Splitcoaststampers Challenge 300 (SC300) Jolly Old Saint Nick

Isn't He Fabulous!?!  I just love this Santa image from the Jolly Old Saint Nick stamp set from Stampin' Up!  This is a six image stamp set that is in Stampin' Up! 2010 Holiday Mini Catalog.  If you would like to order this stamp set, please click HERE and order anytime from my website. 

To dress Him up a bit, I used a 2-Way Glue Pen and then applied some Dazzling Diamonds to make Santa sparkle.  Also used the Designer Series Paper, Candy Cane Christmas which is also featured in the 2010 Holiday Mini Catalog as well as the Northern Frost Decorative Sizzlet Strip to create the cute little Baha Blue snowflake.  I stamped the Merry Christmas image from the Delightful Decorations stamp set, punched it out with our 3/4" Circle Punch and used Dimensionals to adhere the snowflake to the card.  To trim out the card I used Real Red cardstock.

To color my image I used a Copic marker (E25 Caribe Cocoa) on Santa's face and Copic marker R29 (Lipstick Red) on Santa's hat.  Yes, I know that these are not Stampin' Up! products, but in my defense, Stampin' Up! does not make a skin tone marker  that represents my skin tone, so I turned to Copic.

This card is also my submission on Splitcoaststampers for this week's sketch challenge, SC300.  If you want to play along go to and submit your card.

If you would like to make this card yourself, contact me and book a Workshop.  Thanks for stopping by, have a Stampin' Good Day and Happy World Card Making Day.


  1. Love the way you "dressed him up." Now I want to go back and add glitter to all mine!! Beautiful skin tone by the way; you need to approach SU support about "why" they don't have this color (might just be a matter that nobody has asked before????) Thanks for sharing.

  2. Love how you dressed him up. I really love the skin tone. Just has Sandy said I wish that SU had different skin tone colors, not everyone comes in blush blossom LOL.
