Here Comes Santa Claus....

I was so excited to see that the Jingle Belles challenge this week is all about Santa. We love Santa and the spirit of giving in this house! My kids know that if you dont believe in Santa, there wont be any presents under the tree from him. Shoot, Santa lives just  a few hrs north of me, in North Pole Alaska! Can you believe I havent made it up there yet to see him? Yeah, I know, bad me! Anyway, here is the card I came up with.

Supplies used(all supplues SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Star Santa
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Holiday Treasures DSP, watercolor paper
Ink: StazOn Black, Cherry Cobbler, So Saffron, Blasic Black, Basic Gray, Early Espresso, Whisper White Craft Ink
Accessories: AquaPainter, Dazzling Diamonds, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Glitter Brads, Chocolate Chip ribbon, Scallop Border punch, dimensionals



  1. wow! that is such a gorgeous card Lisa! Love it. The santa image is lovely and I adore the dimension you have added there with the double stars (I don't have the patience for the colouring or the cutting out but I wish I did when I look at this!) . the background of red with the brown is such an eye catcher and the brads look so stylish! Love this!

  2. I love what you did with the stars, are you planning on making it up to the North Pole?

  3. oh wow♥WOW♥wow!!! miss lisa, if santa didn't already know how much you loved him, this gorgeous card would be proof enough, i am sure! fabulous stamping and coloring here, and i LOVED the panels of color and pattern you've used as your background. all-round ♥FABULOUS♥ here! love it!

  4. Thank you ladies!

    Holly, we had plans to go up to North Pole last October for my birthday, but then my dad passed and I went to Colorado instead. I hope to get up to Fairbanks/North Pole late this summer or this fall.

  5. Lisa, Lisa, Lisa....You've been holding out on me, mama!! This is absolutely drop-dead GORGEOUS!!!!!! Okay, I hate you now, but only because you made this magnificent work of Santa art!! WOWEEE-KAZOWEE!! I ♥ him. So super pretty!! :) (And, I don't really hate you. I'm just envious. ;) )

  6. Lisa, this is so cute. First of all, I love that image - it's so magical and happy. The popped up stars are just perfection. Wonderfully done!

  7. Love the glittery sparkly Santa ... and heck, he's almost your neighbor ... so glad you joined our jingle belles fun.

  8. Love the detail work on this card. The glitter and the dimension of the stars is perfect. Fantastic job.
