card was not just the look she wanted.  The gold looked new against the vintage look of the Crumb Cake Card Stock, especially with the sponging around it.  So, I gave her another option.

 

Santa's List Card Makeover

 

Remember the Brushed Gold Card Stock?  Just one more small touch.

 

Stampin' Up! Brushed Gold Card Stock

 

Sponged onto the Brushed Gold Card Stock is a little Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  She was pleased.  We had settled on what her Christmas card design would be for this year.

 

The original Santa’s List card was her favorite of the about 10 from the swap.  If you prefer the original over the makeover card, you will find all the stamping supplies listed below so you can make it like the original artist.  The supplies are available to order in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com.

Santa’s List will have Stampin’ Up! written down as nice

 

“He’s making a list and checking it twice . . . ”  is one of the greetings from the new Stampin’ Up! Santa’s List stamp set.  Stampin’ Up! will certainly be on his nice list.  They keep bringing wonderful new stampin’ toys to us throughout the year.  The Santa’s List stamp set is just one of many.

 Stampin' Up! Santa's List Stamp Set

 

Santa’s coat is so detailed that it looked almost solid black when I stamped it.  I was seriously considering just giving him a wash in Crumb Cake Classic Stampin’ Pad ink and calling it vintage.  Before I knew it, I was watercoloring his coat in Cherry Cobbler Classic Stampin’ Pad ink (the striped designer paper had already been picked out before I started).  As you can see in the picture, the black was easily colored.   At least with a dark like Cherry Cobbler.

 

Stampin' Up Santa's List Stamp Set

 

The shading on his beard, cuffs on his and  trim  on his hat were down with Crumb Cake Classic Stampin’ Pad ink.  His list with Soft Suede.  Crumb cake would have been my first choice, actually it was, but it did not have any contrast against the trim of his coat.  His face with Blushing Bride. 

 

Stampin' Up! Deco Labels Collection Framelits Dies

 

The bit of decoration added is Crumb Cake Card Stock die-cut with the new Stampin’ Up! Deco Labels Collection Framelits.  Just a bit of it peeking out from behind.  Like a child trying to get a peek at Santa putting gifts under the tree.

 

The touch of ribbon is a small piece of the limited-edition 1″ Cherry Cobbler Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon from the Holiday Catalog.

The Cherry Cobbler striped paper is from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Style Designer Series Paper.  It looks like candy cane stripes.  How fitting for Santa Claus.
